    YES.

    You can find facts about Ritalin in this booklet which is available on-line.

    It is the fifth booklet from left

    http://www.drugfreeworld.org/#/publications/drugs/...

    Quote:

    "Even when Ritalin is used as prescription drug, it may have severe side effects including nervousness, insomnia, anorexia (eating disorder), pulse changes, heart problems and weight loss. The manufacturer says it is a drug of dependency.

    In June 2005, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a series of public health advisories warning that Ritalin and drugs like it may cause visual hallucinations, suicidal thoughts, psychotic behavior, as well aggression and violence behavior."
