My son was diagnosed with moderate ADD/HD last December at the age of 12. Since his bigger issue is the inattentiveness I decided to try a change in his diet (cut out lots of processed foods) and natural remedies before even considering a medication. I bought 4 bottles of Synaptol in August. I decided to try it myself to see if there was a difference in my focus. I did notice a difference. My son notices a difference as well. I am not sure if medication is stronger and I would not make changes until you consult your child's doctor, As far as side effects we have not noticed any. Good luck!View Thread
