'I spoke with [some] colleagues the other day and they mentioned three cases recently where parents blatantly asked for the medication so that their children would perform better in school, yet there were no other indications that the child had ADHD,' says Dr. Nick Yates, a pediatrician and director of medical ethics for Mercy Hospital in Buffalo, N.Y."
What is going on in our world?!!! What happened to sitting down with your child and working with them every day to help them with their school work?!!
And this, after the FDA just slapped a black box warning on a drug used for ADHD.
Man are we screwed up these days.
