    No. but they should stop as quickly as possible. Misdiagnosis is misdiagnosis. All the drama queen NFs focus on are mis-diagnosed cases...and assume that means that ADD does not exist. That's even more dangerous. The Sarah Palin's of medicine. Ignore reality. Cling to faulty intuition regardless of the facts.

    After doing some googling it does seem that Adderall can be a nasty dug. It is a different type of drug than Ritalin.

    I don't know why folks put up with things like elevated blood pressure, loss of appetite etc. To me those are all signs that something is still out of whack. Obviously, there are lots of mis-diagoses.

    As I said earlier I have been taking 80 mg of Ritalin a day for 15 years..and have had no negative side effects at all. And i have lovely low blood pressure. Can go off it at any time and no withdrawal problems at all.

    ADD is real. Ritalin works. Correct diagnosis is key.

    Not true for ADD folks...only true for those not having ADD. Big difference.

    Anyone diagnosed as having ADD or ADHD presumably has the illness and are treated as such. The warning is for all people taking the medication who have been diagnosed with ADD or ADHD. It is especially for those who take high doses or who have taken the medication for a long time, and for those who overuse their own meds because they have developed a tolerance to the medication over time.

    With no definitive psychological or medical marker for ADD or ADHD in the first place, how do you conclude whether or not a person has or hasn't been diagnosed "properly"?

    You're clueless. And you have never taken Ritalin. I have for 15 years. I know you NFs like to ignore reality for your grand schemes, but my 15 year reality trumps your googled knowledge base.

    You don't see the ADD trees for the pharmaceutical forest.

    Why am I unloading my frustration on stupid morons? It's like cruelty to animals. You don't kick a dog because it poops on your carpet. You lock it in the backyard.
