Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (a.k.aADD, ADHD) is a common mental disorder. Symptoms include being easily distracted, difficulty focusing, and hyperactivity. ADHD drugs make a lot of money for drug companies.
Although plenty of kids have ADHD and need medication for it, a lot of the time perfectly normal kids are mis-diagnosed due to normal, child-like behaviors. This is due to a lot of advertising and presentations given to doctors that overstate the risks of ADHD and the benefits of taking ADHD medication like Adderall and Ritalin; while downplaying the risks of taking these medications.. If someone pressures you to get yourself or your kid medication for this disorder, remember that it's up to you and you don't have to get it.
