Özet

Stuttering is a communication disorder characterized by a disruption in normal fluency and time patterning of speech. None of the pharmacological agents for stuttering could be recommended for general use; specific drug treatment that is simultaneously effective for both stuttering and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is currently unknown. In this article, we present a case affected by severe developmental stuttering and ADHD that was exacerbated by atomoxetine but favorably responded to treatment with methylphenidate.
