On the other hand, where I was going for Neurofeedback therapy, there was a clear indication from A test that is replicable that this was an issue. I did not bring it up, I got told it was an issue at my consultation - and they were spot on.
Then they had a course of treatments set aside for just that, and it worked awesomely.
But the same can be said for neurofeedback. They are using their knowledge to sell you a treatment that may or may not work. I do not know what degrees you need to provide neurofeedback. I am not trying to say that its crap its just that it hasnt received enough research to be considered a first line treatment for adhd whereas medications like dexedrine have been around for 70 years and have tons of peer reviewed research.

Yes meds can work, and they do for a lot of people, ,and they are indispensable for many, however... the approach is more 'try omega 3 and see if it works', 'stim meds work for most, but some do not respond well and we do not know why', 'many see improvemnts with most symptoms usually, but you may want to try something else as well' There is little that is hard fast clear quick definite with meds, in that sense it seems ham fisted. At least in my limited experience. You may have seen it work differently.
I am trying to understand what you mean by "clear quick definite" can you explain more?

As for research, that is changing. You may want to look at a series of posts over here:



That is a study demonstrating structural changes as a result of Neurofeedback, but is not ADD specific.here is a LONG article you can download to help provide research on NFB efficacy. In the posts from this thread I make several quotes, in case fishing through 450 pages of research papers is not your thing....
I am not trying to pick on your so please do not think that. I looked up the company that published this study or article and its basically an academic publishing company that you pay to have something published. So there isnt as much oversight for any claims made in the articles that it publishes. That is not to say that the work there is all bad but it is something to think about. Someone could have an agenda and get their work out there by paying for it.
