Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Nearly all children can be overactive and inattentive at times, but for children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) this behavior can be extreme and disruptive. Symptoms can vary based on a child’s age and developmental stage.

Care You Should Expect to Receive - A good treatment plan will require regular follow-up care, especially for children who take medication for their ADHD.

Symptoms of ADHD may include:

  • Poor concentration and brief attention span
  • Increased activity – always on the go
  • Acting impulsively – not stopping to think
  • Sleep and appetite problems

How Will This Help Me? Taking medication is a common treatment for ADHD. ADHD medications can work differently on each patient. This is why frequent follow-up care is needed. Additional visits to your physician after starting medication will show how well it’s working and whether you are experiencing harmful side effects.


The Data:

The bar charts and percentages below will tell you how successful Minnesota physicians and other health care providers are in helping children who take medication for ADHD receive follow-up care.

The Numbers - The average physician rating statewide is 42%. This means that 4 out of 10 children between the ages of 6 and 12, who take ADHD medication, went back for follow-up care within 30 days.

High numbers signify high quality care. Your physician may have received a higher or lower rating depending on how many of their patients got the care they needed. It is important to know that small differences in these percentages don’t necessarily reflect the quality of care you will receive. It is important to look at the larger differences and talk with your physician if you have questions or concerns.
