I’m so sorry this is happening to you!! I actually sent the links that are posted above to my husband’s doctor. His doctor said that he “must have been misinformed” about Ritalin being methylphenidate. We have had this happen every year because there seems to be a new set of nurses, etc. It’s a pain, but you have facts on your side. Ritalin is methylphenidate and Adderall is an amphetamine.
