My apologies for the delay in response. Eye Q is a supplement used to boost the concentration of children with ADD, or similar attention difficulties. It is a high concentrate of omega oils which are needed for optimal brain functioning, yet are largely lacking in our diets due to quality and processing of foods. Eye Q can assist children and adults with ADD but it is not a 'cure'. Furthermore, it is unlikely to assist with the hyperactive behaviours of your son. In some cases children on Eye Q have seemed calmer but this is usually due to increased confidence which reduces the need for 'acting out' behaviour. There are a number of medications available - Ritalin and Strattera as Lilly explained, and Concerta. Each have their benefits and side effects, and unfortunately it is impossible to say which is the best one as every person will react differently. There are other products similar to Eye Q such as Biostrath and ADDvance which all claim to improve symptoms of ADD. To add to the list of options available, some children have benefited from programmes such as Dore, ILT and Cognitive Behavioural Techniques. Some children respond very well with a strict routine and participating in a variety of sports. I fear I may have provided more questions than answers here - I would suggest sitting with the medical practitioner who diagnosed your son and discuss the different treatments available from medication to alternative treatments. Please feel free to contact me should you have any questions.
