Glad your off the olanzapine. Some of these mh drugs are evil
I’ve a close family member on rispiridone and sertraline and wish we could get him off.

AOI Even in the dark nights of the Winter I'd be over the park playing football at the weekends

In the summer we "Played out" every night and went and "Knocked" for our mates to see if they were playing out as well

Made up bollocks. A catch-all title that encompasses all sorts of fairly normal human traits in children.
The fact that there was no such thing when I was a kid 50 years ago says it all. But kids then who had excess energy just went out and played. And those who couldn’t concentrate just got punished.
Simpler times then.

Obviously, parents love their kids and want the best for them.

Having taken anti -psychotic meds Olanzapine to be exact during my episode with. Bad Aids. I would think very carefully and get a second or third option before I put my kids on anything that changes their brain chemistry.

The easy way out for the Doctors is to prescribe meds and they are doing you no favours

Good points well put.

Mother of a kid in my daughter's class wore it as a badge of honour.

Poor kid was doomed from birth.

Re: adhd
the dex is only used if Ritalin (Methylphenidate) has been tried and doesn´t work properly.

I wouldn´t give these drugs to my kids though. Let them wait until 18 at least imo

Both stubbo and gbh make good points. In my grandsonsn's case he had a very good diet with as little sugary drinks, E numbers and colours. At nineteen he still follows this diet, though they call it clean eating today.

"Maybe people didn't pump their kids full of sugar 30/40/50yrs ago."

*remembers sugar sandwiches*

Try 60/70 years ago.

Re: adhd
Mu understanding is that there is a genuine condition, but also that not infrequently there are cases where those proposed to have said condition are products of their home environment (lack of discipline/structure/routine, disrupted and unstable homelife etc) .

The trouble with behavioral conditions is the root cause isn't always identified (especially with some of those kids marked on the "spectrum") where some parents are looking to have their kid classified to gain assistance, and an excuse for the way things have panned out, without first looking to see if what they're doing at home could have any influence (kids that have been marked as having behavioural conditions who don't know if they're coming or going, they're moved between parents, grandparents, different houses, etc etc week to week, left to their own devices and the way they are is a means to gain attention or focus etc).

It's a tricky subject for sure.

Re: adhd
It’s likely that it did Sidney, but people just suffered their whole lives instead of being given treatment to help them.

In the same way that ptsd didn’t exist after the Second World War yet thousands of veterans turned to drink and isolated themselves from their families and society
