About ADHD
A major unmet medical need remains in the treatment of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). In recent studies the prevalence of ADHD is estimated to be 7 to 8% of school-age children and 4 to 5% of adults. In the US, pharmacological approaches to treatment are the most common, and typically consist of stimulant medication, such as methylphenidate, dexmethylphenidate, mixed amphetamine salts and lisdexamfetamine dimesylate. While stimulant medication is an effective treatment for many of the symptoms associated with ADHD, there are concerns about diversion of these medications for misuse and abuse, and some rare but serious cardiovascular side-effects can occur with the use of stimulant medication. Non-stimulants such as atomoxetine, clonidine and guanfacine have also been found to be efficacious in treating ADHD, but the efficacy of these agents may not be comparable to that seen with stimulants. Even with stimulant treatment, optimal functioning occurs in only roughly one in four children with ADHD. Despite considerable advances in our understanding and treatment of ADHD, the disorder remains difficult to manage and further treatment options need to be developed.
