This book is designed to be a key reference and guide for professionals involved in research or in the clinical use and management of Ritalin (methylphenidate). It is predicated on the idea that the drug merits different approaches because of its multiplicity of roles: as treatment modality for hyperactivity and other behavior disorders of childhood, residual attentional deficits disorders in adults (ADHD-Residual State), AIDS-related problems, head injuries, narcolepsy, and adult schizophrenia. Although research studies and clinical practice have clearly documented the efficacy of methylphenidate treatment and dispelled myths and misconceptions about the drug, there has not been a single volume to date on the subject of Ritalin. This text will fill that gap and provide a comprehensive resource for those interested in reviewing current theories and clinical work.
