Has anyone tried nicorette to control ADHD? What are the side effects? What are the risks?
I am having a really hard time focusing. I had to discontinue my medication two years ago because I lost my health insurance. Without health insurance, Adderall would cost me almost $300. I know I could get generic Ritalin a lot cheaper, but I'm not crazy about Ritalin's side effects.
I tried alternative stuff like omega 3 and choline supplements, removing sugar from my diet, and gettting extra exercise. None of those things really help me, in fact, exercise sometimes make my ADHD worse.
I used to drink caffeinated beverages, it helped somewhat, but it caused me to have longer/painful periods. I don't want that!
