Medication More Effective Than Therapy Alone in Treating ADHD

Vital Information:

  • In the largest trial to date of children with ADHD, carefully managed medication was a more effective treatment than behavioral therapy.
  • Behavioral therapy used in combination with medication was the best treatment for two-thirds of children in the trial who had other psychological or social problems in addition to ADHD.
  • The medication treatment for the study was much more intensive than what is used in conventional practice.
