All natural supplements for adhd

Doctors prescribe attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) medications so freely, it’s literally becoming a joke. One memorable — and, as always, slightly inappropriate — episode of South Park pokes fun by showing doctors reading 8 year old children The Great Gatsby cover-to-cover and prescribing Ritalin if they cannot answer a very specific question about the book.
