Q.

Homeopaetic medicine for ADD?

I got onto this site, because there was an article about homeopaetic medicine for ADHD and ADD. My daughter (11), who has been diagnosed as ADD, is on Concerta and doing fine, with some side effedts (loss of appetite, hair loss).

Does anyone know if this homeopaetic medicine is working well? It is apparently just called ADD and ADHD. Also. will Concerta have the same side effects as Ritalin?

Regards

Dear Just Wondering,

There are homeopathic treatments available for ADHD; whether or not they will work for your daughter I cannot say. If you wish to explore this route I would recommend visiting a qualified homeopath, or better yet a medical doctor who is a homeopath as well.

Concerta and Ritalin are likely to share symptoms as they have the same active ingredient.

Kind regards,
Delia
