Treatment Options for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Slide: 29 of 31

Gaps in Knowledge (1 of 2)

Data regarding the long-term effectiveness or possible adverse effects for all ADHD treatments are scarce. The few long-term studies that are available are mostly on medications. Much of the current evidence is based primarily on boys. Interventions in subgroups not commonly investigated to this point in time are needed, specifically individuals with a primarily inattentive subtype of ADHD, girls, teenagers, and adults. Other groups of interest are ethnic minorities and families of low socioeconomic status.
