Medical News Today: Is hair loss a side effect of Adderall?

Adderall is a combination drug for the short-term treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) and narcolepsy. Although it is generally a safe and effective drug, it can cause a range of side effects. Alopecia, or hair loss, is a potential but uncommon side effect of taking Adderall. Learn more here.

Although intellectual disability was included in the first description of Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), the cognitive and neurodevelopmental (ND) components of DMD and Becker muscular dystrophy (BMD) remain overshadowed by their motor, cardiac, and pulmonary manifestations. To assess the ND comorbidity burden in dystrophinopathy patients at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital neuromuscular clinic, abstraction of the electronic medical record was performed for 46 patients. Diagnoses of ADHD, epilepsy, autism spectrum, obsessive compulsive, oppositional defiant, mood, anxiety, and sleep disorders, along with discussion of an...

AbstractOrganisms have an evolutionarily conserved internal rhythm that helps them anticipate and adapt to daily changes in the environment. Synchronized to the light-dark cycle with a period of around 24 hours, the timing of the circadian clock is set by light-triggering signals sent from the retina to the suprachiasmatic nucleus. Other inputs, including food intake, exercise, and temperature, also affect clocks in peripheral tissues, including skin. Here, we review the intricate interplay between the core clock network and fundamental physiological processes in skin such as homeostasis, regeneration, immune and stress re...

This study constitutes the first observation of an increased density of PSD-93-CRH co-localized neurons in the hypothalamic paraventricular nucleus (PVN) of patients with major depression. PSD-93 overexpression in CRH neurons in the PVN induced depressi on-like behaviors in mice, accompanied by increased serum corticosterone level. PSD-93 knockdown relieved the depression-like phenotypes in a lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced depression model. Electrophysiological data showed that PSD-93 overexpression increased CRH neurons synaptic activity, while PSD-93 knockdown decreased CRH neurons synaptic activity. Furthermore, ...

Gambling Disorder (GD) has been recently re-classified in the DSM-5 under the “substance-related and addictive disorders,” in light of its genetic, endophenotypic, and phenotypic resemblances to substance dependence. Diminished control is a core defining concept of psychoactive substance dependence or addiction and has given rise to the concept of “behavioral” addictions, which are syndromes analogous to substance addiction, but with a behavioral focus other than ingestion of a psychoactive substance. The main symptom clusters are represented by loss of control, craving/withdrawal, and neglect of ot...
