> hey paulbwell-- i don't think 70mg of ritalin is too high, although 7-70 is sure a large range! i don't know what the upper limit is, but i wouldn't worry about your dose. i take concerta 3 x 27mg a day in the morning, then 20mg of adderall in the afternoon and evening. i'm not sure how much that adds up to in ritalin mgs, but, although some doctors give me dirty looks for being on stimulants at all, no one has said that the dose is too much. and maybe you can handle more being large and male. i'm around 100lbs... in children, dosing is usually by weight in kgs. how long have you been on ritalin, by the way?

Hey Care,

I dont take 7mgs to 70mgs, I have been raised from 6 tabs 60mgs, to 7 tabs 70mgs, It was 20mgs T.I.D but there was 1 more added, notce, because It helps me sleep if Its still active!

So you take 3x 27mg Concerta morning? (each 1 being equivalant to 10mgs IR methylphenidate T.I.D) and 20mgs IR Adderall B.I.D?=
90mgs Methylphenidate day
40mgs Amphetamine Salts day
That sounds like a lot, but I understand you also take many other meds, I think it must be like, 11 or 12 from memory?. You must feel like Elvis at times? LOL

-Is 1 of them Percoset (Oxtcodone)?
-Do you find the Stimulants potentiate the opiates?

I have been on Methylphenidate 1 year.

Thanks
