Tx ADHD:

Stimulants (methylphenidate/amphetamine)----->modafinil------->atomoxetine------->antidepressants/clonidine
This is as given in Kaplan psychiatry!

Another Tx schedule is:

Stimulants (methylphenidate/amphetamine)-------> TCA's/bupropion------------>clonidine--------->atomoxetine.
(Don't remember the source)

Which one is correct?

Its Modafinil and atomoxetine......If there is both methylphenidate and atomexitine...apparently atomexitine is a better choice because of its better side effect profile than methylpehindate.....
