Health Tip: Taking ADHD Medications

(HealthDay News) -- Medications prescribed to treat Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) may effectively manage symptoms, but they can also cause a number of side effects.

The American Academy of Family Physicians offers these suggestions to minimize side effects caused by ADHD drugs:
  • Take only the minimal dose necessary to control your symptoms. Speak with your doctor about determining the right dose for you.
  • If you have stomach upset, take your ADHD meds with food.
  • As long as your doctor says it's OK, consider the weekend "drug-free days" when you can skip your medication.
  • If ADHD meds cause undesired weight loss, add healthy snacks to the day's menu.
