In the absence of any objective medical tests to determine who has ADD or ADHD, doctors rely in part on standardized assessments and the impressions of teachers and guardians while the they administer leave little room for other causes or aggravating factors, such as diet, or environment.

Hence, diagnosing a child or adolescent with ADD or ADHD is often the outcome, although no organic basis for either disease has yet to be clinically proven. Psychiatrists may then prescribe psychotropic drugs for the children without first without making it clear to parents that these medications can have severe side-effects including insomnia, loss of appetite, headaches, psychotic symptoms and even potentially fatal adverse reactions, such as cardiac arrhythmia.

And yet, despite these dangers, many school systems actually work with government agencies to force parents to drug their children, threatening those who refuse with the prospect of having their children taken from the home unless they cooperate.

    I have ADHD myself. I’ve been taking these drugs for 11 years. My ADHD never used to be so bad. But now I can not function without these drugs and am extremely dependent on them. I hate having to take them.

    Teachers want to drug all the kids who disrupt the class. These are usually the smartest ones who are bored, as they figure out the information the first time around. Also the most outgoing social children, as talking is disruptive. Another targeted group, the class clowns, these are the happiest of our children. I watched a school expel or drug a whole class of kids……they suggested it for mine, I refused. He had best grades in the whole district, though he was always a bit of extra work for the teachers to deal with. The drugging is for the teachers convenience, their laziness.
