I am having a proplem with my ADD ever since I started taking meds again. I have been taking 60mg Ritalin a day- Three doses of 20mg. And I am also taking Effexor 225mg.
About 10 years ago I was taking 120mg of Ritalin and 40mg Paxil... That worked great for me! Now, my dotor tells me that I can only have 60mg a day because of FDA "sugested" limit. So I was wondering if there was a chance to be prescribed two different stimulent type medications?
I have a friend in Seattle that is prescribed 160mg of Ritalin a day. She said the doctor prescribes it "off lable"... Is that possible? If so, how would I go about discussing this with my doctor?
