Amphetamines promote the release and block the reuptake of Dopamine in the CNS. It's very difficult to replicate this effect with 'natural' supplements.

You can try supplementing L-Tyrosine, as shortage of L-Tyrosine can lead to a shortage of both Dopamine and Norepinephrine (L-Tyrosine is a precursor of Dopamine which is a precursor of Norepinephrine). That said, because there are several enzymes involved in the process that play the role of limiting the supply of these neurotransmitters, supplementation of L-Tyrosine will only result in more Dopamine if you are in short supply to begin with.

Others have reported that supplementation with Fish Oil or other animal-based omega-3 analogues lead to positive effects. Apart from that, 'clean living' is extremely important in management of ADHD - ensure that your diet is healthy and short on synthetic chemicals or excess sugar, make sure you get plenty of sleep (7-8 hours per night), and try to get regular daily exercise.

Best of luck.
