Ritalin-for-ADHD.jpg

What Is Ritalin and Who Is It For?

Ritalin (a brand name for methylphenidate) is primarily for patients who have ADHD or narcolepsy, two disorders that can be treated with stimulants. For those with ADHD, they have issues such as restlessness and being unable to focus, which can prevent them from doing work or maintaining relationships. It can also be disruptive, in case it gets in the way of things such as work and social events. Luckily, Ritalin has proven to significantly help those with ADHD, as it treats and improves their symptoms for the better.

Narcolepsy is the other main disorder that Ritalin is recommended for treating. This disorder can leave a person exhausted throughout the day, wanting to sleep all the time, and in some cases, falling asleep where it can be least appropriate (like during a meeting). Ritalin has been proven to help those with narcolepsy, as it treats the symptoms associated and allows the user to remain more productive throughout the day.

What Are Stimulants?

If you are looking for a stimulant such as Ritalin to help improve your health, then get in touch with Mango Clinic Miami. Helping local and remote patients alike, we provide health services that let people live their best life in a relaxed and accessible way. Ritalin can help patients with ADHD and narcolepsy who want to treat symptoms that range from minor to severe. As a legal prescription drug that can be prescribed to many people, Ritalin comes with various benefits, along with risks and side-effects, that are important to know.

With the stress of life almost always hanging over us, it can be difficult for some to stay concentrated and focused on the things that matter most to us. Sometimes things get in the way, whether they are physical obstructions or mental roadblocks. Certain people even have disorders that prevent them from being the best version of themselves. Sometimes they admit to having these disorders, other times they have denied them for years. The issues individuals have will always vary, and there are always optimal solutions for treating them.

How Does Ritalin Work?

You might be curious to know how a stimulant such as Ritalin is able to help those with ADHD and narcolepsy. While we do not have to get too in-depth, the main components involve our brains and its neurotransmitters. Those asking to get Ritalin often have a brain that is looking for an activity and is lacking it for whatever reason. The stimulant goes to the brain’s reward center and gets it to release dopamine, which provides stimulation in the brain, which makes it active.

Like most other stimulants, you do not have to be suffering from ADHD or narcolepsy in order to take Ritalin. As a legal and prescribable drug, it has found itself as a popular choice for many who suffer from stress (only based on anecdotal reports) and lack of concentration. Students, in particular, have found themselves as users of this medication, as it has been shown to help with focus and alert thinking. While some may think much of this has to do with recreational use, it has been shown that students who take methylphenidate are genuinely interested in performance enhancement. Unlike Concerta, which is also methylphenidate and its extended-release variation, Ritalin starts working almost immediately and only works for a few hours so you can take it later in the day without any fear of insomnia as a side effect.

Ritalin Risks

While drugs like Ritalin provide users with beneficial effects that improve their health, there are still risks involved. Medication already comes with side-effects, so this is not surprising; in any case, it is still important for users to know of these effects. Some of these physical effects can include hypertension, nausea, sexual dysfunction, dry mouth, and blurry vision. These are just a few of the many side-effects that can occur if you take Ritalin, though many of them are not that common, with some of the most severe ones being extremely rare.

Aside from common physical symptoms, side-effects can also be psychological, which can sometimes be an even greater problem than physical symptoms. Anxiety and insomnia are, ironically, some of the common psychological effects that a user of Ritalin can endure. It’s also possible that a user can have a greater sense of alertness than is normal, which might make them even more restless than before they took the medication. Users may also find their libidos and self-confidence diminish, which can be a problem that does not improve matters for someone being treated with Ritalin.

In addition to side-effects, stimulants have a chance of being abused by users, which can then lead to tolerance, dependence, and even overdosing. Tolerance can happen because a user takes too much of their dosage, and their body has become accustomed to it. While it might make sense to increase your dosage if this happens, it can be problematic if the user exhibits dependent traits. If increasing the dosage would only worsen the conditions of the user and their drug use, then it is not recommended and should stop immediately taking the drug.

Dependence can sometimes contribute to tolerance, which can make the treatment process with Ritalin more harmful than helpful. It also has ties with addiction, which is essentially what happens to those who abuse their prescriptions and take more of the drug than they are supposed to. While addiction is already a problem, it can also lead to an even greater issue, which is overdosing. This is a problem that can affect users of prescription medication, as many people over the years have overdosed on these types of drugs. It’s not unusual to hear about users who abuse their prescription meds and then end up in the emergency room due to an overdose. While it does not happen to everyone, the legality and ease of access make it a more significant possibility among patients.

Concerta-for-ADHD.jpg

ADHD Medications: Concerta (Methylphenidate)

What Are Stimulants?

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help patients from all walks of life, whether you’re remote or a local South Floridian. If you are suffering from ADHD/ADD, we can help you get properly evaluated and prescribed by one of our licensed physicians. There are many benefits to being prescribed an ADHD medication with Concerta being one of them, as it can treat a range of symptoms and specific disorders. However, it is important that you understand the risks involved, as well as the benefits and ways that make stimulants work as well as they do for patients the world over.

Life is full of ups and downs, and we do not always have the time to take care of ourselves properly. Even if we make strides in making sure we are healthy, certain things about our health may be hard to notice or take care of. In some cases, it is possible that there is something wrong with us that we have become accustomed to or we do not want to admit to. Sometimes these feelings, whatever they may be, have been with the person for years, and it hasn’t been a disruption to their daily life until recently.

What is Concerta?

Some people who have these sorts of issues end up having ADHD, which can be treated with Concerta, which is a brand name for the generic methylphenidate. Those with ADHD are prone to being highly distracted in nearly any environment, which can be a big problem at work and with friends and family. This can also mean they are restless and unable to stay still, which can be highly disruptive for the individual, as well as others, therefore, ADHD treatment is oftentimes not optional. Whether the person has had it since childhood, or if it only recently has come into the person’s life, it is wise to get it treated. A lack of concentration and inability to focus is not good for most, but Concerta is able to treat this disorder with great success.

Another disorder that can be treated with Concerta is narcolepsy, which may not be as common as ADHD, but can be just as problematic. A sleeping disorder, individuals with narcolepsy are prone to feeling exhausted throughout the day and in need of sleep on a frequent basis. The most famous symptom of narcolepsy is falling asleep at random, often in places where it is less appropriate, like a board meeting or family gathering. Concerta has proven itself to be an effective treatment option for those with narcolepsy, allowing patients to live better as a result.

Concerta (Methylphenidate)
Concerta is a stimulant drug.

Concerta works in much the way similar stimulants do, in that it stimulates the brain and releases dopamine. When the brain is under extreme duress, such as in ADHD cases, it is craving stimulation that it cannot get otherwise, which is further exacerbated by the lack of dopamine flow. Your neurotransmitters are not acting as they should, and this is causing the brain to have a bad time, which results in an individual being restless and lacking focus. By stimulating the brain and releasing dopamine, your brain gets the activity it so desperately wants, allowing you to regain your focus and stay concentrated, along with more alert.

Concerta Types

Concerta specifically is unique among stimulants as it only really comes in one variety, which is extended-release. It can last for up to 12 hours, which usually means taking one dose per day, or a least once every 12 hours (which usually means once a day for most people). Due to its stronger and longer-lasting effects, it can be recommended for patients who want a powerful stimulant. For that reason, it may not be recommended to all; those with severe ADHD and narcolepsy symptoms might prefer Concerta or similar.

You do not need to have ADHD or narcolepsy to be legally prescribed Concerta, as long as you qualify for the stimulant under the conditions required. A variety of symptoms, ranging from anxiety to stress, can qualify a person to be prescribed Concerta, as it will allow the person to regain their calm. This is why stimulants are so popular with college students, as they are able to keep their focus and concentration with drugs like Concerta. While it is easy to assume that many are interested in stimulants for recreational purposes, it has been shown many take the drug for legal and legitimate purposes related to mental enhancement.

Concerta Side-Effects

For all the benefits that taking Concerta provides, there are also side-effects that should be kept in mind. While there are common ones, such as hypertension, nausea, dry mouth, and sexual dysfunction, there are also psychological side-effects which can be just as problematic. Some of these, though not as common, include anxiety and insomnia, as well as a decrease in self-confidence and libido.

Some of the more serious risks involved with Concerta are tolerance and dependence. If you take too much Concerta at a time, your body can become used to the drug, creating a tolerance that decreases the effects of the drug. This can make the user think they need to be taking more of the drug, which can then lead to dependence on the user. This dependence can easily be translated into addiction, which can turn deadly if the user takes too many pills and overdoses. Overdoses on stimulants are not unusual and can be a real risk if you become addicted to Concerta. This is why people with a history of drug abuse and addiction are not recommended to take stimulants, as it can lead to more problems than solutions.

Taking Concerta can help many people, and if you think you would benefit from it or any other type of stimulant, get in touch with Mango Clinic. Our staff of medical professionals will evaluate your situation, figure out the best medication and dosage, and provide you with a prescription you can take to your local pharmacy.

Prescription-Medications_-Focalin.jpg

ADHD Treatment and Medications: Focalin

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help all types of patients with a variety of health services. This includes getting prescriptions for Focalin, methylphenidate which can help people who have ADHD/ADD, narcolepsy, or other related ailments. We at Mango Clinic understand each patient has their own individual needs and circumstances, which is why we want to make sure our patients understand the benefits of Focalin, who is allowed to be prescribed it, and what to look out for in case you decide this drug is right for you.

Who Is Focalin For?

If you find yourself having trouble concentrating at work, with friends, or even on your own time, you are not alone. This is something that happens to many people, and in some cases, this is an issue they have had to deal with for most of their lives. While it can be one thing to have trouble focusing as a child or teenager, when it comes to adulthood, having a family, and holding a full-time job, it can be a major problem. It can get to the point that the person in question is unable to get their work done, is being disruptive to their work environment, or their relationships with coworkers, friends, and family are not as healthy as they once were.

People with ADHD, whether severe or minor, understand that an inability to stay focused and concentrated can be extremely troublesome for them and those around them. With ADHD, a person can often be very restless, have trouble staying still, and become easily frustrated. This can be detrimental to a person’s work and family life, but drugs like Focalin (dexmethylphenidate hydrochloride) allow them to return to a life of normalcy. With this drug, a person with ADD/ADHD will find their focus restored, they become more alert, and their concentration is back to where it is productive.

Focalin is also recommended to people who have narcolepsy. Narcolepsy is a sleeping disorder where the person who has it will find themselves wanting to go to sleep during their regular waking hours. Even if they have had a full night’s sleep, and they should otherwise be full of energy, they will not be and may want to take naps often during the day. This can then lead to the most infamous symptom of narcolepsy, which is falling asleep during the day at random points. Be it during work, when hanging out with friends, or while you’re going for a walk; narcolepsy can cause people to fall asleep at all the wrong times. Focalin is able to provide users with the relief they need to live a healthier life, giving them the energy they need to stay awake.

How Does Focalin Work?

Drugs like Focalin work the way they do by helping the brain and body’s neurotransmitters act more as they should. By targeting the brain, Focalin is able to help it release dopamine, something that is not happening in most people who would be having symptoms that could be treated by Focalin. In this state, the brain is craving all the attention and activity it can get, but it, unfortunately, cannot achieve this, causing it not to act how it should. By releasing dopamine into the body, a person with these symptoms will be able to regain their focus, concentration, and alertness. By giving the brain the activity it so desperately needed, the mind is able to relax again and work just as it should.

Focalin is a stimulant drug used to treat ADHD and narcolepsy

While very helpful for ADHD and narcolepsy, Focalin can be very helpful for other people, too. You don’t have to have one of these two disorders in order to be prescribed the drug, just as long as you fall under the qualifications necessary. If you feel you might qualify, all you have to do is set up an appointment to speak with your licensed physician, who will then be able to better determine whether you do or don’t qualify.

This is part of what makes Focalin so appealing to students since the drug is able to keep them focused and concentrated when they might otherwise be stressed and distracted. College can be an overwhelmingly hard time for some, and it can be easy to lose track of dates and assignments. With Focalin, students are able to keep their focus and concentration among the many deadlines, classes, tests, and essays that need to be met or attended to. While it is easy to think a college student is mainly focused on the recreational aspects of Focalin, it has been shown that many of these students do in fact take the drug as intended.

Focalin Risks

Making sure you take Focalin responsibly is essential, as it can be very easy to abuse these sorts of ADHD prescription drugs. While there are common side-effects associated with Focalin, not many people know of the other ways a prescription drug can be dangerous, and that mainly involves tolerance and dependence.

Call Mango Clinic today for your appointment

If your body becomes tolerant to your current prescription, you may become tempted to call up your doctor and increase your dosage. This is something you can do, but you have to be careful that it does result in further tolerance and dependence. Once you become dependent, you increase your risk of abusing the drug to the point where you might be taking too much. When you take too much of a prescription drug, you can find yourself coming close to overdosing. Abuse in the case of prescription drugs is not uncommon, so be sure this is not the case with you if you decide you want to be prescribed Focalin.

Contact us here at Mango Clinic if you would like to speak with a licensed doctor about Focalin or other prescription drugs. Our medical staff will be able to speak with you and help you understand what the best options are for you, including drug types and dosage.

Dexedrine.jpg

ADHD Treatment and Medications: Dexedrine

Mango Clinic Miami can help you get the help you need with your ADHD/ADD treatment and medications such as Dexedrine. We offer a variety of health services for people young and old, whether it’s emotional support animal letters, weight loss, or anxiety. Making sure every one of our patients is in good health and being taken care of is what we strive for. This is why we think it is vital for people to know about amphetamines, what they do, who they are for, and the risks involved, before deciding to be prescribed.

There is a lot of stress that can come our way, whether we are at work or just enjoying a nice time out with friends. The reasons behind this stress or anxiety are not always known to us, and we can become very nervous or anxious due to how we are feeling. Some people have always had these feelings since childhood, and for others, they have only just recently come up in adulthood. It can be frustrating not knowing exactly what is happening, or why we feel a certain way all of a sudden. It can be even more frustrating for those who have always had these symptoms but have never truly confronted a way to take care of them.

What Is Dexedrine?

Among the disorders that can be treated with Dexedrine (or dextroamphetamine) is ADHD/ADD. Known to cause high stress, anxiety, and frustration, ADHD is a disorder that is characterized by an inability to stay calm and focused. Those with ADHD are prone to being restless, wanting to always be doing something active, and having an overwhelmingly difficult time concentrating on any one thing, let alone many things. This can be detrimental to not only the individual with ADHD, but those around them, whether they be coworkers, family members, friends, or romantic partners.

Dexedrine can also help those who are suffering from narcolepsy, which is a sleeping disorder. Its most common symptoms are feeling extremely exhausted throughout the day, as well as wanting to go to sleep multiple times in the day. The most famous symptom associated with narcolepsy is falling asleep during the day or at random points during the day. This is, in fact, a very real symptom of narcolepsy, as one with the disorder could find themselves falling asleep during a business meeting or when being out with friends.

How Does Dexedrine Work?

Dexedrine is an ADHD Drug
Common ADD-ADHD Drugs

You might be curious as to how a drug like Dexedrine is able to work its magic so well. There are much science intricacies at work, but the simplest illustration is that the drug from the amphetamine family; it visits the neurotransmitters in your brain and makes it release dopamine. At its current state, the brain is not releasing dopamine, which causes the brain to be extremely restless, resulting in the symptoms associated with ADHD. By helping the brain release dopamine, activity is actually occurring in the brain, which then allows it to regain its calm, now that it has been granted the activity it was so badly craving earlier.

With Dexedrine, a user is able to regain their concentration, become alert, and once again, stay focused, which can help someone who has ADHD/ADD or narcolepsy. But Dexedrine is not just for people with those specific disorders. If you happen to be having serious trouble staying focused, concentrating, or staying alert, Dexedrine could greatly benefit you. As long as you qualify to legally be prescribed the drug, there is no reason why you could not make an appointment with your local physician to be evaluated. The legality and helpfulness of Dexedrine is a big reason why college students are fond of taking amphetamine-based stimulants, as they are able to stay focused and concentrated in a high-stress environment. While some might think college-aged individuals are mainly interested in the drug recreationally, many will attest that they use it for legitimate purposes.

Dexedrine Risks and Side-Effects

Dexedrine does provide significant benefits, but there also substantial risks involved that every potential user should keep in mind. The most known among these risks are side-effects, which come with every type of legal amphetamine being sold and prescribed. These side-effects can include nausea, dry mouth, sexual dysfunction, and blurred vision. However, those are only physical symptoms, as there are also psychological symptoms that can come into play. These can include further anxiety and insomnia, as well as delusions and lack of confidence. It may seem odd to consider, but these drugs can negatively impact your mental well-being. If you find your mental health is being adversely affected, tell your doctor.

One other thing to keep in mind is that these drugs are also well known for causing addiction in some patients, which can lead to overdosing on medication. Addiction stems from dependence, which can start with a body’s tolerance for the drug the user is taking. It is possible that, at some point, your body has become so accustomed to the drug that the effects no longer work. Some users might then decide to increase their dosage, which could lead to dependence, meaning you find yourself needing to take the drug more often. Once you find yourself addicted, it can be challenging to stop, and if it goes too far, you could end up overdosing. While this sort of thing does not happen to every amphetamine user, it does happen at a high enough rate that many potential users should be aware of the possible risks.

If you think you are suffering from ADHD/ADD don’t wait, get in touch with Mango Clinic for treatment. Our licensed staff of medical professionals will be able to help you get the right medication you need, what to look out for, dosage amounts, and which drugs are right for you. We understand each patient has their own unique reasons for wanting medication, so we make sure to treat each patient carefully and with understanding.

ADD-ADHD-Medications_-Vyvanse-lisdexamfetamine.jpg

ADD/ADHD Medications: Vyvanse (lisdexamfetamine)

Mango Clinic Miami is here to help potential patients find the right medication they need to improve their health. Our medical staff can assist all types of patients seeking stimulants that can help them live a better life. Vyvanse is one such stimulant that can help people who may have ADHD, eating disorder, or another ailment that can be treated with the drug. While a helpful ADHD treatment prescription drug, it is important to know what the drug does, who it is for, the benefits, and the side-effects.

For many, life can provide plenty of great things, but it can also cause unwanted stress. Whether it’s work, family, friendships, or relationships, there is plenty of reason to be stressed for one reason or another. Unfortunately for some, this stress can affect one’s life in such an extreme way that they become less productive and stable. Some people find themselves with symptoms that prevent them from completing work or doing things they want to do, which can be severely damaging to one’s life.

What Is Vyvanse?

ADHD/ADD is a disorder that can bring with it symptoms of being unproductive and maybe even less stable than you once were. While it is common for patients to have had ADHD since childhood, it can still develop in adults. Vyvanse is able to treat ADHD symptoms that cause people to lose focus; through taking this medication, a patient will find themselves feeling relief that will allow them to take the next steps towards full recovery.

ADHD is not the only thing patients can use Vyvanse for, as it has a variety of uses that makes it versatile for all patients. If you exhibit similar symptoms of stress, lack of focus, exhaustion, adrenal fatigue, and the like, you can be prescribed Vyvanse legally from a licensed doctor. All you have to do is set up an appointment to speak with a licensed doctor who can evaluate you. From there, you explain to them why it is you think would benefit from having Vyvanse or another type of stimulant.

Vyvanse effects
What is Vyvanse and how it works

How Does Vyvanse Work?

Vyvanse, like other stimulants, works by entering your body and targeting your brain’s reward center, which will then allow it to release dopamine. This is vital, as dopamine enables the brain to function as it should, which means a more functioning and productive person. The neurotransmitters in the brain work to provide, as the drug name implies, stimulation to the mind, which will allow for a tighter focus on behalf of the user. By giving the brain the stimulation it craves, the body and mind become alert and properly energized. This translates to a patient being able to stay focused and less restless than they were before, making it a prime prescription drug for treating ADHD and related ailments.

Due to these positive benefits of brain stimulation, drugs like Vyvanse become quite popular with all types of people and not just those that might be who have ADD/ADHD. If you find yourself with overwhelming stress, you can check with your licensed doctor and see if you qualify for stimulants. It can be a very popular legal drug among students, who find themselves unable to handle the pressures of school properly. Due to their legal status and general ease of access, stimulants are available to many people who are able to qualify for a prescription. While this is mostly a good thing, since it means more people are able to receive helpful medication, it can also be a problem in some circumstances, though not usually.

Vyvanse Risks

While drugs like stimulants are very helpful, it is always essential to understand the risks that go along with them. You should not be taking a stimulant if you are not aware of the possible dangers behind taking the drug, as they can be quite severe depending on the individual. The side-effects associated with Vyvanse include hypertension, erectile dysfunction, nausea, dry mouth, loss of appetite, blurred vision, and muscle spasms. These effects can be unfortunate for anyone, but it is especially problematic for those who already have severe anxiety and stress.

Vyvanse Side-Effects

Physical side-effects are important, but just as vital are side-effects which are psychological in nature. Stimulants are already trying to work on your brain, so having an additional mental issue is the last thing you want happening. Increased alertness and concentration are among the side-effects, which means being even more focused and energized than you should be. You can also find yourself having more significant anxiety, insomnia, restlessness, and lack of confidence, all of which can have an adverse effect on your treatment. The psychological effects of a stimulant can be a major problem, so make sure any and all side-effects are reported to your doctor.

Side-effects are a common thing that has become a well-known disclaimer when advertising prescription drugs. However, there is more to these drugs than just common side-effects; you can also become dependent, tolerant of, and addicted to Vyvanse. The tolerance comes from taking the drug in large enough quantities that their effect is no longer working. If this happens, you might want to simply increase your dosage, but it might depend on how you are handling the current dosage. This is where dependence and addiction come in; it is well-known that users can become addicted to their medication, and stimulants are no different. Those with addictive histories or personalities are usually not recommended to take stimulants for these reasons.

If you are interested in Vyvanse or any other medication for your ADD/ADHD treatment and understand the benefits and risks, then contact us at Mango Clinic to schedule your appointment. You will speak with a licensed physician who will help you understand how stimulants work and which one would be best for you. After an evaluation, you will decide on a type of medication and dosage, which you will be able to pick up at your local pharmacy. You can make your appointment today by calling us at 786-391-0269 or by visiting our website’s appointment page.

ADD vs ADHD: What’s the Difference?

More than 11% of children and 4.4% of adults in the United States are living with a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). However, many do not know what the difference is between the two disorders and how this affects their treatment options.

To put it simply, ADD is the old name for what is now commonly known as ADHD. Though it is now the official medical term for the condition, many of those with ADHD do not have the ‘hyperactivity’ that is stated right in the name.

 

Recognizing the Different Types of ADHD

Symptoms of ADD/ADHD
Potential Indicators of ADD/ADHD

Though ADD and ADHD do not actually refer to two separate disorders, it is important to recognize that there are different types of ADHD that present with a variety of symptoms. Some of these symptoms, such as spaceyness or mean outbursts, are sometimes not easily recognizable as being part of ADHD.

The DSM-V recognizes three different types of ADHD: Primarily Inattentive, Primarily Hyperactive-Impulsive, or Combined. Those with Inattentive ADHD tend to have trouble sustaining attention, seem not to listen when spoken to, avoid tasks that require sustained effort, and often lose things they need to complete a task. More girls and women are diagnosed with this type of ADHD than boys or men.

Primarily Hyperactive-Impulsive ADHD sufferers are fidgety, talk excessively, have difficulty playing with others, often interrupt, and have trouble sitting still. This is usually the type we think of when we consider a boy or even an adult having ADHD. Combined ADHD is diagnosed when at least six symptoms from Inattentive and from Hyperactive-Impulsive are present.

Though many in the healthcare profession use the three types of ADHD to diagnose and treat their patients, more research has proves that there are actually seven different types of ADHD, all with slightly different symptoms. These range from Temporal Lobe ADHD, which is characterized by memory or learning problems as well as aggression or paranoia; Anxious ADHD which presents as chronic stress or tension along with stomach problems and headaches; and Over-Focused ADHD, which has symptoms of repetitive thoughts, resistance to change, and difficulty shifting attention when needed.

 

Different Treatment for Different TypesADD/ ADHD Treatment in Miami

If you or your loved one has ADHD, it’s crucial to know which type you suffer from so you can get the proper treatment. While stimulants can effectively treat the classic types of ADHD, it can actually have a negative effect on those with Over-Focused or Anxious ADHD. Anti-depressants may prove effective for treating Over-Focused ADHD, but could have little effect in Inattentive or Classic ADHD. In addition, a low carbohydrate diet can help some forms of ADHD while aggravating others.

 

What You Need to Know for a Diagnosis

Though those with Classic ADHD can often diagnose themselves as they fall into the ‘typical’ range of symptoms, those with others types of less common ADHD may have trouble realizing they suffer from the disorder. Whether or not you have successfully self-diagnosed your condition, it’s important that you see a medical professional who has experience recognizing and treating the disorder. It’s also important that the professional works with adult ADHD as the condition can look much different in adults than in children and needs to be treated correctly.

If you have been living with adult ADHD, you may have been told for years that you’re lazy, lack motivation, or even have a learning disability. Recognizing that you may suffer from one of the many forms of ADHD can come as a huge relief to those who thought it was ‘just them’ and that they just needed to ‘try harder’. If you believe you may suffer from ADHD, please call our Miami clinic at (305) 776-2898 to schedule an appointment.
