      ~~~~~~ ADHD ALERT ~ Week of March 1st, 1999 ~~~~~~~~~~

      T O P S T O R Y________________________________________

      Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, CNS stimulants and sport.

      CNS stimulant medication such as Ritalin used in the management of
      ADHD is not permitted for use in competition by the International
      Olympic Committee (IOC). Fine motor coordination and balance are
      improved after methylphenidate administration. Stimulant medication for
      atheletes with ADHD may provide an unfair advantage in competition.
