    , 2009 -- A new study suggests that children and teens who take stimulants like Ritalin for ADHD have an increased risk for sudden cardiac death, but the FDA says the study has major limitations and should not change the way the drugs are used.

    There have long been concerns that the stimulants used to treat ADHD may increase the risk for sudden death in children with undiagnosed heart conditions.

    The new research finds corroborating evidence for concern, although all agree that the risk of sudden cardiac death is very small.

    more reason to stop the drugging of children in the u.s. how long will people allow the pharmacies and doctors make zombies of kids...kids should be a damned hand fun...boys should be wilder than small demons...that is what kids are....little fucking ids....that for some reason instead of controlling our little ids...we prefer to drug them?

    you can discuss it all you want...its lazy ass teachers and lazy ass parents in that order....or did they stop advertising to teachers? the drug companies? fucking hyprocritical morons have that "dare" program...dare to resist education...or some shit but then drug them with legal shit..now there is only a slight risk of your child dropping dead but we are sure willing to risk that before we pull a basically unneeded drug that makes millions off the market.

    They gotta keep them profits going.....It is sicking!

    Birth control pills are a hazard to many young women health yet they keep on prescribing them without the young women being fully aware of the dangers. My daughter spent six years being treated for clots after two years of taking birth control pills.

    No, it is a legit thing , the problem is NOW every kid has it cause of drug company reps and weak willed doctors and parents and overbearing schools.

    Just like so many kids now are put into IN CARE psychiatric facilities. There really are a few out there that need it. But it is so much easier if they just label all of the kids with it.

    The Facility I went to during the years 1996 to 2001 went from have a geriatric unit and predominately adult treatment with maybe 4 rooms for kids in a separate wing to now having maybe 6 rooms for adults and those are mostly for treating drug rehab and the rest of the facility is ALL kids.

    When I visit my therapist every Monday morning there are lots of kids there and more being tested all week long.

    Psychiatric treatment needs to exist for kids, but now it is just a simple cover it all crutch for any simple or complex problem. And most of the meds are not even tested for children. Take Ritalin, in children it is supposed to relax and slow them down, in adults it is supposed to wake them up and speed them a bit. I took it for over a year cause of my need to be active with my depression. The common part is it is supposed to help you focus and concentrate but in children it is supposed to slow them, in adults it is supposed to speed them up.

    I disagree with the order.

    It is the parents' job, pleasure and responsibility to raise their children, not the teachers'. Parents are the ones responsible for their child's health and well-being. Unfortunately, it is easier for many parents to hand that over to the school system. Which is pitiful, IMO.

    And I will say that there are some good teachers out there, but they are not the ones pushing meds on kids who don't need it anyway.

    My son was diagnosed ADHD. I gave him a cup of coffee every morning. Got that from a friend's pediatrician. Her son had asthma, the albuteral (sp?) made him hyper as hell (dos that to adults too) and the ped told her about the coffee. Same effect, no side effects.

    There's a big push to deny the effects of mercury in our kids immunizations, but mercury is a heavy metal, toxic, and does neurological damage (up to and including autism ) that is wholly preventable by single shot doses that require no preservative. It costs a little more, and there is the problem.

    My son was born with a perfect APGAR score of 10. Had three shots one day to make up for a winter of colds and flu. One dose of the MMR vaccine already has more mercury than an adult should ingest in a day via fish, but the public health nurse thought this was ok. I was young, poor, and didn't know. We're (or were) taught to trust our medical community.

    The same drug companies that put profit over safety in creating these problems now want to sell a questionable "cure." They don't know what psychotropic drugs do to not yet fully developed brains, and they don't care. Why is that a surprise? They didn't care about the damage they did to begin with.

    Ritalin and the rest of those "chemical straightjackets" are fucking stupid.

    Yeah, let's all get the kids toked up on amphetamines...:clap2:

    Also on the list of "fucking stupid things stupid parents do to their kids"...

    • Parents who take their son in for "corrective surgery" to fix protruding ears, or some other "cosmetic defect." No, seriously, some neighbors of mine had a young son who had ears that stuck out, and he was getting teased at school by other kids. So instead of going to the school, meeting with the principal and making sure that the stupid playground bullshit stopped right then, they take him in for surgery. Which is basically saying, "Yeah, you are flawed. Gotta get that fixed..." :eek:
    • Parents who use video game consoles as babysitters. I know a guy who's in his 20's and basically grew up playing video games. Now, he weighs 250 pounds, wears a back brace, and has already had TWO HEART ATTACKS. Count 'em...TWO. At 20...
    • Parents who let their daughters dress like whores. I swear to God, the next time I stumble across a MySpace profile of a 13 year old girl in her bra and panties...........

    Goddamn...
