Objective Evaluation of Therapeutic Effects of ADHD Medication Using a Smart Watch: A Pilot Study

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder is the most common health-behavioral disorder in schoolchildren. Several techniques are used to measure ADHD therapeutic results, including the Swanson, Nolan, and Pelham questionnaire, the Vanderbilt ADHD Diagnostic Rating Scale, and the numerical analog scale. Ten patients with ADHD were admitted. Hence, a smart watch with an accelerometer inside may be a more reliable and efficient way to determine ADHD medication's therapeutic effects.

Impact of personality on adherence to and beliefs about ADHD medication, and perceptions of ADHD in adolescents

Abstract Background: Adherence to attention deficit hyperactivity disorder drug therapy can avoid serious side effects, as well as lifelong effects. Several reasons have been found to influence adherent behavior, including personality traits, but the effects of personality traits have been inadequately investigated. This research was conducted to determine the correlation between personality traits and tolerance to ADHD medications, misconceptions of the drug, and ADHD perceptions. Perceptions Questionnaires were administered to adolescents on ADHD drugs: Health-Relevant Personality Traits Five-Factor Inventory, Medication Adherence Report Scale, Beliefs of Medicines Specific and Brief Illness Perceptions Anatomy Survey was administered by pediatrics. ADHD's personality trait Antagonism was correlated with adherence habits and perceived personal control of ADHD. Impulsivity was linked to perceived results and personal control of ADHD. Conclusions Personality traits are correlated to adherence, fears of ADHD drugs, and ADHD perceptions. Personality assessments may be helpful in the care and therapy of ADHD children.

Consensus workshops on the development of an ADHD medication management protocol using QbTest: developing a clinical trial protocol with multidisciplinary stakeholders

For clinical RCTs, including patients and clinicians in protocol development has the opportunity to produce research protocols that are relevant to their intended audience and could help overcome some of the inherent challenges in conducting RCTs. Methods We present the findings from three consecutive workshops aimed at creating a protocol to determine the feasibility of including a computerised test of attention, impulsivity, and activity in medication administration of children and young people with Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder ), as part of a joint effort toward developing a protocol. The workshops featured 21 multi-disciplinary ADHD experts, including physicians, researchers, and government involvement members, parents of young people with ADHD and researchers. Conclusion Protocols that are co-developed may help eliminate some of the risks associated with RCT completion and help prioritize findings of greater interest to the populations under scrutiny.
