Heart problems and deaths from Adderall

The problem is that while Health Canada is acting proactively on behalf of patients taking Adderall XR and Adderall, the FDA does nothing. There have been 20 international reports of sudden death in patients taking either Adderall (sold in the United States, not in Canada) or Adderall XR (sold in Canada). These Adderall-related deaths were not associated with overdose, misuse, or abuse.

If the FDA doesnt take this seriously who will?

The FDA concluded that in the pediatric population, potential risk factors include cardiac abnormalities that may be undiagnosed, positive family history for ventricular arrhythmias -- and as yet -- unidentified factors that may cause excessive levels of stimulant to accumulate in children who are taking what appears to be normal doses.

Health Canada, the counterpart agency similar to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), suspends the market authorization of Adderall XR, a drug prescribed for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in children and adults.

As of February 2005, Health Canada informed Canadians that it has instructed Shire Pharmaceuticals Group plc, the manufacturer of Adderall XR, to withdraw it from the Canadian pharmaceutical marketplace. Adderall XR, a Central Nervous System (CNS) stimulant, was approved in Canada on January 23, 2004.

Health Canada has suspended Adderall XRs marketing authorization due to safety information concerning the association of sudden deaths, heart-related deaths, and strokes in children and adults taking the usual recommended doses of Adderall and Adderall XR. The immediate release form of Adderall has never been marketed in Canada.

Health Canada is advising patients who are currently being treated with Adderall XR to talk to their doctor immediately about using Adderall XR and select safer treatment alternatives.

A Canadian preliminary review of safety data for the other related stimulants authorized for use in ADHD treatment has been conducted. In that review, the incidence of serious adverse reactions leading to death was higher in Adderall and Adderall XR combined than in the other drugs of this class.

Health Canada has asked manufacturers of other related stimulants approved for the treatment of ADHD to provide a thorough review of their worldwide safety data. Information updates will be provided by Health Canada as they become available.
