Q.

Lack of concetration

Hi DR, my child is 8 years old and he suffering from lack of concentration. Our doctor subscribed him Ritalin, but I'm very skeptical about this medication. I bought him Brain Child Multivit and Fish oil burstlets as well as NeuroVance. Please advise

Methylphenidate is the "gold standard" for treatment of confirmed ADHD. Omega 3 and 6 Free fatty acids are a good supplement - but not treatment. Please see http://renataschoeman.co.za/is-adhd-a-fairytale/ for more information on the medication and other possible concerns you may have.
