ADHD: The Facts

There are many different medications used for ADHD, and these should only be prescribed by a medical specialist experienced in this field. Many children with ADHD do not need to take their medication every day of the week. The availability of long-acting medication means that most children with ADHD do not need to take medication at school. This chapter presents a detailed guide to specific medicines for ADHD, including short-acting stimulant medicines (Ritalin, Focalin, dexamphetamine, and Adderall IR), long-acting stimulant medications (Concerta, Ritalin LA, Focalin XR, Daytrana, Adderall XR, Metadate CD, and Vyvanse), and non-stimulant medications (imipramine [Tofranil], Clonidine, guanfacine [Intuniv], and atomoxetine [Strattera]).

Keywords:   ADHD, medication, stimulant medication, methylphenidate, dexamphetamine, Ritalin, Vyvanse, clonidine, guanfacine, atomoxetine
