ADHD meds do work for some people but for others side effects can often outweigh the benefits. If you have a kid suffering from the classic symptoms of ADHD, I'd suggest you try out alternative medicine first. The problem with alternative treatments is that there are quite a few out there and most of them have very little credibility, but there are a few that do seem to have some positive impact on the sufferer.

Its not to say alternative medicines are completely free of side effects, but they are usually very mild and in most cases, hardly any side effects at all. Go for something that improves concentration and focus. Also, make sure the company prepares its treatments under FDA regulations or have the necessary license. Do not just buy from any old store even if its homeopathic.

This site talks about side effects and efficacy of some of the key prescription ADHD meds. Look at the sidebar under 'most viewed'.

Inside the Battle to Define Mental Illness

Every so often Al Frances says something that seems to surprise even him. Just now, for instance, in the predawn darkness of his comfortable, rambling home in Carmel, California, he has broken off his exercise routine to declare that “there is no definition of a mental disorder. It’s bullshit. I mean, you just can’t define it.” Then an odd, reflective look crosses his face, as if he’s taking in the strangeness of this scene: Allen Frances, lead editor of the fourth edition of the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (universally known as the DSM-IV), the guy who wrote the book on mental illness, confessing that “these concepts are virtually impossible to define precisely with bright lines at the boundaries.” For the first time in two days, the conversation comes to an awkward halt.

Pasted from < http://www.wired.com/magazine/2010/12/ff_dsmv... ;

There are no genetic tests, no brain scans, blood tests, chemical imbalance tests or X-rays that can scientifically/medically prove that any psychiatric disorder is a medical condition.

These are the shining examples of our community in the Metro East. Unlike every other Topix city out there, these idiots sit on here 24/7 and harass everyone as they think its "cute". They are so powerless they get a little thrill of power from trolling. They have no idea how the rest of us see them and know they are low income due to laziness, sorry sit at home with nothing going on in their lives losers.

The most amusing thing is that they THINK they are anonymous! They negatively rate every post they see. They try to make it seem like there are a group who are doing this BS on here, but its really not. Just one sorry sad little person. You CAN find out who they are. Since they made the BND pay, one of them is a sad little white trash trying to be not white trash woman cant help herself but come on here and get her angst out. I feel horrible for her husband and son that they have to deal with this lunatic.

Speaking of doing so-called studies and psychiatric medication, someone should do a study on how many mentally deranged people.. and diagnosed schizophrenics ( like the BND stalker freak antiques woman).. use the internet as free therapy by verbally assaulting and stalking everyone they encounter to feel better about their miserable selves. Yeah, stalking. As in stalking and getting addresses and pictures to put on her site of people she pretends are somehow against her. THESE are the kinds you will deal with on Belleville Topix.
Did I ever tell you about the landlord who gets her tenants to do her dirty work in Belleville? Yeah, crazy asses all over here. Must be something in the water and I cant wait until I MOVE.
