Ritalin is intended to improve concentration, a decrease in hyperactivity is often noticed in those with ADHD as the child is better able to focus on the task at hand and exclude other stimuli. Ritalin, Concerta and Strattera are the most common medications for treating difficulties in concentration. Whether a supplement is enough or not I cannot guarantee: some children respond very well to products like Biostrath or Eye-Q (high Omega 3 and 6 supplements), while others do not. It may take up to 3 months to see a difference with supplements; if you do not notice a significant improvement please seek the advice of your paediatrician or GP, preferably in conjunction with the medical professional who diagnosed your son.
