A noticeable improvement in all aspects of ADHD.
on November 5, 2015
My grandson has been diagnosed with ADHD and was given a prescription for a medication to help him concentrate in school. My daughter (his mother) was understandably hesitant to medicate him. I found this product on Amazon and figured it was worth a try. It worked so gradually that we really didn't notice the transition or that it was, in effect, making a difference. Then he had a stomach virus and didn't take it for four days. That is when we noticed how much more active and less attentive he became. After taking it again for a few days, we went back to what we call the "new normal."
Don't get me wrong: this isn't a cure. What it does is tune down the hyperactivity somewhat so he can concentrate a little more, listen longer, get a little less frustrated, and be a little more still when doing ordinary things (like watching Ninja Turtles without jumping on the furniture.) He is still an active child, he still struggles, but he blends pretty well in with the other first graders. His teacher is satisfied with his progress and seldom has a complaint. He is still the same happy, smart, loving, and fun child he has always been and we are delighted that we didn't put him on a strong medication that might have changed his personality. We love him just the way he is.
