    I don’t have any informed opinion, one way or the other, about Ritalin, etc. But thanks for writing this. Yours is definitely a view that needs consideration.

    I especially liked the point about kids not necessarily knowing (or knowing how to tell a psychiatrist) that they’re suffering anxiety.Report

    I have a real problem with long term drug use….especially on brains that are developing. God knows how it impacts kids long term. Drug therapy should not be the first therapy tried.Report

    One of several reasons I avoided child psychiatry as a specialty. Hopefully, the medicalization of every problem will not last forever.Report
