Stimulant medication is the proven first-line treatment for ADHD. Those vague explains of your options all seem like anti-medication minded people who aren’t medical doctors. Such people are everywhere and in some areas more pervasive than ADHD professionals who actually know how to effectively treat the condition.

I have no knowledge of what things are like in your area. But, if it’s an option, seek out a medical doctor who is knowledgeable of the science of ADHD, not an idealist who ignores science in favor of their ideology.
