My sons were on Ritalin for a brief period of time. I was uneasy about the medications and, after doing some research, found the work of Dr. David B. Stein ("Ritalin is Not the Answer," and other books) I urge every parent who questions whether or not to medicate their child to first read Dr. Stein's books and articles. You can find out more at http://www.drdavestein.com
Ritalin is in no way like the street drug crank ,crank is a strong anphetamine its a powser version of crysle meth.Now they are trying to atack ritalin because it has been given to children and theres a big arguement between parents everywhere, i have a terible sleep disorder and now the battle has efected me, because they want to control over medicateing children and havent distinguished that its the children who we have to watch out for, its a mild stimulant for a adult that is no big deaL its like drinking a energy drink for the average person it just makes me feel like i can function normaly.Now they want to sell everyone with a sleep disorder or chronic fatigue a sleep aptheia mask, I dont have sleep apthea yet when i talk to the dr at the sleep center its the same exact speil they give you at the sleep number matress sales everthing leads back to their money makeing product. Im in a liveing nightmare i9 fight allday to keep my eyes open its gotten to the point t6hat i dont know how much more i can take!!!!!!!!!! my life is a liveing hell

Kids shouldnt be put on it in the first place. Everyone has to learn to cope with who and what they are. ADD is caused by lead exposure in the womb or as a small child. It causes frontal lobe damage taking away your executive skills. The brain wave energy that should be working in the frontal lobes in decision making, goes to the back "visual" areas of the brain. ADD people should be good in design, the arts ,film etc...ADHD people work well in physical jobs like construction or athletics or should exercise every morning before being forced to sit still. ADHD might be ADD with mercury poisoning on top of the lead poisoning. Mercury causes epinephrine to build up in your brain leading to manic behaviors. To heal you have to stop being exposed to heavy metals-a feat near impossible in this coal fired world.(dont eat fish,rice, watch where you live, rail road tracks, Still and Housatonic rivers, LI sound, Danbury, Norwalk, Brooklyn etc-very contaminated. older exterior paints) Pesticides like DDT are also able to cause ADD by central nervous system depression.Chlorine can cause CNS depression too as can lots of toxic chemicals in our environment. What you need is less toxins-not more. Your liver gets damaged by Ritalin. Your liver and kidneys are what keep you alive. If damaged, toxins and nitrogen build up in your blood causing more damage especially to your brain. Saunas can clean toxins without kidney damage. 9-11 responders were finally helped by taking saunas. When the trade centers burned, all kinds of toxins were released from computers, smoke detectors etc...It cant hurt to try either. Hard physical labor helps me too -work up a sweat and shower-gets the gunk out of my blood.

I can recommend a reputable internet pharmacy.
I figured it would be enough to give the Strattera pills a try and I was quite satisfied with the result.
This replaced Ritalin and Adderall. I liked it really well and more importantly, it seemed to work very well. And the this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site http://x-generics.info I've just placed my 3rd order.

Strattera from http://adhd-generic.info works great. I am able to focus and am able to do more tasks at once, which my job requires. 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!
