I recently came a across a great article from the New York Times about how the pharmaceutical industry relates to ADHD. It’s interesting to note how financial interests and good science intersect – in a blurry line. Quite a blurry line. I’d say 20/400 blurry (i.e. severe visual impairment). The article is well written, so rather than spend hours writing my own article on the subject, check this one out. Please note how many experts, who we ought to be able to trust, receive drug company money for giving lectures that promote these medications.
Some people DO absolutely benefit from these drugs and I prescribe these to a few people (emphasis on few) as it absolutely benefits their life positively. So please understand that I am not against these drugs being made and given to people. I AM AGAINST as many people using them as do currently and I think it’s indisputable that the pharmaceutical industry is taking advantage of people. Of course, I also think it’s we the people’s (including doctors) fault for allowing that to happen.
Solution: Consider yourself in a broad context, and address lifestyle first!
