(NBC) - A new study concludes medications used to treat Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder do not stunt childrens' growth.
Researchers followed over 300 children with ADHD into adulthood and compared their final height to people who never had the condition.
Although boys treated with ADHD drugs for more than three months had a later growth spurt than their peers, there was no difference in their adult height.
There was also no link between how long children took these medications and their final height.
