A mother took her 5 year old boy to the hospital when he started vomiting several days after changes to his ADHD medication. She had noted that his heart rate was greatly elevated 224 beats per minute. An electrocardiogram confirmed a rapid heart beat and doctors are trying to find a pathological cause for it. Changes in heart rate can be caused by fever, exercise, dehydration and anxiety.
