ADHD-Non-Medicinal Coping Strategies/Techniques?

I do like taking Korean Panax Ginseng/anything "Ginseng" for ADHD and it does help me some. I don't find many supplements to be of great help, but I do find a high protein/fat diet with high potassium/magnesium to help as long as I drink plenty of water. I like small amounts of caffeine, but more than like 100-150 mg a day (or so) makes me too jittery.

I've heard L-Tyrosine and L-Theanine are good, but I'm worried they will interact with my Dextroamphetamine medicine? What do you all like to help manage ADHD besides the "common" coping skills like yoga, exercise, music, etc.? Any UNIQUE thoughts/ideas out there?
