Medications for treatment of ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder) are designed to have a calming effect, reduce impulsive behaviors in children and help adults focus on tasks. The medications are powerful drugs which stimulate the heart and blood vessels. This has been shown to lead to an increased risk of heart attack, stroke or death under certain circumstances as an ADHD drug side effect.
