I really don’t think medication is a good answer for ADHD. Is it wrong to say that? I believe eating well and exercising regularly is the answer, as well as maybe some coaching. I’ve tried Adderall and, being an anxious person already, I don’t like how I feel on it. Plus I am sensitive and prone to heart palpitations. Chemically Adderall is supposed to be very close to meth. I know that doesn’t mean “equal to,” but there’s got to be some concern about that, right?
