Why do you suggest Ritalin should be used more with CFS and less with ADHD?


Because ADHD sometimes is not the problem with a child but rather that the child learns differently, and or simply needs to have the diet improved. In CFS/fibromyalgia, autonomic dysfunction is very common and the Ritalin helps the body to compensate for this.
