Treatment Needs Of Teens, Younger Children With AD/HD May Differ Markedly

Reuters (5/10, Rapaport) reports that medication and psychotherapy may help adolescents with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (AD/HD) deal with their symptoms better and improve scholastically, the findings of a 17-study review published in the Journal of the American Medical Association suggest. Nevertheless, the authors of the review concluded that the treatment needs of teens differ markedly from those of children who are younger. For example, certain extended-release forms of stimulant medications may be better options for teens.
