    Ritalin should carry heart attack warning

    According to this article, from today's Guardian, there have been 51 deaths in the US, and 9 in Britain, linked to taking a drug used to combat ADHD:

    The cause of death for two of the nine children who died in the UK was specifically heart-related: one had a heart attack and a second an enlarged heart. One was recorded as a "sudden death". One died of a haemorrhage in the brain and another of a swelling in the brain, two committed suicide and the last died of neonatal respiratory distress syndrome - presumably the mother was on the drugs.

    Worrying.
