ADHD Medications Truth About Heart Failure & Sudden Cardiac Death

By Brad On April 26, 2011 No Comments

I made this video as a response to a very misleading video on youtube. The video was filled with a lot of scare-tactics and flat out lies about a particular study by the FDA about children dying from taking ADHD stimulant medications.

I am not making light of the deaths of anyone. It’s sad when anyone dies, and because of that, people want to find something or someone to blame.

Because of their anger and grief, they sometimes jump to unfounded conclusions. This video is about clearing up those unfounded conclusions.

Difference Between ADD And ADHD

By Brad On April 8, 2011 No Comments

The short answer to the question of “what is the difference between ADD and ADHD?“, is that officially the term “ADD” no longer exists! It was abandoned by the medical community in 1994 when the term “AD/HD” was adopted.

So is there a difference between ADD and ADHD?

According to the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders version 4 (DSM-IV) put out by the American Psychiatric Association in 1994, the official name of the disorder is “Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder”, or AD/HD, although many people, and even some professionals, still incorrectly call it ADD or A.D.D. (the name given in 1980 but abandoned in 1994).

(For simplicity, it is often commonly written as “ADHD” instead of “AD/HD”.)

The disorder’s name was changed in 1994 as a result of scientific research and advances in our knowledge of what ADHD really is and is not. There is now strong evidence to support the position that AD/HD is

ADHD Action Guide

An ADHD action guide?
That’s what The Attention Handbook is!

There’s so much confusing information about ADHD, and frankly, a lot (if not most) of what you’ll find on the internet about ADHD is just BS. People have all sorts of opinions about ADHD and from what I’ve seen, most of them are just uninformed people running off at the mouth about things they simply do not understand!

That’s one reason I decided to create an ADHD action guide–to tell people THE TRUTH about what ADHD really is, how it really affects people, and what really works for treatment.
