Hyperactivity Treatments

Hyperactivity: Treatments Inroduction

Treatment plans for hyperactivity are individualized based on the underlying disease or disorder, the patient's age, medical condition and other factors.

When hyperactivity is caused by stimulant drug use, reduction and/or discontinuation of the stimulant is generally prescribed. With some stimulant medications or excessive caffeine use, a gradual tapering off of use may be needed to minimize symptoms of withdrawal, such as headache and irritability.

ADHD can be successfully controlled with medications, such as certain stimulants. Stimulants actually work in reverse in people properly diagnosed with ADHD and can produce a calming effect and improved concentration. ADHD is also treated with a variety of forms of psychotherapy and parenting skills training.

Hyperactivity that is the result of hyperthyroidism due to Graves' disease, can be treated with medications, including beta blockers, which minimize some symptoms, and anti-thyroid medications, which decrease the overproduction of thyroid hormones. Graves' disease may also be treated with radioactive iodine. In this treatment, liquid radioactive iodine is swallowed, which acts upon the thyroid to control over-activity and overproduction of thyroid hormone.

Thyroid nodules that are not cancerous are treated by reducing the size of the nodule or treating it with radioactive iodine. If a thyroid nodule is malignant (thyroid cancer), the thyroid gland is removed in a surgical procedure and radioactive iodine is used to ensure any leftover cancer cells are killed.
