With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the pros and cons of ADHD treatment in children. According to Yourwellness Magazine, “In recent years, as the diagnosis of ADHD continues to accelerate amongst children, there has been increasing controversy relating to the effectiveness of treatment prescribed for it and whether they have long term side-effects and a detrimental impact on mental and physical wellbeing.” (http://www.yourwellness.com/2013/01/is-adhd-treatment-a-help-or-risk-for-your-childs-wellness/#sthash.Fgl6VgGd.dpuf)
Yourwellness Magazine explained that the confusion is due, in part, to the fact that children have different reactions – both positive and negative – to the drugs. Yourwellness detailed how, for those who have had positive experiences, the medication makes it far easier to undertake day-to-day activities such as going to school, and these children are often much more productive. However, those who don’t respond well to the treatment are likely to find such experiences problematic, and might experience adverse effects of the drugs.

Therefore, following diagnosis, parents face a very difficult choice about whether to seek medical intervention or to try and manage the condition without it – possibly making things more difficult in the short term. Yourwellness Magazine noted that the adverse reactions of standard ADHD treatment includes heart damage, but that many parents are also concerned about of being administered with the drugs, but another concern for some parents remains the alleged addictive effects of the treatment, especially considering that addiction has for some time associated with depression.
