I have 2 nephews being treated for ADHD, and it has helped them tremendously at home and at school. I am not fan of drugging kids, but in their case, if they had not resorted to medication, both of their kids would like have been placed in alternative school situations due to the severity of their disorders. Every case is unique, and you can't say, even though there are risks, that for certain kids, the risks outweigh the benefits.
