ADHD drugs' black-box warning sparks concern

From the CEC Smart Brief:

With the FDA's decision last week to add a black-box warning to Ritalin, Adderall and other attention deficit hyperactivity disorder medications, many parents may be thinking twice before putting their children on the medications. The decision was based on reports of 25 children and adults dying suddenly from 1999 to 2003 after taking the drugs. USA TODAY (2/15)
