Does any add or adhd person or expert know which is better to be taking. I know that drugs have many bad side effects. I am 55 and have only known that I have add for about 10 years when my son was diagnosed with it. I have not started any meds till just recently(Straterra). So far it seems ok in the side effects department but I would rather take a natural product without side effects. Is there anyone who has experience with both of these? Straterra and Synaptol

Although I haven't experience Straterra, I can tell you that there is no comparison for the effects of a prescription to the effects of a homeopathic. Prescriptions alter how your brain produces, responds to, and receives signals. Homeopathics are designed to promote healthy function levels in the body. This is why so many customers with children on prescription ADHD medications will comment on the change in behavior. The prescriptions are the cause of this because it is altering the brain chemistry, which may help with the symptoms of ADHD but at what cost.

Either way, there is no cure for ADHD. Ultimately it boils down to what type of relief you are looking for. Synaptol (when I used the product) felt natural to me. It felt as if I were improving, versus changing (if that makes sense). Any time I've used an SSRI or NRI (Strattera is an NRI) I feel cloudy, foggy, or "different" as it's described. When I use homeopathics, I feel fresh, alert, and "better" as I call it. Yes, homeopathics may take a bit longer to get into your system, but it's still YOUR system

I hope this answer makes sense and helps you in your search for relief!
