Abstract :

Few studies have shown that the use of double-blind placebo medication trials to evaluate methylphenidate (MPH) effects the core behavioral symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder. This study presents a technique for evaluating behavioral and cognitive dose-response relationships at the single-subject level of analysis. The results show that systematic evaluation of behavioral and cognitive MPH dose-response relationships could lead to accurate MPH titration and long-term multimodel treatment efficacy.
