Hi Med

>I really do think sometimes stims can help people...I mean, even if you cant prove the existence of ADHD, if you can give a kid low-dose dexedrine or something and then that helps them succeed in school and what not, then I say do it--occasionally

I agree Med.

>think in the US we have a situation where an EXTRAORDINARY number of kids are being labelled as "disordered" when their environments (school, home,etc) are really the problem

I think that's probably true in many cases.

Prescribing psychiatric drugs to young children is something which requires extreme caution. The effects of long term use (years) are my main concern.

Regards

Ed
