We are considering Ritalin for my DC, however have read negative as well as positives. Can anyone give any advice or their child experiences whilst in this. We are considering a very low dosage first and increasing it gradually.

not my own child, but I taught two brothers who had ADHD and the difference when they took Ritalin was amazing.

The 8 year old came in to school in a new term after starting ritalin in the holidays and drew a picture of himself with huge eyes because he "could now look and listen and start to learn". He was like a different child and could concentrate much better. The children still need to have a good routine and behaviour management programme and there needs to be good liaison and feedback between medical and school staff, but used correctly , for the right children, it can be very effective.
