Sydney: Adolescent boys with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) tend to be shorter and slimmer than their peers, says a new study.Alison Poulton from the University of Sydney and her co-authors found that treatment for more than three years with stimulants was tied to a slower rate of physical development during puberty."Our findings suggest that stimulant medication delays the rate of maturation during puberty, including the timing of the peak growth rate, but not the onset of puberty," said Poulton, from Sydney Medical School, the Medical Journal of Australia reports.
