  • Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed): Amphetamine [BOOK]
    Drugs and Lactation Database (LactMed). National Library of Medicine (US): Bethesda (MD)BOOK
  • In dosages prescribed for medical indications, some evidence indicates that amphetamine does not affect nursing infants adversely. The effect of amphetamine in milk on the neurological development of the infant has not been well studied. Large dosages of amphetamine might interfere with milk production, especially in women whose lactation is not well established. Breastfeeding is generally discou…

    Pediatr Neurol. 2012 Sep; 47(3):216-8.Ford JB, Albertson TE, … McKinney WB
  • Amphetamine-derived medications are being prescribed with increasing frequency to younger pediatric patients to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Although choreiform movements were reported in adults with amphetamine abuse and in those under therapeutic treatment for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, previous literature concerning the pediatric population is spare. We descri…
  • Acute myocardial infarction in a teenager due to Adderall XR. [Case Reports]
    Pediatr Cardiol. 2012 Jan; 33(1):155-7.Sylvester AL, Agarwala B
  • Adderall XR is commonly prescribed for children and adolescents with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder. We present a case of a 15-year-old male who suffered a myocardial infarction after starting Adderall XR. Patient was otherwise in good health with no previous cardiac abnormalities. Cardiac catheterization was normal, and etiology was presumed to be secondary to acute vasospasm. The pati…

  • Adderall, consisting of a mixture of amphetamine salts and dextroamphetamine salts, is a prescription drug for attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Labeled or unlabeled use of Adderall is gaining popularity among young children and college students. Although it is rare, Adderall use is associated with myocardial infarction and even sudden death. We report a case of a yo…
  • The impact of the withdrawal of Adderall XR (long-acting mixed amphetamine salts) from the Canadian market on paediatric patients and their families. [Journal Article]
    Paediatr Child Health. 2007 May; 12(5):373-8.Cheng A, Tithecott GA, … Johnston IG
  • CONCLUSIONS: Of the 53 (43%) completed questionnaires, 89% of respondents indicated that they were concerned when informed of the withdrawal, while 58% indicated that they were frightened. Despite the concerns, only a modest degree of anger was expressed. Thirty per cent of respondents reported anger directed at Health Canada, 24% reported anger directed at the manufacturer, while no caregiver reported anger directed at their physician. Only three families (5.7%) indicated a decrease in confidence in the physician following the event. Fifty-eight per cent indicated a willingness to resume taking Adderall XR, if it was deemed safe by Health Canada. These results offer insight into patient and family perspectives following an unexpected medication recall. While caregivers were generally concerned and often frightened by this event, the present data do not suggest that the parent-physician relationship was greatly affected.
  • Special issues in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD in adolescents. [Review]
    Postgrad Med. 2008 Sep; 120(3):60-8.Steinhoff KW
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common disorder among adolescents but can be a challenge to diagnose in this population for several reasons. Obvious symptoms of hyperactivity and impulsivity are displayed less frequently than in younger children. Direct observation by potential raters is more limited because adolescents spend less time with parents and usually have multiple t…
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in adults: evidence-based recommendations for management. [Review]
    Postgrad Med. 2008 Sep; 120(3):27-38.Rostain AL
  • Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is associated with impairments in educational, occupational, neuropsychological, and social functioning in adults. Successful diagnosis and treatment of the disorder in adults can be a challenge because recent and integrative clinical guidelines are lacking and diagnostic criteria are based on making a retrospective diagnosis of childhood-onset ADHD…
