Lawrence Diller, M.D.: The United States of Adderall. This S.F. pediatrician explains why drugs for ADHD rule when psychotherapy isn’t reimbursed by insurance companies. He’s not opposed to prescribing child psychiatric meds, but he’s wary of the huge increase in their use and explains why other effective treatment is not employed for child attention and hyperactivity problems. I know Larry Diller and he’s an unusually knowledgeable pediatrician who’s written two good books on this subject. I recommend his work.
