About ADHD in Adolescents
Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a condition that causes children and teens to have difficulty with their attention and behavior. This often results in impulsive behaviors which can include inappropriate interruptions, physical contact with peers, argumentative attitudes and escalation of these when consequences are put into place. Behaviors can be triggered by real or perceived provocations and may arise out of frustration, annoyance or hostility.
About the Study Medication
There are many treatments approved for ADHD in adolescents with most medications being stimulant in nature. These medications may help with management of the disorder, but they are not always effective in helping children control impulsivity. This study is evaluating if a non-stimulant medication can better help children with ADHD symptoms and behaviors. Northwest Clinical Research is seeking research volunteers to help assess this question.
