6 doctors agree

In brief: Talk to doctor

Am not aware of any studies that conclude Ritalin (methylphenidate) decreases milk production.
More concerned you're breast-feeding while taking Ritalin (methylphenidate) which gets into breast milk. Please discuss with pediatrician and consider bottle-feeding if you need this med. Best wishes.
