Drowned in a Sea of Prescriptions

Alan Schwarz published Drowned in a Seal of Prescriptions in February, 2013 in the New York Times. His article highlights what is an alarming trend of increasing prescriptions of ADHD medications, including amphetamines and their derivatives, to college-age men and women. I have for quite some time now shared Mr. Schwarz's concern about the alarming increase in the prescribing of DEA-controlled substances for ADHD. In fact, I have written my own blog entitled ADHD U.S.A. - Is Rise in ADHD Treatment Truly Justified? If Mr. Schwarz is reading this, I would love to invite him for a cup of coffee or tea to discuss ADHD in the U.S.A.
