There I was watching telecasting 1 afternoon, and a commercial came on that reported, "X% of people who endure from depression and take medication, go on to undergo symptoms of depression."
I was on the border of my seat... I couldn't believe it!
Were they finally going to propose other treatment besides medication? Was person going to finally blow the eyelid on treatment and actually propose the importance of therapy and better understanding the behaviors?
All that exhilaration was suddenly lost the minute I heard the commercial urge the demand and usage of further medications.
I felt deflated...
It just didn't do sense.
"Treat in progress symptoms of depression with more than medicine instead of going after the root cause," I asked myself?
That was the last straw.
What makes this mean value for ADHD?
Like depression, attention deficit disorder is thought to be biologically based. Research have suggested, and theoreticians believe, that there are abnormalcies with the soaking up of chemicals and neurotransmitters in the encephalon that Pb to behaviours like we see in attention deficit upset and depression.
This is one major ground why prescribing medicine is often a first measure for the individual diagnosed with ADHD.
Medications are specifically engineered and researched to aim these specific chemicals and neurotransmitters in the encephalon to adjutant in the process.
Yet, many people with attention deficit disorder still experience symptoms of the disorder even while taking their prescribed medications.
Ask yourself what else might be going on?
While I am no expert on medicine and how the encephalon functions, I can state you that if your medicine is not addressing the symptoms you are struggling with, then you really owe it to yourself to inquire what else might be going on.
Can medicines do a difference? Yes, absolutely.
But at the same time, upsets like attention deficit disorder and depression also have got a very strong and powerful emotional or psychological component.
And while there is no set criterion for what might happening, there have been a subject to propose that the events in our lives, and those immediately around us can lend to how we act and interact with the world.
This is particularly true in children and adolescents.
Does this business relationship for ADHD? Maybe yes, maybe no. But, I can vouch you that regardless of the presence or absence of a disorder, we are all affected by our environment and what we are experiencing.
Disclaimer: In any treatment of medication, I experience it is of critical importance to remind you that any and all medical and mental wellness determinations go on to be made with your or your child's physician, psychiatrist, or healer who is an expert in ADHD.
