Sorry I have been on some of these meds and yeah they change your life by making you a zombie! I found more natural ways to deal with it and I am much happier. I dont think any of these medicines are safe and I know quite a few kids who are on them now and it isnt helping them, its making things worse. I wish doctors wouldnt rush to just shove pills down peoples throats.

Most people don't need these drugs. But when I was younger I had psychotic episodes where I got extremely paranoid. It actually happened in college, and I thought my room mate was spying on me through cameras implanted everywhere and I slept in my car for days and then my dad convinced me to go back to the dorm (I didn't tell him why I left) and I bought like 20 towels and put them everywhere. Anyway, my room mate actually thought I was insane through the whole time we were there together that he moved out into a dorm across the hall with his friends. I've also had times where I burst into tears, then laughed, burst into tears and laughed and then got irritated when people were staring at me.

Well finally I went to a psychiatrist when I thought about suicide at least 10 times a day, and he prescribed me risperdal and an maoi (parnate). Let's just say things calmed down dramatically for me.

My point is, yes these drugs shouldn't be handed out (because they can in fact damage your life more than help if you don't need them), but if your mind is really debilitating, then these drugs *can* help. I got off the risperdal and maoi though, since they are very hard and powerful drugs and all I need right now is wellbutrin and adderall (though I think I am going to not take adderall anymore).

Couple of things.

These medications when prescribed by an MD are legal.

Do they work? Yes, for many these medications do work and make a difference.

But: Before you place your child on them you need to see a specialist that treats ADHD ADD etc. You need a proper evaluation and non pharma methods should be exhausted before you go this route. No offence to General Pediatricians everywhere but they are NOT qualified to no should they be allowed to prescribe these meds unless the child has been evaluated by a qualifed MD.

LOL.



There is no conspiracy here, the doctors and everyone are VERY familiar with the addictive potential of the meds, thus why they all are DEA Schedule II drugs(which is the schedule right before ILLEGAL, which means they have the highest potential for abuse and withdrawal symptoms).


Yeah getting kids hooked on uppers at such a young age so they have to continue to take the drugs so the kids continue to take medication and the drug company gets more money everyday. Yeah, no conspiracy there.

ADHD and ADD are myths made up to sell the drugs. What are the symptoms of ADD and ADHD, look em up. You will see that everyone could be said to have ADD and ADHD

I wish I had these as a kid, might have been not labeled "the dumbest smart kid" in class.

Not kidding, I would prob. have my masters or something related in Finance. Now unfortunately, I sit with no margin lol - although I cant say it is all attributed to that of course, I do take self-responsibility first.

But it would have helped only 10000%

Im glad you do not experience things like this, but of course you are entitled to an opinion.

One more voice of reason against the misinformed, in Aussie Pediatricians are MD's first then specialize. You are correct in that medications do make a difference, but they are not the whole answer. Just a part of the solution.
