I wasnt diagnosed with ADD until I was in college and was placed on medication. I've been trying to research different treatments and get more information on the medications available or on non-prescriptive treatments. After searching through the library stacks for about 2 semesters, I finally came upon this book. This has been the most informative book out there and the only book that doesnt show a bias to different treatments. It presents both sides fairly and gives tips on how to treat effectively using either treatment.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

After months of searching for information on the subject of Ritalin, I found this book. Beyond Ritalin is the only book I've found that presents the facts of Ritalin and not the myths. Someone very dear in my life has struggled with the stigmatism of having Attention Deficit Disorder his whole life. Many people look badly upon him for taking Ritalin, but as the book points out you have to find what works for you. This book helped us sort through all the stories, you hear from both sides of the issue and for once lets the reader decide for themselves. I recommend this book to anyone who has ADD or loves someone with ADD. It will give you the facts and help you make an educated decision of your course of treatment for ADD.Was this review helpful?
