The problem is that ADHD is overdiagnosed and has stigmas surrounding it. The overdiagnosis is caused by a lack of understanding about the disorder and how it affects the human body, resulting in a nonexistent test for the disorder. These stigmas add to the lack of understanding about the disorder because many believe it is not a true disorder that should be studied.Children are most affected by this overdiagnosis because the disorder is most prevalent in children. This overdiagnosis also leads to an overprescription of stimulant medication, which more commonly affects children as well and produces adverse side effects. The only way to fix the problem of overdiagnosis is to create a reliable test for ADHD, which is currently being researched. …show more content…
I want it to be mandatory for behavioral therapy to be the first option doctors’ give patients and their parents and then medication should be the second option. If this is adopted, children that do not have severe ADHD or do not have it at all will not acquire side effects from Ritalin, and children with severe ADHD will learn coping mechanisms to alleviate the disorder. This will eradicate the overpresciption of Ritalin. More research may have to be done in order to accomplish this goal. It will take some time to accomplish this because laws will have to be passed that restrict doctors' ability to prescribe Ritalin. Children will then attend behavioral therapy as initial treatment and if this is not effective, Ritalin will then be introduced to the child in low doses while behavioral therapy is continually undergone. Nothing has been done similar to this concerning ADHD, but laws have been passed to mandate the prescription of certain drugs. In these cases, unsafe amounts of these drugs were prevented from entering the hands of patients and resulted in a lowering of side effect prevalence. Therapy would cost more than a month’s supply of Ritalin by hundreds of dollars, depending on the amount of therapy sessions needed. I believe this should be paid for by health insurance and the government should make it mandatory for all insurance companies to cover the cost, similar to the ABLE
