My son is 15 and i have had him on medication in the past for it, but did not like they way it made him. He was not my child . Came home from school and just laid around. So i took him off his medication. He over all is a great kid just need to figure out a way to get him to stay focus in his class without having to resort to medication again...Any suggestions?Answer Question
You can try a diet change. It requires cutting out a lot of artificial coloring and such. I know people who have done it and swear by it.

There are some great alternatives to medication, but not all children respond to the same things, so it's a lot of trial and error. TMG or DMG can help a lot. Kids will respond to one or the other, but not both. A magnesium supplement, given with B6 for absorption, can be a huge help. http://www.wellsphere.com/add-adhd-article/treating-adhd-with-magnesium-and-vitamin-b6/578241
