I was just wondering if anyone has ever heard of the effects of prolonged use of Ritalin. I read in our newspaper the other day of a 14 yr. old boy that fell off a skateboard and died. When an autopsy was done,they said it the prolonged use of ritalin since he was 4 yrs.old had caused the arteries to the heart to harden.
My 7 yr.old has been on 10mg.3x a day for 2 years,and I would like any info on herbal alternatives. I do not like the side effects of Ritalin,even tho it does seems to help. Anyone with info out there?
