Why not ask another question -- one I have not heard the experts, doctors, psychologists, psychiatrists, or journalists and reporters or anyone else discuss during the many hours of TV coverage and newspaper reporting: What role do the many medications our young people are prescribed play in the abhorrent behavior of these killers?

Why your kid is drugged in school

How it works:

The State Department of Education gets monies from the Federal Government (Disability) under a program called "IDEA" for each child diagnosed with a disability. A disability could be ADD/ADHD, Bi-polar disorder, Depression or any of the other mental diagnoses.

Who profits: The State Department of Education, the mental health and counseling Industry, the Pharmaceutical company and the money that is kicked back by lobbyists for politicians special interest and of course the legal profession.

All this at the cost of your child's Health and welfare.

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!

A pharmaceutical falsehood designed to promote their product from a unknown source. Buyer caution

I've been on Strattera from adhd-generics.com for a month and am currently taking 60mg a day for ADHD and anxiety. I'm also taking Lexapro and Buspar. So far, I've experienced no side effects and this has been almost a miracle. My anxiety is almost gone, I am able to think more clearly and concentrate on work and other obligations. I'm much less impulsive than before taking Strattera and I tend to think things through before acting.
