ADHD medications can be safe and effective when used as prescribed and under the supervision of a healthcare professional. However, like any medication, there are potential risks and side effects associated with ADHD medications.
Some common side effects of ADHD medications include decreased appetite, insomnia, and stomach upset. In rare cases, serious side effects such as high blood pressure, heart problems, or psychiatric symptoms such as mood changes or hallucinations may occur.
It's important to discuss any concerns you may have about the safety of ADHD medications with your healthcare provider, and to carefully follow their instructions for use. They can provide you with information about the benefits and risks of specific medications, as well as guidance on how to manage any potential side effects.
