Can I Get Addicted to Ritalin? Learn the Facts

When Ritalin and related drugs like Adderall came onto the market, they were touted as a miracle cure: they would help kids learn, help prevent unruly kids from distracting the whole class, help parents and teachers cope.  Diagnosis rates of attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactive disorder (ADHD) skyrocketed as more and more children were prescribed Ritalin.  But it wasn’t long before adults and older kids discovered that Ritalin has a strong effect on them, too.  College students began using it to keep them sharp during all-night study sessions.  Overworked parents began using it to keep them going. But, like most stimulant drugs, Ritalin is addictive—a fact most users did not know.
