4 doctors agree

In brief: None

No natural remedy has been proven efficacious so far. Pharmacologic therapy utilizing stimulants plus behavior modification provides best results without significant side effects.
Children who received stimulants for their adhd are not at higher risk to develop substance abuse later.
