Taking my son off his medication for adhd because the side effects they are giving him are horrible. It is breaking my heart watching him suffer. Want to try a more holistic approach and need suggestions and testimonials of what products work. He is 11 years old.

My son was on several different ADHD medications and had bad side effects from them as well. I don't know what type of medicine he is on but his doctor recommended Stratera and it was great for him!! He was able to take it and wean himself off the Adderal. Once he did, he started actually eating, the mood swings went away and we did not have to constantly adjust his dosage. This is a non narcotic med and we put him on it when he was about 12. When he was 14, he asked if he could take himself off the medicine. We allowed him to try it and he has not had any since. He's 21 now!

This isn't the place to ask this question. We don't allow solicitations and a question like this encourages them. You can ask this in the work from home communities where there are probably Melaleuca consultants.

The doctor suggested Stratera but at this point we are afraid to try yet another med. did your son have any side effects with this one?
