Most of these comparative trials were short in duration, included only a small number of patients and did not measure the long-term effects of the drugs.

As for safety, the researchers found that short-term, randomized controlled trials do not provide clear evidence that any one stimulant is any more tolerable than another or that non-stimulants are more tolerable than stimulants.

None of the trials compared how well the drugs performed in terms of improving academic performance, quality of life or social skills, the researchers found.

Stimulant medications such as Ritalin and amphetamines are most often prescribed for ADHD, but the Oregon study includes several types of ADHD medications that have never been examined before in a systematic review, including newer stimulants such as modafinil and non-stimulant drugs such as Strattera (atomoxetine), antihypertensive drugs such as guanfacine and older antipsychotic drugs such as clozapine.
