I think there needs to be a bit of cleanup as evidence changed significantly in 2018/9[edit] seems to be saying it best. Some things that we need to consider is "long term efficacy is unclear, symptoms etc. I just changed the infobox and let the long time collaborators work on it with what they can find from the consensus statement if they agree.

Unclear references[edit]

This text was trimmed in part because the refs were unclear and in part because they are likely primary.

" Antipsychotic medications represent an increasingly common treatment for ADHD. [39] [40] These medications are non-FDA indicated for ADHD, some evidence from clinical trials support a potential role in management of treatment-resistant ADHD. Antipsychotic medications improve severe behavior disturbances ADHD, such as aggression.[41] [42] However, they are only indicated after a patient does not respond to sufficient trials of both stimulant medication classes (methylphenidate and mixed amphetamine salts). [41] [42] Further, unlike stimulants, antipsychotics have common and serious side effect profiles and associated adverse events, such as weight gain and even unexpected death. [43] [44] "

This "While treatment may improve long-term outcomes, it does not get rid of negative outcomes entirely."

Was changed to

"While treatment may improve long-term outcomes, it does completely mitigate negative outcomes entirely."

Which of course changes the meaning entirely. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 21:18, 13 August 2019 (UTC)

People with ADHD tend to score low on IQ exams?[edit]

Where did you get this information? This is horrible and furthering the stigma that goes with ADHD in our society. Many people with ADHD are famouly genius, like Thomas Edison was according to Thomas Hartman and Jo Palladinno (Hartman, 2). Thanks! Hartmann, T.

The source for the information can be found in the article, all information in regards to IQ exams appears to be properly referenced. Greyjoy talk 06:10, 16 September 2019 (UTC)
