... ahusemen, I use L-Tyrosine as an adjunct to stimulant meds. I feel it (and zinc) enhance the meds anti-add properties hence I can keep the dose of the med on the low side.

... Tyrosine is not only good for ADD, but also depression. So lifting your spirits is a rather nice side effect when taking it for ADD. The doses for children would be between 200mg-500mg daily, unless this dose has been tried without any success. For adults it is between 500-1,500mg daily. It will take a while for any supplement to work its best but its not impossible... (5 replies)

... Stitch, I believe they do. I noticed I typoed in my post. It should have read, I feel foggy headed with NO stimulant meds - i.e. no adderall. Both zinc and :-tyrosine seem to have some ADHD symptom relief properties. Just not enough without stimulant meds. So, yes, I experience brain chem stability when on stimulants coupled with zinc and tyrosin. At the very least, minimal... (29 replies)
... Ritalin. They mostly complained about stomach upset. Me too. But not at 50mg. At 150 mg I was naseauseated all day. 3000mg of tyrosine put me off my emotional rocker. Be careful if you try either on your kids! ... (29 replies)
... ahuseman, I know there are studies proving the efficacy of zinc with stimulants and the lack of efficacy alone. Anecdotally, I experience that with L-Tyrosine. But let's do a little extrapolating. Both L-Tyrosine and Zinc must have some ADHD symptom relief properties, otherwise, why would they assist the stimulants? My conclusion, based on rather scant evidence, is if your... (3 replies)

... ke only seasonal depression, it sounds like depression that gets worse due to the seasons. If your doctor isn't listening to your concerns and insists that it is ADD get another opinion.

... years old. Nevertheless, I once was, milleniums ago, an ADHD child and at a time when ADHD was unheard of in the school systems. That being said, I believe that ADD meds along with therapy would have made a radical difference in avoiding some serious mistakes including drug abuse in my late teens and early twenties. Why? ...

... ahuseman, Do you have the hyperactive component? If so, you might try DMAE. It is available at health food stores, brick-n-mortar or net. I am ADD, no H. I tried DMAE and it made me sleepy. At one time it was a prescription med for ADHD. I have no trouble seeing how it can have a calming effect which should help concentration issues. If you should try it, be advised... (3 replies)

... You may want to try a combination of Rhodiola, L-Tyrosine, and 5-HTP. Seems to do pretty well for me. I've never been diagnosed with ADD, but I know I have it. I think doing many drugs over the years has given me ADD. With this combo, vitamin C, B-complex, calcium citrate, and magnesium; I feel much better. (3 replies)

... Sandy, Natural supplements do effect each person (child or adult) differently. adhdmama's experience is not unique. To add insult to injury so do prescription meds - that is - affect each person differently. Given your daughter's wear-off-fast history with meds, I doubt if Concerta will give her 12 hour efficacy but it may give her 6 to 7 hours which would get her... (3 replies)
