ADD and or ADHD

This new study revealed that stimulant medications, specifically methylphenidate, are associated with a 6- to 7-times increased risk for sudden death in children and adolescents. UGH!

What does the FDA say about that? “Given the limitation of this study’s methodology, the FDA is unable to conclude that these data affect the overall risk and benefit profile of stimulant medications used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity.”

The ADD/ADHD Page is devoted to the holistic approach…chiropractic care, dietary modification (no more food colorings and preservatives!), and no more dangerous drugs!

This is just one of many pages in the Pediatrics Section .
