Controversies around ADHD continue, and higher rates of patients are diagnosed in the U.S., raising concerns about over-diagnosis and treatment. Physicians are often placed in the middle, with the demands of patients for stimulant medications posing a challenge to good care. Conversely, there is more and more evidence for developmentally-based impairments in attention that can respond well to medication. How can we accurately diagnose and treat ADHD with these countervailing forces? A rational, data-based approach is presented including the benefits and side-effects of different approaches, including behavioral strategies. The differential diagnosis is reviewed and cautions around particular "at-risk" populations will be detailed.
