Content By: Corkum, P., Begum, E. A., Rusak, B., Rajda, M., Shea, S., MacPherson, M., Williams, T., Spurr, K., & Davidson, F. (2020). The effects of extended-release stimulant medication on sleep in children with ADHD. Journal of the Canadian Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry, 29 (1), 33-43. 

Course Description: ADHD is one of the most common childhood neurodevelopmental disorders that affects approximately 5% of school-aged children. ADHD symptomatology reduces school performance, impacts peer relationships, and negatively impacts behavior. Consequently, multimodal treatment approaches that combine psychosocial interventions and pharmacologic treatment are recommended. However, this integrated treatment approach is not always common; stimulants typically function as the sole treatment modality. Methylphenidate hydrochloride (MPH) is the most commonly prescribed stimulant for ADHD symptom mitigation in children; MPH extended release (ER) is the most widely prescribed in North America. Researchers found that the medication dose used during the course of the study was effective for treating ADHD symptoms based on parent and teacher questionnaires, but sleep was still negatively impacted.
