My 4 yr old niece is being prescribed ADHD medication

And im fricking furious.

How is prescribing a 4 year old amphetamine considered responsible medical practice? I'm tempted to beat my brother's arse for even allowing it but at the end of the day it's not my decision.

What would your reaction be?

I was a little bit older than that when they put me on the Ritalin. Not cool.

If I were him I would wait it out considering her brain is still developing and try other methods to cure whatever they feel is the issue. Maybe she's just really bored.

A kid in kindergarten was on it last year. Broke my freaking heart. Very active kid before. Always getting in trouble. Gets Meds halfway through the year and turned into a zombie. Just sat in her desk staring at nothing. No personality at all. Sleepwalking almost. I'd try everything under the sun before I put my kid on Meds.

Really stupid that someone would allow their 4-year-old to be put on amphetamines. I was diagnosed ADHD when I was 5 and my parents refused to consider medication until I was in college.

At four they are expected to sit still 4 minutes. That's it!

Haha, your brother's pussy-whipped or retarded.

But, prayers for your niece. Sucks to have dumb parents (maybe just one parent).

Yeah, maybe even try some herbal treatments first, or pay attention to what they feed her in the mornings. Maybe wake her up earlier and let her run around outside. There's plenty of options available before sticking her on amphetamines. Oh and I take an ADD medication myself...

My son is on it.

He is 10. I was dead against it. However his grades and then his confidence did a 180.

He went from C's and D's and F's. Now all A'sand B's


Has she been evaluated?

If you care about that child, do not let it happen.

The mom bears the most fault in my opinion although my brother is just as guilty for not standing up. I just found out and I'm completely beside myself. No one else understands my objection..... At this rate I probably won't be invited to thanksgiving......

I just can't sit idle and let this go on without objection

I would tell them to kiss my arse and not give it to her. Too young imo.
