ADD Adult Medication
Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) starts in childhood and its symptoms usually decrease with age. Some adults do not require medication at this stage but others do.
Most ADD medications are targeted to children but some are now branching out to deal with adults as well. Some adults take the drugs Ritalin, Dextrostat and Adderall the same as children do.
When dealing with ADD adult medication, doctors must consider various differences between children and adults. Adults are larger than children, they may not have the same quality of liver and kidney function as children, the medication can last longer in an adult’s system and adults are more likely to be taking other medications. For these reasons, an adult may actually need to take a smaller dose per pound of medication.
