Health Canada has suspended that sale of Adderall XR in Canada after reports surfaced that the drug may be the cause of sudden unexplained deaths (SUD). Adderall is used to treat ADHD. Further recommendations have been made to avoid using Adderall problems if a structural cardiac abnormality exists. Five of the 12 deaths that occurred in children were associated with cardiac risk factors while 7 had no heart abnormalities. Some of the deaths were associated with strenuous exercise or a sudden unexplained build up of the drug to toxic levels.
