Smile 30 xr ritalin

Hello, I have been prescribed to take 30 xr methylphenidate every day for the past year, but find that after taking it for multiple days in a row I get so tired and can concentrate almost less than without medication. I do normally/sometimes drink coffee in the morning with it, but stay fairly hydrated. I generally take it at about 10 am and go to bed at 12 am (usually). has anyone had this experience and have any tips on how to stay energized? i have been diagnosed add for about 4 years and am now in college, so i am very busy and always doing work, so i definitely need my medication. ANY tips for those of you who take extended would be so greatly appreciated. (some sidenotes: i didnt start taking it every day until about 7 months ago because i did not like how the ir i was prescribed made me zombie like and very irritable when it was wearing off, i recently started to get very bad depression like withdrawals if i didnt take it for around 3 days)

Re: 30 xr ritalin

How many hours do you sleep after ritalin? And did ritalin improve your sleep quality?
If ritalin doesn't help you to concentrate so why do you take it? Have you ever tried any other meds like adderall or vyvanse?
