TESTIMONY CONTINUES IN RITALIN SUIT

Teen, Now In Prison, Alleges Drug Led To Cocaine Habit

A Jefferson County teenager serving a manslaughter sentence blames his
cocaine addiction on Ritalin and is suing the physician who prescribed the
medication.

The lawsuit being heard in Fayette in Jefferson County Circuit Court claims
Dr. Brian Stretch was negligent in treating Roderick Frye with Ritalin and
not explaining how he should be withdrawn from the prescription drug used
to treat Attention-Deficit Disorder.

Jim Shannon, attorney for Frye and his mother, Brenda Doss, says Ritalin is
addictive and a child is supposed to be gradually weaned from the drug. He
said the boy's mother took him off cold turkey, causing his addiction to
crack cocaine.
