Treatment Options for ADHD

My psychiatrist diagnosed me with inattentive adhd. I was on Neucon from which I started at 18mg then 27mg then 36. With 36 I could feel my memory and focus improving. Being more clear headed. But I got severe anxiety attacks with that. I opted to stay without the Neucon rather. Are there any other treatment options for ADHD except Neucon?

Yes. We have two groups of medication in South Africa at present: the methylphenidate group (Ritalin, Concerta, Neucon, Contramyl) and atomoxetine (Strattera, Inir). THe latter may be a good choice if you struggle with anxiety.
