Abusing ADD/ADHD Drugs for Weight Loss?
How to Slim Down Safely
With prescriptions for common ADD/ADHD drugs at an all-time high, it makes us wonder... are some of these drugs being misused? Unfortunately, the answer is yes. Although the Food and Drug Administration has not approved ADD/ADHD drugs for weight loss, it's legal and common for doctors to prescribe medications "off label." In addition, about a quarter of primary and secondary school students have been asked by their peers for their medication-which means many are cutting out the doctor's referral altogether.

However, as these stimulant drugs have not been studied for weight loss, their safety, benefits and efficacy for this purpose are both medically and ethically questionable. While some people claim to receive appetite-suppressant effects when using, health risks are abound with these drugs, so it is important to weigh the negative and positives associated with them-and consider them only as a last resort for their original intended purpose.
The FDA has issued warnings that patients starting prescription ADD/ADHD medicines with pre-existing heart problems have suffered sudden death, and some develop psychiatric problems, including mood swings, hallucinogenic effects such as hearing voices, as well as other emotional disturbances.
As there is no official medical test to diagnose ADD/ADHD precisely, considering natural remedies to address the symptoms that most interfere with daily functioning is the best approach. In addition, if looking for weight management solutions, herbal and homeopathic remedies can help adults and children to achieve and maintain healthy weight goals without the use of artificial stimulants, ephedra, or dangerous side effects.
In addition, many people forget to consider a holistic approach to health, which greatly impacts all weight loss efforts. As eating healthily can help to provide the nutritional needs of your body that allow optimal fat burning and digestion, the majority of people are still deficient in the essential vitamins, minerals, and other nutritional substances required not only for systemic health (which can affect efficient metabolism).
As the systems of the body are interrelated, proper functioning and optimal health occurs when they are in balance and harmony. Therefore, if one system is out of balance, one problem can lead to dysfunction or imbalances in other areas systems.
While most of us know that important organs like the liver, stomach and intestines are involved in digestion and that metabolism is closely linked to thyroid and pituitary functioning, many people do not realize that metabolism takes place in every cell in the body-- every single cell has an important part to play.
Therefore, it is important to consider building lasting, long-term weight management goals, rather than opting for dangerous quick-fix options like prescription pills. By considering all disturbances in these delicate systems and opting for a holistic approach to caring for your body, you not only can expect to see results regarding weight loss, but also for maintaining overall wellness.

"I started using Thyroid Assist™ on the 30th August 2006. For the first time since 2004 I've felt healthy enough to exercise - and I feel as though a switch has been flipped. I now feel that my body fat has decreased... I'm so thrilled! In the past, I had no willpower and my body fat percentage never moved. But now for the first time in 2 years, I can proudly say that with my changed lifestyle my body fat percentage has come down!!!! What an awesome product, also what an awesome company to deal with. The staff is professional, friendly and extremely helpful. Thanks so much." - Jo
