A new study has found that teens and young adults who take amphetamines such as Adderll for ADHD are twice as likely to suffer psychosis.
Data collected from a private insurance company found that 1:660 teens who start stimulants become psychotic. They also found that Adderall is twice as likely as Ritalin to cause psychoses. An ad hoc group of psychiatrists found that they did not see these differences. Parents please don’t stop medication cold turkey. Talk to your physician.
