Abstract

We examine whether, among children diagnosed with ADHD, are those whose mothers have a history of psychotropic medication use more likely to treat their ADHD with medication? Children born in Manitoba, Canada from 2000 to 2010 diagnosed with ADHD between their 4th and 8th birthday. Maternal psychotropic medication use was assessed from one year before the child’s birth to the child’s fourth birthday. Logistic regression models examine the relationship between maternal history of psychotropic medication use and the use of medication to treat ADHD in children. Among the 2384 children diagnosed with ADHD, the rate of ADHD medication use was higher for those whose mother had a history of psychotropic medication use (76.6%) than for those whose mothers did not (72.5%) (OR 1.24, 95% CI 1.03, 1.49). Children whose mothers have a history of psychotropic medication use are more likely to have their ADHD treated with medication.
