What are the side effects ritalin (methylphenidate) abuse and withdrawals ?

Side Effects: Ritalin (methylphenidate) is a good drug, but it does have significant side effects. It can cause high heart rate, appetite suppression, and even psychological side effects (hallucinations, etc) in some patients. It does have addictive/abusive potential. So, it does a good job when used correctly, but you just have to keep in close follow up with your doctor. You can be quite sleepy if you abruptly stop ritalin (methylphenidate). ...Read more

If I abused ritalin/methylphenidate and was given a urine test will the levels show that I abused it or will it just show up as a positive so I'll be ?

A routine SAMHSA-5: urine test does not screen for methylphenidate. If a specific screen for mph is used, it depends on the duration of action of the formulation you took & how rapidly you metabolize & excrete it. I hope that you heard yourself say that you're abusing prescription medications. Next step is to recognize that you need to seek treatment for both your addiction & any comorbid psychiatric disorder(s). ...Read more

If I abused ritalin (methylphenidate) the night before I was given a urine test will it show high levels of ritalin (methylphenidate) in my system or just a positive for ritalin (methylphenidate)?

Yes, but I don't : know if it's sold in your country. A stimulant overdose can cause your blood pressure & pulse to increase & may cause a heart attack, stroke &/or death. Tell your psychiatrist & ask for a non- stimulant medication: Strattera, (atomoxetine) Intuniv or Kapvay. They take a few weeks to work, but are not addictive. I don't keep chocolate at home , because I'd eat it all in 1-2 days. Avoid temptation & stay safe. ...Read more
