Q.

Regte Medisyne

My seun is 7, hulle het die ADHD al opgetel op 3, begin met medikasie op 6. Hy is nou op Concerta 36mg, Tofranil 10 x 2 in die aande en Melaonon 3mg x1 in die aand. Is IQ goed vir hulle en ' n multivitamien en as wel wat stel U voor?

Dear Vanessa,
Apologies for the English reply. IQ was developed as an alternative to the prescription medications available for ADHD. All of the on-the-shelf products have high levels of Omega 3 and 6 which are essential fatty acids for brain development. Some children benefit greatly from it, while others see minimal or no benefits. Any multivitamin, which has limited colourants and preservatives will do well.
Kind regards,
Delia

Is it true that you must take ex IQ for at least 3 months before you can deside if it has an effect??does that go the same for other ''alternative'' meds?? Isn''t it just waisting time and not helping the child??3months on this...then 3 months on that...and in the meanwhile the child needs help NOW????
please help and say if Im wrong..
