Trial quality, bias may diminish value of methylphenidate for ADHD

May 24, 2016

A recent clinical review in JAMA reported that evidence supporting the use of methylphenidate among adolescents for treatment of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is of very low quality and should be reconsidered for future therapy guidelines.

“Methylphenidate was associated with improved teacher-reported symptoms of ADHD and general behavior and parent-reported quality of life,” Ole J. Storebø, PhD, of the child and adolescent psychiatric department at Region Zealand Psychiatry in Denmark, and colleagues wrote. “However, given the risk of bias in the included trials, and the low quality of evidence, the magnitude of improvement is uncertain.”
