ADHD & Hopwater®
Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and attention deficit disorder (ADD)
symptoms may begin in childhood and continue into adulthood. ADHD and ADD symptoms, such as
hyperactivity, implulsiveness and inattentiveness, can cause problems at home, school, work, or in
relationships (WebMD). Despite being the most commonly studied and diagnosed psychiatric disorder
in children and adolescents, the cause in the majority of cases is unknown.
According to Ryan D’Agostino in the March 27, 2014 edition of Esquire declares in his title that we
are drugging the American boy (and girl). Should we be drugging our children just for being children?
We are feeding our children a Schedule II drug as defined by the DEA as
having “a high potential for abuse” and "with use potentially leading to
severe psychological or physical dependence." (According to a University of
Michigan study, Adderall is the most abused brand-name drug among high
school seniors.) In addition to stimulants like Ritalin, Adderall, Vyvanse, and
Concerta, Schedule II drugs include cocaine, methamphetamine, Demerol, and OxyContin.
D’Agostino also reports ”According to manufacturers of ADHD stimulants, they are associated with
sudden death in children who have heart problems, whether those heart problems have been previously
detected or not. They can bring on a bipolar condition in a child who didn't exhibit any symptoms of
such a disorder before taking stimulants. They are associated with "new or
worse aggressive behavior or hostility." They can cause "new psychotic
symptoms (such as hearing voices and believing things that are not true) or
new manic symptoms." They commonly cause noticeable weight loss and
trouble sleeping. In some children, some stimulants can cause the paranoid
feeling that bugs are crawling on them. Facial tics. They can cause children's
eyes to glaze over, their spirits to dampen. One study reported fears of
being harmed by other children and thoughts of suicide.
Imagine you have a six-year-old son. A little boy for whom you are
responsible. A little boy you would take a bullet for, a little boy in whom you
search for glimpses of yourself, and hope every day that he will turn out just like you, only better. A little
boy who would do anything to make you happy. Now imagine that little boy—your little boy—alone in
his bed in the night, eyes wide with fear, afraid to move, a frightening and unfamiliar voice echoing in
his head, afraid to call for you. Imagine him shivering because he hasn't eaten all day because he isn't
hungry. His head is pounding. He doesn't know why any of this is happening.
Now imagine that he is suffering like this because of a mistake. Because a
doctor examined him for twelve minutes, looked at a questionnaire on which
you had checked some boxes, listened to your brief and vague report that he
seemed to have trouble sitting still in kindergarten, made a diagnosis for
a disorder the boy doesn't have, and wrote a prescription for a powerful drug
he doesn't need. If you have a son in America, there is an alarming probability
that this has happened or will happen to you."
Unfortunately this is happening worldwide and there are a few clinicians who believe that no drugs
should be given for ADHD but they are in the minority. Marketing is powerful, and blockbuster drugs
like Ritalin are big business. Business booms, market share grows when scripts are written, and counter-
cultural doctors and therapists who advocate caution and who believe that diagnoses are made too easily
—doctors and therapists who preach alternatives to drugs—are finding themselves the butt of jokes.
