ADHD medications have had questionable long term safety tests. Each drug was tested on an average of 75 patients before getting FDA approval. The average length of each trial was only 4 weeks. These medications are prescribed to children for years and not weeks. Therefore one can conclude that the drug approval process for ADHD medications as far as long term safety was concerned was severely lacking. Long term safety was in fact not officially determined at the time they were initially deemed safe.
