Synopsis

This documentary, part of the Investigative Reports series from A&E, looks at the phenomenon caused by Ritalin, and the short and long-term effects it might have on America's children. Narrated by Investigative Reports host and producer Bill Kurtis, the video explores this Attention Deficit Disorder drug in close detail. Ritalin became the national wonder pill in the late '80s and into the '90s. Since 1990, Ritalin usage has increased more than 700 percent. This video shows interviews with doctors who continue to write prescriptions for hyperactive and behavioral problem children every day, without knowing the true long-term effects of the drug. There are also interviews with parents. ~ Cecilia Cygnar, Rovi
