ADHD Medication & Side Effects
Knowing what to expect with side effects
As with all medications, those used to treat ADHD may cause certain side effects.
Usually, those side effects are mild and temporary if the dosing is appropriate and followed. Most side effects appear when a medication is first started, or when dosages are changed. When medication is taken regularly, and as prescribed, they often disappear over time.
ADHD medications are generally well tolerated overall, but every person has a different level of sensitivity that cannot be predicted.
