Neurodevelopment in Children Born Extremely Preterm Treated With Acid Suppressants
This cohort study assessed neurodevelopmental outcomes at age 10 years in children who were born extremely preterm and received acid suppressants in the first 24 months of life.
Relative Age and Psychotropic Drug Use in Preterm and Term-Born Children and Young Adults - PubMed
Being relatively young within the school group was associated with increased psychostimulant prescription in the preterm as well as the term population.
