Hello. : Hello. Sounds like a lot of tension between parents. Normally, a physician will not prescribe Ritalin (methylphenidate) for the sole purpose of making a child more docile. There has to be actual medical indication. There are a number of differrent medications which can be used to treat a child. I would anticipate that your son likely has attention deficit disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder if he is being treated with ritalin (methylphenidate). I suggest that you share your observations with your wife. Recommend it be done in a neutral and non- accusatory manner. You can share your concerns about possible side effects with her. It will be received better if your wife perceives you as bringing it up due to concern about your son, rather than bringing it up in the context of not parenting appropriately. Good luck. ...Read more
