I have not posted anything in a long time, but I feel it is important to share some information with you. This morning in our local paper (RGJ), author John Rosemond has an article talking about the risks posed by some of the more common ADHD medications. The article is troubling and certainly could cause parents/caregivers concern. However, before I was comfortable posting the article, I wanted to take a look at the study he quotes from. So, I did some digging and decided to share the Medscape Interview with the study’s principal investigator with you rather than the article, as I feel this presents the information in a more thoughtful manner, stating that the study results indicate that more research needs to be done.
The truth is that we all need to be well informed when medications are used. This information is absolutely something to be aware of and consider when making choices for your child/a child in your care. Informed decisions about the best interventions/treatment for your child/a child in your care are what it is all about!
