The labels should always be checked.

But what I know about compound pharmacology, its likely it was labeled correctly but the pharm made an error
Likely? But was it? running a story on speculation and a fair amount of it is bad journalism

I'm sure there's a pill for that too. And those expert psychiatrists are often paid by big pharma in the form of promotional payments or to talk up their drugs to other psychiatrists. A colossal conflict of interest exists when your trusted doctor is in bed with drug manufacturers.

I agree with you wholeheartedly!

Years ago my sons school 'suggested' I put him on medication because he was being a ball buster to the teacher. I refused. My son didn't have add or adhd. He could be well behaved and focused when he chose to. He was a ball busting kid who liked to push boundaries. Out of the 4 of them he was the only one who wouldn't tow the line.

Long story short. He graduated, went to college, and aced all his college classes. He's still a ball buster at times but that's his personality.

Very true!
I probably should clarify: It definitley COULD have been "the" cause of death. However, since I don't have access to all the information; I cannot say that it was, definitley, the cause of death.

That being said, since I am not an M.D., even if I did have all the information, I would not be considered qualified to make that call.

I am an RN but in the state in which I have been licensed for 24 years (Colorado), an RN may only "pronounce death" for a hospice patient & is never responsible for determining "cause of death".

There is more to AD/HD then just being hyper. And not all those who have AD/HD are hyper.

Maybe do a little research before claiming boys will be boys.

I can see accidentally doing ten times the rx amount, but one thousand times more? That sounds like pure incompetence to me.

No. I've worked in medicine, but not as a pharmacist.

If you have any insight, I'm all ears ( or all eyes, since we are on a forum )
