Adult Attention Deficit Disorder Medications
The general impression about adult attention deficit disorder medications is that it mainly affects children and the image which springs to mind is that of a hyperactive, loud, noisy child. But, it is surprising how many adults too are being diagnosed with ADD. Although ADD may have started out in childhood, adults suffering from this disorder never did outgrow ADD and it continued undetected till well into their adulthood. Conversely, it is not necessary that every adult diagnosed with attention deficit disorder had to have had ADD in childhood.

Much of the adult population may have suffered from attention deficit disorder symptoms all their lives but would have put down those symptoms like restlessness, depression to other impairments which had not responded to regular treatments. Although adult attention deficit disorder medications are available, for effective usage it is important to first understand the symptoms of adult ADD.
Adults with attention deficit disorder have problems in organizing, prioritizing or starting tasks or ending tasks. They cannot concentrate on specific tasks especially if there are distractions. They are unable to manage stress and control emotions well and have difficulties in controlling oneself. Adults need to take adult attention deficit disorder medications if they are always forgetful and cannot remember things and have trouble in sustaining persistence or motivating oneself. Adults with ADD if not treated or not checked will face disruptions in career or social life, marital discords may happen leading to failed marriages and they will have problems in sustaining and nurturing relationships. Troubles in managing finances are also not to be overlooked. Although adults with ADD do exhibit certain positive symptoms like a high level of creativity, energy and spontaneity and a quick mind, they should not avoid taking adult attention deficit disorder medications.
Adult attention deficit disorder medications comprise of three types of medications namely, methylphenidates, amphetamines and Strattera. Methylphenidates have brand names like Methylin, Focalin, Concerta and Ritalin while the adult attention deficit disorder medications under amphetamines are branded dextroamphetamine, Adderall, mixed amphetamine salts and the latest medicine called Vyvanse. Amongst the adult attention deficit disorder medications, Strattera is normally the last resort when all other adult attention deficit disorder medications have failed to work.
Although these adult attention deficit disorder medications are known to be effective, they may cause different side-effects in people. Harmful effects like giddiness, vomiting, nausea, stomachaches, headaches, insomnia are some known common side affects. But, other more serious, adverse side effects of adult attention deficit disorder medications like suicidal tendencies and substance abuse have also been known to occur in some patients. For these reasons, other avenues of adult attention deficit disorder medications like homoeopathy remedies and natural herbs are being explored. Alternative healing like counseling therapy are also on the rise. However, it is advisable that adults suffering from ADD should first consult the doctor before laying off their prescribed adult attention deficit disorder medications as these medications have been prescribed to improve the quality of life.
