Is L-Theanine a good medication to be used for adhd?

I have heard that the amino acid L-Theanine is a good medication to give to adhd children to help with the emotional aspects of the condition.

L-Theanine stimulates the brain into releasing a calming hormone into the body. This helps children with ADHD because it's a natural stimulant that doesn't have the addictive quality of Ritalin.

L-Theanine is an amino acid that promotes relaxation by promoting alpha brain wave production that is useful for promoting focus, calm and attentiveness which could be helpful with adhd.

L-theanine is mainly good for anxiety. It helps relax the nervous system. It may be useful in ADHD by calming down the child's overactivity and hyperness.

I don't know about ADHD specifically, but numerous peer-reviewed scientific studies have shown L-Theanine has had modest but consistent effects in lowerinf mental stress and improving mood.
