OBJECTIVE To evaluate the effectiveness and cost effectiveness of methylphenidate in the treatment of children with hyperkinetic disorder as defined using ICD-10 criteria. [] Key MethodDESIGN Comprehensive literature review and cost utility analysis comparing methylphenidate treatment with placebo. Costs and effects were estimated from a NHS perspective according to the methodology developed by the previous South and West Development and Evaluation Committee.

A cost analysis of the management of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in children in the UK

TLDR
UK treatment costs over 1 year appear comparable regardless of whether patients were treated first with OROS®* MPH or MPH-IR, and treating patients first with BEH and then adding stimulant medication if needed resulted in higher overall annual treatment costs.

Which boys respond to stimulant medication? A controlled trial of methylphenidate in boys with disruptive behaviour

TLDR
The results support the validity of a construct of hyperactivity in describing childhood psychopathology, but emphasize the need for a refinement of diagnostic criteria.

Side effects of methylphenidate in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder: a systemic, placebo-controlled evaluation.

TLDR
Stimulant medication within this therapeutic range, therefore, results in few, generally mild side effects, and Surprisingly, a high frequency of these behavior side effects were reported during the placebo condition.

Methylphenidate and growth in hyperactive children. A controlled withdrawal study.

TLDR
The results document a linkage between exposure to methylphenidate and reduction in growth velocity, however, they do not address whether the medication has long-term effects on height.

One-year follow-up of hyperactive boys treated with imipramine or methylphenidate.

TLDR
There was a higher rate of discontinuance of imipramine than of methylphenidate in this sample of hyperactive boys, and both medications decreased the boys' rate of weight gain but had no significant effect on growth in height.

Assessment of Stimulant Response in ADHD Children Using a Refined Multimethod Clinical Protocol

TLDR
The data indicate a statistically significant medication response on most measures, as well as a significant difference between the low and moderate doses on some measures.

Attention deficit disorder and methylphenidate: normalization rates, clinical effectiveness, and response prediction in 76 children.

TLDR
Analysis of the clinical significance of effects indicated that large proportions of treated children exhibited significantly improved or normalized classroom functioning; however, a large subset of them failed to show improved academic functioning.

Hyperactive boys almost grown up. III. Methylphenidate effects on ultimate height.

TLDR
The findings indicated that methylphenidate therapy does not compromise final height, even when it has an adverse impact on children's growth rate during the active treatment phase, and a compensatory growth rate appears to occur following discontinuation of stimulant therapy.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder in Children and Adolescents

TLDR
Although some children are being diagnosed as having ADHD with insufficient evaluation and in some cases stimulant medication is prescribed when treatment alternatives exist, there is little evidence of widespread overdiagnosis or misdiagnosis of ADHD or ofidespread overprescription of methylphenidate by physicians.

Effects of methylphenidate dosage in hyperactive reading-disabled children: I. Behavior and cognitive performance effects.

TLDR
Hyperactive behaviors were significantly reduced in the 0.7 mg/kg dose group as compared with the placebo group, and teachers perceived an increase in hyperactivity during the last 3 months of treatment, and this was not explained by changes in methylphenidate plasma concentration.
