None: There are no established herbal remedies for adhd. Those that are on the market are largely untested for both safety and efficacy. Most contain some sort of stimulant, typically caffeine, along with other unspecified ingredients. Caffeine may help, but it tends to be short acting. This is a disorder for which we have lots of effective and safe treatments that are well studied.
