missionaries from North America are supposably on Ritalyn. Has anyone 
else heard this?

It seems more likely that this report is conflated with other legitimate 
concerns.  It is widely reported that Ritalin is popular for 
prescription drug abuse on college campuses.

I would need to see more substantive information sources to think that 
Ritalin would be so widely prescribed for young missionaries.  And based 
on my own observation, I seriously doubt that illegal drug use is a 
widespread problem among Church missionaries.
