They are both amphetamine like stimulants and can cause addiction,weight loss,heart conditions,tics,mood disorders,stunted growth,liver and kidney damage and even sudden death. Long term use can cause irreversable damage and I do not think they are a suitable drug for young children. Amphetamines are also called SPEED, WHIZZ or BILLY. THey are similar to cocaine. Ritalin was the first ADHD drug of this sort then many more followed as pharmaceuticals cashed in on ADHD putting more children at risk. LOok at www.ritalindeath.com
