I. Why are medications prescribed to address ADHD?
There are 5 types of medicine licensed for addressing ADHD. These are manufactured as methylphenidate, lisdexamfetamine, dexamfetamine, atomoxetine, and Guanfacine.
These medicines are not a cure for ADHD but may help someone with the condition focus better, be less impulsive, feel calmer, and learn and practise new skills.
While some of these medicines can be taken every school day, a few of these medicines can also be taken daily. To prevent medicine dependency and to assess if the medicine is still needed, occasionally halting treatment is required.
