both mentally and physically..
can make children pyschotic..
can cause heart problems in children..and later in life..
side effects from taking it are..hallucinations, thoughts of suicide..aggression, and the afor-mentioned psychotic behaviour..
need more?..how about appetite suppression, headaches, abdominal pain and sleep disturbances..
children who use ritalin for a long time usually weigh less, and are also shorter than the norm..
and these toxic tablets are handed out like like lollies to keep kids sedated..this both sucks and blows..
btw. the effects listed above may sound familiar to you..yes, that’s right ..this is what speed/meth/p does to you..eh?
that’s because ritalin is speed..
so, we quite rightly demonise speed and it’s use for adults..yet are au fait with the nippers being wired to the gills..as they say..go figure..
(disclaimer: i have noted previously that as part of an experimental/misspent youth i used/tried ritalin in recreational mode..it is the most hideous of drugs..it puts you into a terrible, intense, space..and the kids being fed it are quiet allright..they are just trying to handle the constant fizzing and frying going on in their brains..)
