Not all ADHD medication is a stimulant. One exception is Strattera. Not only does it not keep one awake at night and not suppress the appetite, but it also does not cause blood pressure to rise. (I am 75 years old and have a problem with hypertension, so Stattera, though expensive, addresses that problem.) There is another brand that is approved for children only, also expensive, and there is a new one mentioned in this publication, that may be available in a couple of years.
