Medication Options for ADHD
Featuring Max Wiznitzer, MD


Medication for ADHD symptoms can improve attention span and decrease distractibility and hyperactivity. These symptoms can improve for more than 80 percent of children and adolescents, and at least 70 percent of adults affected by ADHD.

But while medication is effective for many people, how do you know if it is right for you or your child? This Ask the Expert Highlight discusses ADHD medications, including the difference between stimulant and non-stimulant medications. You can learn how medications work, the benefits, and potential side effects of the medications commonly prescribed for ADHD during this free webinar.
