    And not necessarily by choice.

    Some ADHD meds may increase risk of psychosis, study finds

    A new study sheds light on a rare but potentially dangerous risk of commonly-used medications to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Researchers evaluated the two most common types of ADHD medications and found that, while the risk is low, certain drugs have an increased risk of psychosis.

    "We looked at new users, people who are being prescribed these medications for the first time," Lauren V. Moran, MD, a psychiatrist at McLean Hospital who led the study, told CBS News. "We compared amphetamines, which is Adderall and Vyvanse, to people who were prescribed methylphenidates, which is Ritalin or Concerta. "We found that the Adderall-type drugs had an increased risk of psychosis."

    They ! Are the result of 20 yrs of ADHD drugs and bad parenting! As well as a lot of psycho babble and rationalizing children's actions. Dad had a short temper and we all knew what "stop it" meant ! :slap:

    Weed doesn't count.
    And most of those 'crackers' on crystal are the same ones who were
    prescribed Ritalin when they were in 4th grade.

    Giving kids mood altering drugs should be the very last resort to dealing with behavior problems. Unfortunately it is often the first choice. Medical science used to think it was ok to treat mentally ill people by sticking an ice pick through their eye socket and stabbing a critical brain center. Of course that turned those poor people into vegetables for the rest of their lives. But it sure calmed them down!
