The doctor put him on Ritilan last week,he started at 5mg. I have seen no improvement at all, the doctor upped the doseage today to 10mg. I am terrified of the effects it will have on his heart and I afraid I will lose him to a heart arrythmia. Are there any other parents with small children that take this medication?
My sone was 7 when he started Concerta which is the same drug as Ritalin it is just a long acting form (methylphenidate). It was a Godsend. I wish I had put him on it sooner-he should have been on it as early as your son. Your child should have a good physical by his pediatrician before they put him on this medicine though.
