Child psychopharmacology seemed like the stepchild of adult psychopharmacology. This was the condition child psychiatrists could call their own.Although there is still more information on pediatric AD/HD, there is an emerging body of knowledge specific to medication for adult AD/HD.Many of the medications are the same as those used for children and adolescents.However, when treating adults, there are several general differences to consider.Although medication choices were still more limited than they are today, clinicians still had more information on how the medications affected AD/HD children than they did on how the same medications affected adults. The adults were the ones with less data and fewer medication options.It used to be quite controversial to give stimulant medication to older adolescents, let alone adults.
However, some adults did get stimulant medication for AD/HD.
Usually it involved adolescents who simply continued treatmrnt after they turned 18.
Second opinions or special permission from the Drug Enforcement Agency were necessary if one wanted to prescribe stimulants to an adult with AD/HD.
Tricyclic antidepressants could be a less controversial choice.
Over the past 10-15 years, it has become easier and less controversial to diagnose and treat adult AD/HD.
Medication options have expanded, but stimulant medications, usually methylphenidate (Ritalin) and dextroamphetamine compounds (Dextrostat, Dexedrine Spansules and Adderall) are still a frequent starting place in the pharmacological treatment of AD/HD.
