Interesting. Its a 'medical food', that seems to be composed of omega 3's in a patented formula. I wonder how they got to patent omega 3's and why it is only available on prescription?
It sounds worth a try if it really is just an omega 3 combo. I find it hard to keep up the cost of the extremely high doses of omega 3's necessary for addressing all the so called symptoms of adhd. My kids take fish oil for general health, but i dont see its impact on my ds1's ability to listen in school, or my ds2's ability to keep still while riding the train (but he does so at school).
I just ordered cod liver oil...the point is, it all costs so much if 3 kids are taking this daily....
If i could get me some of that omega 3 in a prescription form where i pay nothing! Then i'll go for it!
My ds1 (who has trouble listening in school), started ritalin. I halve the dose the doctor recommended, and he only takes it in the am-so e's actually only taking a quarter of the dose the doc who barely knows him, and had trouble listening to me [/I] when in his office. The school was impressed with the results. I am supposed to follow up with the doctor but since its summer vacation it has all become completely irrelevant because his symptoms are only present in school. Still, i will tell the doc he is in summer camp (not), and that i would like him to try vayarin, and get another refill for ritalin so i dont have to waste yet more time in the fall.
