Natural Treatment for Adults With ADHD?

Question by kayla: Natural Treatment for Adults with ADHD?
My brother is in his 30’s and severely ADHD. He has all of the hallmark symptoms and has since childhood and as many adults who deal with severe ADHD he battles cocaine and amphetamine addiction. Has anyone had successful experience with herbal remedies for adult ADHD?
Prayer has definitely helped us deal with this situation. Thank you for the kind advice. My brother has spoken with doctors before about his condition and is dealing with his addiction issues, but he doesn’t want to take a prescription for his ADHD treatments tend to be amphetamines (which he abuses). I’m just looking for a list of herbs that might be helpful and non harmful, such as St. John’s Wort, etc. I’ve been searching and everyone mentions that oils and herbs can help, but no one mentions specific ones. Thanks!

there is natural herbs and oils plus more that can be looked up and get. However, I recommend that you should talk to his doctor before trying anything and have him helped with the addiction he battes with first and go from there.
Good luck! God Bless You!
P.S. Praying also helps in these cases.

As far as I know, there are no medications available for ADHD that are herbal. I’ve had ADHD all my life and I’m afraid the only drugs available are pharmaceutical. I really wish that there were a herbal remedy that was known to be effective other than a placebo effect. Drugs that alter the mind are quite potent and he may have to try several ones. Seeing as he has an addiction to amphetamines, I would suggest atomexetine HCI. It’s known as Strattera in the USA so if you’re American, you might want to get it from a reputable Canadian online pharmacy or it might break the bank like so many drugs in the USA do. This drug is a non-stimulant and may be non-addictive for him. It’s a really hard thing to cope with, I’m 32 and I still have it. I really hope the best of luck to you and your brother and god bless people like you who care and take the time to help. Without people like you, I’d be lost myself. Thank you.
