Ritalin & Other Drugs

Discontinuing Any Drugs

It's never a good idea to just stop taking any drug that the body has become adjusted to.  This includes Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Strattera,and all other similar drugs.  One way to do this is to cut the dosage in half for a week, then in half again for another week, and then cut it out. Watch for any withdrawal symptoms (flu type symptoms are most common).


Some children, of course, have problems so severe that drugs like Ritalin,Adderall, Concerta, and Strattera, have been a godsend for those mid and low income families that simply cannot afford EEG biofeedback training.   Up to now, those families have been literally "forced" to put their children on Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, and others.   There is no such thing as a drug of any kind without side effects, and all these drugs are addictive at best!!

But that has little to do with the most obvious reason millions of American children are taking Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, and Strattera, compliance.  One day at a time, the drug continues to make children do what their parents and teachers either will not or cannot get them to do without it: Sit down, shut up, keep still, pay attention.  In short, Ritalin is a cure for childhood." -- Mary Eberstadt (Reading, Writing, and Ritalin) Did you know that schools actually get paid by Big Pharma for using Ritalin and others on kids?

The following articles are only the tip of the iceberg.   Using "Ritalin" as a search word turned up over 50,000 references.   Most of these cite known dangers.   Every parent who has an ADD/ADHD child, and is considering the use of Ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, Strattera, or other drugs, should read all this information FIRST!
