If you or a loved one took the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) drug Adderall and experienced a serious side effect such as renal failure, a heart attack, or a stroke, you should contact our experienced Adderall lawyers to learn more about Adderall lawsuits. An Adderall lawsuit or class action lawsuit may be able to help you seek compensation for your losses.

Several class action lawsuits have already been filed by individuals who claim that they were injured by adverse side effects related to ADHD medications such as Adderall, Ritalin, and Concerta. For example, one class action lawsuit against Novartis, Ritalin’s manufacturer, alleges that five children ages 7 to 14 suffered cardiac episodes and hallucinations after consuming the popular ADHD drug. Through their lawsuits, these children’s families plan to seek damages for the health problems the children have already encountered as well as the long-term side effects Ritalin causes.

Adderall Lawsuits & Sudden Death

Family members of Adderall patients who experienced sudden death may be eligible for compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit. Recent discoveries demonstrate a possible link between Adderall and the deaths of at least 81 individuals taking the medication. The FDA has cautioned that although no definitive evidence has been found linking Adderall to sudden death, doctors should be aware that Adderall can cause potentially life-threatening adverse side effects such as high blood pressure, heart attack, and stroke. A Canadian agency has already recalled the ADHD medication due to concerns about the drug’s dangerous side effects.

Adderall Lawsuits & Addiction

An additional problem with Adderall that may cause its maker to be flooded with lawsuits is that Adderall is addictive. Specifically, Adderall can cause physical chemical dependency, making it difficult to stop taking the medication after extended use without experiencing adverse withdrawal symptoms. According to a black box warning issued by the FDA, Adderall has high potential for abuse, especially among college students.
