Crawford Questions Childhood Medical Diagnosis
GOSSIP GIRL star CHACE CRAWFORD fears he was "overprescribed" medication for Attention Deficit Disorder as a child - because he's not convinced the diagnosis was correct.
Doctors told Crawford he suffered from the developmental disorder while he was growing up and he was treated with stimulant drugs - but he now wonders if they were necessary.
He tells Britain's Evening Standard, "I don't know, but I don't think I am ADD. Now I'm much more interested in knowledge and learning. I watch a lot of documentaries and news, I have a hunger for that. As a kid, I was more interested in daydreaming and friends.
"They used to really overprescribe that stuff. (But) maybe it was good I took a little bit of medication, y'know? To help facilitate my schoolwork."
