Exemptions For ADHD Drugs Have Dropped Considerably 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Mon Dec 2, 2019 1:28 pm

The number of Major League players allowed to use otherwise-banned drugs to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder dropped to the lowest level since baseball started issuing annual reports in 2008.

There were 91 therapeutic use exemptions for ADHD drugs for the 2019 season.

Drugs prescribed to treat ADHD often contain amphetamine and methylphenidate, stimulants on baseball\'s banned list.
