“Attention-deficit drugs increase concentration in the short term, which is why they work so well for college students cramming for exams. But when given to children over long periods of time, they neither improve school achievement nor reduce behavior problems. The drugs can also have serious side effects... Many parents who take their children off the drugs find that behavior worsens, which most likely confirms their belief that the drugs work. But the behavior worsens because the children's bodies have become adapted [because the drugs are habit-forming] to the drug. Adults may have similar reactions if they suddenly cut back on coffee, or stop smoking.”
I was also diagnosed with MS Rheumetoid arthritis triennial neuralgia carpal tunnel hypothyroidism among alot of other things and found that taking doctors best Curcumin c3 500mg one time daily has helped me with all of my symptoms but seems to have made me develop diarrhea but that is ok if I can walk open doors cook and take care of my family. I am almost totally symptom free but wonder if I need to stop taking it or not. I read you should take it for two weeks but its hard not to take it because I have to use my extremities all the time. I have no other help so I hope it’s ok to take long term.
