What is the best ADHD medication?
There are many different medications on the market that are used to treat ADHD. The two classes are the stimulants and the non-stimulants. The stimulants (such as methylphenidate, mixed amphetamine salts, etc...) are still considered the most potentially beneficial medications in the treatment of ADHD symptoms. However, the nonstimulant Atomexetine can be potentially beneficial. The potential benefit of the different stimulants is the same. One stimulant is not better than another. Each person has a unique response to a given medication, so for some people there is one medication that works better than another. This can only be evaluated for each person.
