About The Meeting: 

Despite efforts to diversify, medication is still part of ADHD treatment. Along with questions about it: 
 
Which symptoms are often targeted? What therapeutic effects might be hoped for?
 
What side effects have been reported? At what point should you expect an adjustment?
 
Which medications are commonly used? In what preparations are these available?
 
Can they be combined? If separate ailments have been diagnosed, how might this factor into a treatment plan?
 
Is there an age limit on medication use? Are there physical conditions that could interfere? Are there behavioral conditions?
 
Then there's the question of medication use during pregnancy. Is it advisable? Are there alternatives? 
 
Getting us started on these issues will be Brooklyn clinical psychiatrist Edward Gelber.
