August 24, 2001 - Ritalin Use is On the Rise

August 24, 2001 - Ritalin Use is On the Rise

According to the American Medical Association, the rapid rise in Ritalin prescriptions for children is "disturbing" since last year alone doctors might have written almost 20 million monthly prescriptions for the drug.

Ritalin is used to treat children who have trouble focusing in school or who are hyperactive. The drug should only be prescribed after careful evaluation and only to those who truly need them. Doctors must become more thorough, more informed and more cautious. They are the gatekeepers, the only parties with the power to prescribe.
