In Reply to: Any horror stories about Ritalin use anyone ??? posted by Dave on October 04, 2000 at 00:41:28:
there's a ton of info on the net about the adverse side effects of ritalin. go to about.com and type in "ritalin alternatives" or to hotbot.com and type "ritalin survivors" for case histories.
: I am currently pursuing "medical actions" if you will, concerning my 7 year old daughter, and her mothers jumping around from doctor to doctor to try and find one that will go along with her "beliefs" as to what is wrong with my daughter.
: As you can tell ... this is a very vague description as to what is going on in my daughters life .. and I do believe the "mother" is somewhat scared now. Child Protective Services have questioned her, and some of her motives .. and she is again switching doctors.
: Now for my question. I am sure I will get a ton .. but I shall filter out the ones that may not apply to my situation, and go from there. Let me know your "horror stories" if you have any concerning the drug Ritalin.
: Please .. no preaching .... no judging ... and no jumping to conclusions as to what is going on. Those issues are left up to the judge .. which we have a pretty good case .. but I would like for my own knowledge some feedback.
