Stimulants for ADD ADHD, Yet Again — ADD Tip O the Day 682

First, Happy New Year to everyone.

Just read a post that was based on a recent study of ADD ADHD kids on stimulants.  The post said the the study outcome was that there are many kids on stimulants and that parents are not being warned of the dangerous cardiovascular side effects and that there are better alternatives. In fact, the study found that there are many kids on stimulants and that the cardiovascular side effects are few and not very serious.

We all choose our beliefs and then try to find facts to support them and ignore those that disprove them (mostly unconsciously), but this seems a little over the top.

I tried to find the post on facebook but couldn’t.  Will post the link if I can find it.

Just found it!  On MY facebook!    The Link


And the classic French kids link – it’s the grains of truth that make the pile of BS look appealing.

I’m struggling to get the blog and the twitter                   @thebullyonline working.  They are both up and running, at last, but need some work.  Arrrgghhh!

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
