Just suspicious[edit]

"Underdosing of stimulants can occur and result in a lack of response or later loss of effectiveness.[171] This is particularly common in adolescents and adults as approved dosing is based on school-aged children, causing some practitioners to use weight based or benefit based off-label dosing instead.[172][173][174]"

This part is suspicious cause I saw there were maximum daily doses of stimulants for adults written in labels of respective medications recently updated and approved by the FDA in the DailyMed website. I don't have time to read the citations supporting that said part above, therefore I would like to raise my suspicion here. Thanks. --It's gonna be awesome!Talk♬ 19:37, 11 June 2018 (UTC)

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorderAttention-deficit hyperactivity disorder – The spelling "attention deficit hyperactivity disorder" is confusing (attention disorder of deficit hyperactivity?). Wipur (talk) 13:36, 29 June 2018 (UTC)

This is a contested technical request (permalink). –Ammarpad (talk) 18:11, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Not always seen with a hyphen, better discuss first. JE98 (talk) 15:58, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
    Nothing is "always" seen with a hyphen. That's not our standard.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  18:29, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Support per MOS:HYPHEN. This is a hyperactivity disorder involving an attention deficit, which serves as a compound adjective in the title. It is not a deficit hyperactivity disorder about attention, or an attention disorder of deficit hyperactivies, or anything else. Hyphens exists for a reason (well several, but in this context just one: joining parts of a compound modifier). It can be found without the hyphen, but in styles that drop hyphens from nearly everything. Wikipedia is not written in that style.  — SMcCandlish ¢ 😼  18:29, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose per WP:NCMED. Both ICD10 and 11 [1] use "Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder", although recent medical journal articles are mixed. jamacfarlane (talk) 23:30, 29 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose per ICD. Doc James (talk · contribs · email) 11:24, 30 June 2018 (UTC)
  • Support per generally accepted English orthography. Roger (Dodger67) (talk) 14:57, 2 July 2018 (UTC)
  • Oppose per ICD and I'm assuming it's not the spelling but the etymology of the word you're stating as the case. If you want to get into semantics, it's presented as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder in DSM-5. – TheGridExe (talk) 20:43, 2 July 2018 (UTC)

Sentence about coping mechanisms[edit]

"Adolescents and adults tend to develop coping skills which make up for some or all of their impairments."

Used ref:

I believe this should be deleted as it goes against the definition of ADHD (impairment defines disorder). There is also no source for this sentence in the source. So even in any case, a new ref is needed. At present it only says: "There is a high probability of co-morbid disorders, as well as the likelihood that the adult with ADHD has developed coping mechanisms to compensate for his or her impairment." I think that's too vague. --NorthernNights (talk) 07:45, 10 September 2018 (UTC)
