A panel of experts from several European countries has accomplished a systematic review of published and unpublished data on the use of long-acting medications in ADHD and hyperkinetic disorders, on the basis of which practical recommendations for the application of these medications have been developed. The current article outlines results of this analysis, comparing the effect sizes and numbers-needed to-treat for extended-release stimulant preparations and atomoxetine (ATX). It is concluded (1) that long-acting preparations should be licensed and used. (2) However, they should not completely replace short-acting medications, in view of costs as well as the greater flexibility of dosing. Individual choices of therapy are necessary. (3) Both ATX and retarded-release stimulants should be available.
