Abstract [en]

The aim of this study was to examine if parents, of children diagnosed with ADHD, exprerienced any changes regarding their childrens appetite after starting psycostimulant treatment. Further more the aim was to examine what kind of changes concerning the appetite that were found and if they affected the meal situation as a whole.

Method: A questionnaire study was conducted in the spring of 2011. The study included 81 parent’s to children who were enrolled at the Habilitation in Uppsala and medicated with psychostimulants for ADHD. The children's ages ranged between six and 18 years. Results:

The childrens appetite had slightly deteriorated. There was no significant difference to how parents experienced the meal situations before and after initiating the medication. It was a higher number of parents who thought that there was conflict in meal situations before medication. It was about the same number who felt that their child's lack of appetite were the subject of conflict both before and after initiation of medication. Conclusion: A slight reduction in appetite was seen after the onset of the drug. A connection between low appetite and conflicts in the meal situations can be seen. Further studies in this area would be of importance to enable good advices and support to parents when they worry about their childrens deteriorated appetite.
