Resum: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a common neurodevelopmental condition in childhood (5. 3% to 7. 1% worldwide prevalence), with substantial overall financial burden to children/adolescents, their families, and society. The aims of this study were to describe the clinical characteristics of children and adolescents with ADHD in Spain, estimate the associated direct/indirect costs of the disorder, and assess whether the characteristics and financial costs differed between children/adolescents adequately responding to currently available pharmacotherapies compared with children/adolescents for whom pharmacotherapies failed. This was a multicenter, cross-sectional, descriptive analysis conducted in 15 health units representative of the overall Spanish population. Data on demographic characteristics, socio-occupational status, social relationships, clinical variables of the disease, and pharmacological and non-pharmacological treatments received were collected in 321 children and adolescents with ADHD. Direct and indirect costs were estimated over one year from both a health care system and a societal perspective. The estimated average cost of ADHD per year per child/adolescent was €5733 in 2012 prices; direct costs accounted for 60. 2% of the total costs (€3450). Support from a psychologist/educational psychologist represented 45. 2% of direct costs and 27. 2% of total costs. Pharmacotherapy accounted for 25. 8% of direct costs and 15. 5% of total costs. Among indirect costs (€2283), 65. 2% was due to caregiver expenses. The total annual costs were significantly higher for children/adolescents who responded poorly to pharmacological treatment (€7654 versus €5517; P = 0. 024), the difference being mainly due to significantly higher direct costs, particularly with larger expenses for non-pharmacological treatment (P = 0. 012). ADHD has a significant personal, familial, and financial impact on the Spanish health system and society. Successful pharmacological intervention was associated with lower overall expenses in the management of the disorder.
