Prevalence of medication treatment for hyperactive adolescents

Daniel J. Safer, J. M. Krager

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Biannual surveys in Baltimore County reveal a consistent increase in the rate of medication treatment for hyperactivity (HA) from 1975 to 1983 for public elementary school students and an even more prominent increase for public secondary school students. Furthermore, secondary school students on medication for HA differ from their elementary school counterparts in that they are proportionally more often male, are more often given long-acting stimulant medications, and have remained on medication for a far longer period of years.
