New ADHD Drug Warning: Hyper? Sudden Death Will Cure That.

die.jpg The FDA announced that a number of ADHD drugs on the market will be forced to carry labels warning its users of side effects including heart problems, psychotic behavior, and sudden death.

Dexedrine, Ritalin, and a few others will now warn its users of:

I don’t know about you, but I’ll take “difficulty concentrating” over any of those any day of the week.

Some doctors have expressed concern that new warnings could dampen use of the medicines, which the FDA has estimated see about 1 million prescriptions for adults and 2 million for children each month.

AKA the pharm industry is worried that their stocks will take a dive unless more people are told they are sick. Here’s an idea: take better care of yourself so you don’t have to drug yourself to death!

The politicans are all in the pockets of the pharm industry. The drug headlines are getting more ridiculous by the day and Big Pharm is slated to spend billions more on marketing in the near future – that\’s a frightening trend. Parents DO need to wake up. And why are the kids being prescribed twice as much medication as adults?
