New findings in safety of ADHD medication


Researches have new findings on drugs prescribed to treat ADHD.

They have discovered that the drug Ritalin does not affect a developing brain.

Doctors studied primates and gave them a standard dose of Ritalin.

Brain scans showed no difference in those taking the drug and those who did not.

The study also found that long-term use of the prescription medication did not increase the risk for future drug abuse.
