    I wonder how many people would want to give their 22 month old Ritalin or any other ADHD pharmaceuticals?

    That's freaking crazy, and that doctor should be held accountable for such a dangerous diagnosis.


    Too many people want to drug kids these days, be it parents, teachers or doctors, instead of using behavior modification to help them. It's gotten out of control!

    It's consistent with the prediliction in our culture today of treating being a boy as an illness.

    I think the PARENTS should be given Ritalin!!! WTF are these people THINKING!!?? The brain chemistry of children is in flux and fing with it is STUPID at BEST! The doctor who prescribed it should LOSE HIS LICENSE to "practice" mediacine.

    Ritalin is contraindicated for anyone under the age of six. Either the doctor malpracted or the person might not be truthful.

    That bring another question to my mind. I am wondering how many bad doctors are really held accountable in our society. I think bad doctors that are not held accountable hurts the good doctors that take very good care of their patients. The doctor that butchered dad the first time when he was diagnosed with cancer had butchered many other patients. In that state the medical board would do nothing about this guy and no telling how many people the man actually maim or killed.

    I also know that a good doctor can be harassed for denying some of these pharma quacks access to their patients under the right conditions.

    The gal is not suing the quack she simply was asking for any medical informational help for a small claims suit. She does not want to pay for a bad doc visit. I fully understand that no one would want to pay for a bad mechanic either. Are doctors excused from accountability?

    My kids' former daycare pushed for an ADHD diagnosis and medication for my then-3 1/2 year old daughter, they even tried to get child services involved. Two other chidlren, one her age and one younger but I'm not sure quite how old, at that daycare were already on Ritalin. They also claimed her twin brother was autistic because of a tactile sensitivity. I won easily and switched daycares - immediately. Believe me, it happens.
