Association of the dopamine transporter gene (DAT1) with poor methylphenidate response.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE This study attempted to relate the alleles of the D2 (DRD2), D4 (DRD4), and dopamine transporter (DAT1) genes to the behavioral outcome of methylphenidate therapy. METHOD African-American children with attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder were treated with methylphenidate in doses not in excess of 60 mg/day. The dosage was increased until… (More)
