There are absolutely NO gerbal products of any use in this situation. Ritalin and Concerta do help some kids, and should not be avoided IF the diagnosis and recommendation has been made by a competent child shrink or paediatrician. The only non-prescription product for which there is some accumulating evidence of value in this sort of situation, is Eye-Q

Hello daughter was also on Concerta however i found that she became a 'dud"...i.e. too relaxed / not being the normal livey child she is supposed to be. I stopped the medication and put her on eye Q and she is doing very well...getting 100% marks for her tests.

Good luck!

Nel, two of my friends took their sons off Ritalin and they're doing very well on Eye Q (Omega fatty acids), but each child is different and Eye Q didn't have the desired effect on my youngest son (he has ADHD with concentration problems). I tried to avoid Ritalin at all costs, but after trying almost every herbal products I could lay my hands on, costing me a fortune with no improvement in my son, I've had to opt for Concerta and the improvement in my son, is worth it. I hope you find a solution for your boy, and good luck!
