Ritalin For ADHD

ADHD is an acronym for Attention Deficit Hypersensitivity Disorder. Previously called hyperkinesis or minimal brain dysfunction, ADHD is a common behavioral disorder among children. An individual with ADHD tends to have a chronic level of impulsive hyperactivity, inattention, or both, to the extent that daily normal functioning is compromised. Other symptoms of attention deficit disorder include continual problems with moderate to severe distractibility, short attention span, emotional changeability, and impulsiveness.

How about using Ritalin for ADHD?
Ritalin and other brands of methylphenidate (e.g. Concerta and Metadate) are mild central nervous system stimulants that are commonly used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children. When prescribed by a doctor for the treatment of attention deficit disorder, the doctor should also ensure that Ritalin is not the only treatment, but is an integral part of a total treatment program that includes educational, psychological, and social measures. This should help to ensure that the patient's course of treatment is successful.

Who should not use Ritalin for ADHD?
Ritalin should not be prescribed for anyone experiencing tension, anxiety, and agitation, since the drug may actually aggravate these symptoms. Ritalin should not be taken by anyone with glaucoma (an eye condition), anyone who suffers from tics (repeated, involuntary twitches), or anyone with a family history of Tourette's syndrome (severe and multiple tics).

Before you buy Ritalin - It is important to note that Ritalin should not be used for the prevention or treatment of normal fatigue, nor should it be used for the treatment of severe depression.

Some possible Ritalin side effects:
More common - inability to fall or stay asleep, nervousness
Less common - abdominal pain, abnormal heartbeat, hives, jerking, joint pain, loss of appetite, abnormal muscular movements, rapid heartbeat, reddish or purplish skin spots, blood pressure changes, chest pain, dizziness, drowsiness, fever, hair loss, headache, nausea, palpitations (fluttery or throbbing heartbeat), pulse changes, skin reddening, skin inflammation with peeling, skin rash, Tourette's syndrome (severe twitching), weight loss during long-term treatment.
Side effects can never be anticipated but if any seem unusual or especially bothersome, see a doctor immediately.
