CADDRA’s Response to ‘Ritalin gone Wrong’

The Board of the Canadian ADHD Resource Alliance (CADDRA) recently submitted a response to Sroufre’s article published in the New York Times (originally published in the National Post). We thought this was an interesting piece to add to the conversation.

A few highlights:

“His article ignores decades of genetic research that indicates ADHD is highly inheritable. It dismisses modern brain scan technology showing considerable difference in the brains of children, adolescents and adults with ADHD compared to the brains of individuals without ADHD. “

“Contrary to claims in “Ritalin Gone Wrong”, the stimulant medications used for treating ADHD are considered among the most effective medications in all of medicine. They have been in more or less continuous use since 1937. As clinicians practicing in the ADHD field for more than 25 years, we have seen firsthand that these medications are safe and effective over the long-term, with few side effects.”

“This article will unnecessarily worry parents who have made the decision to place their child on medication, add to the stigma erroneously associated with ADHD medication, and may make them feel like bad parents.”
