Adhd herbs

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd herbs


Avatar n tn Like to out rule possible allergy problems which can sometimes give a child ADD symptoms and I am going to try addressing the ADHD problems with natural herbs. I understand this can really work for some kids. So my advice to you is if you do start him on Prozac, consider the possibilities of why he may be having these mood swings . Is it the Ritalin? Since it has been known to cause moodiness. And is there something out there that can treat his problems naturally?

Avatar n tn Even though most natural supplements, herbs, etc. are completely harmless, there is always the possibility of a negative interaction with another medication. In my opinion, it is always best to consult your Dr. Your pharmacist is also a great resource. All the best to you!

574118 tn?1305135284 I have done a significant amount of research on herbal agents, so I will try to help you, although you are asking many questions, some of which are not very clear. First, and most importantly: if you are diagnosed with bipolar disorder, you must be under the care of a psychiatrist, someone educated in the prescription medicines that you nee to control your condition. It is not correct that the natural herbs in your list are 'tranquilizers'.
Avatar n tn I have read articles that excess caffeine during pregnancy can possibly be a reason for ADHD, but it has not been proven yet. Just some of the tests and ideas they have thrown around I think. I wold call your doctor and ask them about it.
Avatar f tn ve had an awful experience with a drug cocktail consisting of several medications for depression (prozac), ADHD (straterra), anxiety (buspar and neurontin), and sleep (trazodone and seroquel). Around 2 months into this chemical induced nightmare, I began to feel empty, way worse than I have ever felt. My life felt bleak, meaningless, and black.
