The DEA (Drug Enforcement Agency) sets manufacturing quotas for controlled substances like Ritalin, Adderall and Focalin and are concerned about the abuse of these ADHD drugs by teens and college students.
This limits how many drugs from a certain class that drug companies can make and sell. So they may try to maximize profits by marketing and selling the newer patented drugs rather than generic ones that cost less.
This has created a smaller supply of the generic ADHD drugs that so many children are taking.
Because these ADHD drugs are class II controlled and addictive, withdrawal from them must be done gradually and under a doctor’s supervision and Dr. Mary Ann Block says they should not be used in children at all.
Dr. Block has successfully treated thousands of children and adults labeled ADHD, without using drugs and is the author of No More ADHD and No More Ritalin
With a short supply available, perhaps this is a good time to consider coming off the drugs and finding the real cause of the ADHD symptoms, which can be low blood sugar, nutritional deficiencies and even allergies.
