Abstract:This article presents information on various therapies for attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). ADHD has become the most commonly diagnosed behavioral disorder of childhood, characterized by the core symptoms of inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. Children with ADHD may have one, two or all three of the core symptoms of inattention, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Psychostimulants have become the primary treatment for those diagnosed with ADHD. The stimulants used to treat ADHD include methylphenidate, mixed salts of amphetamine, dextroamphetamine sulfate and, to a much lesser extent, pemoline.
