ADHD Treatment Guide: How to Safely, Effectively Use Medications and Non-Drug Therapies to Treat Attention Deficit Disorder
Date:5/27/2009

More than five million Americans currently take medication to manage their symptoms of attention deficit disorder. Yet untold millions remain undiagnosed and untreated for ADHD - partially because the process can be so daunting. A new downloadable eBook from ADDitude magazine aims to simplify things with expert explanations of popular ADD medications, potential side effects, non-drug alternatives, and more.

NEW YORK, May 27 /PRNewswire/ -- ADDitude magazine, the leading publication for families and adults living with attention deficit disorder, today released a comprehensive ADHD Treatment Guide. Top ADHD treatment specialists and magazine editors contributed to ADDitude's 60-page ADHD Treatment Guide, which contains proven strategies for:

  • Ensuring an accurate ADHD diagnosis while considering common related conditions like depression and anxiety disorder
  • Evaluating the dozens of popular stimulant and non-stimulant ADHD medications on the market today
  • Adjusting your type and dosage of ADHD medication to ensure the greatest individual benefit
  • Minimizing side effects of medication include sleeplessness, weight loss, irritability, and tics
  • Assessing non-drug, alternative treatment options including fish oil, behavior therapy, neurofeedback, and brain training
  • Working with an ADHD coach

"Devising a treatment plan for ADHD can be intimidating and overwhelming, especially if you or your child has just been diagnosed with attention deficit," says Susan Caughman, editor-in-chief of ADDitude. "Our eBook guides parents and ADD adults through the step-by-step process of getting diagnosed, finding the right dosage of the right ADHD medication, augmenting meds with alternative therapies, and managing symptoms moving forward."
