ADHD Medication for Adults

When treating adults, there are various medications used by professionals. At Mangoclinic, we offer an integrated treatment plan that features both stimulants and non-stimulants. Behavioral therapy is also included to help patients cope with the condition.

Adult ADHD Symptoms and Treatment

Most people with ADHD never really know they have it until they are adults. For many, the condition has been present since childhood, but they never got tested and diagnosed adequately for it. Others, however, know from an early age. However, with time and the stress that accompanies it, the symptoms of ADHD can change as one grows older.

Trouble Paying Attention

Lack of focus is usually the easiest way of telling that you have ADHD. You get easily distracted, and you tend to overlook details, can’t complete projects, and find it hard to listen in conversations.

Too much focus

Although people with these conditions get distracted easily, they also have hyper-focus. Hyper-focus means that if a person has ADHD, they become so focused that they lose all awareness of their environment.

Lack of organizational skills

A person with ADHD finds it hard to manage their organizational skills. You may find it hard to prioritize your tasks or even keep track of them.

Forgetfulness

It’s normal for someone to forget things occasionally. However, if you have ADHD, forgetfulness tends to be an everyday thing. This may include not being able to recall where you placed something or forgetting important dates. Anyone who’s not familiar with ADHD and its symptoms may confuse forgetfulness with lack of intelligence or carelessness.

Impulsivity

Another common symptom of ADHD is impulsivity. This may manifest in various ways, including rushing through tasks and acting without any consideration. Impulsivity may also manifest in the form of impatience such that you have a hard time waiting for your turn or always interrupt other people mid-speech.

Adult ADHD Diagnosis

A licensed physician runs a proper diagnosis before discussing treatment options with you. In most cases, a physician may recommend serotonin boosters. Other times you may find that you mostly benefit from a change in diet or exercise.

Adult ADHD Signs and Symptoms

The number of adult ADHD medications is overwhelming at best. The medication is also personal to every individual. Most people usually try to self medicate when they first realize they have the disorder. ADHD manifests in different forms and therefore self medicating might not be the best option to treat the type of ADHD you possibly have.

If your symptoms are severe, the doctor may prescribe medication as the best treatment method. The types of medications administered generally fall under two categories:

What Helps Adults With ADHD

Aside from medication, there are various ways adults can cope with ADHD. Therapy can help you and your loved ones learn more about your condition and find ways to better deal with the situation.

Talk therapy, such as cognitive-behavioral therapy, is a great way to help you learn how to control and change your actions and thoughts for increased quality of living. In addition, family therapy can allow you and your family members to talk things through and connect to spot any pattern that may lead to future issues.

What is the Prepayment/Refund policy?

You may bring everything you believe may help the doctor better understand your situation.

Are your services covered by insurance?

Unfortunately, our services are not covered by insurance at the moment. However, if you have an out-of-network provider coverage, we will be happy to provide you with all the required documentation (i.e., a detailed receipt with the diagnosis procedure codes) so that you can submit it to your insurance company for reimbursement. Also please note that we keep our prices as low as possible.

For cash-only patients: suggest to use a gift card/prepaid Master, Visa, Amex and Discover cards online, available in local stores. Patients can always pay cash in person at our clinics.

*We don’t accept PayPal for online payments.*

Will the prescription issued on the day of my appointment?

Most of the time medication will be prescribed on the day of the appointment, although, it is always up to a medical professional’s discretion as each case unique. There are many different variables involved, e.g., past medical history, certain medical conditions, active medications list, etc.

How many refills do I get?

Because most ADD and ADHD medications are considered Schedule II controlled substances, refills cannot be authorized, and the drug is prescribed for 30 days.

How often do I need to see a doctor?

Follow-up visits for patients being treated with controlled medications are every 30 days.

Do I always have to see the doctor in-person?

No, current regulations allow for telemedicine visits. You can speak with a medical provider from your home or office via a secure video line, provided you are in a private location and have consented to the use of telemedicine.

Can my medication be prescribed electronically?

Yes, we can transmit an electronic prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.

How much does the medication cost?

It all depends on the type of medication, its dosage and quantity, as well as your insurance plan if you are insured. We always have pharmacy discount coupons available to all patients.

What Causes ADHD?

There are several internal and external factors that may cause attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). Research suggests a strong link between ADHD and genetics, maternal substance abuse, premature birth, and early exposure to environmental toxins. In most cases, if a child is diagnosed with ADHD, their parents and siblings are more likely to have ADHD themselves.

What Are 3 Types of ADHD?

Although ADHD symptoms can overlap, there are three main subtypes/presentations of this condition:

  • Primary Impulsive/Hyperactive Type: This is the least common form of ADHD and is characterized by hyperactive and impulsive behaviors without inattention and distractibility.
  • Primary Inattentive and Distractible Type: This form of ADHD is characterized primarily by inattention and distractibility but without hyperactivity.
  • ADHD Combined Type: This is the most common form of ADHD and is characterized by hyperactive and impulsive behaviors as well as distractibility and inattention.
What Happens if ADHD Is Left Untreated?

People with ADHD tend to be impulsive and have a greater risk of getting injured, hospitalized, or contracting an STD. When left untreated, an adult with ADHD can experience significant problems with education, self-esteem, social and family relationships, employment, and emotional health. Fortunately, it is never too late to discover, diagnose, and treat ADHD plus any other mental health conditions associated with it.

Can a Child With ADHD Lead a Normal Life?

Children with ADHD exhibit severe and frequent behavioral problems that can interfere with their ability to live normal lives. More often, children with ADHD suffer low self-esteem and rejection, which can lead to delinquency, depression, and substance abuse later in life. However, proper care and medication can help minimize the symptoms of ADHD and improve quality of life.

What Is the Most Effective Treatment for ADHD?

Treatment for ADHD involves medication and behavioral therapy. Stimulants such as Concerta and Vyvanse are the best-known medication for ADHD in adults. Children are, however, given ADHD medication in smaller doses. Studies suggest that about 70-80% of children with ADHD exhibit fewer symptoms when taking these fast-acting medications.
