hi lacie!

I don't have this issue but ill help where I can and give you some of my experiences. I think kratom has the ability to help with many conditions. it has with many of us.

typically white strains for energy, yellow or gold for mellow energy, green for focus and well being, and red for sedation and pain. this being said its good to start small and see what works for you, and how. that being said I would only try a white only in the morning ect.

see what works for you. I personally think a green/ white or gold blend might work for you. if its closer to dinnertime maybe green/ red. I have a feeling white strains by themselves might give you too much 'mach 1 ' energy so a green might be better. so hard to predict. im no kratom doctor just can give suggestions.

let us know how a trial run goes and if you need any assistance with starter doses ect..I don't recommend mixing kratom with medications to be on the safe side...or chandelier acrobats might seem like a good idea! lol.. good luck!

I don’t have ADD , but I recall having read some folks having good results with some white ( more stimulating) varieties.... which would make sense, as meds for ADD are stimulants that react in a focusing and calming way for folks with that ...

If I find any more info I’ll post it here ...

Take care Lacie (L)


The White MD from Kratom Krates had me thinking that. :) But any typical, good, white should do the same if taken in a sufficient amount.

I take low doses of Alpha-GPC, Adrafinil, Aniracetam, and L-Tyrosine.

I guess I can see the Adrafinil and Aniracetam working on ADHD, I don't really know though.

IIRC Laurie has used Adrafinil, but in the past. For me it was strong enough that I took the the 300 mg. capsules that are the standard dose and opened them up (they have filler, so each capsule has around 480 mg. total) so as to use it over three days. Which might also be a good idea in regards my liver as unlike the modafinil (which is prescription only) it breaks down into (among other stuff) it requires liver enzymes to work on it first.

Afaik the Air Force used to/still insist pilots took it, or maybe Modafinil, so as to stay focused when sleep deprived.

Hi there,
I'm new here and this is my first post. I'm 62 and currently take Ritalin for my ADHD symptoms and have for several years. I'm curious if any of you have found success using Kratom to help with attention span and lack of energy. Theres more than one type of ADD/ADHD instead of the stereo typical little boy bouncing off the wall. Mine is ADHD mainly Innattentive. I may be physically calm,but my mind is running at Mach I.

I know that as I age,it's going to be harder to obtain my Ritalin prescription. I'm trying to have a plan in place for when they decide I'm too old. I'm going to read this forum trying to learn all I can about Kratom. I do have a decent sized stash with many varieties. Thanks in advance for any help one can give.

Lacie
