Overview

New ADHD Medication Rules deals with the over-medication, missed diagnoses and imbalanced medical treatments used today in the treatment of ADHD. Dr. Parker shows where and how these imbalances occur, provides the data and explanations for why treatment is often incorrect, and then simplifies and explains insightful methods for dealing with ADHD medications, both for medical practioners and parents of kids and adults with ADHD.


Rules is based upon the latest brain science, and includes a variety of associated treatment topics that address the real complexity of ADHD medical management.


The variables that effect medication effectiveness range from sleep, to breakfast, to biomedical interferences that can dramatically change the way medications burn in the body. Without Rules the possibility of missing potentially dangerous drug interactions and associated diagnostic challenges, such as depression and anxiety, adds to the greater possibility of treatment failure.

About the Author

Dr Charles Parker - A writer, nationally recognized speaker, (Deep Recovery, ADHD Medication Rules, CorePsych Blog), a neuroscientist certified for SPECT brain imaging, and a practicing child and adult psychiatrist with more than 43 years of experience in clinical practice. From psychoanalysis to psychopharmacology, Parker brings a unique perspective and passion to the changes that must be made in the current diagnostic and treatment protocols for psychiatric conditions in general, and ADHD most specifically. He knows the territory not only from direct experience with active practice clients, but from those many years, since '96, lecturing to medical colleagues on the science and applications of psychotropic meds for several pharma companies. His cutting edge interest in the dramatic advances in molecular and cellular physiology associated with effective brain function teach professionals and clients at every level about cognitive and emotional imbalance. Parker's mission is compelling and persuasive: brain science translation into common sense packages for everyday use.

His CorePsych Blog has won numerous ADHD writing awards over the years, and set new standards for the diagnosis and treatment of Executive Function Disorders. This is his second book. Dr. Parker works and lives in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
