Good answer Penny!
Hello there , hi there! It is tough to find a medication to treatADHD.
Getting in touch with a good doctor who understands it is even tougher. The drugs that is successful to most (50+ %) ADHD patients are stimulants( Adderall, Ritalin). Do you know what medicines that your cousin was prescribed? And what dosages?
Have your cousin read as much as possible about the different medications so that he will be knowledgeable about them before he takes them. Knowledge is power!
