It involves the use of medications (drugs), talking therapy (counseling), and a healthy lifestyle (certain rituals or practices).

There are usually two types of drugs for treating Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They are stimulants and non-stimulants.
- Stimulants: These ADHD drugs take effect within hours of administration. They are the more common type of ADHD drugs. They work for about 70% of ADHD cases.
- Non-Stimulants: These are the less popular ADHD drugs. Unlike stimulants, it takes days before they begin to take effect. They are usually an alternative to cases where stimulant drugs do not work. They work for about 30% of ADHD cases.

Talking about side effects, there are certain symptoms that come with a stoppage or overdose of this drug. I will be listing some of the side effects next.
