FDA Approves New Treatment For ADHD Using Electrical Shocks To The Forehead

There’s an exciting breakthrough for the treatment of ADHD, and it does not involve drugs.

It’s the first FDA-approved medical device for the condition and CBS2’s Dr. Max Gomez reports that it works by stimulating nerves in the forehead.

The device, called Monarch eTNS, stimulates different nerves in a similar way that studies have shown stimulating nerves in the neck are effective for controlling epilepsy and depression.

It’s easy to think of ADHD as just young kids, usually boys, being full of energy and rambunctious – until you see what one mother deals with when her nine-year-old is unmedicated.
