ADHD: CONCERTA more effective in helping children with ADHD

From the CEC Smart Brief:

A study in The Canadian Journal of Clinical Pharmacology notes that the once-a-day, long-acting drug known as CONCERTA significantly helped more ADHD children aged 6 to 12 achieve remission than did immediate-release methylphenidate. Lead researcher Margaret Steele says symptom remission may allow children to better benefit from behavioral therapy and other interventions. MedicalNewsToday (U.K.) (2/6)
