A new study released by Massachusettes General Hospital shows that girls taking stimulants to treat their ADHD are signficantly less at risk to start smoking, drinking alcohol or using drugs than girls with ADHD who don’t.
This study is one more in a series that show ADHD stimulants are not only effective at treating the symptoms of ADHD, but they have powerful, positive health benefits.
This study was funded by the National Institutes of Health and by the Lilly Foundation. When you see a drug company listed as a funder of a study like this are you skeptical that it’s totally true? We’d love to hear your thoughts on this. Please leave a comment!
