Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder; medication treatment options


Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is associated with inattentiveness, over-activity, impulsivity or some combination of all three.  I am not going to attempt to describe the causes and symptoms of ADHD, an excellent description of this can be found at the U.S. National Library of Medicine.

My goal here is to help educate about the medications available for treatment. 

Medications for ADHD treatment are used in combination with psychological, educational and social counseling as part of a complete treatment plan.  These medications may help an individuals ability to stay focused on specific tasks and activities while also helping behavioral issues.  Treatment with this medication may also help an individual organize their tasks and improve their ability to listen.
