There are several different treatment options for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) recommended by the Australian evidence-based clinical-practice guideline for ADHD. These treatments can improve the core symptoms of ADHD and improve functioning and well-being.

To optimise the outcomes for people with ADHD so they can live full, connected and rewarding lives, they must receive evidence-based treatment and support.

People with ADHD and their families should be involved in making decisions about their own care, as appropriate to their age and developmental stage. Clinicians should fully inform the person (and their family) about the options for care, the benefits and possible adverse effects of each. The acceptability and feasibility of each treatment for each person (dependent on age, location, resources, and service capacity) should be considered.
