Warnings and Precautions:

Sufficient data on the safety and efficacy of long-term use of Ritalin (Phenida) in children are not yet available. A causal relationship has not been established, but suppression of growth (i.e. weight gain, and/or height) has been reported with long-term use of stimulants in children. Thus, careful monitoring of those requiring long-term therapy is recommended.
Ritalin (Phenida) should not be used in children under six years of age, as there is no substantial data for the safety and efficacy in this age group. As well, Itshould not be used for severe depression of either exogenous or endogenous origin. Clinical information suggests administration of Itto psychotic children may exacerbate symptoms of behavior disturbance and thought disorder.
Ritalin (Phenida) should not be administered to prevent or treat normal fatigue states.

Commonly reported characteristics include all of the above as well as minor neurological signs and abnormal EEG. Learning may or may not be impaired as a result. The diagnosis must be based upon a complete history and evaluation of the child and not solely on the presence of one or more of these characteristics. Diagnosis of this syndrome should not be made with finality when the symptoms are only recent in origin.
