The importance of being proactive and well-informed when prescribed a new medication cannot be overstated. Asking the right questions can help you better understand the medication’s purpose, how to take it correctly, and what results to expect. If medication is not a palatable option, ask whether there are alternatives.
For some, ADHD medication can help reduce symptoms such as inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity, allowing individuals to focus better, be less impulsive, and complete tasks more efficiently. However, medication does not cure ADHD and may not work for everyone. Monitoring symptoms and tracking progress are essential to determine whether the medication is effective.
