He can talk to a : psychiatrist about his medication & self-medication history, as there are non-stimulant medications approved for use in adults with ADHD, engage a therapist to help him with organizational skills & join CHADD.org to learn about work accommodations under the Americans with Disabilities Act. He can see his primary physician about his cardiac risk factors. But, it's his choice to do any of these.
