sit down. shut up. take your pills.

     "Drug companies spend tens of millions of dollars every year promoting medications such as Adderall, Ritalin, Concerta, and Metadate. But nobody is buying ads to warn parents and doctors about the possible risks. To be sure, those risks are not proven. We don't know for sure yet whether the damage these medications cause in the brains of laboratory animals also occurs in children who take the same medications. Maybe it does. Maybe it doesn't.
      Would you like to volunteer your son for the trial?"
