Ritalin is Good Ritalin is Easy Four years ago I was diagnosed with ADD or Attention DeficitHyperactivity Disorder In other words I had a chronic problem paying attention As a form of treatment for ADD I was put on a controversial drug called Ritalin Now being at the age of fourteen it was not really my choice whether I wanted to take a doctors prescription or not Now that I have grown up a bit and understand things better I am questioning the benefits of prescribing Ritalin to treat ADD My personal experience with Ritalin is mixed I use it when I am in school and at work and it allows me to concentrate and focus on what I need to do I use to be a troubled student Things never came easy to me and far too often they never came at all Ritalin was like putting on a pair of glasses Suddenly everything became focused and organized My schoolwork went for a category I will refer to as mediocre to a straight A student I was no longer battling with myself to comprehend something People who knew me as a child would never believe me as to what I have accomplished That came at a price though when I am taking Ritalin I drop about fifteen pounds and have constant nausea I also feel it changes my personality making me a very bland person to talk to Last year I found myself in the hospital with what can be described as a heart attack because of Ritalin Most of these side effects I have been able to coupe with because the benefits have been so high I do question if I could have gotten this far without it and if it was really worth it I never really took the time to learn about ADD or Ritalin Similar to a majority of people with ADD I was diagnosed as a child So
