Good question. Suicide ideation is listed as a known side-effect though. Perhaps it exacerbates these things. Coming off them creates a problem too. I wonder if there has been any long term studies of using such drugs, as well as ritalin, on children or young teens whose brains are still forming? One thing that does need investigation is pharmaceutical firms covering up some things they did know and/or how the FDA approves them. Is there crony connections between the agency and these firms. Who gets money from these firms?
Before you read the “Outside The Lines” report, consider this:
Taping the opposing team’s sideline still isn’t banned; only taping the opposing team from the sideline is illegal.
Also remember this:
Taping the opposing team from the sideline wasn’t banned until 2006, yet the report cites examples as far back as 2000. ~NESN
