Brief Answer:
Strattera for ADHD

Detailed Answer:
Thank you for contacting HCM with your health care concerns

I am sorry to hear that you have ADHD and that your current medication Strattera is not helping your concentration. Strattera is a none narcotic medication for ADHD and is not really that good at helping people with ADHD but if it works then great. Since it is not working then you would be much better off with Adderall or ritalin of other stimulant medication for ADHD. Unfortunately there are no websites that will prescribe you Adderall. you will need to see a medical provider and they have to give you a written prescription to fill at your local pharmacy.

In summary
1. Strattera poor for treatment of ADHD
2. Switch to Adderall or other stimulant medication
3. See you medical provider for written prescription
4. No internet websites will fill any of these types of medications

I hope I answered your question. Please contact us again if you have any additional questions
