In Reply Dr Romanos and colleagues suggest that we included 5 trials in our Cochrane review1 that should have been excluded. We disagree. The 4 trials they state used active controls actually used these cointerventions similarly in both groups (ie, the methylphenidate and the control groups). Such trials should be included according to our protocol.1
