I am just watching TV and saw an ad suggesting I go to http://www.understood.org/en . Take a look, typical get you kid on drugs website.
Here they say they are not affiliated with any pharmaceutical company but look how at the page on medications https://www.understood.org/en/learning-attention-issues/treatments-approaches/medications/what-are-the-side-effects-of-adhd-medication they downplay the side effects.
“Affiliated”, what does that really mean ? Do they take ‘donations’ from pharma ?

Same old tangled web of weavers in the child drugging industry.April 10, 2017 at 1:52 pm #98763
Thousands of school children are suffering from being improperly drugged and/or being placed in LD classes. The labeling of children at an early age becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy — the children learn to see themselves as defective and/or disabled in some way, and act out the part. Children don’t need to be forced to sit still in boring classes and they don’t need to experience misery as a preparation for adult life. More and more child development experts agree today, simply, that they need to go outside and play. Childhood is not a disease, and youthful energy does not need a “treatment.”
If parents only knew the truth about “understood.org” !

Lets see it if ever gets approved. I guess they are playing that game now where they create the illusion of no opposition by only posting pro child drugging comments.June 1, 2017 at 10:45 am #103940
It might be a case where only the first comment needs approval, I think that’s how the NAMI forum does it now after I let them have it.
This website “understood” same old crap all these lies to convince parents to drug their kids.June 1, 2017 at 5:15 pm #103964
There’s going to be a large part of the next generation of kids who will grow up on psych meds. Can you imagine the backlash when they start developing akathisia, tardive dyskinesia, diabetes, and other metabolic diseases? A lot of these are kids who really have nothing wrong with them.
