Vaxa Attend

Has anyone tried an amino acid supplement sold by Vaxa called attend?
If so, does it help?

Yes, I have. "Attend" is absolutely, positively WORTHLESS mitigant of my ADHD symptoms.

ADHD is a named disorder with a defined cluster of symptoms. Many other diseases and many, many other factors can produce attention deficit problems. My best guess is when someone finds "Attend" or similar "natural" products helpful that it is either 1) Placebo effect, or 2) the product is effective but the diorder is not ADHD.

Researchers have looked everywhere imagineable for substances that are effectual for ADHD. So far they have come up with stimulants and antidepressants with stimulant properties most noteably Strattera but also Wellbutrin, Effexor and I am sure many others unknown to me.

I tried everything to "fix" my symptoms without prescription drugs. Nothing had any lasting efficacy beyond that initial hope (placebo effect) generated by annecdotal customer testimonials that "this product really works."

If you truly have the ADHD disorder and it is more than just a mild case, in all probability (not absolutely) either one of the stimulating antidepressants or a stimulant class med or perhaps a combination of meds in those classes is your only hope.

You need a highly qualified psychiatrist to guide you through the crazy-med labyrinth or more harm will come to you than good.

The purveryors of the so-called natural products claim they will do you no harm. Lies. I considered the big dent in my wallet and the postponement in getting effectual help "harm."
