New report on stimulants for children with ADD ADHD
It depends on how you spin it :
Increased risk of cardiovascular events in children on stimulants – Wow! Bad!
Makes a sensational headline.
111 children out of 714,258 had events. The events were dose-related. It doesn’t mention deaths; that might suggest there were none. I don’t know.
That’s .01554 % if my calculations are correct.
I would like to see a study of the risks of water, or carrots ( I’m sure some children have choked on carrots), or exercise.
