Abstract

EVIDENCE-BASED ANSWER

Maybe. Zinc sulfate monotherapy improves attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) symptoms on some but not all rating scales compared with placebo (SOR: B, RCT). Adjunctive zinc sulfate (with methylphenidate) may also decrease parent- and teacher-reported ADHD symptoms (SOR: C, small RCT).
