Murphy et al find best treatment sequence for children with ADHD is behavioral therapy before medication

a PSC In The News reference

"Early Behavior Therapy Found to Aid Children With ADHD" - New York Times. 02/17/2016.

William Pelham, Susan Murphy, and colleagues evaluated the impact of altering drugs with behavioral therapy in different sequences. They found that drugs were most effective as a supplemental, second-line treatment for those who needed it — and often at lower doses than normally prescribed.
