  • New survey sheds light on Moms' perspectivies about AD/HD medications.

“Kids and AD/HD: Assessing Where Moms Stand on Treatment,” a new online survey of moms of children taking AD/HD prescription medication that was sponsored by Noven Therapeutics, finds that moms feel empowered to manage their child’s treatment and 9 out of 10 have seen improvements in their child’s behavior at home and at school. However, challenges managing AD/HD symptoms and knowledge gaps related to treatment options remain. Almost half (47 percent) say that at times they had not felt fully informed about all available treatment options and seek insight from their child’s healthcare provider for information. Please note that Dr. Quinn served as a paid consultant for participation in this program.
