The whole ADD/ADHD drugging is a scam. Very expensive on the taxpayers.

I don't believe it's a "scam" however I do believe people are quick to label kids who act up as having it so they can drug them. However, those drugs don't work for children who really don't have just makes them even more hyper.

American Psychiatric Association admits they have no test for their chemical imbalance which caused the psychotropic drugging of millions of people including children. It was this falsehood that drove up insurance costs and caused normal people to be subject to poisonous substance at the cost of their sanity. There is no science to the mental health and counseling industry. They are strictly political and danger to the society and a threat to mankind..

Psychiatry by itself, with it inventive ideologies stemming from "phrenology" to electro shock therapy and psycho-drugging without a test for chemical imbalance is dealing into the dark science much like one that would practice voodoo or witchcraft or play the Tarot cards .

I can recommend a reputable Indian pharmacy.
Before I ordered Strattera here I ran a thorough investigation on the manufacturing practices in India in general and found out that there is death penalty for counterfeiting drugs there. I figured it would be enough to give the Strattera pills a try and I was quite satisfied with the result.
Indian Strattera and Ritalin similar meds. This is ADHD medications. And the this suppliers seem honest and reliable. On the site I've just placed my 3rd order. I hope this info will be of any help to the community.

I have ordered 2 times from this website PILLSMEDSHOP. COM . I called yesterday the customer care and asked for a discount as i was about to order twice the regular amount.

Very great deal and very smooth transaction. PILLSMEDSHOPdotCOM was on top of my order and shipped it within a day. Thats all that they have control over and they done it fast. It sat in customs for a little bit but they have no control over the sluggishness of how customs work.

There's many ways to naturally help yourself be more attentive. Your diet, enough sleep, exercise and so on. Most times it's hard to follow those three things.

For me, work can get hectic and zoning out or not paying attention becomes a problem. Recently started looking for natural supplements that help with brain function and I stumbled upon this supplement on amazon called instant att.

It's around 2-3pm that I can lose track of things and so far this stuff has kept me on track and even made more proactive than normal. Would recommend it to anyone.
