Methylphenidate has been used for years to treat ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder), preferably in children but increasingly also in adults. The drug requires strict indication and control when used. Since an increase in mental performance, concentration and alertness can be demonstrated, especially in adults, Ritalin was used in 3 patients aged 84, 87, 90 years with dementia symptoms and showed a very good effect. Use in this indication should be examined.
