Part Descriptions

LP16202-1   Methylphenidate
Methylphenidate (brand name Ritalin) is a central nervous system (CNS) stimulant used in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). It is also used to treat depression, narcolepsy, brain injury, cancer, pain, cognitive disorders and to treat patients with human immunodeficiency virus infection. Methylphenidate can be admistered orally, intravenously or intranasally. This medication can be habit forming and has potential for abuse. Intranasal abuse can mimic the effects cocaine in both onset and type as it provides a rapid release of synaptic dopamine that causes an instant feeling of euphoria. Side effects can include insomnia, stomach ache, headache, and anorexia. [PMID:15014637] Source: Regenstrief LOINC

Change Reason
The Property has been changed from ACnc to reflect the new model for ordinal terms where results are based on a cut-off value.; The PrThr property is used for LOINC terms whose results are reported using an ordered categorical scale, regardless of whether or not an internal threshold was used to make that determination. This change was approved by the Laboratory LOINC Committee in June 2016.
