: My son's doctor says he has Minimal Brain Dysfunction and is hyperactive. He wants to start him on Cylert. Wouldn't Ritalin be a better starting point?
Why do you feel Ritalin is a better starting point? Your doctor must feel that Cylert will work better for your son and he is the one who knows both your son and his diagnosis. Certain meds may work better for some than for others. If you have any real concerns at all then ask you doctor why he feels he wants to try the cylert. Only your doctor can anwser those questions since the doc is the one who is prescribing the meds.
