When initially diagnosed 19 yrs ago at age 35, I tried Ritalin IR twice a day. However, I needed to take it at the same time every day. Well, as a high school teacher on a rotating daily schedule, that was impossible. I couldn’t leave class to go take meds, and I would forget to take them. After about 6 months and in consultation with my psychiatrist, I was put on Concerta 54mg – I’ve been on it ever since. My days can get pretty long (esp during exam period and nightly correcting/lesson planning) as well, and I seem to be able to manage. Good luck – I hope this insight helps…
