There are many drugs given for ADHD, there is no kind of best medication for any Psychiatric illness. The drug given by the doctor depends on the age, severity f the disease, predominant symptoms, side effects of the drugs [each individual will react differently to a drug].

Based on the examination, doctor can prescribe either Methylphenidate based products or Amphetamine-Based Products .

He can also prescribe, Atomoxetine (Strattera) or Clonidine and guanfacine (Catapres and Tenex).
