The abbreviation ADHD stands for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder. Children have difficulties with concentration and seem to move all the time. Is it dangerous? It can lead to problems in school and relations with others, but nothing more than that. It is considered non-curable neurological disease but some patients are able to control their symptoms over time, without the use of medication. For others there are different kinds of treatment that usually combine psychotherapy and medication. Most commonlly used drugs are: Methylphenidate (better known by the names Ritalin and Concerta), Amphetaminess (Adderall), dextroamphetamines (Dexedrine) and bupropion.
