In our opinion we have seen Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas abuse his position as a doctor for nothing, but the greed of money, ruining lives, families, children, and marriages, with his five minute diagnostic technique, so he can basically make the people who come to him prescription drug addicts, so they keep coming back for these drugs over and over again, so he can collect the office visit fees over and over again need we say about all the money he is collecting from the drug companies to push as much drug product as he can. They even have a code if you do not buy into their Diagnostic and Statistical Manual (DMS) of voted upon “conditions” or “labels”, it is called “V15.81 Noncompliance with treatment” it means you are mentally ill if you do not go for their treatment which always means Psychotropic drugs, you must admit they covered everything to get you on Psychotropic drugs .

Psychotropic drugs is a story of big money. These drugs fuel a $330-billion psychiatric industry, without a single cure — and now kill an estimated 36,000 people every year, with the death toll still rising.
This is part one of a riveting 10-part documentary containing more than 175 interviews with lawyers, mental health experts, the families of victims and the survivors themselves.
In our opinion we have collected proof if this drug pushing in the form of the article below, Adderall is the favorite drug Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas uses for ADD patients, and this is many times without proper diagnostic methods, relying on Sharon D Walters RN, CNS, PMHNP, Bedford, Texas his nurse practioner’s therapist friend Melody A Hubnik, PHD, LPC, LMFT, Colleyville, Texas diagnostic, which misuses the CAARS-Self Report test for diagnostic which she improperly analysis which we have discovered to put patients of Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas on Adderall on her word alone, does Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, or Sharon D Walters RN, CNS, PMHNP, Bedford, Texas question this analysis that is improperly done no they just server up the drug Adderall to get the person on this a category 2 narcotic drug which puts it in the same category as cocaine, opium and morphine, which has caused a reported 20 deaths by heart attack and 12 strokes, from children to adults. It has been our experience that Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, or Sharon D Walters RN, CNS, PMHNP, Bedford, Texas when prescribing this deadly drug does not make the patients aware of the dangers of this drug or how Adderall could lead to addiction of other drugs such as cocaine, when another non-narcotic drug Strattera is available no Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas and Sharon D Walters RN, CNS, PMHNP, Bedford, Texas keeps prescribing Adderall, because it is more addictive and keeps the patients coming back for more, no matter how dangerous the drug is or how it endangers the lives of the person it is prescribe to. Adderall has been referred to as a “cash cow” for the manufacturer and in our opinion for Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas once he gets you addicted to it, and he does not tell you also how hard it is to get off this drug once you are on it, all he does is throw a prescription script at you next patient, for another five minute appointment and more office visit fees for Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas , you are never told a regular visit with another doctor, will spend an hour with you to analyze your condition properly. A neurologist Dr. Baugham, who has stated that the exponential increase in ADHD over the past decade is nothing but pure fraud—and it is mostly happening in the US, now what does this tell you about Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas.
In our opinion we need to expose also Melody A Hubnik, PHD, LPC, LMFT, Colleyville, Texas the therapist friend who herself is on Adderall, a category 2 narcotic drug which puts it in the same category as cocaine, opium and morphine, we question why with Strattera a non-narcotic drug is available we wonder why Melody A Hubnik, PHD, LPC, LMFT, Colleyville, Texas, has not gotten off a category 2 narcotic drug, or does she just like the drug buzz she gets , and is addicted to Adderall. In our experience she has personal issues she brings into her practice, which does not make her personality stable, and since the friend relationship between Sharon D Walters RN, CNS, PMHNP, Bedford, Texas and Melody A Hubnik, PHD, LPC, LMFT, Colleyville, Texas, is both a conflict of interest and unethical relationship recommending patients to one another, we ask in our opinion, do you really want to trust your life to any of these people. One patient we have learned was prescribed multiple drugs by Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas, and after going to another doctor was taken off them, not needing them at all. As the first patient says “You don’t have to be a good doctor in order to be a successful doctor. Cathal is proof of that. ” enough said:

Attorney Slams the Makers of Adderall
Birmingham, AL: When attorney Andy Hollis of Hollis, Wright, and Couch, P.C., talks about Adderall, he gets angry. Hollis knows how much damage and anguish this drug has caused; both as a street drug favored by college students, and as prescription for children over the age of three and adults with ADHD—many of whom have suffered respiratory and heart problems, toxic shock, a host of psychotic problems, and even death.
“Many psychologists consider Adderall as a gateway drug, leading to addiction of other drugs such as cocaine, and it is increasingly even more popular,” says Hollis. “For instance, a recent study found that as many as 20 percent of college students use it to study and cram for exams. Many adults consider it a smart drug to replace cocaine but that is not the case.” Adderall is a category 2 drug, which puts it in the same category as cocaine, opium and morphine. In 1996, it was approved for ADHD, and as Hollis points out, it has a high potential for abuse.
Hollis has a litany of facts and statistics arguing the case against Adderall, which is basically a strong stimulant drug prescribed to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).
“In 2004 the manufacturer [Shire Pharmaceuticals] reported 20 deaths by heart attack and 12 strokes, from children to adults,” says Hollis, “and those deaths and strokes occurred mainly in those individuals using Adderall in a prescribed manner. Hollis says those statistics were voluntarily provided by Shire to the FDA and reported on MedWatch back in 2004. That is when Health Canada removed the drug from the market but the FDA didn’t do anything until 2006. Why hasn’t the FDA posted any data since 2006? “It has been proven that only 1 percent of adverse occurrences related to any drug have been reported to the FDA, and most of these adverse reports come from the manufacturer of the drug, so what you have is a situation where the wolf is guarding the henhouse; and the warning for the drug only attributes health problems if it is misused,” explains Hollis. “Extrapolate that data and you have a big problem with a drug like Adderall.”
(Since 2006, Lawyers and Settlements has been reporting on the dangers of Adderall, specifically how it has become a street drug. Given that fact, and combined with millions of dollars in prescriptions for ADHD in children, Adderall has been referred to as a “cash cow” for the manufacturer.)
To make Adderall even more insidious, Hollis refers to neurologist Dr. Baugham, who has stated that the exponential increase in ADHD over the past decade is nothing but pure fraud—and it is mostly happening in the US. Of course this is great news for the drug makers, but not so for children, some of whom have had strokes— yes, children can have strokes and heart attacks.
How did Adderall become so mainstream? “According to the Association of Psychiatrists, just about half the population in the US has ADHD symptoms,” says Hollis. “These symptoms were written in such a manner that half the people in the US would have ADHD.” According to Dr. Baugham, in 1987 there were 14 symptoms attributed to ADHD, and if a child had eight or more of those symptoms, they were diagnosed with ADHD:
- often fidgets or squirms
- trouble staying in one’s seat
- can’t wait one’s turn
- blurts out answers
- trouble following instructions
- can’t sustain attention
- shifts from one activity to another
- doesn’t play quietly
- talks excessively
- can’t listen
- loses things
- does dangerous things, thrill seeking and so on.
Dr. Baugham attributes the Association of Psychiatrists’ report (1987) outlining the symptoms or criteria of ADHD as a marketing scheme so that the makers of Adderall and similar drugs such as Ritalin could make more profits.
“This drug is over-prescribed by doctors for a condition that they don’t fully understand,” says Hollis. “For example, if someone is bipolar and they take Adderall in the manic stage of the condition, they could go into psychosis and not know what they are doing—and that could be very dangerous. As well, Adderall is causing strokes in the customary manner as prescribed, in other words, in people not abusing the drug.

ADDERALL (a Schedule II controlled substance) is the new name for a Dextroamphetamine/Amphetamine composite medication that has been around for more than 30 years. This formula was also used in a medication known as Obetrol, made in the past by Rexar and developed for weight loss. As a medication for ADHD, Adderall was approved for unrestricted use for treatment of ADHD by the FDA in March 1996.
20 Deaths Linked to Adderall XR
as reported by Associated Press and Bloomberg News on February 10, 2005
Adderall XR, a widely used drug for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, was pulled off the market in Canada after regulators linked the drug to 20 sudden deaths and 12 strokes. Fourteen of the deaths and two of the 12 strokes were in children.
The adverse reactions were not associated with overdose, misuse or abuse of Adderall XR, Canadian regulators said.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration issued a public health advisory to alert providers to the withdrawal. But the agency also said it had evaluated the same reports as Canadian regulators and did not think the data warranted pulling the drug from the U.S. market.
Adderall XR Side Effects and Warnings
Updated August 16, 2008
Schedule II Substance
FDA “Black Box” Warning Label
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires the following “black box” warning on all amphetamines, including Adderall and Adderall XR, which means that medical studies indicate these drugs carry a significant risk of serious, or even life-threatening, adverse effects.
AMPHETAMINES HAVE A HIGH POTENTIAL FOR ABUSE. ADMINISTRATION OF AMPHETAMINES FOR PROLONGED PERIODS OF TIME MAY LEAD TO DRUG DEPENDENCE AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PARTICULAR ATTENTION SHOULD BE PAID TO THE POSSIBILITY OF SUBJECTS OBTAINING AMPHETAMINES FOR NONTHERAPEUTIC USE OR DISTRIBUTION TO OTHERS, AND THE DRUGS SHOULD BE PRESCRIBED OR DISPENSED SPARINGLY. MISUSE OF AMPHETAMINE MAY CAUSE SUDDEN DEATH AND SERIOUS CARDIOVASCULAR ADVERSE EVENTS.
ABOVE: FDA black box warning label means that medical studies indicate the drug carries a significant risk of serious or even life-threatening adverse effects.
Attention deficit disorder
How Amphetamines Work:
When we are stressed or under threat, the central nervous system prepares us for physical action by creating particular physiological changes. Amphetamines prompt the brain to initiate this ‘fight or flight’ response. These changes include:
The release of adrenalin and other stress hormones
Increased heart rate and blood pressure
Redirected blood flow into the muscles and away from the gut
In small doses amphetamines can banish tiredness and make the user feel alert and refreshed. However, the burst of energy comes at a price. A “speed crash” always follows the high and may leave the person feeling nauseous, irritable, depressed and extremely exhausted.
Do Not Use If
You have not tried other psychotherapy, have high blood pressure or any form of heart disease, are very nervous or have severe insomnia, have a history of addiction to drugs or alcohol, or have Tourette syndrome. Do not combine with monoamine oxidase inhibitors.
Common Side Effects
Loss of appetite
Difficulty falling asleep (insomnia)
Nervousness including agitation,
anxiety and irritability
Less Common Side Effects
High blood pressure
Rapid pulse rate
Tolerance (constant need to raise the dose)
Feelings of suspicion and paranoia
Visual hallucinations (seeing things that are not there)
Dermatoses (infected or diseased skin)
Urinary tract infection
Infection or viral infection
Elevated ALT enzyme levels in the blood (signaling liver damage)
Overdose Side Effects
Amphetamines have been extensively abused. Extreme psychological dependence and severe social disability have resulted. Abuse of amphetamines may cause a sudden heart attack even in those with no signs of heart disease.
Symptoms of overdose that require immediate medical assistance include:
Hyperreflexia (overactive reflexes, which can include twitching or spasms)
Symptoms of depression
Seizures or abnormal EEGs
High blood pressure
Rapid heart beat
Swelling of hands/feet/ankles (for example, numbing of the fingertips)
Unexplained muscle pain
Lower abdominal pain
Rhabdomyolysis and kidney damage
- Chronic abuse can manifest itself as psychosis, often indistinguishable from schizophrenia
Amphetamine-Induced Anxiety Disorder
The onset of amphetamine-induced anxiety disorder can occur during amphetamine use or withdrawal, according to best-selling psychiatry text, Kaplan and Sadock’s Synopsis of Psychiatry citing American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders “Amphetamine, as with cocaine, can induce symptoms similar to those seen in obsessive disorder, panic disorder, and phobic disorders,” states Synopsis of Psychiatry.
Induction of schizophrenic-like states in children on prescribed doses of stimulant medications, including Adderall, have been observed, though not as well documented as with amphetamine abusers, according to The Journal of the American Board of Family Medicine in an article entitled, “Adderall-Induced Psychosis in an Adolescent.”
Amphetamine-Induced Sexual Dysfunction
Referring again to American Psychiatric Association’s Manual of Mental Disorders, Synopsis of Psychiatry states: “High doses and long-term use of amphetamines are associated with erectile disorder and other sexual dysfunctions.”
Dependence, Tolerance and Withdrawal
It is possible to build up a tolerance to amphetamines, which means the person using the drug needs to take larger doses to achieve the same effect. Over time, the body might come to depend on amphetamines just to function normally. The person craves the drug and their psychological dependence makes them panic if access is denied, even temporarily. Withdrawal symptoms can include tiredness, panic attacks, crankiness, extreme hunger, depression and nightmares. Some people experience a pattern of “binge crash” characterized by using continuously for several days without sleep, followed by a period of heavy sleeping.
If It Doesn’t Work
The drug should be stopped gradually. Withdrawal symptoms are psychological and stopping suddenly can cause extreme fatigue and severe, even suicidal, depression in adult patients.

Patient comments about Dr. Cathal P Grant MD, Bedford, Texas :
- This doctor (Grant) does not listen to what you say
- “This doctor does not listen to what you say. We were there to get help for my ADHD son. Told him we like the meds currently using just needed help on how to manage the disorder and school. All he wanted to talk about was changing meds. Office very busy and he ran 45 min behind but we were in his office less than 10 min. I asked the staff about wait time, they acted like this was the norm”
- “I have reported them to the State of Texas for their “cattle call” ways and negligence. BEWARE”
- Found out Most of Patients in Springwood hospital was Grant’s
“Saw the nurse practitioner more than the doctor, I told the doctor on several occasions that Abilify was making me depressed and feeling worse, they continued my dosage and increased it even. At my lowest doctor referred me to Springwood hospital, while my stay there, I realized that half the patients that were there were patients of Dr. Grant’s. I changed doctors, and recommend the same.”
- He is out to make the money and it is apparent the way patients are herded through the practice with no regard for the patient’s needs.
We found out that he gets paid to speak for almost every drug company out there, even if the drugs are competitors. He is out to make the money and it is apparent the way patients are herded through the practice with no regard for the patient’s needs.
- Beware if he tries to prescribe you a “new” drug on the market, it probably means they are paying him now. “
- CATHAL WHO??
“Never met the man (may be a woman) only met his PAs. Weight 30 min. to set with PA just long enough for them to push some pills – write the scripts and out the door… They process people like Tyson processes chicken.”
