We want to take Alex off the medication we want to try helping him without medication. I found a vitamin that people say that does wonders for add and ADHD kids, it takes 6-8 weeks to see a difference. I took him off for two days and he was a problem kid. Is it safe to take him off the medication. We never had problems with him even before he was on any medication.

No do not take him off the medication with out speaking to your doctor first. I take a lot of medications for things like that ADHD OCD Etc. and If I go more than two days without I become ill and feel very shaken and weak . Not a good idea to stop cold turkey but if you want to do it without meds talk to a doctor there are ways, I don't take anything for my ADHD and do fine.
