Antipsychotic medications represent an increasingly common treatment for ADHD.  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. However, they are only indicated after a patient does not respond to sufficient trials of both stimulant medication classes (methylphenidate and mixed amphetamine salts).
