Study will Compare ADHD Medications Effects on Sleep and Moods

University of Illinois researchers will be conducting a 10-week study on two of the most popular stimulant medications used to treat ADHD. The study will focus on the medications effects on sleep and overall mood.
"According to [Dr. Mark] Stein, short-term studies have found that ADHD patients often experience success with stimulant medications, but they discontinue treatment prematurely, perhaps due to common side effects that include sleep problems, decreased appetite and mood swings."
Patients in the study will range from ages 10 to 17, and will be monitored on a weekly basis. Some patients will receive medication, while others will receive placebos. Read more at News-Medical.com.
