  UM study: Ritalin use may worsen cocaine abuse

  People who use cocaine regularly may have a harder time breaking the habit

in 1985 to 1.0 million in 1990, to 6 million today--with no evidence that it

  The study, conducted on laboratory mice, found that rodents given Ritalin
  and Ecstasy, then later cocaine, showed higher sensitivity to cocaine than
  those that hadn't been exposed to the first two stimulants.
  "If they start using drugs, these guys that have been preexposed to Ritalin
  and Ecstasy may be more susceptible for relapse than others," said Yossef
  Itzhak, a UM professor of psychiatry and the lead researcher on the study.
