New Paper: Recent Trends in ADHD medication use in UK

24 Jun 2016

Over the last 20 years, children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) throughout the world have been increasingly treated with medication. This study used primary care prescribing records to look at ADHD medication trends in the UK. We found large increases in the use of ADHD medication between 1992 and 2008, with usage levels then becoming stable since 2008. This paper is published in the BMJ Open.
