Symptoms of Ritalin Addiction

Symptoms of Ritalin Addiction

What can start out as innocently using Ritalin can turn into abuse and ultimately turn into a full blown dependence on the drug. While some users who have been prescribed the drug may become addicted over time, those who recreationally use the drug have a higher susceptibility for developing an addiction, especially since they are not using the drug for medical purposes. Although Ritalin is a milder stimulant drug than others such as cocaine, it can still be habit forming. It can often be difficult to identify a Ritalin abuse problem, especially in those who have been prescribed the drug. If you suspect that you or a loved one may be misusing Ritalin to the point of abuse or addiction, it is important to seek treatment, as leaving a substance abuse problem can cause serious health complications, even death.
