Is there any known natural remedy for ADD that's been proven effective?
I’m an adult with ADD, and it’s really had a detrimental effect on my work life, not to mention my ability to get things done around the house. I was never diagnosed as a child, but realized what my difficulty was once both of my children were diagnosed in elementary school (dad also has ADD). None of us have the hyperactivity, just EXTREME distractibility and difficulty focusing. Adderall has been a godsend for my son, who’s taken it during the school day for about four years. I asked my doctor to prescribe it for me just to see if it would help. It did help me to be WAY more productive, but also caused pretty bad mood swings that made it not worth taking. Is there any herbal or other natural remedy that really helps adults with ADD? I’m desperate to find something now that I’m back in school and already struggling to focus and absorb new information.
