What are everyone's thoughts on the "revalation" that the most-commonly prescribed drugs for ADD/ADHD should carry the black box label due to 25 or so deaths attributed to these drugs?You know, I really don't care. They are talking 25 deaths in about as many years. I think the statistic they used is one death per million users. If there weren't so many people on the drug (some that probably shouldn't) it wouldn't be that big a deal. I personally think the FDA overreacts a whole lot on this stuff just because of the lawsuit culture we live in. People are taking this drug to change their natural chemistry. Something wrong is bound to happen in a few of those people. The current culture of one death is too many when it comes to prescription drugs is just naive. If it hadn't been approved prior to the standards in place now, aspirin would probably never clear because use over a few days in a row can cause more damage than years of any prescribed drug.Agent - getting off the soapbox
