Well, It actually is too much, most doctors wouldn't even recommend an dosage above 60mg a day. My advice is to talk to your doctor again.

It is also illegal in some countries to prescribe over 60 mg per day.

My partner tried Ritalin recently, and was taking 80-100mg per day. He ended up in a mental hospital with psychosis and is still recovering. Be careful!

Heck yeah Ritalin can cause major psychosis. The dopamine in your brain goes haywire and it's like freaking out on speed. Not the most fun you'll ever have.

Re: 150 mgs a day

My doctor recommends me not to take more than 60 mg, but he allows me to take 70 or 80 mg if I really feel I need it.

However, 150 mg is a huge dose. Be careful, that's all I can say.

it's like freaking out on speed?

I'd say it IS freaking out on speed .. infact, I'd say it's overdosing on speed. No?

I remember at one point, I was taking 45-50mg of dexadrine a day .. and, well, let's just say it wasn't pretty.

Re: 150 mgs a day

Stimulant psychosis has just as much to do with not sleeping/eating as the drugs themselves.

Re: 150 mgs a day

im on 40mg dose and i feel over calm if anything. yesterday I virtually fel asleep 2 hours after taking it (but thats normal for me at that time)

my pdoc is puting me on a single dose at 10am over 12 days increasing it from 10mg to 60mg, to find the theraputic range, and wanted mt to stop if i felt over agitated.

30mg was just about noticble.

my feet did stop fidgeting for a bit today and on 30mg too, and felt more control over my thoughts/actions.

however in the evening I got rather short tempered wich is unpleasant.

it hasnt done much for the tiredness, wich is why i sought help 13 years ago when it got so bad disabled me, where as dexedrine (90mg/day) did a lot to help that.
I dont think i was so aware of wether or not it helped me with my adhd type symtpoms, i had sever anxiety due to gros medical ineptitude.

im wondering if my tiredness and adhd should be treated with diferent medications, perhaps ritalin/provigil ?

Im trying to avoid any posibility that it can be clamined ive pursuaded my pdoc to prescribe speed ! lol. however i have such confidence in this doc that i might discus more openly but on the basis that i want him to be sure he has decided rather than give me what ive asked for.

Re: 150 mgs a day

well,
thanks for the replies.. I guess I have seasonal affective disorder, and I found out that high doses of ritalin does not help at all. so I am taking between 30 mgs and 90/ day, depending on how I feel. it is usually 60, I hope this drug doesnt cause serious damage on me for I have been using it for the long term..
