ADHD Medication Free Webinar Training

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.

Best,
Dr. Kenny

There are significant problems with the arguments forwarded in the article. I was interviewed on the News about this issue, on Thursday February 2nd, 2012. Here’s the video. I will write a more detailed response on this blog for your shortly.
