I've never heard of their use in adults, but the psychiatrists on panel may have. The stimulants methylphenidate
remain 1st line treatment with 80-90% efficacy when doses are titrated for optimal effect without significant side effects.Non- stimulants atomoxetine
& long-acting Guanfacine
have ~ 65% efficacy when used as single agents titrated optimally.
