ADHD Medicine’s Value ver Time
?And James Swanson another MTA co-author and a psychologist at the University of California at Irvine said:?If you want something for tomorrow medication is the best but if you want something three years from now it does not matter? he said. ?If you take medication long-term beyond three years I don?t think there is any evidence that medication is better than no medication. ?William Pelham who seems to have done an about-face in regard to his original findings now says that the primary purpose of ADHD medicine is to give parents an opportunity to get their child behavioral counseling. A yet-to-be published study Pelham added found that 95 percent of parents who were told by clinicians to first try behavioral interventions for ADHD followed through on that advice. When parents were given a prescription for a drug and then told to enroll their children in behavioral intervention programs 75 percent did not seek out the behavioral approaches. bviously that doesn’t bode well for the majority of children diagnosed with the disorder given the short-term nature of drug therapy. Two reason spring to mind that might explain the drop-off in parental follow-through.
Questions About the Prostate Test
New York Times
In the National Cancer Institute study all of the patients with a diagnosis of prostate cancer had had their disease for less than 10 years some for much less. Those of us who regularly treat prostate cancer are well aware of its natural slow growth and understand that early detection and treatment are directed at extending life beyond the initial 10 years. Many of us choose not to screen for or even treat prostate cancer unless we feel that an individual’s life expectancy is greater than those 10 years. This study will not be meaningful until these data are allowed to mature.
