Story. Anecdote.

?2006 Shire US Inc., Wayne, Pennsylvania

What Mark [now pushing yet another ADHD drug]-- did not report.

The sudden deaths of 12 American children on Adderall for attention deficit
hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) treatment.

http://www.pdrhealth.com/drug_info/rxdrugprofiles/drugs/add1008.shtml

Adderall
Pronounced: ADD-ur-all
Generic ingredients: Amphetamines


--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why is Adderall prescribed?


Adderall is prescribed in the treatment of Attention Deficit
Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), the condition in which a child exhibits a
short attention span and becomes easily distracted, overly emotional,
excessively active, and highly impulsive. It should be used as part of a
broader treatment plan that includes psychological, educational, and social
measures. An extended-release form of the drug, called Adderall XR, is
available for once-daily treatment of ADHD.

The regular form of Adderall is also prescribed for narcolepsy
(uncontrollable attacks of sleep).


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Most important fact about Adderall


Adderall, like all amphetamines, has a high potential for abuse. If
used in large doses over long periods of time, it can cause dependence and
addiction. Be careful to take Adderall only as prescribed.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

How should you take Adderall?


Never take more Adderall than your doctor has prescribed. Do not take
it for a longer time or for any other purpose than prescribed.

Take the first dose upon awakening. If additional doses are
prescribed, take them at intervals of 4 to 6 hours. Avoid late evening
doses, which can interfere with sleep.

Adderall XR capsules can be taken whole, or the contents can be
sprinkled on applesauce. The applesauce should be eaten immediately, without
chewing. Be sure to use the entire contents of the capsule.

--If you miss a dose...

If you are taking 1 dose a day, and at least 6 hours remain before
bedtime, take the dose as soon as you remember. If you don't remember until
the next day, skip the dose and go back to your regular schedule. Do not
take a double dose.

If you are taking more than 1 dose a day, and you remember within an
hour or so of the scheduled time, take the missed dose immediately.
Otherwise, skip the dose and go back to your regular schedule. Never take 2
doses at once.

--Storage instructions...

Store at room temperature in a tight, light-resistant container.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Adderall side effects


Side effects cannot be anticipated. If any develop or change in
intensity, tell your doctor as soon as possible. Only your doctor can
determine if it is safe for you or your child to continue taking Adderall.


a.. Side effects of Adderall may include:
Dry mouth, high blood pressure, hives, impotence, overstimulation,
rapid or pounding heartbeat, stomach and intestinal disturbances, weight
loss

a.. Side effects of Adderall XR may include:
Abdominal pain, diarrhea, dizziness, fever, infection (including
viral), insomnia, loss of appetite, mood swings, nausea, nervousness,
vomiting, weakness, weight loss

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Why should Adderall not be prescribed?


Do not use Adderall if you have any of the following conditions:

Heart disease
Hardening of the arteries
High blood pressure
High pressure in the eye (glaucoma)
Overactive thyroid gland

Never take Adderall within 14 days of taking an antidepressant
classified as an MAO inhibitor, including Nardil and Parnate. A potentially
life-threatening spike in blood pressure could result.

Your doctor will not prescribe Adderall if you have ever had a
reaction to similar stimulant drugs. The doctor will also avoid prescribing
Adderall if you appear agitated or are prone to substance abuse.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Special warnings about Adderall


If you have even a mild case of high blood pressure, take Adderall
with caution. Be careful, too, about driving or operating machinery until
you know how Adderall affects you. It may impair judgment and coordination.

Adderall can make tics and twitches worse. If you or a family member
has this problem (or the condition called Tourette's syndrome), make sure
the doctor is aware of it. Amphetamines such as Adderall have also been
known to aggravate symptoms in seriously disturbed (psychotic) individuals.

If the problem is attention-deficit disorder, the doctor will do a
complete history and evaluation before prescribing Adderall, taking
particular account of the severity of the symptoms and the age of your
child. If the problem is a temporary reaction to a stressful situation,
Adderall is probably not called for.

At present, there has been no experience with long-term Adderall
therapy in children. However, other amphetamine-based medications have been
known to stunt growth, so your doctor will need to watch the child
carefully.


--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Possible food and drug interactions when taking Adderall


If Adderall is taken with certain other drugs, the effects of either
could be increased, decreased, or altered. It is especially important to
check with your doctor before combining Adderall with the following:

Acetazolamide (Diamox)
Antihistamines such as Benadryl and Chlor-Trimeton
Drugs classified as MAO inhibitors, including the antidepressants
Nardil and Parnate
Drugs that make the urine more acid, such as Uroquid-Acid No. 2
Glutamic acid (an amino acid related to MSG)
High blood pressure medications such as Calan, guanethidine,
HydroDIURIL, Hytrin, Procardia, and reserpine
Lithium (Eskalith, Lithobid)

If they annoy you or act different than the other so called normals, create
a name for a disease and kill them.
