If you actually have clinically diagnosed ADHD, you’re only doing yourself a disservice by not going on medication - that said it’s a lot of trial and error and you really have to educate yourself on the different options. I have a great podcast on this if anybody would like help

I am taking Medikinet (Ritalin in the US) and i can report positive effects after a few weeks. Side effects like thirst are real thing but I wasn’t a big drinker before so on the up side I now drink more water. If you have a diagnosis Meds are good but it’s an individual choice. See and try what your comfortable with and speak to your doctor about it. I think CBT can help a lot on it’s own for some. In my case the best would be a combination of therapy and medication but it’s very difficult to find an adhd informed therapist where I live.

The only side effect i was experiencing in the beginning was more restless sleep. And now easier weightloss (which i a good thing at this point for me)
