ADD/ADHD Research

Study Finds Careful Medication Management Of ADHD Superior To Behavioural Treatment

A 14-Month Randomized Clinical Trial of Treatment Strategies for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder

The conclusions of the above study carried out by Dr. Peter Jensen of the New York State Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University, leading 6 independent research teams in collaboration with the Division of Services and Intervention Research, National Institute of Mental Health, and the Office of Special Education Programs, US Department of Education, Washington, DC., were as follows:

For ADHD symptoms, our carefully crafted medication management was superior to behavioral treatment and to routine community care that included medication. Our combined treatment did not yield significantly greater benefits than medication management for core ADHD symptoms, but may have provided modest advantages for non-ADHD symptom and positive functioning outcomes.

The full report was published in the December 1999 and can be seen by clicking here. We are grateful to Dr. Peter Jensen for his permission to cite the article and for providing the full report.
