It is a disorder, but I do believe that it is way over-diagnosed.

I suggest you do more reading on it before saying stuff like "it's not even a disorder".

To start:
http://add.about.com/od/adhdthebasics/a/myths-adhd.htm
http://add.about.com/od/adhdthebasic...HD-is-Real.htm

And a blog that gives an insightful view into the world of someone with ADHD (I can strongly relate to many of his posts):
http://thesplinteredmind.blogspot.com
I don't know how you guys can stretch this candy/sugar thing, but that was just my diagnoses when I was a child, and my doctor didn't even diagnose me with ADHD. Everyone's trigger is different, it doesn't have to be candy.

Well, all I can say is, have fun pumping your kids full of drugs during their most critical developmental stages. You don't even know what are in those drugs and what kind of long term side effects it will have on your child.

What this all comes down to is if you buy what the doctor is trying to sell you, he is going to make his argument very convincing because once you start he'll have a repeat customer for a very long time.

Remember Ritalin? Present day ADHD drugs are probably much milder versions but the question still remains what are the long term side effects of this drug? No one knows for sure.

Do you have kids? I'm just curious what experience you have with this scenario to make these statements....

I have 2 kids that if it wasn't for them taking meds for their ADD/ADHD, they wouldn't even be able to come close to making decent grades in school. Both were doing terrible in school before being diagnosed and now one is an honor roll student and the other is almost there.

So from your point of view, since I'm "buying what the doctor is selling", I should stop and let my kids fail?

You really have no clue so unless you have a medical degree, you shouldn't be even trying to give anyone medical advice. I'm pretty confident you don't have kids either, so that's a double whammy if you don't.....I'm curious to know what experience you have with this so please enlighten me on it so I know whether I need to take your advice and let my kids fail or continue "buying what the doctor is selling".....

I don't have a trigger, I'm naturally hyperactive (hence attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). I was on Ritalin for around 3 months, and while it calmed me down, I experienced some side effects after a while so I stopped taking it. I did not have any addiction issues, and had zero troubles stopping it cold-turkey. I don't understand what you're trying to get at.

Do you have ADHD? Do you know anyone who does?

Ummm Adderall is WAY stronger... In fact it's a cocktail of drugs, not just a single amphetamine. Hell, they have legally prescribed methyl-methamphetamine and still do. For those who don't know it's real name that's meth, THE meth.

Ritalin is still used too, in fact a lot of the "old" drugs are still used. There are a bunch of them, because not everybody responds to the drugs the same. Any who, what do I know?

I laugh at the crysis comments. Not because it's still funny but because of the idiocy of it. Your brain can re-construct memories on the fly, or even better create entire conscious environments that you interact with... How do you even think of it running a game that has sub-par detail when compared to your hands? Your face? Your dreams? Ironically it does this and keeps you alive, sometimes I think that is a shame.
