ATTENTION drugs Adderall Vyvanse Ritalin Beware Brain Tumors May Masquerade as ADHD Symptoms

August 7 2016 update read here about how teacher interaction is better than ADHD drugs.

New study: #rare #brain #tumors removed= 3 of 9 kids ADHD symptom free! A new study, https://www.nih.gov/news-events/news-releases/rare-cancers-may-masquerade-adhd-children-nih-researchers-suggest, reported that 21% of the 43 children studied with two types of brain tumors were already previously diagnosed as ADHD. Almost half of those children were (needlessly) on ADHD meds which contain amphetamine, dextroamphetamine or methylphenidate/Ritalin.

Years ago I had my son BTEX tested since I wanted a blood/urine BTEX baseline because a drill site was to be near our home by the ATT Stadium in Arlington (gasland) Texass. I’ll never forget the day his pediatrician called to say my son needed to be retested when he tested high for vanillylmandelic acid (VMA) which are catecholamines (an end-stage metabolite of epinephrine, and norepinephrine). 

Catecholamines,  act as neuromodulators in the central nervous system and as hormones in the blood circulation.  Tumors, Pheochromocytomas and paragangliomassecrete catecholamines. With my son having two “abnormally high” VMA test results, I took him to an endocrinologist who concluded he was fine. However as a mom I still suspect something is going on even as the years have passed.

Recently as a Baxter stock owner, I had to decided if I wanted to participate in a stock swap offering for Baxalta stock which is being merged to become Shire for which a popular drug they own is Vyvanse. This drug, which is said to be less addicting than Adderall, is another ADHD drug choice. A complaint of Vyvanse is that it was fast tracked without the years of trials because it was the only known drug for treating life threatening binge eating.

This new report of most children NOT needing ADHD drugs IF they have brain tumors has me off again looking to be sure my son is “OK” (brain tumors can make the blood pressure high, trigger anxiety attacks, sweating, etc …).

As a potential stock owner in Vyvanse I chose to hang on to my Baxter stock instead of buying into stock for an amphetamine drug that may be easy to prescribe if you fake being a binge eater. I now have a better understanding about pharmaceutical  “focus” drugs that are being abused in colleges as a “study-buddy high”. 

If YOU, your fetus, or your children (live in the shale and) have been exposed to endocrine disruptors AND if your kid is diagnosed as ADHD…..please have the doctor check the catecholamine levels…it may be an operable, nonmalignant brain tumor.

And so the populations have yet another reason to NOT take a pill.

Likewise we don’t want fracking messing up our endocrine systems living by urban drilling…..we have enough bombardments to contend with as it is.

Thank you for reading

About Kim Triolo Feil

Since TX Statute 253.005 forbids drilling in heavily settled municipalities, I unsuccessfully ran for City Council Seat to try to enforce this. Since Urban Drilling, our drinking water has almost tripled for TTHM's. Before moving to Arlington in 1990, I lived in Norco’s “cancer alley”, a refinery town. It was only after Urban Drilling in Arlington did I start having health effects. After our drill site was established closest to my home, the chronic nosebleeds started. I know there are more canaries here in Arlington having reactions to our industrialized airshed (we have 55-60 padsites of gas wells). Come forward and report to me those having health issues especially if you live to the north/northwest of a drill site so I can map your health effects on this blog.
