The actor was treated with stimulant drugs when he was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder, but he doubts that he suffered the developmental disorder.
"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."
He additionally gushes, "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."
