Is ADHD medication safe for children?

In a large-scale study, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently reported that medication for the treatment of ADHD children did not raise the risk of serious heart problems.

You may or may not remember this, but a few years ago – 2006 to be exact – ADHD medication was the subject of quite a bit of controversy and concern. At that time, reports of heart attacks and strokes in children who were being treated by medication led Health Canada to temporarily suspend marketing of ADHD medication.

Now however, the study is showing that stimulant medication used for the treatment of ADHD – such as Concerta or Adderall – are not in fact associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or sudden death.

Interesting stuff! To read more about the study and its results click the link below:
