Ritalin if used according to the correct dose will not harm your child. However there must be a sound and definite reasion for using this medicine. It is a little unusual for a girl to be diagnosed as having an ADD or ADHD problem as this occurs most often with boys and Ritalin is usually prescribed for these conditions. This is not to say that girls don't ever have ADD and ADHd problems, but it is unusual.I would prefer your daughter to be seen by a paediatric neurologist before allowing her to start on Ritalin.
