The Life Span and ADHD medications

The scholastic, researching, article/book-writing community of psychiatrists refer to the reality of medication across the lifespan of the ADHD person, yet this same circumspect literature limits its observations to perhaps 6 months at the most. Amphetamine, etal have been around longer than aspirin (technically). Someone out there must have determined that the condition does persist in cases into adulthood BEFORE it became an imprimatur unto the general public.

Anyone there taken these things a long time (for good reason), like 15, 20 years? I am pushing 8, see nothing at all amiss but one; I, me wonders.
