Can certain ADHD medication make the immune system stronger?

I read about studies where unmedicated ADHD patients have much higher degree of infections etc.
50% seems to be much to high to be explained with only a change in behaviour.

And there also seem to be strong evidence that ADHD is an immuno related disease.

Are you aware of studies that show the immune system gets stronger from some of these medications?


"The COVID-19 infection rate is nearly 50% higher among individuals with unmedicated ADHD compared to individuals without ADHD"

"After controlling for confounding factors, the results indicated that influenza risk significantly reduced in the group of ADHD patients who were prescribed methylphenidate for 90 days and more"

"Recently studies have suggested involvement of cytokine pathways in those with ADHD. There is accumulating evidence that catecholamine and indolamine imbalances may be a cause or result of inflammation.

Cytokines are key mediators of immune function and can be either pro-inflammatory or anti-inflammatory. Therefore, ADHD may be linked with other systems in the body including the immune system, endocrine system, gastrointestinal system, and biochemical pathways."

Your post seems to try and be the start of promoting medications for COVID19...

It helps if you post the link, but the following quote probably will not fit your agenda... I also note you are referring to information from 2 years ago.

"The scientists posit that ADHD symptoms and traits, including failure to give close attention to detail, impulsivity, forgetfulness, risk-taking behaviors, and more might explain the elevated probability of exposure to Sars-Cov-2 "

"These characteristics of ADHD interfere with the ability to comply with WHO demands for the prevention of COVID-19 infection,” part of the study reads. "
