Amphetamine-induced chorea in attention deficit–hyperactivity disorder

Authors


Abstract

Attention deficit–hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is treated frequently with stimulants in both children and adults. While tics are occasional complications of stimulant therapy, chorea is reported rarely. We describe an adult ADHD patient who developed chorea upon dose escalation of mixed amphetamine salts, which resolved on discontinuation of the drug. © 2004 Movement Disorder Society
