Trifecta Health Medical Center and psychiatrist Edward Fruitman, M.D. offer adult ADD/ADHD treatment in New York City
Medication Treatment Option for adult ADD/ADHD
Part of ADHD treatment at Trifecta Health Medical Center involves medications prescribed to help improve the availability of brain chemicals, dopamine, and norepinephrine. These chemicals act as messengers to help control, attention, movement, and concentration. While the medications prescribed are stimulants, they actually help “calm down” a person with ADHD by allowing them to focus. These medications can safely alleviate symptoms when prescribed and taken as directed. Often the effect on productivity is profound. As these medications can be misused, Trifecta Health Medical has checks in place to ensure that these medications are being used appropriately. If misuse is a problem, Strattera is the medication of choice. Other, off label medications are Desipramine, Effexor, and Buproprion.
