The posts I’ve found elsewhere are:

“I heard that this was a good natural substitute for Adderall, anyone tried it? Thanks!”, “Stumbled upon this stuff while reading about the shortages of ADHD drugs:..”, “I found a natural substitute called AddieUP and they work great they are natural and you can get them online…”, “Have you heard of AddieUP, it is great and natural has 4 stimulants and nootropics. We will be glad to send you samples thanks!”,

And now some responses (these are not my words, but the responses of posters to the above statements):

“Absolutely not!!!! Adderal ( dextroamphetamine) is a prescription only heavily controlled drug. AddieUp is a bunch of caffeinated herbs with no approval, clinical trials (not studies), and may even contain some controlled substance. Obviously a play on the Adderall name. Nothing more than coffee.”

“Addieup is rubbish.”

“Wow, is this an ad for medication? I googled your product, and the only pages I could find for it were on facebook and youtube, and you have to like the facebook page in order to see it. Personally, that sets off some alarm bells for me.”

So you can see why someone like me would be suspicious of the seeming flurry of “have you tried AddieUp” posts that are flooding the internet. Even if you are not one of those paid to sing the praises of this miracle cure, you have to admit that you sound just like them.

But since you asked – there’s your answer. If you are experiencing problems with your medication, talk to you doctor, even if it’s to say, “sorry, no more meds for me.” The proper treatment for ADHD includes many things, not just medication. I implore you to see your doctor and not waste time and money on unproven stuff like this.
