Abstract

While patient choice is key when deciding on medication for patients with attention deficithyperactivity disorder (ADHD), doctors can sometimes unwittingly impose their views if the patient is unsure or unclear. Here, three specialists in the field discuss whether enough time is spent with patients examining and explaining the options, and if drugs are properly tailored to the needs of the patient. This discussion covers areas including approach to diagnosis and what factors should be considered when deciding on a particular drug treatment. Copyright © 2011 Wiley Interface Ltd
