A Ritalin addict can take as many as 10-20 pills a day, far more than any doctor would prescribe. Tolerance to this drug builds up very quickly and can lead to addiction before the abuser even realizes they have a problem. Ritalin abuse requires targeted withdrawal management to help patients manage their symptoms, some of which include: Cold sweats, insomnia, nausea and vomiting, paranoia, restless leg syndrome, diarrhea or constipation, runny nose, trouble speaking, and more. Ritalin detox and withdrawal management should be supervised by an experienced and qualified medical professional for maximum safety. If you or a loved one are experiencing these or any other symptoms related to your Ritalin use, talk to your prescribing physician or seek treatment immediately.
It’s not uncommon for Ritalin users to start using their supply in a manner inconsistent with their physicians’ guidelines, whether it’s to experiment recreationally or experience the same effects as they did when they first started using the drug. It’s also not uncommon for Ritalin to be diverted and sold on the street to recreational users. The regulated legality of Ritalin leads many to believe that it is somehow safer or more benign than other illicit drugs; however, this medication can cause serious risks to one’s physical health, emotional health and quality of life if abused or misused; this is why it’s important that patients monitor their intake with their physician while they’re under prescription.
Ritalin withdrawal may need to be treated through medical detox followed by behavioral rehabilitation. The symptoms long-term Ritalin abusers experience during the withdrawal process often mandates experienced and qualified medical help from addiction-trained doctors and nurses. Recovery Unplugged offers medical detox to help you or your loved one through Ritalin withdrawal. After acute detox, lingering withdrawal symptoms may require ongoing care, depending upon how severe they are.
