      i agree there are people who need medication and people who abuse it, as with everything else. just a word of caution.

      a more neutral message. It doesn’t lead to abuse in people who need the meds – only with people who don’t need them.

      The meds affect mostADHD people by slowing them down or making them tired, instead of hyping them up (add are also labeled adhd – just inattentive type (instead of passive)).

      with most (not all) adhd kids, a super dose of caffeine makes them very tired, instead of bouncing off the walls.

      Somehow the stimulants slow down the relay of info to the brain on adhd people.

      BTW – if you do decide to medicate (or not) any med or natural treatment is not a ‘magic pill’, it does need to be in conjunction with behavior modification (1-2-3- magic is a great book for younger kids on that and Love & Logic for the older kids (teens & tweens))

      Modern medicine has helped my brother with his ADD, but it isn’t the answer for everyone, in fact, it has led to abuse with some people.

      Medicine is still a “practice” because doctors are still practicing. There’s a lot of information out there.
