Attention-deficit-hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common childhood disorders that can continue into adulthood. For decades, childhood ADHD has been treated primarily with CNS stimulants. In the United States, although numerous convenient, once-daily, long-acting CNS stimulants in various distinct formulations are available, they are classified as controlled substances, and abuse liability with these agents is a concern. As a result, nonstimulant therapies (e.g., atomoxetine, guanfacine ER) have become key therapeutic alternatives, though a lingering perception of less robust efficacy versus CNS stimulants had led to the continued strong presence of CNS stimulants in the treatment algorithm for childhood ADHD.
