In brief: ADHD meds

There are choices besides stimulants for ADHD.
One is Straterra, which has fewer sexual side effects than stimulants. I like the medication buproprion, although it's use in ADHD is an "off label" use. I have used bupropion successfully hundreds of times. There are also the Tricyclics. See a Board Certified Child & Adolescent Psychiatrist. We're all certified in Adult Psychiatry as well. Good luck
