ADHD drug may drive users to suicide.

Eli Lilly's ADHD medication Strattera may provoke suicidal impulses in people who take the drug. Clinical trials with the drug showed five cases of suicidal ideation (thinking about suicide) and one attempted suicide out of 1,357 participants. Strattera was initially hailed as the first non-stimulant ADHD treatment. (Bloomberg)

I suppose kids will have to go back to doing Ritalin and crystal meth now.
