ADHD: Amphetamine gets special warning as a killer drug

Amphetamine (alpha-methyl- phenethylamine) , also known as speed, is a
synthetic stimulant used to suppress the appetite, control weight,
and treat disorders including narcolepsy and Attention-deficit
hyperactivity disorder. Approved as a weight-loss medication in
certain cases of obesity. It is also used recreationally and for
performance enhancement (these uses are illegal in most countries).

Dexedrine is an amphetamine that, since the 1930s, has had a history
of misuse, and along with other 'recreational' drugs, is classified
as a controlled substance.

Despite this, it is still regularly prescribed to children with
attention deficit disorder (ADHD). In fact, it is seen as the second-
best option if Ritalin fails to work.

Street-smart children may feel this is a pretty good outcome, as the
value of the drug in the playground may seriously add to the pocket
money coffers.

Sadly, these heady days may soon be a thing of the past.
GlaxoSmithKline, Dexedrine's manufacturer, has been forced to point
out that, among other things, the drug may kill you. Children with a
heart condition have died suddenly while on the drug, and any misuse
of the drug may also result in death.

The warning may come as a bit of a jolt to doctors who have been
happily prescribing the drug to children for years. A quick trawl of
the Web reveals comments from doctors ranging from 'well-tolerated'
to 'quick and easy – one dose a day does the trick'.

Also, those who want to keep their weight in check, beware.
