Every person who is on Ritalin should have their dosage assessed every six months. This is especially true for children as their dosage often needs to be adjusted as their weight increases or decreases; puberty can also change the way the medication works as the bodies hormones are changing. I strongly suggest going back to the paediatrician with your concerns; it may be time for a change in the dosage or even a change of medication.
