Since 2015, Storebø et al. have tried to vilify Methylphenidate, by creating doubt around the validity of the scientific evidence which, for more than 50 years, have told us, that Methylphenidate was safe, effective, and had few serious side-effects. It have caused tremendous harm to patients, all over the world, as well as taken time, money and focus from ‘real’ science. In this article, I ask Storebø et al. (after advice from Cochrane Institute), to clarify their conclusions in their research, and ask them to explain why their science is so ‘bias-fixated’.
In a thorough and evidence-based commentary on Storebø OJ. et al.’s 2015 Cochrane System Review, Dr. Dr. Tobias Banaschewski et al. pull the Cochrane System Review apart, inch by inch, and finally concludes, that Storebø’s work is based on false results and inadequate conclusions, under the title: Trust, but verify!
After 4 years of bickering and with no useful results, Storebø OJ. and Simonsen E. et al. have just wasted God knows how much of our sparse research funds on … what!? … Nothing! … We call for a scientific enquiry into their agenda!
