Adhd fish oil

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd fish oil


Avatar f tn m interested in natural remedies too. I was just diagnosed with Crohs and they said fish oil and flax seed oil would be good for me because it coats the intestines. And even better! It doesn't interfere with any medications if you're woried about that. I already checked that out and got the ok from my doctor. So, I'd say give it a try! It can't hurt and you may really like the benefits you get from it. Best wishes.
793266 tn?1275479663 Today I started adding fish oil and a B-complex vitamin for the adhd symptoms, and vitamin D for thyroid/mood. I am taking fish oil at dinner, B at all meals, and D at one meal. I am hoping these will increase energy, memory, and decrease AdHd symptoms and mood swings.

Avatar m tn The study intentionally used an extremely concentrated fish oil (supplied by OmegaBrite) high in EPA due to evidence that EPA has relatively stronger anti-inflammatory and antidepressant effects than DHA. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.

Avatar n tn I have a stepson that ADHD and knew that fish oil helped with that. I also wanted to know how fish oil would affect me taking while pregnant as i knew that it was a great benifit for myself also. In fact everyone should take fish oil as it is the best brain food! I can say in all my research that there is no avers affects on taking it unless you take a brand that is not purified and then you run the risk of Mercury poising. here is a link to that thread http://www.medhelp.

Avatar n tn Maybe google I do know that some research by experts has shown that supplemnts of antioxidants BComplex and Vit C can have the same efficacy as Ritailin....Fish oil Omega 3 has also shown to be useful.
Avatar m tn I have also heard other people talking about natural supplements, such as Omega 3,6,9, Fish Oil and Vitamin C. I have also never tried this for my stepson, but plan to. Hope this helps!
467977 tn?1262714747 Fish oil and Zinc supplements have been shown to be mildly beneficial. All the over the counter supplements that claim to help ADHD are scams.
Avatar m tn You might also not be eating enough sources of HDL, but you can just increase your fish oil or krill oil or hemp seed oil or flax seed oil -- there are other sources of omega 3 oils, though only fish that eat seaweed have a good level of DHA.
Avatar f tn I cant imagine he can be diagnosed with ADHD or ADD that young. I agree with margypops that the teacher was too fast to suggest ADHD. where he is acting out at home is concerned... are you consistent with discipline? do you give in to him when you are in public so he doesn't make a big scene? try fish oil. the health store down the road from me has a fruit smoothy fish oil that doesn't taste fishy at all. he will only need one tablespoon a day.
Avatar n tn I did some research and I believe I am going to start taking fish oil tomorrow!! I am excited to see if its going to work for me! Can I take fish oil with a multivitamin? Thanks!
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
Avatar f tn Talk to his doctor about ways to add fish oil to his diet. I buy it in liquid form and dump a little bit on my daughter's food. My daughter is 7 and has autism. I do not give her any sort of medication. She does take melatonin and fish oil supplements along with behavioral therapy. I'm all for no medication if possible!

Avatar m tn I have read that the omega 3 in fish oil can help with the symptoms of anxiety and depression by increasing serotonin levels. Has anybody had any experiences?
Avatar n tn Fish Oil and Flax Seed Oil are both very good for you! They have the good fats we need, the Omega 3's. They can nurish the brain, the gut, the skin and hair and joints. It can't hurt to give them a try. I had a friend who's two boys were diagnosed with ADHD and she didn't want to put them on the medication. She was very into healthy alternatives and so put them on Flax Seed Oil every day.
Avatar m tn Like sandman2 said, I would look into talking to someone about his medication. There are also natural remedies you can look into, like fish oil. They come in caplet, gummie, or liquid form and have been shown to have a great effect on people! Maybe you could even try taking some yourself. Fish oil is a natural antidepressant and can help you handle your emotions better. I take it daily.
Avatar n tn Has anyone tried Fish Oil supplements as a treatment for ADD/ADHD with any success?
Avatar n tn I would suggest that you check out many references online about the efficacy of Ritalin and Anti oxidants and fish oil ..I could give you links but there are a few to look up online if you put it in the search engine . Some folks want to just have most children taking drugs and do not want to even know that there are other avenue's out there ..this is part of the whole problem in this country now .. .
