ADHD MEDICATION

Dr. Wikus Venter, MD

Medication options should be discussed with your family physician

   

 Stimulant medications and atomoxetine are the most effective treatments we have available for ADHD with the largest evidence base Their safety is incredibly well established They improve 70-90 % of clinical cases, normalizing 50-60% of such cases They are convenient to administer, with the least effort required relative to other non-medical treatments, especially the once-daily delivery systems. They can be used for years, even into adulthood.
