My son takes Concerta, but is so aggressive with all the ADHD meds, so I want to find an alternative to ADHD meds???
are you looking for a natural supplement or another medication? as far as non-stimulating adhd meds, there are 2 you can check out. those are strattera and intuniv. if you're trying to find something all-natural, you can go to a health food store and get some 5-HTP. i've had friends who have had great success with all of these. let me know if you have any other questions and if the concerta makes him aggressive, DO NOT let a dr. prescribe ritalin, adderall, focalin, or vyvanse.
I have tried most all medications for my ADHD. I take adderall and have for a long time. Don't get me wrong I tried concerta, vyvanse, Ritalin, strattera, and air n water. My choice is adderall. Each adult or child reacts to each medicine different. Don't let someone else's reaction make your decision. I.E. I have never had aggression issues on any medicine. My friends son was aggressive on concerta also. The other medicines didn't work as good as focalin. They found it was perfect. I never tried natural vitamins and herbs. Just try and see. Good luck to your family
