ADHD Drugs Adderall and Ritalin Can Harm Children: Free Lawsuit Information
Unsafe ADHD Drugs Put 2 Million Children at Risk; ADHD Drugs May Cause Sudden Cardiac Death
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received reports that ADHD drugs, Adderall XR (Amphetamine-Dextroamphetamine) and Ritalin (Methylphenidate), may be linked to sudden death, heart attacks, strokes, and hypertension in children and adults.
GlaxoSmithKline recently amended the boxed warning label to its Dexedrine (dextroamphetamine sulfate) medication to include the following: "Misuse of amphetamines may cause sudden death and serious cardiovascular adverse events."
It also updated its Warnings section to the prescribing information to include: "Sudden death has been reported in association with CNS stimulant treatment at usual doses in children and adolescents with cardiac abnormalities or other serious heart problems."
In Canada, Adderall XR was removed from the market for six months in response to twenty sudden deaths and twelve strokes in adults and children using the drug. In February of 2006, the FDA reported 51 fatalities in patients taking ADHD medications.
If your child takes Adderall XR or Ritalin to treat symptoms of ADHD, you must know about the possibly deadly side effects of these medications.
