ADHD can affect children and adults and when it is left unmanaged,
you might find that it becomes incredibly difficult to focus and
function throughout the day. ADHD is a mental health disorder that
makes it difficult to pay attention and includes hyperactivity and
impulsive behavior. After being diagnosed with ADHD, there are many
ways that our doctor might suggest managing your condition. Each
person reacts differently to ADHD and has different severities of the
condition so it’s important to find what works best for you.
Dealing with ADHD
When it comes to treating ADHD, there are many options. It will depend on what your symptoms are and how your body reacts to each treatment. Our psychiatrist Dr. Germaine Hawkins might recommend trying a few different treatments to see what could work best for you. There are different medications that your doctor might recommend. These are stimulants and non-stimulants. Stimulants help stimulate the brain and relax some of the symptoms you experience. Both medications can help focus your brain and help you easily achieve tasks.
There are also supplements that can help you treat your ADHD. This can help with neurotransmitter imbalances that might be causing your ADHD.
PrTMS, or personalized repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation, is a treatment that is personalized to your specific needs. Our doctor will collect data so that they can correct your brainwaves and create an image where you have improvements in your neuronal communication activity.
For anyone over the age of 10, neurofeedback therapy could be beneficial. This is a non-invasive procedure that measures your brainwaves and gives feedback on how your brain is functioning. Therapy can also be beneficial because it gives you a space to voice concerns and create schedules that can help your brain function as it should.
