Abstract
Objective The aim of the current study was to investigate the effect of methylphenidate-osmotic release oral delivery system (MPH-OROS)treatment on parenting stress in parents of children and adolescents with attention-de?cit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD).Methods Four hundred and ninety- ?ve children and adolescents (391 boys and 104 girls), aged 7 to 18 years who met the Diagnostic andStatistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fourth edition criteria for ADHD, were recruited at 48 psychiatric outpatient clinics across SouthKorea. Children’s symptoms, parenting stress, and parental depression were assessed at baseline, week 4, and week 8 of MPH-OROStreatment using the Korean version of the DuPaul ’s ADHD Rating Scale (ARS), the Beck’s Depression Inventory (BDI), and the ParentingStress Index, Short Form (PSI-SF).Results We found signi?cantly decreased scores of ARS, parental BDI, and PSI-SF from baseline to week 4 and from week 4 to week 8.Also, there were positive correlations among baseline PSI-SF, ARS, and BDI scores. The changes in BDI and ARS scores were signi?cantlyassociated with the PSI score changes, accounting for 20.1% and 10.0%, respectively.Conclusions We suggest that the increased parenting stress and depression in parents of children and adolescents with ADHD can beimproved following the treatment with MPH-OROS.
