This study investigated the relationship between caregivers’ early views of ADHD treatment and the decision to initiate and continue medication for their child. 48 caregivers of newly diagnosed children participated in qualitative, semistructured telephone interviews with 6 and 12 month follow-ups. Analysis of the initial interview responses revealed 4 categories associated with caregiver perspectives: a) illness oriented, b) problem oriented, c) generally acceptable and, d) unacceptable. This dataset includes demographic information, family history of psychiatric illness, comorbid diagnoses, use of medication, and transcripts of initial, 6 month, and 12 month follow-up interviews.
