Preschoolers Face Greater Risk of Side Effects from the drug Ritalin…

According to a 70 week study, which is published in the November issue of the Journal of the Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, preschoolers on the generic version of the drug Ritalin, also called methylphenidate, experienced side effects that include stunted growth, irritability, weight loss, insomnia, and other side effects.

Out of 165 children, more than a dozen preschoolers dropped out of the study due to the side effects. Although there were benefits for children who had severe ADHD, the researchers said preschoolers on Ritalin are more likely than older children to develop side effects.

“You have children who are very aggressive and doing things that are unsafe, like running into the middle of the road or jumping off high pieces of playground equipment,” said Dr. James McGough of UCLA, one of the study authors. “These are kids who, if they did not get treatment, would get kicked out of preschool.”


Folks, our children need proper nutrition to correct ADHD, not some psychotropic drug that carries side effects including stomachaches, headaches and even hallucinations. I urge you to read my column on ADHD to become aware of the major consequences of putting children on this harmful drug.
