Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental illnesses affecting many children as well as adults. People who have ADHD have trouble concentrating their attention on a single job or sitting still for a long time. They also suffer from abnormal levels of hyperactivity and rash behaviors.
Although there is no known cure available for treating ADHD, some treatments may help reduce the symptoms and increase functioning. ADHD is most often cured with medication, education, therapy, or a combination of treatments.
Medication: In most people, ADHD medications can help in decreasing hyperactivity and impulsivity and increase their ability to work, focus, and learn. The first course of treatment for ADHD is stimulants.
Antidepressants: Although antidepressants are not approved for treating ADHD, they are sometimes used to treat adults with ADHD. There are several types of these medications with both positive and negative side- effects. Patients taking medications must be observed closely and carefully by their doctor.
Therapy:Although there are various kinds of therapy available for treating ADHD, studies show that therapy may not be wholly effective in curing ADHD symptoms. However, still adding therapy to an ADHD treatment plan may help patients and families better manage their daily challenges.
