This message board is so helpful - I am new here as of today and the wealth of knowledge I have gained has been incredible.

I have an Autistic, ADD, Brain Damaged (result of medical negligence) child who has been on Ritalin now for about four months. I was at loathe to put him on it, but the specialist felt if we could make him concentrate a bit better perhaps the other two conditions he suffers from might not be quite so bad.

We got his dose up to 4 tablets a day of 10mgs each. All was good, in fact fabulous - the teachers all commented on the marked improvement they had seen in him. They knew when he was on it, and when he had missed a pill. We were happy up until about a month ago when he started to get very moody. Then he lost a lot of weight. Now he has severe chilblains on his little toes. I am wondering if the Ritalin is responsible for all this, perhaps upsetting his circulation thus the chilblains. As for the moodiness another post mentions this.

Any thoughts anyone?

Thanks heaps,
