Sticky on supplements for the treatment of ADHD, Scientific Evidence/Research

[MODERATOR NOTE: This post was moved from this thread to the Forum Feedback section.]

This thread is stickied because McTavish23 is one of the very first members of this forum.

The OP's post is blatantly wrong. It also goes against the basic fundamentals of scientific method. I would like to think that scientific method, logic, and facts, would be relevant to any educated and intelligent person.

Things do not just "not work" based on a perceived lack of clinical evidence.

Furthermore, it is nearly 2017. We know more now. We have studies. We have scientific information now which is Not getting stickied on this forum which is considerably more scientific and fact based than the OP's post.

What's worse, is the assertion that some of our pharmaceutical solutions are "proven", despite lack of any meaningful Longitudinal Study. In the 90's, it was understandable. By now, though, with the amount of money that has been made on them, it would be Really nice to see a study more than 3 years in length that shows Some kind of benefit to these drugs. Because the limited clinical information that we do have, either doesn't show any, or shows the opposite. That is the true state of things right now. And the pharmaceutical industry has not even Attempted to prove otherwise.

The moderation of this forum towards pharmaceutical solutions is at least, becoming outdated, and at worst, bringing into question the motivations behind the forum.

Hoping to see a more balanced approach soon.
