Dr. Anita Uhl Brothers, M.D., of Berkeley, California, wrote an
introduction to an ADHD autobiography titled How to Cure Hyperactivity
(1981) which is about an FDA approved medicine, a special caffeine
compound, which worked better in case of mild ADHD than Ritalin.  There
were certain effects associated with this caffeine compound that
suggested it tended to act as a kind of growth hormone agent/growth
hormone.  The 1981 book is available through the Library of Congress.
