Suggest Dosage For Methylphenidate While Treating ADHD
Hello, and thanks for your question.
Rather than switch medications, I would try to maximize the dose of what you're already taking. Methylphenidate can be increased to a slighly higher dose. I would talk with your prescribing doctor about increasing the dose before switching to a different medication -- usually if one is working or has a history of working, it is best to stick with it.
2. generally, if i have built up a tolerance to the Methylphenidate IR, would i already have a tolerance to dexmethylphenidate IR that I've never taken before?
3. next time i make a medication change, please list in order (#1 to #4) that you would recommend i try from these 3 new medications. (focalin, desoxyn, Evekeo) that I've never taken and adderall that i haven't taken in the last 12-14 months.
5. are there any other stimulant medications, generic or non-generic we should also consider along with the 4 mentioned above when a med change id needed?
