Episode Description

A note about this webinar: This webinar is part of a series designed for ADHD clinicians. Although all are welcome to view the replay, non-clinicians may want to notify the professionals with whom they work of this opportunity and share the audio and slide materials.

Most ADHD diagnoses are quickly followed by a prescription for stimulant medication, the widely recognized first-line treatment for ADHD symptoms. Yet many clinicians receive little training in how to use these medications effectively. If a patient has a less than ideal experience when starting medication (troubling side effects, for example), and the clinician doesn’t respond quickly, he or she is unlikely to continue taking it faithfully.
