Nicotine as Good as Ritalin on Core Measure of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder | DocGuide (free registration access)

Nicotine as Good as Ritalin on Core Measure of Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder | DocGuide (free registration access) | Supporting students with ADHD | Scoop.it

NEW ORLEANS, LA -- November 13, 2003 -- Nicotine serves as well as the commonly prescribed drug methylphenidate (Ritalin) on measures of motor inhibition taken in teens with attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).

 

Investigators of a small study presented here November 8th at the Society for Neuroscience 33rd Annual Meeting, used the finding to suggest that smoking in people with ADHD is an attempt at self-medication.

 

Alexandra Potter, PhD, postdoctoral fellow, Clinical Neuroscience Research Unit, University of Vermont, Burlington, United States, noted that kids with ADHD take up smoking and become hooked at twice the rate of other adolescents. "If these findings are substantiated," Dr. Potter said, "these cognitive improvements may explain the high rates of smoking initiation and maintenance in ADHD."

 

Dr. Potter and colleagues carried out a double-blinded study of 8 teens ages 13 to 17 years, split equally as to gender. All had ADHD according to criteria from the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 4th edition.

 

Nicotine was delivered by a skin patch. Comparison was to oral Ritalin and a placebo for both medications. The teens served as their own controls.
