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.”
