ADHD/ADD: First step is to make sure a qualified professional has made the correct diagnosis; many disorders can involve inattention or concentration problems other than just add/adhd. Medications to treatment adhd/add are generally stimulating medications: atomoxetine, methylphenidate, or amphetamine-based medications. They have a number of the same indications and potential side effects. See your doctor.
