Hi guys I’m a newly diagnosed adult with adhd. I’ve been put on methylphenidate hydrochloride 5mg once a day for 7 days and then twice a day from then on. I’ve had my first dose today and noticed it helped a little but it’s now early afternoon and I’m beginning to crash. I feel like it’s too early for my doctor to up the dose but it’s at this point during the day I need to concentrate more than anything. Any advice?
5mg isn’t very much and is often taken 3 times a day for all-day effectiveness.
You’re usually started on a small amount before increasing to see if you tolerate it.
You’re lucky that you’re finding a difference on 5mg. It’s only meant to last 3-4 hours,
so why don’t you take it at the time of day when it would be most beneficial?
Yeah I didn’t think I’d feel anything but for the first 3 hours it works, but then an hour or so later it starts to wear right off. I still find myself losing focus but it’s not as bad as before. My issue is, my job means that I need the effects from 8 til about 5/6 so i could take it later in the day but I’d need the impact earlier too if that makes sense. I’ll see how I get on next week when my dose increases to 2x a day and then speak to my doctor about increasing the dose.
