Many good questions generate some degree of opinion based on expert experience, but answers to this question will tend to be almost entirely based on opinions, rather than facts, references, or specific expertise.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

How do you know you have ADHD? If you have had a doctor's diagnosis, they should also have resources available to help you manage it. There is a lot of information already on the web, what specifically are you looking for help with? Please edit your question to something that has specific answers. See for help forming a good question. – Dennis S. Feb 18 '14 at 19:03

The ADHD is not an illness, but just set of symptoms. You can fight all symptom one by one by:

  • organizing your daily sleep and eating routine;

  • staying away from high GI carbohydrates;

  • staying away from caffeine and other substances;

  • get more sport exercise in your life. For better result get every day at least one hour of intense sport routine.

These cures sound very simple, but they are really hard to implement and follow.

There is some reading about importance of the sports.

I've known multiple people with ADHD who use caffeine to calm down or even sleep. Why stay away from it? – thursdaysgeek Feb 18 '14 at 21:17
