Found this article in this month's Prevention magazine....and thought of you.
ADHD drug danger
About 4 million kids take prescription drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder(ADHD), a number that keeps climbing. Now, two new studies suggest that those drugs aren't as safe as experts thought.
In one study, researchers tracked 1,357 children on Strattera for 6 to 18 weeks. They reported five cases of suicidal thinking, including one suicide attempt, compared to zero cases among the 851 patients taking a placebo. As a result, the FDA directed the manufacturer to put a "black box" warning on the drug-the most serious alert. Experts believe the most worrisome periods are during the first few months of treatment and when the dosage is adjusted.
In other research, an Australian review of 29 studies suggests that stimulants that are prescribed for ADHD, such as Ritalin and Dexedrine, may stunt growth in developing kids who experience nausea as a side effect. In one study of 97 boys, researchers found that those who felt queasy on the meds ended up 2.6 inches shorter, on average, that those who didn't. One possible reason: If appetite is suppressed, the resulting lack of proper nutrition and calories may affect growth.

A reader send me this as a joke.....The Irving paper told the readers that Harper was walking with his wife!
"FOR WHAT I DO IS NOT THE GOOD I WANT TO DO; NO,
THE EVIL I DO NOT WANT TO DO--THIS I KEEP DOING.
WHAT A WRETCHED MAN I AM! WHO WILL RESCUE
ME FROM THIS BODY OF DEATH?"
( ROMANS 7:19 & 24 *NIV )
Those are the words of the Apostle Paul. To remain
sinless was a struggle for him, as well as, the rest of the
Apostle's! For sin has always been a struggle for mankind
ever since Adam and Eve!
Therefore when we slip and sin it is very important to ask
our Heavenly Father to forgive us. For it is written; IF WE
CONFESS OUR SINS, HE IS FAITHFUL AND JUST AND
WILL FORGIVE US OUR SINS AND PURIFY US FROM
ALL UNRIGHTEOUSNESS. (1 JOHN 1:9) Thus we become
cleansed and forgiven from our past sins, and that includes
all of them!
After all it is written; "COME NOW, LET US REASON
TOGETHER," SAYS THE LORD. "THOUGH YOUR SINS
ARE LIKE SCARLET, THEY SHALL BE WHITE AS SNOW;
THOUGH THEY ARE RED AS CRIMSON, THEY SHALL
BE LIKE WOOL." ( ISAIAH 1:18 )
So Charles, just be the very best person that you can be,
and if you slip and sin once in a while, do not think that God
doesn't love you anymore. For no one is perfect, however
once there was one, sinless and blameless, and filled
with love, and they Crucified Him...
