While I agree that psychiatic drugs (especially those for ADD/ADHD) are overprescribed, it is incredibly ignorant to use this as a basis to claim that
the conditions simply don't exist. Though they are the minority of children on such drugs, there truly are children with ADD/ADHD. These can be
socially and educationally crippling disorders when left untreated.
Using the logic you employed above, would you claim that staph infections don't exist due to antibiotics being overprescribed? What about urinary
tract infections? Those are often treated prophylactically.
To see this sort of poor logic coming from a moderator is a bit troubling, to say the least.
