Ritalin Patch May Help with Side Effects and Stigmas

A West Virginia T.V. station recently told the story of a young boy who, diagnosed with ADHD, has begun taking his medication via a skin patch that he wears under his clothes.
"Doctor Feifel says it may be the same chemical [as Ritalin] but the patch seems to have a big advantage over pill... 'Some of the side effects that we think about with Ritalin are due, or at least contributed to, by the fact that it's a roller-coaster effect.'"
The patch provides a more steady, even dose of the medicine, and eliminates the need for trips to the nurse's office for kids to take their medication. Read more at WCHSTV.com.
