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

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.

  • 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

  • Assessing non-drug, alternative treatment options including fish oil, behavior therapy, neurofeedback, and brain training
  • Working with an ADHD coach
