ADHD Home > Methylin Dosage
For children ages six and older who are first starting Methylin, the dosage typically starts at 5 mg twice a day. The recommended daily dosage for adults is 20 mg to 30 mg, taken in two or three doses. If needed, your healthcare provider may slowly increase your daily dose up to 60 mg. Taking your Methylin dosage before breakfast and lunch can decrease the risk of insomnia.
