In this new study, researchers examined whether medications used primarily to treat ADHD are associated with an increased risk of heart attack, sudden cardiac death, or stroke in adults.
During follow-up, there were 1,357 cases of heart attacks, 575 cases of stroke, and 296 cases of sudden cardiac death.
Furthermore, results were similar when restricting the category of users to new users or to those with or without ADHD. Stimulant products and atomoxetine should generally not be used in patients with serious heart problems, or for whom an increase in blood pressure or heart rate would be problematic.
Patients treated with ADHD medications should be periodically monitored for changes in heart rate or blood pressure. Patients should continue to use their medicine for the treatment of ADHD as prescribed by their healthcare professional.
On November 1, 2011, the FDA communicated the results of a study in children and young adults treated with ADHD medications that also did not show an increased risk of serious cardiovascular events.

The researchers used computerized health records from four study sites, starting in 1986 at one site and ending in 2005 at all sites, with an additional assessment using 2007 survey data. Data analysis suggested that patients who were currently or had just begun taking ADHD medications were at no greater risk for serious cardiovascular events than those patients who never, or had not recently, taken the medication. Results also were similar when the comparison was restricted to those with or without evidence of prior cardiovascular disease or to those with or without evidence of prior non-ADHD psychiatric conditions.

Kidwell, a doctoral student in clinical psychology at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln, who led the study. However, other studies have concluded that the stimulants' ameliorating effects improve sleep. To reconcile the mixed results on stimulants and children's sleep, Kidwell and her colleagues undertook a meta-analysis, a type of study that summarizes the results of existing research.
These studies compared children who were taking stimulant medication with those who weren't. The studies also randomly assigned children to the experimental group or the control group and used objective measures of sleep quality and quantity, such as assessing sleep in a lab setting or with a wristwatch-like monitor at home rather than a parent's report. Taking a stimulant medication leads to poor sleep overall for children, the researchers reported online Monday in Pediatrics. They found that the more doses of medication a child took per day, the longer it took for that child to fall asleep at night. The study suggests that extended-release versions of stimulants, which are taken once a day, have less of an impact on how long it takes to fall asleep than immediate-release formulas, which are sometimes taken three times a day, with the last dose close to bedtime. Furthermore, the quality of sleep, or sleep efficiency — the percentage of time one is asleep while in bed — was worse for those on stimulant medications, although those kids who had been on the drugs longer fared better than those who had just begun taking the medication. There was also a gender difference, with boys on stimulant medication getting poorer-quality sleep than girls. Pelham, a clinical psychologist and director of the Center for Children and Families at Florida International University, who studies ADHD in children and adolescents. Pediatricians are often quick to prescribe a medication without adequate follow-up, he says, and "assessing sleep side effects is important — it needs to be something that pediatricians routinely do." For families, Kidwell says that the bedtime routines all parents use — reading stories, sharing news about the day, quiet activities like coloring — are very helpful for kids with ADHD too.
