Many people are starting to Nootrogen Review question the rise in diagnosed cases of ADHD in this country. Some people question if the condition actually exists. The United States is one of the only countries that think this is even a problem. In many other nations it is considered normal childhood behavior and is first treated by natural means and not the drugs that we use to address the problem. Of all the Ritalin used in the world the U.S. is responsible for consuming 90% of it while we account for only 5% of the world's population. For people that do have ADHD proper diagnosis and treatment can have profound effects on their lives. They do better in school, at work and get along better with their peers. These drugs have been shown to help these people. The problem is that these drugs have the same type of affect on people that do not have ADHD. Diagnosis is sometimes a blurry area. There is no biological test that tells us if a person has it or not. It is more objective than scientific. If a person becomes well versed in the symptoms they can fake it. The positive affects of these treatments can only be obtained by a diagnosis of ADHD and a prescription for these drugs. Many times parents and teachers do not feel like dealing with a child that is out of control. Diagnosis and treatment is a quick fix to change any negative behavior.

What it does not do is address the underlying problem that the child has. The problem is not the manufacturers of these medications it is the people that use them as the only or primary way to treat ADHD. Even in children that are not a problem it has become all too easy to call them a problem and subject them with unneeded treatments.
