There are non-stimulants like Intuniv and Kapvay, in addition to Straterra. There are also medications used off-label for ADHD, like Wellbutrin, SSRI’s, tricyclics, and mood stabilizers. Unfortunately, the only way to know if any of these will help you is to work with your doctor to try them.

There are also alternative treatments like healthy lifestyle, regular exercise, neurofeedback, and supplements.
