Methylphenidate often Referred by Ritalin

This type of drug is often referred to by the brand name Ritalin. Ritalin is a type of drug that stimulates the brain mentally but also suppresses other areas of the brain so the ADHD patient is more calm and able to focus. When taken properly, the drug can be safe and effective. It can become a very addictive and sought after prescription drug by those who are already addicted to stimulant drugs or those who try it for the first time.

Teenagers who are addicted to the drug often crush the pill and snort the Ritalin because it is believed to give an instant high.
