ADHD Medication

ADHD medications are the cause for so much concern facing parents of ADHD children today. In order to avoid Ritalin's side effects, Dr. Michael Papa has developed a special food supplement called “First Choice™” which is offered through Alternative First, Inc. and is available on this website as an ADHD medication alternative. Unlike other ADHD medications, First Choice™ food supplement has been designed to help maintain a person's good health, both mentally and physically without the Ritalin side-effects so common to the standard treatment methods. First Choice is also very effective for Hyperactive Disorder without the risk of Ritalin side effects.

Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) have become pervasive in our society manifesting from mild conditions to severe disabilities. These health conditions affect 5-15% or more of all school children.1 The general health of our children and all levels of our society are at stake. The personal, societal, and economic costs of a child’s mental dysfunction cannot be calculated, but it is safe to say that everyone is effected directly or indirectly by ADD/ADHD children and everyone must take action now to protect our children’s health which represents our future.

Many of our health care providers treat ADD/ADHD children with drug therapies, psychological and psychiatric therapies, stress reduction therapies, and in some extreme cases confinement, hospitalization, and institutionalization, which may end in the banishment of the child from normal society. There are a growing number of health professionals who recognize the relationship of ADD/ADHD symptoms to diet, environmental pollution, daily activities, and nutritional deficiencies. Now there is another and a superior alternative to traditional ADHD medication.

Ritalin Side Effects

 Among the well Ritalin side effects, is the fact that Ritalin can decrease blood flow to the brain, and routinely causes other gross malfunctions in the developing brain of the child, according to some experts. Some of these side effects have been ignored by Ritalin advocates.

Are America’s children being exposed to a "prescription epidemic" of dangerous, addictive stimulant drugs such as Ritalin and Adderall?


The Solution

Some researches say that Ritalin does not correct biochemical imbalances and may infact, cause them. There is some evidence that it can cause permanent damage to a child’s brain and its function.

Is it possible that Pediatricians, parents, and teachers are not aware of these hazards because a large body of research demonstrating the ill effects of this drug has been ignored and suppressed in order to encourage the sale of the drug?

According to one expert, damaging Ritalin side effects may include:

Decreased blood flow to the brain, an effect recently shown to be caused by cocaine where it is associated with impaired thinking ability and memory loss.

Disruption of growth hormone, leading to suppression of growth in the body and brain of the child

Permanent neurological tics, including Tourette’s Syndrome

Addiction and abuse, including withdrawal reactions on a daily basis

Psychosis (mania), depression, insomnia, agitation, and social withdrawal

Possible shrinkage (atrophy) or other permanent physical abnormalities in the brain

Worsening of the very symptoms the drug is supposed to improve including hyperactivity and inattention

Decreased ability to learn

Currently, Ritalin and other stimulants are prescribed to several million U.S. children in the hope of improving their inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, These drugs "work" by producing robotic or zombie-like behavior in children. This enforced docility and obedience can produce a few weeks of subdued behavior but has no positive effect on academic achievement and no positive long-term effects at all. Contrary to claims by drug advocates, giving Ritalin to a child does not help to prevent future problems such as school failure or delinquency.

Ritalin’s lack of effectiveness has been proven by hundreds of studies but has not been revealed to doctors, teachers or parents. Many experts feel that parents and teachers and even doctors have been badly misled by drug company marketing practices. They have not been informed of Ritalin's dangerous side effects. Have the large drug companies targeted children as a huge market likely to boost profits?

Are mind-altering drugs ever an appropriate approach to helping our children? Instead, let's learn to identify and meet the individual needs of the children in our care.

Most children receiving Ritalin have been identified for treatment by teachers as having Attention Deficit Disorder or Hyperactive Disorder who have been misled by drug company and government promotional campaigns for Ritalin and other stimulants as ADHD medication.

The motto of every parent or teacher who is tempted to resort to Ritalin should be, "Educate don’t medicate."

The stimulant drugs include Ritalin (methylphenidate), Concerta, Dexedrine and Dextrostat (dextroamphetamine or d-amphetamine), Adderall (D-amphetamine and amphetamine mixture), Desoxyn and Gradumet (methamphetamine), and Cylert (pemoline).

Why expose ADHD children to the possibility of long-term damage from if safe, natural alternatives are available to avoid Ritalin side effects?
