What is Ritalin 20 mg and how is it used?
Ritalin 20 mg is a prescription medicine used to treat the symptoms of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Ritalin 20 mg may be used alone or with other medications. Ritalin 20 mg belongs to a class of drugs called Stimulants, and ADHD Agents. It is not known if Ritalin is safe and effective in children younger than 6 years of age.
Short-acting Ritalin 20 mg is sometimes abused by people who crush and snort it or simply take Ritalin that they haven't been prescribed. They may believe it will help them study better or perform better at school. Ritalin 20 mg is a controlled substance, but despite persistent myths, that does not mean that is a narcotic. It is controlled because it can potentially be abused (if taken by people without a prescription or medical need).
