The objective of this study is to compare the effect of Concerta (Osmotic Release Oral System Extended Release Methylphenidate HCL, OROS MPH) and Strattera (Atomoxetine) on the laboratory and ecological executive function in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder.
The sample will include 134 ADHD children and adolescence, randomized assigned to Concerta and strattera treatment group, with 67 cases in each. It will also include 67 sex and age matched normal control. The drug will be titrated to optimal dose. The executive function including inhibition, working memory, set shifting and plan will be compared among two medication group and the control group, using laboratory executive function test and Behavior Rating Inventory of Executive Function (BRIEF).

A propylamine derivative and selective ADRENERGIC UPTAKE INHIBITOR that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.
A behavior disorder originating in childhood in which the essential features are signs of developmentally inappropriate inattention, impulsivity, and hyperactivity. Although most individuals have symptoms of both inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity, one or the other pattern may be predominant. The disorder is more frequent in males than females. Onset is in childhood. Symptoms often attenuate during late adolescence although a minority experience the full complement of symptoms into mid-adulthood. (From DSM-IV)
A methylphenidate derivative, DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT that is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.
A dextroamphetamine drug precursor that also functions as a CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM STIMULANT and DOPAMINE UPTAKE INHIBITOR and is used in the treatment of ATTENTION DEFICIT HYPERACTIVITY DISORDER.
The d-form of AMPHETAMINE. It is a central nervous system stimulant and a sympathomimetic.
