Raised on Ritalin

A Personal Story of ADHD, Medication and Modern Psychiatry

Graphic Novel - 2016
Rate this:
At age 8 in 1985, Tyler was among the first generation of kids diagnosed with ADD and prescribed Ritalin. He would go on to take it almost every day for 8 years until it seemed like he had outgrown his ADD. He didn't give it much thought until many years later when he started having trouble again, and more importantly, started a family. What happens if his kids have the same problems at school he did? Would he give them medication like his parents had given him? Would it help? Did it help him? 'Raised on Ritalin' uses Tyler's firsthand experience of growing up with ADD and being treated with Ritalin (including his own medical records) to look at the disorder and the world surrounding it from many angles (personal, historical, scientific).
