Strategies for Managing the Risks Associated With ADHD Medications

Article Abstract

College students with ADHD may need help to overcome symptoms that make studying, organizing and completing projects, and managing their time a challenge. In order to properly treat these patients, clinicians must correctly assess ADHD and comorbid conditions using rating scales and educate patients about their responsibility to reach their treatment goals and to properly use and protect their medication. Patients with past substance use may require treatment options that are less likely to be misused, such as a nonstimulant or long-acting stimulants. Throughout the treatment process, clinicians should continue to monitor symptoms and side effects with regular office visits and random testing, watching for signs of drug misuse.
