Side effects

Since going to 54mg one week ago I have started having some side effects. They include; cold hands and feet, feeling way more emotional than Iím used to ( tearey), very lethargic, a little agitated, unmotivated and spaced out. I didnít experience all of these symptoms at first. The emotional aspect was strong at first but has waned a bit. But, though not present the first few days the spaced out lethargic feeling has now become dominate.

I did not experience any of these symptoms prior on 18 or 36mg. I could tell a slight slowing of my cognition on the 36mg about 8 hours after taking it. Though I wasnít at a 100% on the 36mg it was helping a good bit.

Are my side effects normal when the dose is too high?

Would it be best to drop back down to 36mg and maybe start a Ritalin booster for the afternoon early evening?

Thanks

Re: Side effects

Have you considered asking for the doses to be split up for twice a day? Like 36mg in the am and 18 in the pm?
