In brief: No meds?
Phosphatidylserine, gaba.
Alphalinoleic acid, leucine, kava, ginko, picnogenol.Zinc, magnesium, omega3 fa, vitamin b6, dmae among other have been studied with inconclusive results, although there are case reports of some improvement noted.Regulation and quality control of these otc meds is poor.Weigh your risks vs benefits and discuss with your md to avoid possible drug interactions.

In brief: Not medication
Dmae is a neurotransmitter precursor that has been studied for the symptoms of adhd.
It is over-the-counter and has been found to be very effective. The journal of pediatrics published a study about its effectiveness over 50 years ago.
