Cardiovascular Risk Increased for Children Taking ADHD Medication- by The Evidence Based Chiropractor

New Danish research shows that children taking medication for ADHD are at a greater risk for cardiovascular problems than a sample of children with ADHD who are not taking medication.  The risk for cardiovascular problems was found to be doubled for those taking medications. 

The absolute incidence of these potential problems is still very low (under 1%), however, it is alarming anytime the rate of potential pathology is doubled due to a medication.  With literally millions of children being prescribed ADHD medications each year; there is the potential for these medications to cause a significant number of children to encounter cardiovascular problems and be forced to receive more intensive treatments and medications.
