Aderall ; SIDE EFFECTS of “legal speed”, the sad reality for American children with ADHD

3 Oct


“Adderall (amphetamine and dextroamphetamine salts) is used for treating attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy.”


  • fast, pounding, or uneven heartbeats;
  • feeling light-headed, fainting;
  • increased blood pressure (severe headache, blurred vision, trouble concentrating, chest pain, numbness, seizure); or
  • tremor, restlessness, hallucinations, unusual behavior, or motor tics (muscle twitches).
  • headache or dizziness;
  • sleep problems (insomnia);
  • dry mouth or an unpleasant taste in your mouth;
  • diarrhea, constipation;
  • loss of appetite, weight loss;
  • loss of interest in sex, and impotence
  • mental/mood/behavior changes (e.g., agitation, aggression, mood swings, depression, abnormal thoughts)

These are just a few of the side effects of this prescription drug that is very popular with children in America and all over the world!

Amphetamine is a recreational drug which is colloquially known as speed. (Wikipedia)

Question; Why are doctors giving children speed? What is happening to the world? There are other solutions!



Technology Time-Out

Most of our kids are perpetually plugged in–texting on  their cell phones, playing computer games, watching TV for hours on end. This  constant electronic stimulation not only fragments their attention but also  exposes them to electromagnetic radiation (EMR) at potentially harmful levels.  When a child is sensitive, this exposure agitates his nervous system. Sleep  disturbances, chronic fatigue, headaches, dizziness, memory and attention  problems, and distorted vision are all possible side effects of EMR. Try to  limit how much electromagnetic exposure your child is getting by reducing his  screen time to an hour or less a day.

Diet and Nutrition

Despite multiple studies in the last 20 years suggesting  that diet and food additives can exacerbate hyperactivity, the current medical  stance is that there is no causal link between food and ADHD. In my own  practice, parents who have reduced their child’s intake of sugar, refined foods,  and foods with chemical additives (food dyes, preservatives, MSG, etc.) report  significant improvement in their child’s behavior over four to eight weeks.  These children are also less disruptive and more focused when they eat plenty of  cooked vegetables and whole grains, along with moderate amounts of protein and  organic unrefined oils.

In addition,  50 mg of B-complex vitamins and  100 to 200 mg of fish oils geared for children. These supplements nourish and  stabilize the CNS while improving mood stability, mental focus, and brain  function.

-Herbs that calm, soothe, and nourish the nervous system include lemon balm,  chamomile, hops, passion flower, skullcap, brahmi, valerian, and St. John’s Wort.
