Alternative treatments for ADD or ADHD — ADD Tip o the Day 415

OK, so maybe you don’t like the idea of taking ritalin, adderall, concerta or the other stimulants, or even straterra or wellbutrin.  Maybe you prefer “natural” substances, or none at all.  OK, that’s your choice;  I’m not going to argue with you (today, anyway), even if I can’t follow your reasoning.

So here’s a link from Psychiatric Times on alternative approaches that should interest you.


Warning : it’s a little clunky to use and full of ads, but it’s free and it does offer some support for some alternative approaches.

It doesn’t go far enough, because I would suggest considering exercise, yoga, meditation, caffeine, structure, and strategies as either alternatives or complementary tools.


Quote o the Day:  Different strokes for different folks.

About doug with ADHD

I am a psychiatric physician. I learned I have ADHD at age 64, and then wrote two ADHD books for adults, focusing on strategies for making your life better. I just published my first novel, Alma Means Soul. Your Life Can Be Better; strategies for adults with ADD/ADHD available at, or (for e books) Living Daily With Adult ADD or ADHD: 365 Tips O the Day ( e-book). This is one tip at a time, one page at a time, at your own pace. It's meant to last a year. As a child, I was a bully. Then there was a transformation. Now I am committed to helping people instead abusing them. The Bully was published in January, 2016. It's in print or e book, on Amazon.
