ADHD Parents Medication Guide
Revised July 2013
Check out AACAP’s ADHD Parents Medication Guide in English and Spanish.
Updates to the guide include the addition of new research about children with ADHD in school, the transition of adolescents with ADHD into college and adulthood, and more effective treatments.
“We hope this Guide will aid families to better understand the advances being made in ADHD and its treatment, and to serve as a useful tool for clinicians caring for individuals with this disorder,” said Theodore Petti, M.D., medication guide workgroup chair.
The guide was revised by a workgroup from AACAP including contributions from the American Psychiatric Association (APA), the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), Children and Adults with Attention-Deﬁcit/Hyperactivity Disorder (CHADD) and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
