New Study Confirms: Millions of kids misdiagnosed with ADHD and drugged
New Study published in American Journal of Family Therapy confirms millions of normal kids misdiagnosed with ADHD & drugged.
by CCHR Int—A new study published todayin the American Journal of Family Therapy has found that millions of children have been misdiagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and wrongly prescribed amphetamine-like drugs categorized by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in the same class of highly addictive drugs as cocaine, opium and morphine.
The study conducted by researchers at the New England Center for Pediatric Psychology and the Rhode Island College Department of Special Education found that of the “over 5 million children who are now being treated with ADHD medication, a majority may be suffering from Faux-ADHD, a disorder linked to irregular bedtimes” and that a majority of the children diagnosed ADHD may be unnecessarily medicated. Now while we at CCHR applaud any study on the issue of “ADHD” which is not ghost written by Big Pharma or those with a vested interest in drugging kids, we would like to pose two simple questions regarding this latest study:
“runs about or climbs excessively in situations when it is not appropriate”
” is often “on the go”
“acts as if driven by a motor”
”blurts out answers”
”is easily distracted”
” loses pencils or toys”
“often doesn’t seem to listen”
2) Given the diagnoses itself is not a medical condition, what child being prescribed drugs isn’t being “unnecessarily medicated?” ADHD drugs are classified by the DEA as schedule ll drugs because they are as highly addictive as cocaine, morphine and opium. ADHD drugs such as Ritalin, Concerta and Adderall aredocumented by the FDA and international drug regulatory agenciesto cause hallucinations, mania, psychosis, drug dependence, stunted growth, insomnia, heart attack, suicidal ideation and sudden death. Normal children are simply being drugged. Not medicated. Drugged.
The fact is thatany childdiagnosed with ADHD has been misdiagnosed. Any childplaced on cocaine–like ADHD drugs is being unnecessarily drugged. The diagnoses of ADHD in any circumstances is a Faux-diagnoses, serving only the psychiatric pharmaceutical industries and fueling their $4.8 billion a year ADHD drug empire.
