What's New? -- ADHD Focus
Back by popular demand is the KidsMeds’focus on Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). Did you know that between 3-5% of all school-aged children in the United States have been diagnosed with ADHD?? Review of the condition, how it is diagnosed, the medications commonly used to treat (how they work, their possible side effects, and things to remember when giving your child these medications), as well as lists of other useful websites and associations, will be included in this focus.
