Q: Are there medications for treating executive function issues?
So this is the thing with meds – they help with some things, but they don’t change your life overnight.
A common expression you’ll hear is, “medication is like putting on glasses.” But as soon as it wears off, you’re still you.
A little more dopamine across the synapse might make it easier for you to start on a task that feels overwhelming. Or maybe with the meds, you are better able to pause and choose your next move. MAYBE.
What’s that expression … results may vary? It depends on you and your specific set of challenges.
Medication is one tool in a larger treatment plan for executive function disorder. You’ll still need to develop emotional and life management skills, and those things come with time and support.
There are tons of resources right here through ADDA. And don’t be afraid to look for a therapist or a coach – the good ones are worth waiting for 😉
Hope that helps!
