Dose too strong?
I'm prescribed 30mg of Ritalin per day and when I'm eating the "typical" kind of diet (including dairy, which exacerbates my ADHD a lot) I need this dose (in fact, when my diet has been really poor, I've need a dose as high as 40mg).
However, I've been improving my eating habits a lot (cutting out dairy foods as much as food, taking vitamins etc) and I'm finding that 30mg is feeling uncomfortably strong. When I'm on the meds, I feel more anxious and very tense, and it kills my appetite even more than it used to. My anxiety/nervousness is getting pretty extreme, but I ONLY get it when I've been taking my medication.
Could this mean my dose is now too strong?
