All-Rounded Treatment for ADHD Patients
Common perception states that ADHD or Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is limited to kids. While it is true that it occurs in the developmental stages of childhood, it can continue into adulthood in 60% of school-going children.
Common symptoms of this disorder include forgetfulness, disorganization, concentration problems and emotional difficulties.
While children and adolescents may be able to compensate for the ADHDH symptoms and work around it, for adults, the situation is worse. They might find the task of juggling with responsibilities a hectic one with ADHD. A World Health Organization (WHO) study indicated that employees with ADHD symptoms have work loss of 22 more days annually as compared to their colleagues.
With these worrying statistics in mind, the news of Millennium Medical Associates offering adult AHDH treatment comes as a relief to the residents of Beverly Hills.
People visiting the health care center are offered an assessment following which an MMA doctor determines if the person has ADHD. The assessment can also be undertaken online on its website. If the assessment indicates a strong possibility of ADHD, ADHD treatment can be sought from Millennium Medical Associates.
A multi-pronged approach is required for ADHD treatment starting with medication. Patients might be prescribed stimulants as well as non-stimulants such as Straterra.
“Whatever medications are prescribed to the patients, care is taken to not prescribe stimulants to a person with a substance abuse problem as it will worsen their health condition. Patients are asked what medication they have taken earlier for ADHD.” says an MMA doctor.
“We help patients put together a treatment plan involving medication and psychosocial therapy. It also requires self-help groups, individual therapy, vocational counseling and behavioral coaching. We guide patients regarding treatment options and if need be, we might communicate with the person’s PCP”, adds ADHD specialist at Millennium Medical Associates.
Physicians at Millennium Medical Associate diagnose ADHD with the help of a symptom checklist. They also get detailed history from the person concerned and their family. One session is not enough in diagnosing it.
According to him, sometimes ADHD patients feel embarrassed about going to a physician or psychiatrist because others might think they are making an excuse. However he also adds that leaving ADHD untreated is dangerous and can lead to many health, relationship and financial problems.
Patients can also use Telemedicine facility whereby doctor will consult them via video-conferencing.
