A woman in rabbi school came to my office. She said, “I do not know what life is like without drugs. I have been taking a stimulant since I was a child. Can you help me?”
Can you imagine what your life would be like if you spent 20 years on a stimulant? Can you image what damage the drug for ADHD has done to your heart, nervous system and body? Imagine taking a drug for ADHD for years.
Drugs of any nature are dangerous for children, especially stimulants. Whether you are 7 or 70 there is no doubt about the damage a stimulant can do to your heart.
