Ritalin Alternative for ADHD
Alternatives to Ritalin for ADHD treatment are available to families seeking to avoid using prescription stimulant medications. Our favorites are based on our own years of clinical experience and research, and they include:
- Our ADHD Diet and Eating Program - easy to do, doesn't cost much, and helps about 25% of those who do just this one intervention;
- Essential Fatty Acid Supplementation - part of our ADHD Diet, but listed separately here. The simplest way to do this is use equal amounts of Flax Seed Oil and Primrose Oil. We no long recommend fish oils.
- Attend, Extress, Memorin, or Deprex from VAXA - these are great nutraceutical medicines that can improve symptoms and can be a good alternative to Ritalin for ADHD. Our own research showed that over 70% of those using these products for 30 days or more benefitted greatly from them. What you take depends on the type of ADHD that you have.
- EEG Biofeedback or Neurofeedback Training - same thing, different names. Very effective intervention for ADHD and other neurological issues too. But can be very costly depending on the provider, and your insurance coverage.
Look at this chart comparing Ritalin to ATTEND and to EEG Biofeedback treatment...
Ritalin is very effective. Ritalin works somewhat differently in the brain than do the amphetamines like Dexedrine or ADDerall. Ritalin seems to primarily impact on longer term vesicular storage of Dopamine, while amphetamines primarily impact the pool of newly synthesized Dopamine. It also has a different effect on Norepinepherine.
Attend is also effective. It has amino acids, essential fatty acids, phospholipids, homeopathic medicines, and more. It is healthy and effective. And it does not require a prescription, and comes with a no-risk trial policy second to none. It either works - or it is free. More information on the natural remedy ATTEND.
