Conventional ADHD treatment involves a combination of therapy and medication. Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) can be particularly useful for people with ADHD.
The most common type of medication used to treat ADHD is stimulants, which act on the neurotransmitters in your brain. Other medications that could help include aminoketone antidepressants and nonstimulant medications like atomoxetine.
While many people who have ADHD find these treatments effective, others find that their problems don’t improve using conventional approaches. If this is true for you, transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is an alternative therapy that could make a significant difference in your life.
TMS is a safe, noninvasive treatment that uses magnetic waves to adjust the neural activity in your brain. Dr. Bishop finds that TMS therapy can reduce symptoms of ADHD even where other approaches have failed, and many of his patients have benefited enormously from their TMS therapy.
