Have ADHD? Pay Attention to this:

“It is primarily the (drug company’s) responsibility to monitor the safe use of their products,” Health Canada told the Star.

Dr. Derryck Smith, an ADHD specialist in B.C., says monitoring side effects is the government’s job. “That’s why we have Health Canada,” he said. “There’s no point in making the reports if (the regulator is) not going to be monitoring.”

What's the message here?  It's that people suffering from ADHD, their families and the dedicated front line service providers doing their best to assist them are on their own.

When you have people killing themselves, that's just not damned good enough.
