Study: ADHD Drugs Send Thousands to ERs

Accidental overdoses and side effects from attention deficit drugs likely send thousands of children and adults to emergency rooms, according to the first national estimates of the problem.

The rest of this story is pretty sad really. I wonder why not so many years ago we did not have so many kids on drugs, for what might just be a little overactiveness. Unfortunately, we now do not have parents as interested in rearing kids, and it seems easier for kids to wander off into worlds that lead to a fractured focus. I often wonder if Coffea which is really for an overactive mind might not help kids settle down and focus enough to be seen as normal. I'd love to find some kids whose parents would like to try Homeopathy and Flower remedies as gentle, no side effect, ways of solving the ADHD problems. Getting kids out of any sense of responsibility for their actions which is what drugs do, seems to me the beginning of a kind of dependency that we all would prefer to aviod.
