ADHD Drugs Skewered in New Documentary
A new independent film titled "Generation RX" shines a critical light on the use of ADHD medications like Ritalin to treat children with attention deficit.

And Miller concentrates a sizable chunk of his film to examining the use of Ritalin to treat children diagnosed with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in America.
