Is anyone familiar with the long term effects of Ritalin or Add.erall if you take them for years? I'm talking about people who really do have ADHD and need to be on these type of medications to function in life.
I'm reading a little on Ritalin and that it causes some areas of your brain to receive less oxygen and can cause holes in your brain. It depletes calcium from your bones and teeth. Seems like it could cause more problems in the long run... Just scary stuff. I'm still looking for the long term effects of Add.erall but it seems to be the lesser of the 2 evils. I'm also reading if you are truly ADHD even after the stimulant effects wear off and you become tolerant the focusing effects will still be there, you just may need to take the medications for life since the way they effect the brain after long term daily usage.
Anyone know more on the long term effects of these 2?
