Complementary and Alternative Medicine: Fair, Balanced, and to the Point
  • About this web log

    This blog is intended as an objective and dispassionate source of information on the latest CAM research. Since my background is in pharmacy and allopathic medicine, I view all CAM as advancing through the development pipeline to eventually become integrated into mainstream medical practice. Some will succeed while others fail. But all are treated fairly here.

    Optimize ADHD treatment in adults

    “Nonpharmacologic interventions are an important component of any ADHD (attention deficit-hyperactivity disorder) treatment plan” according to Dr. Lloyd Darlow from Cornell-Weill College of Medicine in New York.

    In this Medscape review, Dr. Darlow states, “Merely establishing the diagnosis is therapeutic for some patients, but when intervention is deemed necessary, randomized clinical trials have indicated that cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is an appropriate step.”

    “CBT is superior to medication alone in reducing core ADHD symptoms. Adults can pursue this type of therapy with a qualified counselor or on their own through self-mastery programs, and primary care providers should invest the time to educate their patients about these options.”
