When should treatment with stimulant medication begin?

Medications are indicated in any child who qualifies for the diagnosis of AD/HD. If properly diagnosed, this indicates that a significant impairment is present (as per the DSM V definition). Since no other aspect of treatment of AD/HD is as effective and rewarding, once a diagnosis is correctly established, treatment should be initiated.
