ADHD nation : children, doctors, big pharma, and the making of an American epidemic by Alan Schwarz( )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 29 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A groundbreaking and definitive account of the widespread misdiagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder--and its serious effects on children, adults, and society. More than 1 in 7 American children are getting diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD)--three times what experts have said is appropriate--making it one of the most mishandled and debated conditions in medicine. The numbers are rising every year. Now doctors and Big Pharma are targeting adults and the rest of the world to get diagnosed with ADHD and take medications that will "transform their lives." In ADHD Nation, Alan Schwarz takes readers behind the scenes to show the roots and rise of this cultural and medical phenomenon: There's the father of ADHD, Dr. Keith Conners, who spends fifty years pioneering the disorder and use of drugs like Ritalin before realizing his role in what he now calls "a national disaster of dangerous proportions"; a troubled young girl and studious, teenaged boy who get entangled in the growing ADHD machine and take medications that cause them serious problems; and a pharmaceutical industry that egregiously overpromotes the disorder and earns billions from the mishandling of children (and now adults). While demonstrating that ADHD is real and can be successfully medicated, Schwarz sounds an alarm and urges America to wake up and address this growing national problem

ADHD nation : the disorder, the drugs, the inside story by Alan Schwarz( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) will soon be the most common chronic condition among children, surpassing asthma. Yet research shows that ADHD can't be that prevalent. ADHD, a problem once thought to affect a small percentage of children, has exploded into one of the most over-diagnosed conditions. Now, in the US doctors and Big Pharma are targeting adults and young people to believe they have ADHD and take medications that will 'transform their lives'. In ADHD Nation, Alan Schwarz takes readers behind the scenes to tell the full story of this billion-dollar industry. There's the father of ADHD, Dr Keith Conners, who spent fifty years promoting the disorder in the US and pills like Ritalin before realising just what he had wrought; a troubled young girl and studious, teenage boy who get entangled in the ADHD machine and are prescribed medications that lead to serious problems; and the pharmaceutical industry that promoted the disorder and continues to earn billions from mishandling the disorder. An investigation of how Big Pharma, medical professionals and the US education system are complicit in the creation, maintenance and continuing expansion of the ADHD industry, this book sounds the alarm for UK readers and demands we wake-up to the problem that we too could face in the future."--Publisher's description
