With all due respect, you should look at the Stratera information provided with the product. It states information shown in tests Lilly (the chemical manufacturer) conducted. See for yourself that many if the stated results are often not too far away from the "placebo" numbers.

If other countries watch our TV ads, they would see what a bunch of hypochondriacs we are!

My wife takes pills for her diabetes, and yes, they seem to work. But this ADHD nonsense started in the 1980s when teachers and parents wanted to make naturally-feisty kids growing up, calm down. Just make 'em shut up and sit down, 'cause the parents wpn't bother to discipine them, and the teachers cannot by law. And there were no other new diseases to treat.

My son was diagnosed with ADHD and drugs greatly affected him; at one point, the prescribed chemicals turned his face a bit yellow, and he developed stomach problems. I immediately stopped the chemical invasion, and he grew up from an 8-yaer-old with ADHD to a mature, smart, working young man. Just amazing!

I have ADHD and, being out of denial, recognize when my symptoms flare up. It is at that point when I need to concentrate and deal with them.. and I do so without the use of drugs.

My parents survuved the depression. Our generation is the finest crop of hypochondriacs and whiners so far.. and I admit to being just as bad some times.

For all the medications and so-called advances in science and technology, we ought to be living to the age of 100, regularly! My own physician - a friend of mine - still comes down with common colds. Other problems as well. How come with all our brilliant scientists and drug manufacturers?

Yes, some drugs work for many of us. but not all of us. We are the guinea pigs. People who do not live in inside the Land of Oz realize tat as long as the cost of lawsuits is less than the net profits of a company, then that company considers its products to be successful.

Let's not forget the highly-paid lobbyists those companies use to push their products onto the market as well.

The costs of development are part of the game. Any business has costs of developing an expansion. But the drug companies use that excuse to charge unprecedented amounts of money to patients or their insurance companies..... and in America, we tolerate that.

Ask your doctor how many gorgeous-looking sales reps keep pressing the doctor to recommend their products...

That, my friend, is reality. But I am very glad you pereceive that Stratera is working for you. All I suffered were negative side-effects.
