My oldest son was on Ritalin when he was 8. A few month's after starting the drug he suddenly convulsed - Drs. were baffled and could not find out what caused it. We took him off the drug immediately and 13 years later he has never convulsed again. He says he gets the same reaction from a strong cup of coffee as from the Ritalin. My other son also was on Ritalin and after about 2 weeks his hands started shaking. We lowered the dose, but it persisted. We eventually stopped the drug and everything went back to normal. Yes, at times he is a handful but I rather cope with that than a child whose hands shake and he cannot even carry a drink.
