Background: As it is defined stimulants are the first choice in the treatment of ADHD patients but some patients cannot use it because of side effects or poor response. It seems we need to use drugs from antidepressant group like venlafaxine and bupropion that have the same effect and define which one is more effective. In this study these are answered. Therefore 40 children with ADHD between 7 to 11 years old were selected after psychiatric interview and received ADHD and Conner's rating scale. The first group took venlafaxine and the second group took bupropion. The two groups were evaluated as pre- and post-test by Conner's and ADHD rating scale.

Result: Bupropion and venlafaxine were both effective on those children and their efficacy were compared in the entire sample and for boys and girls separately by using one-way analysis of covariance. There was no significant difference between the two groups in general and separately within males and females of the two groups.

Discussion: This article shows that venlafaxine and bupropion are both effective on decreasing symptoms of ADHD. The response rates are the same in the two groups.
