Treatment Options for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

This slide set is based on a comparative effectiveness review (CER) titled Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: Effectiveness of Treatment in At-Risk Preschoolers; Long-Term Effectiveness in All Ages; and Variability in Prevalence, Diagnosis, and Treatment, which was developed by the McMaster University Evidence-based Practice Center for the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), Rockville, MD under Contract No. MME 2202 290-02-0020 and is available online at

CERs are comprehensive systematic reviews of the literature that usually compare two or more types of treatment with usual care for the same disease. This CER assessed the existing body of evidence on the efficacy and safety of different interventions used to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). The literature included in this review was identified in searches for trials and studies published through May 2010.
