A comparison of the newer treatment options for ADHD (PDF)


Psychostimulant drugs have consistently demonstrated efficacy in the treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Innovative technology has fueled the development of novel release mechanisms and isolation of active enantiomer components with the hopes of enhancing the duration of action and improving the safety and effectiveness. As a result, several new stimulant agents have recently been added to the arsenal of ADHD treatment options. Formulary selection is complicated by the high costs and small but distinct differences among these agents. The five newest FDA-approved stimulant agents for the treatment of ADHD are detailed, and a brief summary of future treatment options, including a recently approved nonstimulant agent, is provided.
