The Long Term Effects of Taking ADHD Medications Could Be
More Than you Bargained For  
by Robert D Hawkins
can make this possible. The primary symptoms of ADHD (inattention, distractibility,
impulsivity, hyperactivity) make it difficult if not impossible for a child to overachieve
academically.

For children whose prescription meds have lead to better control over attention,
decreased distractibility, better memory, decreased hyperactivity, better emotional
control, improved motivation, and improvement in thought before action they have
not only improved their chances of academic success in the short term but in the
long term as well. Effective treatment also plays a role in self esteem issues which
will influence their behavior now and in years to come.

But on the other side of the coin lies a great deal of risk. The list of short term
problems such as stomach upset, headaches, moodiness, irritability, increased blood
pressure, skin rashes, tics, loss of appetite, and rebound effects can offset the
euphoria initially experienced. While the short term risks may seem troubling perhaps
it is the long term effects of taking ADHD medications that may be the most
disturbing. Let's look at a few of these.




So there you have it, the story of long term effects of taking ADHD medications is a
complicated balance between risk and reward leading many parent to opt for
. If you want to alleviate the symptoms associated with
ADHD so your child can live a fulfilling, successful life, start learning about alternative
ADHD remedies such as homeopathy.

The harmful short-term and long-term side effects of ADHD prescription drugs are
reason enough to seek out alternative treatment options for your child. Rather than
put your child's health at risk, research alternative treatment methods like
homeopathy so you can treat ADHD safely, gently, and effectively.

effects of taking ADHD medications is
one that involves both good and bad
components. It is difficult to make an
argument against some type of
treatment but the question always
seems to come back to whether or
not the positive long term effects of
taking ADHD medications outweigh
the negative long term effects of
taking ADHD medication.

Laying a good academic foundation
can be very important later in life and
