Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a mental health disorder that causes excessive hyperactivity and impulsivity. People with ADHD can also have difficulty concentrating on a particular task or being still for long periods of time. ADHD can affect both adults and children.

For many years, it was believed that children with ADD/ ADHD symptoms simply grew out of the problem by adulthood. However, new research has found that most children do not outgrow this disorder—many carry it with them into adulthood. In fact, more than 60% of those who were diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD in childhood will display at least some of the symptoms in adulthood. 

Though some of their symptoms may change as they age, they will still exhibit symptoms that could be disruptive to their lives. In addition, many adults with ADD/ADHD might never be diagnosed with this disorder in childhood so they may have no idea that the problems faced by them are due to the disorder. It is now believed that up to 4 percent of the United States adult population have ADD/ ADHD signs in some form.

Signs and Symptoms of ADD/ ADHD

ADD and ADHD affect approximately 1 in 25 adults, there are approximately 3 million cases of ADD and ADHD per year. Some common symptoms of ADD and ADHD include:

  • Feeling Anxious
  • Constant Lack of Organization
  • Sudden Outbursts
  • Obsessive Activity
  • Mood Swings
  • Impulsive Activity
  • Inability to Manage Time
  • Passive Behavior
  • Restlessness

Types of ADHD

ADHD can be divided into three types:

  • Inattentive Type
  • Hyperactive-Impulsive Type
  • Combined Type

Medications for ADD/ ADHD

It’s quite difficult to successfully self-medicate if you have ADD/ ADHD, though some people attempt this when they first suspect they have the disorder. Due to the different types of ADD/ ADHD, a proper diagnosis must be made before treatment options can be discussed. In some cases, serotonin boosters may help while others benefit from a change in diet or increased exercise.

However, if the symptoms are serious enough, prescription medication is the best method of treatment for those with ADD/ ADHD. It may take a few different tries before the proper type of medication and dosage is determined and all prescription medications should be administered and monitored by a medical professional.

Some of the common medications used for ADD/ ADHD treatment are:

  • Adderall – Adderall is a stimulant drug that combines amphetamine with dextroamphetamine to speed up the brain and increases dopamine levels.
  • Concerta – Concerta is a stimulant drug similar to Adderall though its active ingredient methylphenidate is different. Concerta is only available in a slow-release tablet.
  • Vyvanse – Vyvanse is a stimulant drug that is similar to Adderall but uses the active ingredient lisdexamfetamine. Some believe it to be less addictive than Adderall and is taken once in a day.
  • Ritalin – Ritalin is a stimulant that uses the active ingredient methylphenidate to treat those with ADD/ ADHD. Ritalin is more fast-acting than Adderall.
  • Dexedrine – Dexedrine is a psychostimulant drug used to treat ADHD. It works by increasing the number of neurotransmitters in the brain by affecting the central nervous system.
  • Strattera – Strattera is a medication that inhibits the reuptake of norepinephrine in the brain. Strattera can help patients with ADHD improve their focus while also reducing impulsivity and hyperactivity.

When Is the Prescription for ADHD Issued?

Most of the time, prescriptions for ADHD will be issued on the day of the appointment, but it’s up to a medical professional’s discretion as each case is unique. The variables involved in issuing an ADHD prescription are; past medical history, certain medical conditions, active medications list, etc.

What Is Your Policy for Refills?

Prescriptions for Schedule II controlled substances cannot be refilled, and most ADHD medications are considered Schedule II controlled substances. The drug is prescribed for 30 days.

How Often Do I Need to See a Doctor for ADHD?

You need to do the follow-up visits if you are being treated with controlled medications every 30 days.

Do I Always Have to See the Doctor for ADHD in-person?

Not anymore! 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

Can My Medication for ADHD Be Prescribed Electronically?

Yes. The electronic prescribing network allows connected providers to send an electronic prescription to the pharmacy of their choice.

How Much Does the Medication for ADHD Cost?

The cost of ADHD medication depends on the type of drugs you are consuming and its quantity, dosage, and insurance plan in case you are insured.
We always have pharmacy discount coupons available for all the patients.

What Are the Leading Causes of ADHD?

Many internal and external factors cause ADHD. As far as internal factors are concerned, genetics and hereditary are deciding factors for ADHD. In contrast, smoking, alcohol use or exposure to toxins serve as the external factors.
In most cases, if a child is diagnosed with ADHD, their parents and siblings are more likely to have ADHD themselves.

What Are the 3 Major Types of ADHD?

The three ADHD types are:

  • Inattentive type: getting distracted, having low concentration and organizational skills.
  • Hyperactive-impulsive type: constantly interrupting and risk-taking behaviour.
  • Combination type: a combination of inattentive and hyperactive types.
What Happens if You Don’t Treat ADHD?

Untreated ADHD in adults leads to significant educational, social, family, relationships, and employment issues. This in result hurts self-esteem and damages emotional health.

Untreated kids sometimes don’t learn impulse control, emotional regulation, and social skills. As adults, they can sometimes fall behind the curve and don’t always catch up.

What Is the Most Effective Treatment for ADHD?

Treatment for ADHD involves medication and behavioural 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.

However, behavioural therapy for ADHD focuses on replacing negative thoughts and energy with positive vibes and emotions. It is most effective in young children when parents participate as well.
