ADHD MEDICATION

ADHD medication has advanced in recent years. Of all ADHD drugs stimulant medication is the most commonly prescribed. The common ones are Ritalin, Adderall, Dexedrine and Cylert. Stimulants work by correcting a biochemical condition in the brain that disrupts attention and impulse control.

For someone with the signs of ADHD stimulant treatment can be dramatic. Attention spans improve and activity levels can decline to within normal limits and impulsivity can be substantially reduced. Social difficulties also show improvement. Quantity and quality of work can also improve.

Stimulant ADHD drugs can have adverse side effects in some cases. These can include: headaches, stomach aches, sleep difficulties, appetite reduction, drowsiness, irritability and nervousness. In rare cases they can cause hallucinations and bizarre behavior. Most people and children experience few side effects.

For those suffering with ADHD disorder there are several natural alternative options such as herbal treatments and homeopathic treatments. The ADHD diet is also popular and in many cases very effective. This diet eliminates food additives and sugars. It replaces them with organic foods and herbs like Stevia, a sugar substitute.

Bio feedback is another natural alternative treatment which has shown success. 

Some herbs have been shown to be effective in the treatment of ADHD. Ginkgo, Gotu Kola, Satint John's Wort, Skullcap and Stevia are all used with some success.
