A short video I (Ryan Froehling) made for Jack Conway's Prescription Drug Abuse Prevention PSA Contest. I go to Villa Madonna Academy.
The side effects of excess Ritalin include:
convulsions (may be followed by coma)
Ritalin is just one of many prescription drugs teens use to get high. Like most drugs, your body will build up a tolerance to Ritalin over time, causing more and more to be needed to get the same feeling.
Ritalin and similar substances like Adderall cause long-term brain damage, and can even lead to death.
