Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) is a serious disorder that causes: Short attention span, disorganization, distractibility, poor follow-through, reduction of resistance to disease, and even reduced life span. If untreated, secondary effects of ADD include Depression and Anxiety.
It is a brain disorder described as “low-arousal.” What that means is that hyperactive children are not very awake or aware of what is going on around them, so they move around a lot to wake up. Their brain is operating too slowly. A person can be aware of surroundings, more in control, more able to think, reason, and communicate and live with happier relationships if their brain can wake up. That is why Ritalin and other stimulants seem to help a person with this disorder.
Drugs can be harmful and sometimes even dangerous with only temporary improvement.
