Ritalin, also known as methylphenidate, Focalin, or Concerta, is a medication approved by the FDA and is used to treat ADD, ADHD and narcolepsy. Its mechanism of action involves inhibiting the reuptake of the neurotransmitter dopamine, leading to increased amounts of dopamine between synapses, thus improving focus, motivation, alertness, and energy. From a nootropic perspective, taking this substance increases efficiency of cortical networks and memory functions.
