Treatment of ADHD

Medication and behavioral treatments are both widely used for treating ADHD. Patients who receive behavioral treatments generally need less medication.

The most commonly used medications are stimulants such as Ritalin. It's important to receive the correct dosage since stimulants can worsen other conditions that share some behavioral symptoms with ADHD, such as bipolar disorder.
