ADHD or Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder is one of the most common mental disorders that affect children and also affects many adults. The symptoms of Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder include the inability to keep focus, hyperactivity or excessive movement, and even impulsivity. According to the CDC,

The estimated number of children ever diagnosed with ADHD, according to a national 2016 parent survey,is 6.1 million (9.4%). This number includes 388,000 children aged 2–5 years, 4 million children aged 6–11 years, 3 million children aged 12–17 years.

There are many different prescription medications that can be prescribed for ADHD.  Stimulants are the most commonly used medications for ADHD treatment. They include medications such as Adderall, Vyvanse, Ritalin, Concerta, Jornay OM, or Adhansia XR. They work to treat ADHD by increasing the availability of certain chemicals in the brain by making the pathways work more effectively. They can lessen the symptoms by up to 80%. Although potentially less effective, non-stimulant medications are also prescribed, but usually prescribed in addition to stimulant medication. They also proscribe non-stimulants such as Strattera, Intuniv, or Welbutrin.
