So, managing day to day life can be difficult with ADHD. If you're on this page, you, or someone you care for, has been having symptoms of ADHD and you're looking into ADHD medication to help cope with the disorder.
Let's be clear about this too - there is NO cure for ADHD - it is not going away - not with prescription medication for ADHD - not with a special diet - not with natural medication for ADHD or anything else!
Really, while it is a disorder, let's remember that while the ADHD symptoms can be difficult, taming them is possible and day to day tasks become easier.
Let's also remember that people with ADHD are usually very creative and intelligent. Some of the most well known celebrities, business executives and world leaders live (or lived) well even though they were (or are) affected with ADHD symptoms. So, whoever it is you know that has ADHD symptoms is in good company and rest assured - becoming highly successful is not uncommon for people with the wonderful ADHD brain.
If you'd like to know a few of these fine people, here we'll do a little name dropping -

You see, if you look at all these highly successful people, you may begin to understand that quite possibly, being afflicted with ADHD may be more of blessing than anything else. Having an ADHD brain allows for quick decision making when needed. These are innovators, creators, movers, shakers, industry makers. They are the hunters, they are world leaders, capable to handle stress and risk better than their counterparts that do not have ADHD.
ADHD medication is most often a prescription given by a health practioner. There are side effects to these medications and plenty of thought should go into the decision to get "medicated". We are talking about a lifetime here - ADHD isn't a condition that people grow out of. Boys with ADHD will become men with ADHD. Girls with ADHD will become women with ADHD. This means they may well need ADHD medication for their entire lives. Some (or most) prescription medication for ADHD has quite serious side effects. Think about long term use of any medication and what kind of side effects that medicine brings with it before starting your ADHD treatment.
ADHD medication includes stimulants and non-stimulants. Popular ADHD drugs today are Ritalin, Concerta, Metadate, Focalin,Vyvanse,Metadate CD, and Adderall (and there are others). Stimulants and amphetamine type medications for ADHD are the most common. The FDA has issued a warning about the risk of drug abuse with amphetamine stimulants. FDA safety advisors are also concerned about the possibility that all amphetamine and methylphenidate stimulants used for ADHD may increase the risk of heart and psychiatric problems. Additionally, side effects of these medications include some loss of appetite, weight loss, sleep problems, irritability to name a few.
While stimulant drugs may be effective at reducing ADHD symptoms (such as inattention, hyperactivity, or impulsivity), it comes at a high cost to one's health. The potential side effects are numerous and sobering:
Tachycardia (rapid heart beat)
Mania, psychosis, hallucinations
Agitation, anxiety, nervousness
Irritability, hostility, aggression
Depression, emotional sensitivity, easy crying, social withdrawal
Drowsiness, "dopey," reduced alertness
Confusion, mental impairment (cognition and learning)
Zombie-like (robotic) behavior with loss of emotional spontaneity
Dyskinesia, tics, Tourette's
Nervous habits (e.g. picking at skin, pulling hair)
Nausea, vomiting, bad taste, dry mouth
Abnormal liver function tests
Pituitary dysfunction, including growth hormone and prolactin disruption
Disturbed sexual function
Hypersensitivity reaction with rash, conjunctivitis, or hives
Amphetamines are commonly referred to as "speed" and they are chemically similar to cocaine. Both cause similar reactions in the brain. If we were to give cocaine to hyperactive children, instead of Ritalin, we'd most likely get similar results. Yet doing so would be criminal.
"We have become the only country in the world where children are prescribed such a vast quantity of stimulants that share virtually the same properties as cocaine."
Symptoms of ADHD can be mild, moderate or severe. In mild and moderate cases, it is possible to control the ADHD symptoms naturally and to avoid use of the ADHD medication with side effects and issues as noted herein. That said, anyone should be aware that natural medications are not as strong as prescriptions. When it comes to ADD and ADHD, maybe the one you know really doesn't need the strongest medication. Maybe toning those symptoms down a bit would make life manageable.
Using SNAP as an alternative ADHD treatment is safe and makes total sense. Both are working on the same neurological pathways. Thankfully, unlike prescription medicines, SNAP won't damage your kidneys and liver, stagnate your growth, or give your heart palpitations. If you are seeking a safe alternative for help to control ADHD symptoms in children or adults then SNAP may be right for you.
