its actually methylphenidate, not methylphenidat. methlyphenidate is the active ingredient in ritalin and concerta.

tenex and clonidine are two other drugs that are often used for adhd.

now, i'm not sure why this thread is necessary. were many people having spelling difficulties?

Very good.. but it is also prescribed as a generic drug...

Yes but it isn't nearly as common.. especially with college students.

And yes indeed.. apparently many people can't spell adderall or ritalin specifically.
