Hey, I've also heard that Wellbutrin helps patients with ADHD, especially in adults, is that true?

Wellbutrin has been found to reduce the aggression and the hyperactivity in some children. And some physicians have began prescribing Wellbutrin for ADHD, but it has not been approved by the FDA

Studies show that Wellbutrin is just as effective as ritalin. It might be worth looking into if the patient is allergic or have some side effects arising from the use of ritalin.

Yeah, I've hear that if you have heart and blood pressure problems, your doctors might not want Ritlain for you.

Just curious if you have tried Dexedrine?
Also, no drugs are going to help without behaviour therapy/modification.

You need to do both to make it successful.

Hmmmn... I would think that they are different treatments for ADHD. Of course they go hand in hand because both behavior modification and psychostimulants have been known to be effective for ADHA. But the absence of one will not make the other less effective. It's just that, taken together, their therapeutic effects are magnified.

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic condition that affects millions of children and often persists into adulthood. Problems associated with ADHD include inattention and hyperactive, impulsive behavior. Children with ADHD may struggle with low self-esteem, troubled relationships and poor performance in school.

While treatment won't cure ADHD, it can help a great deal with symptoms. Treatment typically involves psychological counseling, medications or both.
