Study: ADHD medications won't stunt kids' growth
from HealthDay News via Philly.com
Stimulant medications — such as Adderall, Ritalin and Concerta — used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children, won't stunt their growth, a new study suggests. "Stimulant medication did not affect children's final height as adults," said study researcher Dr. Slavica Katusic, an associate professor of pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota.
