ADHD Drugs Now Have Warnings!
What I am about to say, is… humbly, my opinion. But, that’s what Blogs are about, right? Let’s set it up this way. Big Pharma (large drug companies) have an agenda… to sell drugs. Yeah, obvious, I know. But, their goal is sell as many drugs as possible. Some time back they decided that if they could sell a lot of drugs with “X” number of diseases, then “X+more” diseases would allow them to sell more drugs! So, I believe, they started coming up with “conditions” and “tendencies” and “syndromes” that their drugs treated. Cancer is a REAL disease. It is organically demonsratable. So is a virus. But some “conditions” are “emotionally based” and some “syndromes” are seen only through “behaviors.” So, if you figet and have a hard time maintaining your attention… it may be a “disease!” Now, I CAN’T say that ADHD is one of these “created” diseases. I simply don’t know. However, they long ago prescribed drugs to folks … and drugs are ALWAYS dangerous! However, NOW these ADHD drugs are killing some people. Ooops! Now, the FDA is requiring Big Pharma to post warnings on their precious drugs! THAT might cut into sales! Maybe.
“A Food and Drug Administration advisory panel on Thursday narrowly voted to recommend putting the strongest type of warning possible on widely prescribed stimulant drugs for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.
The FDA had asked the committee to consider what types of studies could be used to look at whether the drugs, which include Ritalin, Adderall, Focalin, Methylin, Metadate and Concerta, increase the risk of sudden death, heart attacks or strokes.
An FDA report released prior to the meeting said that 25 children and adults had died suddenly from 1999 to 2003 after taking ADHD drugs.
Doctors wrote more than 31 million prescriptions last year for stimulant ADHD drugs, according to IMS Health, a pharmaceutical information company. ”
31 million prescriptions!!! Wow! That’s a lot of profit! And, unfortunately, a lot of consequences from un-natural drugs damaging the health of “patients.” It is a shame.
