Thread Name: ADHD- Ritalin
Subject: RE: ADHD- Ritalin
Maybe the pros do not provide enough medical evidence to the people who have to face going on Ritalin.

Why do they constantly measure the persons height - they say becuase the drug can impair growth in younsters.
Why do they do occasional blood tests - they say becuase it can affect soemthing in their blood.
Why can't they sleep at night - this causes diabolicle issues for the rest of the family - put them on an extra drug to help them sleep.

These are the sort of things that we see as families affected by ADHD.

Why did we have to go to the hospital 10 miles away to get the Ritalin, because the chemists wern't allowed to provide them. - Something to do with the classification of the drug. Scary.
