I’m a family man; my five year old daughter used to be more hyperactive and so I took her to our doctor and he diagnosed her with ADHD. My wife and I like to choose a good medication route for her. But we don’t know which is safe enough to try? I need help.

ADHD is a condition where a child or adult can not stay focused on something, but I am curious to know a lot about the circumstances of your child. I would strongly recommend you to consult a "therapist" or coach specialized in ADHD and child development.
