[b]free spirit- I had my son on becamed over the summer and ( the kind from neurogenis, I hope we are talking the same stuff?!)It did help with his anxiety but not for focus or impulsivity. May I ask your dosage. and how long it takes b/4 you saw results., I would really like to take him off adderall, but he has become so much more self confident and is doing better in school. any replies would be appreciated.thanks[/b][/quote]

Hi, well like I said my dose is between 3-6 caps daily. BeCalm'd, DL-phenylalanine, 5-HTP, L-Glutamine, and some vitamins.. (is that the one you're talking about?) The same supplement will not work for everyone. L-Tyrosine works well for many with Inattentive type ADD or Classic ADHD without any other subtypes. Being Ring of Fire type the L-Tyrosine did not work well for me. DL-phenylalanine is also used to produce dopamine and norepinephrine (which play a role in ADHD) and it is contained in beCalmd. It works very well for me, even by itself. I prefer the beCalmd because it also has the l-glutamine which I also need. See L-Tyrosine and DL-phenylalanine both increase production of dopamine and norepinephrine but I can only tolerate the DL-phenylalanine. Since beCalmd worked well for his anxiety but not his focus maybe your son needs L-Tyrosine to help wake up his prefrontal cortex and allow him to concentrate.

Learn from the mistakes of others. You can't live long enough to make them all yourself.
