i developped a high tolerence on Ritalin which was perscribed to me after the late detection of ADHD at the age of thirty, so i increased the doses without consulting with my doctor, and today, for example, i took so far 22 pills (220 milligrams) and had 4 cans of beer. how come i didn't overdose yet and why is the effect of ritalin wearing out less than one hour?
Hi, Yes I have been there taking the same high dosage ,- even higher because my system was immune to it. With alcohol I was fine - had no desire to OVER DRINK, and just having 2 drinks, I was the life of the party,,more hyper/ Happy,/ EXTREMELY talkative, .. Which I have had many ask if I was on Cocaine.. - (NOT AT ALL THE IMPRESSION I WANTED OTHERS TO PERCEIVE OF ME)..After a month or two, and feeling that I had grown addictive.. I started having EXTREME SUICIDAL thoughts and feeling depressed..Which for my own sanity, I took a weekend break and just slept, and switched to a different dosage Concerta & Ritalin, which was a total of 86mg. and much better.
