The similarities between street drug abuse and psychotropic prescription drug use are disturbing. Both types are toxic. Both can cause psychosis, damage the brain and other organs, and even cause death. And neither type of mind-altering drugs, legal or illegal, treats disease. It’s important to recognize that the only significant difference between many prescription psychotropic drugs and street drugs such as “speed” and “downers” is that prescription drugs are legal.

What is a Diagnosis of ADHD?

If you have been labeled with inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity that does not mean you have a mental illness. Underlying health conditions such as vitamin deficiencies, anemia, sleep issues, diet, food allergies, candida (yeast) and household toxins might be the cause.

Sleep Apnea

Children with apnea are often misdiagnosed and labeled attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Because they sleep poorly, they cannot focus in the classroom. Sleep is a huge factor when it comes to mental health in children as well as adults.


Between 1979 and 1983, the New York City school system removed the sugar, additives, and preservatives from its school lunch program. This change alone produced a 15 percent increase in performance on standardized tests. School performance in the New York City School System moved from below national average to above national average. This study was well-controlled, and involved 800,000 children. Other reasons for the outcome were carefully ruled out.

Hypoglycemia is related to hostile, aggressive behavior. This type of response is seen in habitually violent and impulsive criminals. An interesting study in 1984 suggested that reactive hypoglycemia was connected with fire-setting behavior.

Sugar, white flour, alcohol, caffeine, and tobacco can contribute to low blood sugar. Medications can also induce hypoglycemia including insulin; Bactrim (an antibiotic); beta-blockers such as Propranolol; Haldol; MAO inhibitors; Quinidine; Quinine; and Sulfonylureas, a drug that stimulates beta cells to produce more insulin.
