Meds seem to stimulate in a more indiscriminate way. Of course I am not only not a medical professional, but I did not spend years trying to nail down a medication like some have, so I may be wrong.
I think stimulant meds can often improve quite a few different symptoms,
including being able to think more linearly and think of the words that he or she
wants to use.

That was the main symptom that I saw improve when I began taking Omega 3
supplements. No more staring at the computer screen trying to remember the
word I wanted to use to explain something. No more reading back through
something I had posted and wondering what I was thinking at the time. And
no more having people I was talking to ask me "Did you mean "this" instead of
"that"?

Neurofeedback may be helpful as well, but it doesn't have the research that
backs up the results the way stimulant meds do.
