ADHD MEDICATIONS

What you need to know about medication for ADHD?

       
  1. Everyone responds differently to ADHD medication
  2. - Some children experience dramatic improvement while others experience little to no relief. The side effects also differ from child to child and, for some, they far outweigh the benefits. Because everyone responds differently, finding the right medication and dose takes time.
       

  3. Medication for ADHD is more effective when combined with other treatments
  4. - Your child will get much more out of your medication if he or she is also taking advantage of other treatments that teach new coping skills.
       

  5. ADHD medication should always be closely monitored
  6. - Medication treatment for ADHD involve more than just taking a pill and forgetting about it. Your child’s doctor will need to monitor side effects, keep tabs on how your child is feeling, and adjust the dosage accordingly. When medication for ADHD is not carefully monitored, it is less effective and more risky.
       

  7. If you choose to put your child on medication, that doesn’t mean he or she has to stay on it forever.
  8. - Although it isn’t safe to bounce off and on any drug repeatedly, you can safely decide to stop treating your child’s ADHD with medication if things aren’t going well. If you want your child to stop taking medication, be sure to let your doctor know your plans and work with him or her to taper off the drugs slowly.
