Ritalin Effects


Recommended Posts

Hey, i was given Ritalin when i was 4 yrs old, and stoped about 4-6 years afterwards, does anyone know what this can do to someone around that age?

For instance, i checked on the internet for some information, and i found out that in rats, they gave them Ritalin when they were just babies, and now, when they got old. They figured out that Ritalin decreases the chance of new brain cells forming and decreases the chance of them actually living. From what i have heard, is that Ritalin actually makes alot of ppl with ADHD slower than what they will be like when they are older. might explain why im slow lots of times.

Any more information would be greatly apreciated
