Recently strengthened warnings on the attention-deficit drug, Adderall, indicate that it may cause psychological side effects and that misuse may lead to sudden death from heart attacks and strokes.
In 2005, Health Canada (the equivalent to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration) banned Adderall after reviewing reports linking Adderall XR to 20 fatalities, 14 of whom were children, and a dozen strokes.
An Adderall lawsuit can help you seek compensation if this commonly prescribed Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) drug has injured you or a loved one. Recent findings released by the Food and Drug Administration demonstrate a possible link between Adderall and the deaths of 51 individuals taking the medication. The FDA has cautioned that although no definitive evidence has been found associating Adderall to sudden death, doctors should be wary of adverse side effects such as high blood pressure, heart attack or cardiovascular complications displayed in their patients.
