Props to Lilly! I hadn't been here in a bit but now see multiple pages that have posts only a few days old. I wonder how many more ADD diagnosis’s there have been since Lilly began their advertisements for ADD, is their any group that tracks such a thing? No wonder their stock is past $70.00

Have you looked at the online ADD test by E Lilly? I had 50 people (non-ADD) take this test and 48 of them tested positive for ADD. This is completely ridiculous. Sure, they made people more aware that ADD can also be a problem for adults, but they also made the problem of overdiagnosis way worse than it already was... Now people who have any of the symptoms are thinking they have ADD and going to their docs and asking to be treated. (Symptoms are supposed to be present before age 7) - Adults who are overly stressed, or have anxiety, depression or similar problems can relate to many of the ADD symptoms so they go and get diagnosed, leaving the real cause of their problems untreated.
48 out of 50? Clearly no one has the chance to escape the dreaded ADD according to the psychiatric community. I'm shakin' in my boots...
