    Default Adderall Update

    The FDA in the U.S. has approved the use of Adderall XR in the treatment of ADHD for use in adolescents.

    Read the 22-Jul-2005 press release here

    Adderall XR was withdrawn from the market in Canada, following Health Canada's concerns about 20 reported sudden deaths in the U.S.

    See 10-Feb-2005 Press Release by Shire Biochem, Here

    and the 11-Feb-2005 CTV report Here

    It is not clear at this time whether Adderall is being returned to the Canadian market.

    If you have more information on Adderall XR in Canada or in the U.S., please let us know.

    Default Adderall Update

    Steve,
    A family friend of ours works at a school and works with "special needs" kids, kids with ADD and ADHD. I will ask and see what she has heard about Adderall. Plus, Minnesota has the highest ADD and ADHD reported cases in the US so it is probably a common drug here.
    The other day at a local grocery store, I saw a rack with books on it and one of them said, "pregancy for dummies"............

    Default Adderall Update

    Adderall XR back on the market August 24, 2005

    Health Canada has announced that it will allow the ADHD medication Adderall XR back on the market with the condition that manufacturers follow all of the recommendations set out by the New Drug Committee (NDC). The drug was suspended in February after it was reported that it could cause sudden deaths and strokes in adults and children taking regular recommended doses. The information release is on the Health Canada website
