ADHD drugs can cause hallucinations in some kids                                                                                                                                                        By Julie Steenhuysen        Julie Steenhuysen        –    Mon Jan 26, 12:39 am ET
                                                                                                    CHICAGO (Reuters) – Drugs for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder can cause children to have hallucinations even when taken as directed, U.S. government researchers said on Monday.
                        U.S. Food and Drug Administrationresearchers analyzed data from 49 clinical studies conducted by makersof the drugs and found they can cause psychosis and mania in somepatients, including some with no obvious risk factors. In some cases, children hallucinated that worms, bugs or snakes were crawling on them.
                        "Patients and physicians should be aware of the possibility thatpsychiatric symptoms consistent with psychosis or mania" might arise inthe course of treatment, Dr. Andrew Mosholder and colleagues wrote inthe journal Pediatrics.
                        Their analysis provides fresh detail about known risks of the drugs,which include Novartis AG's Ritalin and Focalin XR, Shire Plc'sAdderall XR and Daytrana patch, Johnson & Johnson's Concerta, Eli Lilly and Co's Strattera and Celltech Pharmaceuticals Inc's Metadate CD.
                        It also includes data on Cephalon Inc's modafinil, sold as Provigil, anarcolepsy drug that was rejected as an ADHD treatment in children.
                        FDA spokeswoman Sandy Walsh said the data formed the basis for recentwarnings about psychiatric side effects that have been added to productlabels in recent years.
                        Millions of children use drugs to treat symptoms of ADHD, which affects about three to seven percent of U.S. children.
