Would I allow Ritalin or other similar drugs to be prescribed to my children because they fidgeted, squirmed in their seat or were inattentive? Hell would freeze over a thousand times before I’d submit to such idiocy. But today an estimated five million Canadian and U.S. children are prescribed medication for this condition.


CANDIDATES FOR RITALIN? Five million Canadian and United States children are already taking Ritalin for a diagnosis of hyperactivity.


Others, such as Dr. Peter R. Breggin, a renowned researcher in this field, say doctors have become “oblivious to the fact these drugs cause manic and schizophrenic-like disorders.” He cites a Canadian study in which a staggering nine percent of children on this medication developed psychotic symptoms.

He argues that when children on ADHD medication become paranoid and have delusions, they’re diagnosed with schizophrenia or bipolar disorder. Rather than weaning them off the drug they are prescribed more drugs to treat these problems.
