Hi everyone I haven't been on in a while but I have some questions regarding ADHD meds and "alternative drugs". Now here is my dillema.....My daughter was DX in March of this year and we have been on Ritalin and Adderall. I HATE THESE DRUGS!!!!!!
She is no where near her "old" self. Irretable nasty mean fights with her friends etc...... I have done a lot of research the last couple days regarding essential fatty acids (Omega 3 & 6), magnesium deficencies and a few other that I am going to try. I bought some Fax Seed Oil but am not sure if I can start it with her being on the meds.
Has anyone gotten their ADHD children tested for these types of problems. Blood test or any other alternatives?
Please help I need some advice!!
