3:38 - What ADHD does to effect your neurotransmitters
This video articulates the gist of the following: The number of medications available to treat attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD or ADD) is overwhelming at best, and the process for selecting the best ADHD medication for you or your child, or deciding to medicate at all, is incredibly personal. The ADHD medications prescribed to both children (as young as age 6) and adults are broadly categorized as Stimulants – considered the first-line treatment for ADHD. Amphetamines fall under this category, along with methylphenidate, the most widely used treatment for ADHD, and their derivatives. Nonstimulants – prescribed to patients who don’t tolerate or see benefits from stimulant medications (up to 30 percent of patients do not respond to stimulants. Three nonstimulants are approved to treat ADHD: atomoxetine, guanfacine, and clonidine. ADHD medication is also often accompanied by behavioral therapy and other non-pharmacological treatments. The most popular ADHD medications among ADDitude readers include (in alphabetical order): Adderall XR (amphetamine), Concerta (methylphenidate), Dexedrine (amphetamine), Evekeo (amphetamine), Focalin XR (dexmethylphenidate), Quillivant XR (methylphenidate), Ritalin (methylphenidate), Strattera (atomoxetine hydrochloride), Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine dimesylate), Many parents and adults with ADHD remain confused about the distinctions and similarities between these and other treatment choices for ADHD. Our ADHD medication chart offers a side-by-side comparison of the most popular stimulants and nonstimulants in the treatment of ADHD. What Are the Newest ADHD Medications? The newest ADHD medications on the market include Jornay PM and Adhansia XR – stimulant medications approved in 2019 by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in children and adults. Unlike most stimulants, Jornay PM is taken in the evening; the medication begins working by the time the patient wakes and through the rest of the day. Adhansia XR is available in six extended-release capsules, which include some of the highest dosage strengths currently on the market. Do Stimulant Medications Treat ADHD? ADHD is a neurological disorder, resulting from the deficiency of a neurotransmitter, or a group of neurotransmitters, in specific areas of the brain.
