Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Behavioural therapies and psychotherapy sessions help too. Use of non stimulant meds like wellbutrin also help.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care

ADHD stands for Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder.Medications are the top treatment for ADHD. One of the approaches to managing ADHD without medication involves training teachers in specific techniques that help keep patient focused.
