Assessing Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Consider how you might assess and treat patients presenting with ADHD.

Reflect on the psychopharmacologic treatments you might recommend for the assessment and treatment of patients with ADHD. Make three decisions concerning the medication to prescribe to this patient. Be sure to consider factors that might impact the patient’s pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic processes. At each decision point, you should evaluate all options before selecting your decision.
