Ritalin Dosing Schedules

What are people's experiences with dosing schedules with Ritalin - to maximize the benefits and avoid the ups and downs and side effects?

I was given flexibility and just wondering what sort of dosing schedules people have found works for them.

Re: Ritalin Dosing Schedules

I just started and I take one 5mg at 8am and the second dose at 2pm, idk if this is the right way, it's just what I'm trying right now. I may need to go up a dose soon though.

Re: Ritalin Dosing Schedules

If i didnt take 36mg/54mg concerta that day, i take 15-10mg ritalin every 2.5 hours or 3
I have tried 4 before but probably i am not slow metabolizer so i am feeling the down if i try every 4 hours
the maximum amount that i tried is 20mg every 2.5-3 hours
