Can ADHD Be Cured?

Posted on October 19, 2010


One huge question about ADHD is: how to make it go away? Unfortunately, there is no actual cure for ADHD. There are many different types of treatment for ADHD, but no one solid resolution for the disorder. The most common treatment that your doctor will recommend is prescription medications. However, according to the article, “The Best ADHD Treatments for Kids” it is said that while these drugs do work for certain kids, for other kids, these drugs only make their symptoms worse. Because you cannot predict on how your child child will react to each type of drug, you are therefore left with having to try drug after drug which can be hard on your child. Some of the common side effect from prescription drugs include, nervousness and agitation, mood swings, sleeplessness, stomach problems and even aggression, which can leave your child feeling miserable.

Now because of the many disadvantages and cautions of taking prescription medications as a treatment, many parents and doctors all around the world are looking towards non-drug treatments and natural remedies that are made from plant-based ingredients like Arson Iod, Verta Alb and Hyoscyamus, which has shown proven effectiveness in clinical trials. The Better Health Channel gives other types of non-drug treatments such as cognitive therapy, behavior modification programs, diet adjustments, family counseling, and social and anger management training.

Now the big question is: which treatment is best for your child? Well it all depends on your child and how they react to each different kind of treatment. Some people prefer the medication route as they would rather go by all means to quickly reduce the child’s symptoms of hyperactivity and others would rather take the safer, but longer route of natural remedies and non-drug treatments. While others combine the two, using both medical stimulants and non-drug therapies, in which some believe is a greater success rate.

In my opinion, the only way you can decide which treatment works best for you is by the trial and error system. You won’t really know until you test it out for yourself.
