ADHD Medication Side Effects - Answers You Must Have

Author: Robert William Locke

Let's face it. There are ADHD medication side effects so let us have a look at them and see whether it is really worth all the time and effort and see how your ADHD child can fit into this treatment picture.

Fidgeting and constant motion are well known symptoms of ADHD. Will ADHD medications improve this problem? It seems that research from the University of Central Florida found that when we ask ADHD kids to concentrate on a task, they fidgeted a lot more than boys who did not have ADHD. Squirming of course can be a relatively irritating problem especially in the classroom. Actually the ADHD medications can help to calm children down and they can become quieter and stay focused. The downside of all this is that maybe up to 20% of children on ADHD drugs just cannot take them and are overwhelmed by the unwanted effects of ADHD medications. It is true that some side effects are very minor while others are more serious.

If the doctor or paediatrician are doing their job properly, they will assess your family medical history and that of the child before prescribing these drugs. Side effects of ADHD medications can range from insomnia and sleep disorders, weight loss, loss of appetite and irritability. In certain subjects already susceptible to depression, there could even be an increase in suicide thoughts and also heart problems have to be carefully monitored.

Side effects or not, there are other important things to consider when deciding about ADHD medication for your child. How will your child grow up ? If he is aggressive now, violent, lying, impulsive and hyperactive, do you really think that ADHD meds are going to solve these problems like a magic wand and your child is suddenly a grown, responsible, caring well balanced adult. Dream on!

While AHD medications can help solve the immediate symptoms of fidgeting, attention and concentration , there are problems relating to self control, coping mechanisms and social relationships with peers and figures in authority. How is all this going to pan out ? Will the ADHD medications side effects distract the anxious parent who cannot see the wood for the trees? Experts now assure us that without ADHD behaviour therapy, there is little point in pursuing with ADHD medications as they are just a temporary fix.

Back to side effects. Many parents are now turning to natural homeopathic remedies because there are no side effects while ADHD medications side effects can be damaging and long term. That really is the best approach to take and together with ADHD behavioral therapy , your child can sail through ADHD.
