Parental Criticism May Worsen ADHD Symptoms, Devon Frye, ADDitude Magazine


ADHD and the Epidemic of Shame, William Dodson, M.D., ADDitude Magazine


The most frequently asked questions we have received over the years from parents and adults with ADHD is whether or not to use medications in the treatment of ADHD. It is a tough decision because no one wants to take medication if they don’t have to. You have the right to have questions and concerns. Our organization has the policy that we will never advise anyone with ADHD to use or not to use medication. We believe that decision is personal and private between the parents and their physician or the adults and their physician. We encourage you to read and learn about the different medication options in treating ADHD and to discuss all of your concerns and questions with your physician.
