O’Donnell Web Archives, 7 September 2006, Back to school shopping list now includes stimulants
From the linked article at Chris’s:Â
Parents want their kids to excel in school, and they’ve heard about the illegal use of stimulants such as Ritalin and Adderall for “academic doping.” Hoping to obtain the drugs legally, they pressure pediatricians for them. Some even request the drugs after openly admitting they don’t believe their child has ADHD.
I’m glad we never had to put up with this pressure.Â Maybe I’m a wimp, but … I don’t care.
