I have ADHD and how I wish during my time in school way back, these medications were available. As an adult I was diagnosed and that explained my annoying behavior as a child. My life has been better for it and the medications, along with exercise and better eating habits has made my life much better. Medication is not for everybody. But don't take it away from some just because others may have problems.

I am now able to sit down for more than 10 minutes at a time and read, write, and study for my college classes. The only thing that bothers me is that I sometimes forget to take my dose of medication. Other than this instance, I am able to function better as a person!
Tracking was relatively good. When I say that I mean it gave you dates for purchase, processed, and shipped. Only downside was that it took 12 days when they said it would only take 3-5. The tablets did come all the way from India and ultimately took the normal amount of time from the shipping date.

Drugs are prescribed to children via recommendation of two-bit school officials at an increasing alarming rate.What's even worse is parents are just going along with it like wildebeast off a cliff.They do so often because it makes their lives easier because now their children become lethargic lemmings at home.Wake up mom and dad....YOU are frying your own child's liver.
