I don't take it but I know adults who do and they say it works wonders!! Side effect is often that food doesn't taste as good. But, you don't have to take it 24/7. Most I know don't take it on the weekends.

I have never been prescribed, but my sister was. When i was in college, she would give me one of her adderol before a test & i can definitely say....THEY REALLY HELPED! My brain was so smart on that stuff...LOL! That's the only experience i have with it.

Make sure you look at all the research you can find about naturals... Diet modification only works in about 6% of the population to treat ADHD. The #'s may have changed but when we looked at this as an alternative for my nephew that was the current info out there. He was not able the control it with Diet and my SIL finally gave him the meds. He has excelled in school with them - where without he was in danger of failing out of HS. If you also have some OCD as well make sure you look at the research that goes with that as well. Information is good, it's how you use it that matters!! ;o)
