Medication is often a necessary part of the treatment plan for Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and other associated conditions, such as anxiety and depression. Because the symptoms of AD/HD result from biochemical differences in the brain, medications which adjust the chemical balance can improve functioning significantly.
In many cases, symptoms of AD/HD can be alleviated with medication. However, all medications have associated risks and benefits. It is important to discuss the pros and cons with your doctor in order to determine if medication is the right choice for you.
