Methylphenidate and mortality in children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder: population-based cohort study.
TLDR
Methylphenidate use is associated with a reduced overall mortality in children with ADHD in this cohort study, but unmeasured confounding cannot be excluded absolutely. Expand
Evaluation of the Persistence, Remission, and Emergence of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Young Adulthood.
