Hallfors, Denise; Fallon, Theodore, Jr.; Watson, Kim
Journal of Emotional and Behavioral Disorders, v6 n1 p56-64 Spr 1998
This study examined use of psychotropic drug treatment with 488 children and youth. It found that younger children, girls, and those with attention-deficit/ hyperactivity disorder were more likely than adolescent males with conduct disorders to receive medication. Stimulants, tricyclic antidepressants, and neuroleptics were the drug types most frequently prescribed. Findings are related to decisions regarding risks and benefits of medication treatment.
