I am sure you have had a bruise on your body in the past, a black or blue mark that fades to green or yellow before fading altogether. Abnormal bruising is just that, abnormal, bruises that do not behave like normal bruises: black or blue marks that follow veins (infection), bruises so painful that movement is hindered, bruises that have something solid in them, bruises that get larger, bruises of non-bruise colors (red, white), etc.

Does Ritalin cause bruising?

Not likely. Bruising can be caused by abnormal clotting factors. PT and PTT can be measured and if they are nl then the bruising is probably not related to the Ritalin. It would be highly unlikely for Ritalin to affect the PT or PTT. Actually, Ritalin does cause bruising. This is a rare but serious side effect and you should stop taking the drug immediately and contact your doctor. The PT and PTT may show up normal but once the Ritalin is discontinued, the bruising typically stops.

It is more of a sterile procedure under local aneasthesia rather than a surgery as such.The placement of the stent is acheived by the catheter which is usually inserted either radially(from the arm) or femorally (from the groin). The catheter on the skin leaves only a small mark.It leaves some bruising marks on the arm because of the angle, the arm is kept for manouvering the catheter.
