MEDICATION OR NO MEDICATION?


I have ADD and I think we don't really need medication to control it. Parent should wait until there kids get older and see if they cant control it and they also need to think about the risk.

RISK OF PUTTING YOUR CHILDERN O MEDICATION.
1. the medication dose not cure it. It only relives the symptoms so what`s the point of put them on it.
2.if your doctor want to put on a simulant you might want to think twice because a stimulant can trigger hostility, aggression, anxiety depression and paranoia and you might want to think three times if you have a family history of suicide because there at a higher risk.
OTHER ALTERNATIVE THEN MEDICATION .
There are other ways to help your kids then putting them od medication this things are:
they need a healthy diet.
They need to go to behavioral therapy.
They need to get plenty of exercise and sleep.
CONCLUSION
Now the choice is up to the parents to put you kids on medication or not on medication . I think the parent should wait until the kid gets older a see if he or she can control it.

I agree. Have you watched FRONTLINE?

They have a program about over-medicating kids.
