In brief: Agitation

Most medications used to treat adhd are stimulants.
They may be amphetamines or amphetamine like medicines. Side effects are usually mild and fade with time. They may include irritability, agitation, insomnia, weight loss. Generally, in my practice, i start these medications at a low dose and have my patients increase gradually. They tend to have few if any side effects.
