In this webinar, Dr. Kalikow explains the risks and benefits of ADHD medication, reviews important research findings, and provides direct answers to frequently-asked questions such as: “Can children become addicted to ADHD medication?” “Can ADHD medication cause and exacerbate tics?” “Does it negatively impact a child’s height and weight?” “If a child responds well to ADHD medication, does that confirm that they have ADHD?” Dr. Kalikow not only answers these questions, but also provides real-life examples from his experience of about 40 years of practice.  In addition to thoroughly reviewing ADHD medication, he also discusses other treatment options such as behavioral treatment, trigeminal nerve stimulation, and an FDA-Approved video game designed specifically to improve symptoms of ADHD.
