Coffee Helping Some Kids Control ADHD

“If I didn’t take my medication or any coffee, I would be all over the place, running around and I would be yelling and I start talking loud,” Michael Jeffries said. There was clearly an additional improvement. “There have been about 17 studies in the literature and those studies clearly indicate there is some benefit. However, it is so different between each individual child it is difficult to monitor,” Dr. David Childers said.

According to Dr. Harold Levinson, adding a caffeine coffee boost to stimulant medications enhances concentration in ADHD when needed. When stimulants are ineffective, caffeine via coffee, tea or pill is sometimes a helpful alternative. As known, this boost is also helpful in enhancing attention in non-ADHD individuals.
