Untreated ADHD and coping mechanisms/ skills

Recommended Posts

I was diagnosed 7 years ago and have not had any treatment for my ADHD. I don't want to take stimulants due to a family history of heart problems and I can't think of taking Strattera with the risk of serious liver injury it possesses. 

Does anybody have/ know of any coping mechanisms or skills to cope with untreated ADHD? Are there any AAPs that might have off label uses for ADHD?

What about Intuniv? It’s a blood pressure med approved for ADHD in people under 18 (I don’t know your age but I’m just mentioning that because I am unsure of it’s use in adults in the US, but it has been approved for adults internationally)
