Kiddie Cocaine - Ritalin rattles drug abuse

Methylphenidate is commonly known as Ritalin, Concerta or Tranquilyn.

It is a central nervous system stimulant that is used by adults and children who have been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

It has also been used to treat narcolepsy, mild depression, and when combined with other pharmaceutical drugs has been used in the treatment of chronic pain.

Are you feeling yourself without your meds?

Prescription drug abuse can be defined as taking medication differently to how you were instructed in order to feel the pleasurable effects or a “high” or to avoid the unpleasant side-effects of not taking the drug.

For example this could be taking your prescribed Ambien three or four times a day instead of the prescribed frequency and duration.

It’s important to be conscious of the long-term effects that continued prescription medication abuse can have on your body and overall quality of life.
