  • Answer: The first-line medication in treating ADHD is a class of drugs called psychostimulants such as amphetamine (Dexedrine, Adderall, Vyvanse) and methylphenidate (Concerta, Ritalin). Most individuals with ADHD respond to stimulants and the current clinical research indicates stimulants are the best medication. However, each person reacts differently with each stimulant so there is not currently a "best" medication.
