1094380 tn?1257180947 L-Theanine gets mentioned a lot as something that is supposed to help. Unfortunately, people never post back to say if it works or not. This quote is from and makes it sound like it is worth trying. I think it would be safe as its even in some gatorade drinks ("focus" - I think.

Avatar n tn Please let people know that the Feingold diet has been used for 25 years as a treatment for ADHD and other behavioral disorders, as well as helping many of the physical symptoms that frequently accompany ADHD such as asthma, bed wetting, chronic ear infections, migraines, etc. There remains a pervasive myth that the diet has been "debunked" and that it does not work, or that it is "unproven" or has "no scientific support." I repeat -- this is a MYTH.

Avatar n tn ADHD and Allergies Dear Liz ; Thank you for your answer on the subject of ADHD . ADHD is still a young entity and will require further advancement in our understanding of how the brain works exactly before we can decifer the actual defect . As I described to Joy , ADHD maybe a presentation of a biological neuropsychiatric behvior and has many relations with other psychiatric disorders , some would be depression , anxiety disorders , conduct disorders , language and learning disorders ..etc.

The past month he has been demonstrating severe mood swings, outbursts, fussiness during sleep, wetting himself, inappropriate language, and desires to hurt others sometimes. His psychiatrist who prescribes his Ritalin for the ADHD has recommended him also taking 10 mg of Prozac.

Avatar n tn In the three and a half years that I have been posting to this site, I have seen no posts by parents giving positive results of herbal medicines for ADHD. I have seen many posts saying we will try this or that, but they never come back to let us know of the effects. I am guessing that if a parent found something that really worked, it would be all over this site (and many others - as the health food community would jump on the bandwagon).
1204383 tn?1265653338 I have heard from several people who have kids who have ADHD without or, with ODD, as our son does, that there are ways to control it and/or cope with it in that child through diet. Has anyone heard of this and/or does anyone know what that diet might consist of or avoid to better manage the child's moods and limit their stressors or anxieties?
Avatar f tn how does a lack of magnesium affect the body?, im trying a natural approach for adhd/nld (similiar to asperger's) he is on fish friends which has epa and dha. mutlivitamins and still prozac which is cut down from 10mg to 5mg to wean him off, he was on concerta 36mg for adhd, clonidine .1mg to help with sleep and prozac10mg to combat severe side effects, then after starting prozac. he was chewing on the inside of his lower lip so bad, 2 weeks later and he now has two scars..
Avatar f tn I'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.
Avatar n tn I have heard a lot about the correlation between tics and OCD and ADHD. Maybe you can help clear up a few concerns for us. Firstly, what is the frequency of a child with a tic developing Tourette's, OCD, and ADHD? Secondly, is there anything as parents that we can do for our son to ward off OCD? He seems to be a happy, social, intelligent child. He is quite ritualistic about certain things, but nomore so than any other 3 year old. Are we worrying needlessly?
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 n tn WHAT CAN I DO TO LOWER MY TOLERANCE LEVEL? Suppliments like Magnesium, or any herbs? Diet? Thank you so much, maybe I can finally get some answers, since I have been so diligent (and hardworking) searching for a answer to this huge dilemma.
Avatar f tn Hello, I've read from alternative doctors that underneath ADHD, panic attacks, CFS, etc. is an adrenal problem and that after treatment, these problems have gone away. I'd like to know what protocols and supplements have been used in rebuilding the Adrenal Glands. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Maybe go see a Naturopathic Dr. There are other ways to treat ADD, herbs, amino acids, and dietary changes.
Avatar m tn Omega3 oils are excellent for brain activity and for the skin. I give it to my son for adhd and it helps his concentration levels. Therefore it's not surprising that it could help for anxiety too. It is excellent for the health and certainly being healthy helps fight anxiety. Go for it and let us know.
Avatar m tn A lot of children with ADHD also have tics and that seems to fit with your child . There have been reports of the drugs to treat it causing stunted growth and psyciatric problems though so be very careful. Children with ADHD also tend to have sensitive nervous systems, so they experience the world with a heightened intensity. As a result, they’re prone to anxiety, inattention, restlessness, and sleep problems.
Avatar n tn I just want to know what herbs mainly which SAFE herbs I should think about giving him if they decide to do the wait and see thing, because if he can really be like the way he was a few years ago I know he and I will be happy.
4801019 tn?1359349012 Other combination supplements will have herbs such as uva ursi that do the same thing plus herbs such as goldenseal that kill harmful bacteria but not beneficial bacteria and herbs that help tone the urinary tract. Herb Pharm makes tinctures for this, Gaia has tinctures and pills, but many companies make good products. Planetary Formulas is another good company.
193953 tn?1272078626 ANY ADVICE ON HERBS THAT WON'T INTERACT, please send them my way. After I get things straight again, I am planning on trying to substitute herbs for the ADHD and stress. You guys are great and I love you all!
Avatar n tn I have tried discepline him at home spanking, taking away toys, tv, desserts, nothing seems to work. I tried limited his sweets, giving him natural herbs to calm him at school. I don't experience these problems with him at home becuase it is just the two of us. However, he is father stated that he often displays inappropiate behavior when he takes him around his girlfreiend's family. His father has another son who is a year old. For the most part, he displays this behavior at school.
Avatar n tn I'm all over the board and going crazy with this on-again, of-again ADHD of a period since December! No clotting disorder, no blood disorders, thyroid normal. Any ideas?
Avatar f tn He hasn't ever suggested any type of NA or AA and now he has presribed him Adderall (with a a diagnosis of Adult Adhd)!! WHY ON EARTH WOULD would you ever prescribe a highly addictive stimulant to someone who is addicted to stimulants?? Now perhaps the ADHD diagnosis is correct (hints the addictive personality,etc.) but EVERYTHING i have read on Adderall says "you should not take Adderall if you have a history of drug and/or alcohol abuse".
Avatar m tn Please note that I have never heard of this being recommended for ADHD and there are no trials that I know of. The medications they normally dish out have serious drawbacks and most can result in addiction. Gingko biloba is harmless and worth a try.
Avatar f tn Which is (to me) kind of a scary natural herb. Oh, do you think that she has ADHD? Have you looked up the symptoms for ADHD. What you mentioned above are not any of the classic symptoms, but I can give you a link to the specific ones.
152852 tn?1205717026 His sock seams bother him and he removes all tags from all clothing. He's also has your classic ADHD symptoms--especially impulsiveness and focusing issues. I have suspected that my son would be diagnosed with ADHD for a long time now, but have never had the diagnosis since prescription medication wasn't something we were willing to consider. We home school, so I haven't had any pressure from a school or teacher to have him evaluated.
