My Child is for the most part an A student I'm sure They need to be told to set down and zip it some time.There is NO real reason to put this Child on drugs.There is a report that Kids that are put on these drugs are more likely to be on drugs like crack and meth and pill popping.Please don't make drugs addicts out of our kids.Also parents sell those drugs on the street and remember they are most times paid for by the good old tax payers.

That's not true. The taxpayers don't pay for 'ritalin' not 'ridalin' anymore than we do any other drug. My child is on the Daytrana patch. We have excellent insurance and our copay is still $120. I assure you if my child did not need it she wouldn't be on it. My husband and I are taxpayers, but if you want to contribute some of your 'good old taxpayer' dollars for the cause, we'll gladly accept them.

If I was stupid enough to pop those pills I wouldn't expect the tax payers to pay for them.

Reply for "you are stupid" That name fits you just right. You are the one making untrue remarks about drugs that have helped many of kids, and trying to make some with good insurance, and that has to pay outrageous prices for the drug think that the tax payer pays for them. You really need to get your fax together, and quite repeating what you think you hear.

I'm Over 50 and have had two grandchildren on them, and they did wonders. The Dr. and the teachers in both cases worked together and in bout case the results were great. One from D @ F to A@B,the other was not that good but very much improved, they jumped from F's to B@C's. This I know no one told me anything, and bout kid's are off the medication in their teens doing great, and with out a drug problem. Now their not living in Brinkley, or Monroe County. That could be the reason why their still clean.

I know a Boy that was on the stuff and He toke himself off of it because it made Him want to kill Himself.His parents were on meth so I'm sure if He had not got away from all of it He wouldn't be doing as well as He is now in His teens.

If his parents were on meth, he most likely didn't need it in the first place. You have to look at the case, first if the parent were addicts then they did not care about the child, all they new and wanted was a high, So that makes you a authority on ritalin. I thank you are just trying to get something started, but I will say if it is given by a good doctor and managed right it can and will help a child.The kid may have wanted to kill himself to get away from his meth-head parents, you think.

From some of the stuff that goes on at the Brinkley School System maybe the teachers need some Ritalin, they do some of the stupidest things out their.I said teachers, I sorry, my old school came out, everyone out their are not teachers, it is the administration, that are fools. People have rights and just because they go to the Brinkley School System does not in any way take those right away from them.

Unless you have had to deal with a child , with these kinds of problems , you have nothing to talk about, some of these kids have no self confidence because they are trying and no one is relizing it ... When a child studies for hours and knows the materials then gets to school and fails the test ... that is a problem . a child that wants to do better but just can't seem to get it all right , Does not mean they are dumb? by no means, Now if parents are low enough to go sell their kids medicine then they are the ones with serious problems and maybe they don't deserve to have their kids.

My kids is also a good kid ,,, never in trouble at school but was having some focusing problems, my decision to try the medication route was hard , but to see someone post that kids will become drug addicts because of their condition , is hard to swallow especially from someone that doesn;t have a child with the condition... Do i think it is over prescribed most definitely , do i think it is easy to get yes... I think all kids should be tested by an educational specialist that strictly deals with these issues and make sure that is what you are looking at before you are giving any kind of medicine ... but i do think some children need it and they become sucessful young men and women .. with out having a drug problem.
