Dr. Baughman:
My name is S P. I am an attorney in Johnson City, Tennessee. I
received an alarming phone call from my best friend this evening, and after
doing a bit of research on the internet, I found you.
My friend's 12-year-old son has been diagnosed with "ADHD," (his teachers
say he has trouble concentrating at school) and was placed on Adderal five
weeks ago. He immediately began showing symptoms of nausea and weight loss
and could not sleep. After going through this for five weeks, it was
discovered that the pharmacy misread the prescription and gave the child 30
mg tablets instead of the 10 mg tablets that were prescribed.
My friend is very worried about whether any long term damage has been done
to his child as a result of the overdose. Can you offer any advice? Thank
you so much for your time. 

[Fred A. Baughman Jr., MD:
chances of persisting, demonstrable
physical damage are, remote. If anything good is to come of this it is
recognition of facts (1) that the representation of ADHD as a disease is a
fraud, (2) all of the schedule 2 stimulants are highly addictive, and over
time, invariably damage the brain. I would advise that the child be
examined for toxic effects by a neurologist (if a tic, tics develope that
were not there beforehand, this would be Adderall induced) and a
cardiologist. No professional relationship exists. Keep me posted.]
