The makers of Adderall have been ordered to pay over $56m for false claims about it's efficacy. 

 

quote/ For instance, Adderall XR was marketed to “prevent poor academic performance, loss of employment, criminal behavior, traffic accidents and sexually transmitted disease,” according to theTimes. The allegations cover activities by the company between January 2004 and September 2010.

 

Also on its website, Acting Assistant Attorney General for the Justice Department’s Civil Division, Joyce R. Branda, said that “Patients and health care providers must receive accurate information about available prescription drugs so that they can make safe and informed treatment decisions…The Department of Justice will be vigilant to hold accountable pharmaceutical companies that provide misleading information regarding a drug’s safety or efficacy.”

 

 

And about time too!

Lesson learned, slow down taper at lower doses. Taper no more than 10% of CURRENT dose if possible
