There can be some stunting of growth with consistent (7 days a week) over a long period of time. Children ages 10-14 started on this drug were studied for over 3 years. Children on Adderall xr showed slight slowing of growth, but very small. Less than one inch in height and 6 pounds of body weight over the period than children taking no medication.
