Go to your local health food store and ask them for supplements to help with ADD/ADHD. There are plenty of them, without the side effects of some meds. I take meds in the morning, and my ADD supplement in the afternoon. It helps me stay on track the rest of the day, plus I can sleep at night. I had problems with interrupted sleep when I took meds in the afternoon. My personal favorite is Rainbow Light Brain and Focus for Teens and Adults. I am 60 years old, and this makes a huge difference!
