The Empowered Learning Transformation Centers intend to educate our communities as to the impact ADD can have on the world, on families and most importantly those individuals afflicted.

For parents who have a child taking medication to help manage ADHD symptoms, a frequent source of difficulty is the need for multiple doses each day.  Among children who take Ritalin (the generic is methylphenidate), a second dose while at school and a third dose in the late afternoon is often necessary to provide good control of symptoms over the course of the day.  Administration during the school day can be associated with complications and is often a source of concern or embarrassment for the child. As children move into adolescence, this can frequently lead to a refusal on the part of the teen to continue on meds, even though medication may still be necessary to help manage the child's symptoms and help with behavior and academic performance.

Although sustained release forms of Ritalin last longer and can help somewhat with this problem, the additional duration of benefit provided by a single dose varies substantially across children. Adderall, a more recently approved stimulant medication for treating ADHD, also has a therapeutic effect that lasts longer than Ritalin, and many children on Adderall can get by with a single dose during the school day.   Even with Adderall, however, a second dose in the afternoon is often required.

Recently, a new medication called Concerta was approved by the FDA for the treatment of ADHD and is expected to be widely available very shortly.  Concerta is simply methylphenidate in which a unique and patented system is used to maintain a smooth and optimal level of medication in a child's system throughout the entire day.  In fact, the benefits of Concerta are reported to persist throughout the school day and into the evening.  This would make the administration of medication to children with ADHD much more convenient and should help to eliminate many of the problems associated with multiple daily doses.
