Why do we assume it is the US that is wrong?

Maybe the US is ahead of the mental health curve allowing patients and doctors to come to the right diagnosis and recognizing what medications are right for children and adults with ADHD. There is a lot of anti-drug regulation in Europe that prevents even people with valid diagnoses from getting the drugs they need there.

I don't think it is a very libertarian perspective to cheer on countries that prevent medication from being available because they are worried about the proliferation of illegal drug use. People should be free to decide with their doctors the right course of treatment based on the most modern knowledge and medications available.
