If you’re an adult with ADHD, medications can help a lot. They can give you back your focus and a feeling of control. But for many people, these perks come with a price – side effects. Most of the time they’re mild and fade after a few weeks or months of treatment. But that’s not true for everyone.
We have over a dozen types of drugs on the market, but some of the things listed here are the most common.
- Methylphenidate (Ritalin, Concerta, Daytrana, Metadate, Methylin, Focalin): these are the most widely used medication for ADHD and is the most popular.
- Dextroamphetamine-amphetamine (Adderall).
- Dextroamphetamine (Dexedrine).
- Lisdexamfetamine dimesylate (Vyvanse).
Seems strangely when taking stimulants to treat for a child too hyperactivity, but the researchers believe that they can help to adjust the level of neurotransmitters in the brains of children with ADHD. Anabolic steroids could be used as a short-acting and long-acting, so that your child can take as often as three times a day (with a short-acting medication) or perhaps only once a day (with the drug released slowly). The drug produced in the form of tablets, capsules, liquids and tapes.
Side effects: most children go through a number of side effects, the most common is insomnia, loss of appetite, or weight loss. Sometimes, children will be cranky, unpleasant or reactions “reverse” when smoking ceases to work. Very rare side effects that occur are: facial tics, which usually disappear quickly with a lower dose or change medications, and the abnormalities will decrease. Children should be tested the cardiovascular status before starting treatment with stimulants.
My advice for you is that before using this drug, we should go to the doctor and the doctor for more advice. ADHD disease is a disease that must cure slowly, so we shouldn’t be too worried and continue to use this drug for ADHD patients recovered.
