New data show non-medical use of prescription stimulant medications is a growing problem
The results of two new studies evaluating the non-medical use of prescription stimulants were presented today by Stephen Faraone, Ph.D., Distinguished Professor of Psychiatry and Neuroscience & Physiology at SUNY Upstate Medical University at the 2019 American Professional Society of ADHD and Related Disorders Annual Meeting in Washington, D.C. The studies found that NMU of prescription stimulant medications is a growing problem in the U.S. and that using these medications in ways not prescribed can lead to serious adverse health outcomes, with the risk increasing if they are taken by non-oral routes.
