I have a question. Both of my boys are ADD/ADHD/ODD. I would like to try going all natural.

I was researching Synaptol (a liquid) and Attend (a mini pill). They both have been FDA approved. My question is what would be the side effects if I took my boys off of the concerta and intuniv if they are not a controlled substance and a non stimulant. why would I have to gradually take them off?

Please help because I am confused. According to WebMD, I am ADHD and I would like to try the Synaptol since it goes straight to the bloodstream. Safe enough for children too.

If you are thinking of stopping your child's medication please speak with your son's doctor before doing so.
AbhAadi responded:

Have you started giving your child Synoptol. If yes did it work?
Was threre any side effects.
Please share your experience to help other parents like me that will be a great help.

Thank you.

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!
