The feasibility of the use of the QbTest for ADHD medication compliance in young people diagnosed with ADHD

Attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is defined by three core symptoms; hyperactivity, impulsivity and inattention. ADHD can impact upon many aspects of an individual’s life, including their education,  social life, and relationships. One way ADHD can be treated is by medication. However as the young person reaches adolescence, there is evidence to suggest that they are less likely to take their prescribed ADHD medications. One reason for this is that they believe their ADHD medication does not work. Therefore clinicians report that having an intervention that can show the young people how their medication works may help them understand it better and therefore be more likely to take it. The QbTest ( does just this. 

Therefore this study aims to find out if it is feasible to collect Qb and medication adherence data with young people diagnosed with ADHD. If it is, the QbTest could be used in the future to help ADHD medication adherence in adolescents with ADHD.

This study is now closed.
