* Keep in mind the ADD is not something that can be “cured” and usually it does not “just go away” – think of it is something that needs to be managed and treated over time, probably many years, and possibly over the person’s entire lifetime.
* Seek the treatment and methods and support which works best for YOU. Many, (but not all) people with ADD can benefit greatly from medication- but it needs to be the medication which works for THEM, at the dosage which is most effective for them.
