Answer: (b) Dextroamphetamine IR (Dexedrine).

Note: All longer acting stimulant preparations are FDA approved for kids >6 yr age.
Among short acting stimulants all are FDA approved for kids >6 yr, EXCEPT for Dextroamphetamine IR (Dexedrine) & Mixed Amphetamine salts IR (Adderall)- both are FDA approved for kids >3yr

Answer: (b) Add Alpha agonist

If no or partial response after alpha agonist is added --> add atypical antipsyhotics --> if still no or partial response ---> add haloperiol or pimozide
