How Does ADHD Progress?
Although it is not yet known if a structurally different brain normalizes when someone takes medication for ADHD, symptoms often lessen as people age. For many adults with ADHD, it is best to continue to take medications if daily functioning improves.
The good news is that there are safe and effective treatments for ADHD. The best interventions begin early in life and are personalized for each individual child.
Parents and children often ask when they can stop taking medications. Although some children develop strong coping skills, deficits usually persist into adulthood. In such a case, ADHD medication can be taken well into adulthood to help control symptoms.
Children with ADHD qualify for special education services or accommodations in the classroom. Adults may be eligible for workplace accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
