These side effects appear to be similar during short-term treatment (≈4 weeks) 101–104 and long-term maintenance. 100,105 Data from multisite clinical trials of both amphetamine- and methylphenidate-based stimulants indicate that these medications are generally safe for healthy children with ADHD. 103–105 Several studies report that nearly 90% of children will experience at least 1 side effect, but the majority are mild (63% to 69%) or moderate (28% to 34%), with 4% reporting severe side effects and with a 15% withdrawal rate from the study. 103,104 Decreased growth rate after long-term stimulant treatment also was highlighted in the naturalistic follow-up of children participating in the Multimodal ADHD study. 106 On average, there is an increase in heart rate of ≈1 to 2 bpm and an increase in systolic and diastolic blood pressures of 3 to 4 mm Hg. 107 Ambulatory 24-hour blood pressure monitoring has shown similar increases. 108 In general, these cardiac side effects have been thought to be clinically insignificant for most children with ADHD, but there may be a potential for severe adverse events in some children with certain forms of congenital heart disease or arrhythmias with a predisposition for sudden cardiac arrest. 48 No study has demonstrated a significant change in the QT or QTc intervals, 109 although 1 study showed 1 case of QT prolongation interval >25% with no clinically significant prolongation of the mean QT interval. 110 There is 1 report of a small open-label study of methylphenidate in 12 children with velocardiofacial syndrome, two thirds with congenital heart disease.
