    I was forced to take Ritalin as a kid and because of that I now find my elf always unconsciously grinding or clicking my teeth. I am almost 27 now, pursuing my master's degree and I KNOW this is a result of the amphetamines which I now avidly avoid. These drugs are NOT good for kids!

    It's really cool that the DSM board is captured by pharmaceutical companies. worthless humans.. who chose money over the livelihoods of millions of children.

    PLEASE stop these drug companies from medicating our children who only care about the money they are making. It is only putting a Band-Aid on a symptom and not getting to the root of the problem.

    It sure is easy to label the symptoms of a child's behavior as ADHD related and write a prescription to "calm" (quieten) the child. But when your child is old enough to talk, and confides in you that he (she) has been abused (for years) and is scared and you're the only one they trust, there's this feeling of helplessness. Furthermore, through research, you find that the behavioral symptoms are almost identical for ADHD and Child Abuse/Neglect, it's extremely hard to convince certain people to revisit the child's history and see what is plain as day to a parent (well, at least one parent). My child's entire future has been affected due to bad choices and cover-ups made by the people he is supposed to trust. I'll keep on fighting the good fight. And I'll ask for mercy on them, because their deeds will not go unpunished. Every man (or woman) reaps what he sows.

    It's alarming how many parents including myself are being told their child has ADD/ADHD. I refuse to accept this and these medications are dangerous.

    Pumping kids full of pharmaceuticals instead of teaching them manners and values isn't just harmful now, but it sets them up to believe that that the answer comes in the form of substance instead action and work. Its a shame.
