ADHD Tied to More Traffic Accidents; MedicationMay Help

People with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are 50% more
likely to be in a serious traffic accident, but medication may counteract that risk for some,
according to lead author Zheng Chang’s new study in JAMA Psychiatry, online January 29,
2014. Overall, the researchers said that between 41 percent and 49 percent of accidents among
men with ADHD may have been prevented if they were on medication
According to Dr. Harold Levinson, this important study proves what all clinicians know.
Impaired concentration and distractibility may impair all functions and are improved by helpful
meds.

  1. You need to be a part of a contest for one of the highest quality websites on
    the internet. I am going to highly recommend this website!

  2. A motivating discussion is definitely worth comment. I think that you
    ought to write more on this issue, it may not be a taboo subject but typically people do not discuss such
    issues. To the next! Best wishes!!

  4. I’ve been surfing online more than 4 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all site owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
