Benefits of Ritalin

If you are an adult with narcolepsy (a sleep disorder involving falling asleep uncontrollably), you may benefit from Ritalin® (methylphenidate hydrochloride). This medication acts as a stimulant, making it easier for people to stay awake during the day.
 
Besides treating narcolepsy, Ritalin is also approved as a treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children age six and older. The medication helps improve the common symptoms of ADHD, such as hyperactivity (having trouble sitting still), problems paying attention, and problems focusing.
