My son is going through puberty and it is affecting him in school. The doctor told me to put him on medicine for Adhd. Would it be better to give him Vitamins for adhd or prescription medicine? If i give him vitamins, what should i give him?
I take both, along with going to a psychologist. I take fish oil, a multivitamin, vitamin E and Vyvanse. I think they all work well together. I also find that going to a psychologist is important because she teaches me how to cope with stress and adapt to other ADHD-related issues.
Thanks for your Reply!
