  •  I agree that meds of many kind (I am especially (6+ / 0-)

    against anti-psychotics and parents who try to use the ADHD speed meds to "up" their childrens performance.  Also, any child who is restless because they are being taught crap or questions and disrupts the teacher is labled ADHD.  However, as someone who has ADHD (they didn't lable it back in the day) and whose son also has it (it can be biologically verified through brain wave tests), I am not against all meds all the time.  Just like I question the Brave New World, I always want to question any solution where one size fits all and try to deal with the specific individual and do what works to empower that person the most.  BTW, I never had meds -- my son took them when he was in school because it helped him graduate, but not now that he's out -- he says it spoils his creativity and I agree with that.
