Australian Judge Warning on Psych Drugs


ATTENTION Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is the most over-diagnosed condition in the community, according to a Wollongong District Court judge.
Judge Paul Conlon yesterday questioned whether enough was known about the long-term effects of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) drugs like Ritalin, while issuing his judgment for a 20-year-old man convicted of assault and an indecent act.
“I know there are those with the appropriate medical qualifications who are concerned about the effects of these drugs on the mental health of young persons,” he said.
“However I fear they are not nearly vocal enough.”
