ADHD medications long term use side effects
my son is 7 years old and we still did not start him on medications but it seems that the majority of people who take ADHD medications in their childhood will need it in their adulthood. is their any side effect from using those medications forever ? can it at one point cause damages to the brain cells ? and what happens to him if i decided for any reason to stop the medication? will he regress or just be the same as he used to be. PLEASE HELP
