Amphetamine-induced Chorea in Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder

John C Morgan et al. Mov Disord. .

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.
