What Do We Know about the Use and Effects of CNS Stimulants in the Treatment of ADD?
Pelham, William E., Jr.
Journal of Children in Contemporary Society, v19 n1-2 p99-110 Fall-Win 1986
The paper reviews uses and effects of psychostimulant drugs in the treatment of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) in children. Although about 70% of ADD children treated with stimulants demonstrate short term improvements, the use of stimulants alone has not resulted in altered long-term prognosis for treated children.
