ADHD Treatment Side Effects Directory
Stimulant medications that are used to treat ADHD can have side effects. Often, these side effects, such as sleep problems, appetite loss, or headaches, can be eased by changing medications or dosage. Nonstimulant medicines are also used to treat ADHD. These include the drugs Strattera, Intuniv, and some antidepressants. Rarely, ADHD medicine can cause more serious side effects, so be sure to talk to your doctor about your medical history and family history to prevent those.
