Miriam Stoppard writes an opinion piece on the lack of good research on Ritalin, a drug often used for ADHD, and discusses the latest Cochrane review which found a high percentage of side-effects in children. Despite the lack of quality evidence, “NHS figures show that nearly one million ADHD prescriptions were handed out last year in England – a number that has more than doubled in 10 years.”
Ritalin feels just like cocaine especially the crash part when it wears off, its not as abrupt but its the same thing.
I always say parents should take an adult size dose of the stuff before giving it to the kids , its impossible to really understand how it works what its doing by just observing the child from the outside.
One of my first thoughts when I tried ADHD drugs as an adult was OMG they give this stuff to kids !
