Q.

Ritalin isn't helping my child

My child was on ritalin which didn't help in his knowledge retention. We have been going down the herbal route but thinks he might need help with concentration. What is the best medication to use? Is Neucon available without a prescription?

Your child should have a comprehensive assessment to confirm his/her diagnosis prior to initiating any medication. None of the ADHD medication (if he/she indeed has ADHD) is avaiable without a script. Please consult a psychiatrist.
