Federal health officials say the number of children in the U.S. undergoing treatment for attention deficit disorders remain high.

FOX's Eben Brown reports:

At least six million doctor visits were made for children with ADHD, or attention deficit and hyperactivity disorder, according to the National Center for Health Statistics.

Those figures are from the years 25 and 23, and were centered on children and teens from ages four through 17, and boys outnumbered girls more than two-to-one.

Further, eight of 10 kids being evaluated for ADHD were prescribed drugs like Ritalin and Adderall, and a third of these children were also diagnosed with additional mental health disorders.
