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."

The ADHD Treatment Guide is available for immediate download at www.adhdreports.com/adhd-treatment and at additudemag.com, the web's premiere resource for expert Q&As, trusted articles, discussion forums, free downloads, and blogs about diagnosing and treating ADHD in adults and children.
