ADHD Medications: Other Risks continued...

But remember this: Experts believe these ADHD medications are generally very safe. The risk of serious problems is extremely low. And keep in mind that untreated ADHD has health risks of its own. For many people, the benefits of treatment far outweigh the relative risks.

If you do have side effects from your ADHD medications, rest assured that most will diminish with time. But if they’re bothering you – if they’re severe or interfering with your life – don’t try to ignore them. Get help from your doctor. Together, you'll be able to come up with a way to work around the side effects or to resolve them altogether.
