Answer

A hyper-active dog is almost always a BORED dog! Dogs have a lot of energy, and if they are not given a way to channel that energy in a positive way, they WILL figure out a way to do it themselves - you just probably won't like it!

ADHD is not a recognized disorder among canines. If the dog is behaving in a way that suggests hyperactivity, it probably needs more exercise and a way to channel its energy. Consider taking an obedience or agility class.

Also, there are a number of great books available on dog training and behavior.

Consult your vet if the dog is destructive or acts irrationally.

Has your dog had its distemperment shots? Look into that. molly rocks

The most common medications used to treat ADHD include stimulants. Rarely, stimulants are used for treatment resistant depression. There are also off-label drugs such as Wellbutrin that are used off-label to treat ADHD and are proven effective for depression. In some cases, depression that occurs with ADHD may be caused by poor treatment for the symptoms of ADHD. Also, some doctors will prescribe two separate drugs (one for ADHD and one for depression). Please see related question.

Caffeine has not been approved to treat ADHD, nor has it been proven to have any dramatic effects on focus or attention. Caffeine is a very mild stimulant and it belongs to the same class of drugs (psychostimulants) that are commonly used to treat ADHD such as amphetamine or methylphenidate. There have been theories that many people with ADHD benefit more from caffeine and it may be an attempt to self-medicate (similar to the higher proportion of individuals with ADHD that smoke tobacco which contains nicotine); treating ADHD with caffeine is not recommended.

In terms of making a person functional with ADHD, marijuana shows no evidence and has numerous evidence to the contrary. Marijuana can increase the odds of psychosis, schizophrenina-related disorders, and induce apathy and memory loss. It may indirectly treat hyperactivity by increasing apathy, but in no ways does this treat ADHD.

No; Paxil is brand-name paroextine and is used to treat depression and anxiety disorders. Paroxetine has shown no benefit in treating ADHD, however it is sometimes prescribed in addition to another medication used to treat ADHD if depression exists. In some cases, depression can cause lack of focus with is unrelated to having ADHD; taking Paxil can cause a person who was previously depressed to be able to focus.

They help balance the neurotransmitters within the brain, thus allowing the person with ADHD to be calm down and focus.
