“ADHD: Should We Be Medicalising Childhood?”

London’s Telegraph reports: “Despite the fact that Ritalin, which works by stimulating a part of the brain that modifies mental and behavioural reactions, is not the first line treatment for ADHD under NICE guidance, UK prescriptions are currently at an all-time high, having doubled in children over the past decade … Now come fresh fears ADHD itself is being ‘vastly overdiagnosed’ in the first place.”

      • I agree… I see what you mean… it’s two sides of the same coin. Can’t be really diagnosed, can’t be overdiagnosed, can’t be underdiagnosed, it’s a fake diagnosis which doesn’t exist, etc. What I mean is something nonexistent can’t really be diagnosed at all with any validity…

        There’s really no “it” in the first place. There is no ADHD.
