Our expert says:
Anyone who told you Ritalin is no better than cocaine is ignorant, crude, and pompous. There is a peculiar prejudice against Ritalin and related drugs, which is not based on any scientific facts or sound argument. No other treatment has proved as useful in ADHD, as you have seen for yourself. Yes, some peopkle diagnose ADHD sloppilly and too easily ; and yes, some push kids onto Ritalin unnecessarily. But anything, even water, used badly, is bad for people. Except that there is SOME evidence that
E kids are helped by omega products like HiQ, no other treatment has been convincingly shown to be useful. Sorry you have encountered such prejudiced and ignorant people. Probably best not to mention the nature of his treatment, simply smile modestly if anyone says how well he's doing.
