If your daughter is shaky and had the anxiety attack, I would recommend calling the doctor that prescribed it and detailing what happened – better yet let your daughter explain the symptoms exactly as she remembers. It’s possible that either the other delivery system is needed, another BRAND (generic Ritalin vs. actual Ritalin) or something similar that isn’t Ritalin would do her better with NO side effects. Being shaky like that is something I would be cautious of. Please do call the doctor.
