Report: More teens abusing Adderall ADHD drug

. By
Boston, MAWith more children abusing an ADHD drug, such as Adderall, there may be increased risk of Adderall side effects, including heart attack, occurring in younger people.

Adderall is prescribed medication used to help a child who suffers from attention-deficit disorder. However, it appears the Adderall ADHD drug is being passed along to other teenagers who are not afflicted with the condition, dBusiness News reports.

Because Adderall helps children with ADHD focus, some people have taken the medication as a way to help them study for exams or work on their homework.

The U.S. Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration recently reported that 59 percent of all prescription drugs related to mental health issues such as ADHD treatment were written by family doctors and not by mental health professionals.

dBusiness News suggested this called for parents to be adamant in ensuring their child is not sharing their medication with others.

The use of the Adderall ADHD drug has been linked to heart attacks, strokes and death. In 2006, the FDA reportedly found 81 deaths linked to ADHD medications.
