Recently there have been heated discussions on some Facebook friends’ personal pages regarding the issues of the labeling and overmedication of children. In the past few decades I have worked with children from three years old through adults in their 50’s who had been diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD).  Based on my observation and my clients’ reports, stimulants such as ritalin, dexedrine, or cylert were the drugs of choice prescribed by Western medicine. Some swore by it, yet others complained about a long list of side effects such as nervousness, agitation, insomnia, nausea, stomach pains, weight loss, growth retardation, etc.
