At a time when even the most benign medications are showing long term complications, ADHD meds deserve a closer look. I work in an underprivileged area. I’ve observed a cycle: higher rates of teen births, followed by anti anxiety meds for the parents, and ADHD meds for the offspring. Crushing the kids’ spirit because they don’t fit into the traditional school settings will lead to anxiety about being themselves and sharing their gifts with the world.
With new studies piling up warning of risks of stimulants on kids, are the risks of ADHD meds worth the benefits?
