Treatment Options for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Slide: 27 of 31

Conclusions (2 of 3)

Evidence is insufficient to know if school-based interventions are effective for preschoolers, and there are very few data on the outcomes related to the use of ADHD medications in preschoolers other than MPH. For children 6 years of age or older, evidence is insufficient to know if nonpharmacologic treatments alone are beneficial in the long term. Evidence shows that ADHD medications are safe and effective for children 6 and older. For both preschoolers and children over the age of 6, long-term effectiveness and adverse effects are not well studied.
