... So your dose can vary between 28 and 92mg of Methylphenidate every morning? Wow. Talk to your doctor again, and you may need a second opinion. 72mg (4 18mg tablets) is the maximum recommended dose for Concerta for treatment of ADHD.

... I've never taken ritalin, but I have taken adderall and focalin. I quit the adderall because it was really difficult to deal with as it wore off and seemed to depress my personality too much, if that makes sense.
