No red flags on ADHD meds says Prof Klein, NYU

NYU Child Mind Institute Professor sees no red flags in studies on long term use of ADHD meds. In this video, Dr. Rachel Klein notes that it’s difficult to isolate the effects of ADHD medicines long-term in the body. However, multiple studies have followed children into adolescence without an issue being raised. Some studies have followed people all the way into what is now their forties. Again, without raising red flags. She did not give citations, but sounded reassuring.

Dr. Klein is the Director, Institute for Anxiety and Mood Disorders and the Fascitelli Family Professor of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry.
