Is ADHD medication safe for adults?

Promising news for ADHD adults: Last month we posted a blog about a study that reported that ADHD medication for children did not raise the risk of serious heart problems. Now, a separate group of scientists in the United States, commissioned by the government, have found similar results in ADHD adults.

The study, published a few days ago, looked at the medical records of more than 150,000 adults aged 25-64 using stimulant ADHD medication such as Concerta, Strattera, Adderall, and Ritalin, and compared them to non-users. From these records, they were able to show that those who were medicated were no more likely to have a heart attack, stroke or sudden death than non-users.
