At the end of March 2012, I did a webinar training for ADD Resources.org, called “ADHD Medication Update”.
I’m sharing the video here, and it’s broken into 4 different video segments:
1) Introduction – this is the introduction, and let’s you know what I’ll cover during the training.
2) This is the main teaching – during this session, I cover WHY we use ADHD medications, and help you to understand that there are really only 4 types of ADHD medication – a) methylphenidate medicines, b) amphetamine medications, c) non-stimulant atomoxetine, d) non stimulant guanfacine.
We’ll cover how to make decisions around changing or adjusting medication, as well as a discussion about tolerance to ADHD medication
3) In the third video, I share some information on the ADHD Medication Shortage in the US, and strategies you can use to help yourself during this struggle.
4) In the fourth and final video, I share a summary of the ‘Ritalin Gone Wrong’ article, and share some responses to that.
I hope you enjoy the videos. Please feel free to pass them along, and type any comments in below.
