I have been on Ritalin for 20 years for Adult ADD. Can Ritalin cause Brain damage? I also have numerous other problems but I cant get on with my life because i am scared of something going horribly wrong.
Dr Nora Volkow of the National Institute of Drug Abuse said her brain scans show it damages the frontal lobe. You may want to try a non-stimulant drug like straterra.
