Richard Saul, behavioral neurologist at Castle and Connolly Best Doctor in Chicago, does not believe that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) exists.
Saul explains: “I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can’t live without stimulants is no solution.”
According to a new report , the number of adults taking a pharmacological drug for ADHD has risen to 53% in the young 20-somethings.
Saul explains that ADHD has become “an easy catchall phrase that saves time for doctors.”
In this world “as a population, [we] are more distracted today than ever before” and Saul is concerned that the label ADHD is being tossed around for the profit of the drug companies.
