ADHD Stimulants and Reflux

“My daughter has been taking a stimulant for nine months, and recently, she’s been getting stomach aches and vomiting after eating. Her doctor says she has reflux.”

Since your daughter has been taking the stimulant for months and has developed these problems only recently, it’s probably not the stimulant. Her doctor is right to look for another cause, and I urge her to follow his proposed treatment.
