The long term effects of Ritalin is not known and I would not want my child on it. I believe it causes depression and sometimes children who have taken this and other so called ADHD medicines have committed terrible crimes. I believe it has been given to keep the children in check for discipline because teachers can't keep order in other way in the classroom. My mother taught school for over 30 years and kept a quiet classroom without the children taken off-the-wall medicine. Kids have not changed - the adults around them have and not for the better.

I can recommend a reputable Indian pharmacy.
Before I ordered Strattera here I ran a thorough investigation on the manufacturing practices in India in general and found out that there is death penalty for counterfeiting drugs there. I figured it would be enough to give the Strattera pills a try and I was quite satisfied with the result.
Indian Strattera and Ritalin similar meds. This is ADHD medications. And the this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://indiantrustedpills.info I've just placed my 3rd order. I hope this info will be of any help to

I have tried a variety of medications for ADD; including Ritalin, Adderall, Adderall XR, Dexedrine, and Strattera. Each has benefits along with side effects. After several years medicating with central nervous system stimulants (CNS) I switched to Strattera from http://indiantrustedpills.info . I found the medication took a few weeks to take effect, and tended to cause constipation. I also found my psychological state was less effective if I became dehydrated. To counter the side effects I added All-Bran into my diet twice a week, and drank more liquids. The big benefit for myself was I could enjoy reading books again, which I could not on the CNS stimulants.

Indian Strattera from http://indiantrustedpill.info works great. I am able to focus and am able to do more tasks at once, which my job requires. I am now able to sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time and read, write, and study for my college classes. The only thing that bothers me is that I sometimes forget to take my dose of medication. Other than this instance, I am able to function better as a person!

Tracking was relatively good. When I say that I mean it gave you dates for purchase, processed, and shipped. Only downside was that it took 12 days when they said it would only take 3-5. The tablets did come all the way from India and ultimately took the normal amount of time from the shipping date.

And athletes on steroids hit better, lift more, pedal faster, jump higher, etc etc etc.

My six year old first grader was expected to write 5 sentence paragraphs in the second week of school.

No wonder the teacher says he has focus problems.

Here's some news that no one wants to hear anymore: Every kid has attention deficit issues. Know why? BECAUSE THEY ARE KIDS. Stop trying to be your kid's 'pal' and start being a parent. I bet in 90% of all cases, a swift kick to their posterior is all the behavior modification they need.

I agree. A bit of time and attention from parents would also be a cure.
