Recommendation ID

Prescribing beyond monotherapy:- What is the clinical and cost effectiveness of various ADHD prescribing strategies when monotherapy has failed?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why is this important:- This guideline makes recommendations for the medication choices for people with ADHD up to the point at which common monotherapies are exhausted. There is very little evidence to guide healthcare professionals beyond this point, particularly with regard to whether there is a benefit of prescribing stimulant and non-stimulant medication together.
