Foundation for a Drug-Free World has published a booklet “The Truth About Ritalin Abuse The aduse of prescription stimulants; Destroying young lives”. Ritalin or methylphenidate also called:

is classified by the Drug Enforcement Administration as a Schedule II narcotic, like cocaine, morphine, and amphetamines. As a prescription side effects may include:

  • nervousness,
  • insomnia,
  • anorexia (eating disorder),
  • pulse changes, heart problems, and

Some children have died, children on stimulant medications have twice the future rate of drug abuse, and one third of all children on these medications develop symptoms of obsessive complusive behavior within the first year. Ritalin abuse is seen in high schools and college for its stimulant effects. Some are even chopping up the Ritalin and snorting it like cocaine for faster absorption. Ritalin is also water soluble,

making it to convert into a liquid which can be injected.

A 2000 Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) report revealed:

…on both animals and humans who were given cocaine and Ritalin. The test subjects could not tell the difference. The DEA concluded that, ‘They produce effects that are nearly identical’ (Foundation for a Drug-Free World, 2008).
