Were you looking for information about Ritalin? Ritallin is a common misspelling of Ritalin.
Ritalin® is a prescription medication licensed for the treatment of narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It works as a stimulant to help people with narcolepsy stay awake during the day, but also produces a calming effect to help children with ADHD. At the doses used for ADHD, this product does not cause hyperactivity; in fact, its effects are the opposite of what one would expect from a stimulant.
The drug, which comes in tablet form, is available in three different strengths. Potential side effects of Ritalin may include drowsiness, loss of appetite, nervousness, or nausea. Before taking this medicine, tell your healthcare provider if you are pregnant, thinking of becoming pregnant, or breastfeeding.
