    This is not true for ADD. Medication can be stopped at any time and there are NO side effects.....IF and ONLY IF the person truly has the ADD disorder.

    I respectfully disagree. It's well documented that suddenly stopping Adderall can trigger extreme fatigue and/or depression.

    Here's just one example of many Adderall

    That surely may be the case for ADD, however prefer to error on extreme caution.

    Not if it is used for a correctly diagnosed ADD condition. The chemistry doesn't support it. However, it is often prescribed for those who aren't ADD at all. THAT'S where the problems crop up. The brain chemistry is completely different.

    BUT I'll do more research on Adderall specifically. There are NO problems with stopping Ritalin. I know that for a living fact.

    Good point, and am pretty sure you wouldn't want for someone newly or incorrectly "diagnosed" to take the risk of abruptly stopping.

    You are correct about Ritalin as well. People who have taken the medication for a long time, or take it in high doses, should not stop it immediately, as it can cause sudden and severe depression and withdrawal.

    Stopping Adderall for any length of time is an utter BITCH!! I'm living proof!! If you can manage your ADHD or ADD symptoms without it then do so!! Keep away from at all costs!! Totally wicked withdrawals.

    My favorite quote from that article as I recall was "Cake makes my tummy hurt." When describing the children's expressed preference for fresh fruit over other treats when being interviewed.

    Thanks for sharing the case study, information like that is very helpful to even big kids like me.
    I absolutely remember reading this article! Might'a been on CNN.com 'cause I feel like it was during my news-checking phase at work....

They also experimented with environmental ambiance, dabbling with how light, color, and sound impact the behaviors of the student body. That too yielded positive results, which makes sense. Marketing researchers spend quite a bit of time studying how musical tempo impacts buying behavior, and how lighting and colors make us act and feel certain ways.

    Nonsense. More quackery.
