Q: What kinds of new ADHD medications are available for adults?
At this point there are nearly 40 medications approved for the treatment of ADHD. Physicians refer to “first line” treatments which include stimulant medications. And there’s the second line, which refers to medications like strattera. Here’s a fairly current list.
Whether you present as hyperactive-impulsive, inattentive, or combined, prescribers will work with you to determine what’s best.
I’m not a physician so my best advice would be to ask your prescriber what is available and covered by your insurance. You might have to be patient and try more than one before you find a good fit.
Hope this helps!
