Ritalin (generic name methylphenidate) is a central nervous system stimulant that is frequently prescribed to treat Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD), Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), and various other sleep and behavioral disorders. Although Ritalin is legal when prescribed by a physician, it has a high potential for chemical dependency and is frequently abused recreationally for its stimulating effects.
