ADHD/ADD Medications

What Are They? . . . How Do I Decide Whether or Not to Use Them with My Child?

by Peter Levine, M.D. and Helen F. Neville, B.S., R.N.

What is the best way to help children who have ADHD/ADD?

There is no “best” way because every child is unique and every child’s family is different.

Many parents are curious, and sometimes concerned, about the use of medication to help their child. If you are looking for more information, this book can help you. Its authors are medical professionals with decades of experience working with children who have ADHD/ADD.

ADHD/ADD Medications: What Are They? . . . How Do I Decide Whether or Not to Use Them with My Child? is a short book covering only one aspect of raising a child who has ADHD/ADD. It can help you decide whether or not to use medication by explaining clearly and simply—

  • ADHD/ADD behavior and common problems in a nutshell
  • a typical process of prescribing and monitoring the use of medication
  • the various medications and how they affect the child
  • pros and cons of medication holidays
  • an approach to looking into the future for your child if you decide on medication

A major benefit of having information when you need it is peace of mind in your decisions. The authors are enthusiastic about providing the basics in a short book you can read quickly, and also refer to when needed.
