Can anxietin help with the side effects of Zoloft?

Could a coach help me out? I have started on Zoloft for anxiety and have been on 50mg for nearly a week. It might have been better to have started on 25mg but I'm here now. Side effects I'm having include nausea, diahorrea, cold sweats in bed (mostly close to time due to take medication) and some increased anxiety. I have been taking some homeopathy but would like to know if Anxietin will help with these side effects too, as they are all anxiety-triggered. Your help would be greatly appreciated.

Synaptol ADHD Narural medicine

My son has ADHD and is taking concerta prescription medication but have been concerned about his health he has loss of appetite, been complaining of headaches i have mentioned this to his paediatrician but she said to take him off the medication i took him off the medication cause i was concerned for my sons health and the long term affects of prescription medication. I noticed that my son is much happier now eats alot better and doesnt get headaches he also sleeps better. unfortunately there have been some concerns at his school with other children my son was alot quieter and when he was the prescription medication and was doing well at school he had an incident with a boy at school who physically hurt my son after that incident the principal mentioned about my son taking the concerta medication again and i told her my husband and i werent happy with our son taking the medication it was affecting his health we are concerned for out son he wasnt eating and getting headaches, we dont want our son to be taking prescription drugs for rest of his life. The principal wasnt very pleased with what i said but thats her problem its the schools responsibity to offer more support for children who have special needs. I was also concerned about the long term effects as my son was taking concerta medication for long time since the age of 6. I have read some reviews about Synaptol ADHD Natural medicine and think its a very effective natural medicine and relief symptom for children with ADHD. How do i order the Synaptol medication i noticed a contact number for Hellolife in USA and an International number may i ask do you have a contact number in Australia? I would like to have a chat and am interested in learning more about synaptol medication and to find how to order it or get it shipped out. from mary dellas

Please Help!!

I have been seeing my pain management doctor for a while now. I started off taking Hydrocodone, now I am on Roxicodone. I had my appointment for refill today, and he came in, refilled my medication, and dropped me. I had been in so much pain the previous month, that I ran out of my meds a week early. The problem is, is that after I ran out of my Roxicodone, I had a few Hydrocodone left over and took some of those. Needless to say, he found the Hydrocodone in my system......so he dropped me. Now I don't know what on Earth to do! He refilled my medication for one more month, but now I have to find another doctor. I need advice from someone who has been in my position at one point in time on where to go from here. Am I going to be able to be accepted by another pain doc now that I messed this up??? And if so, are they going to be willing to help me as much as he did??? Please HELP!!!! Thank you!

ADD/ADHD

I was dx. at age 60 (4yrs. ago) with ADD. I have taken Adderall XR all this time -except for 3 months to try Vyvance, which didn't help at all. I've gradually worked my way up to 45 mg of Adderall XR per day. I see my psychiatrist every 3 months and I have told him I feel my symptoms have become worse -especially with impulsiveness and distraction. He will increase the Adderall XR and outside of the Vyvance that is the only medication I've been offerred to get this under control. I would like to stop the Adderall XR and take the homeopathic medication this website recommends. Would I take it as the label instructs? -and should I start taking it before I phase out the Adderall? The self test offerred here showed I had ADHD symptoms. By outward appearances I am laid-back and slow moving without any signs of restlessness, but inside my mind can go faster than I can keep up with it! I can get coated over with "parallysis of will" and simply daydream away what needs to be done to be organized at home. I work 2 jobs in pediatric skilled home health nursing. I do use a planner with my work and force myself to complete my paperwork on time. My planner keeps me in line with being organized and prepared and a 'time- timer' has helped with time management issues. I have no routine at home and have no idea how to make a routine for getting my home organized, or my bills straight, or how to let go of un-necessary things that I have in 2 storage units and also taking up one room in my apartment after a divorce 3 yrs ago. At this rate my goal could include a 'mini-series' on Hoarders by next year! I didn't intend to put so much about myself into this message, but after reading so many positive results from others and relating so well to the articles I've read, I've realized I could have learned more about my symptoms and felt grounded and supported in a group setting to discover ways to face my symptoms and gain control of them, instead of avoiding them and allowing them to take control of me. I will appreciate any suggestions, advice, and/or steps to get organized, start the healthier homeopathic med, and begin living a healthier life and happier lifestyle!

Struggling here!

I am a mom who was formally diagnosed with ADHD 13 years ago. I was on stimulants until 3 years ago when I decided to go more natural. I homeschool a child who also exhibits ADHD tendencies. I have on and off toyed with the idea of getting back on Adderall but I keep canceling my appointment thinking to try something else. I don't want to get back on the Adderall but I'm drowning over here. There is so much "noise" in my head and I feel like I was a better mom on it but I just have read too many bad side effects. So much that we are not putting our 6 yo on anything but are doing the GF/CF diet (I'm on it as well) and detoxing her system. I need a natural something that works on adults because I really am in trouble. The homeopaths we have given our six year old don't work for me. Does anyone know of a natural solution for adults! Please help. There has to be something I can do without going back on a prescription. Thanks!

Need some help with my daughter :(

I have went to doctors before we left El paso, Texas, and he diagnosed her with ADD but my husband and i do not want her to be on medication. We dont believe in that part. So i ordered the Synaptol today and when i receive it will give it a few weeks to see if it takes effect. She has a rough time reading and that is hindering her spellling at school. I have come to my wits end. I want to do more to help her but sometimes i am just stuck. I dont want her to be on medication because of all the side effects. She is a healthy 8 yrs old and i want her to stay that way. If there is ways i change by cooking her different food that help stimulate the mind or other things please feel free to write. I like all the advice i can get while my husband is deployed to Afghanistan. Thank you for reading this.

combining synaptol with Vyvanse

My son is 16 and a jr in highschool.  He was diagnosed with adhd in 1st grade.  I have always been sad that I have to give him his stimulants in order for him to succeed in school.  I am excited to try Synaptol.  My question is: Can I combine Synaptol with the Vyvanse?  It is scary to take him off the meds since his grades plummet.  How can I know if synaptol works>  Will it start to work immediately like the stimulants or does it need time to get into his system.  If it works I will gladly take him off the stimulants!  The concern is that he can not risk a trial period acedemically. Thanks for your advice in advance. Julie

Arthro-IonX and stomach upset?

Hello! On Saturday I started giving my male cat 15 drops of Arthro-IonX (he is 10 lbs) and as of this morning (Monday) he is with an upset stomach and throwing up his food. Could this be a reaction to the medication? He is extremely sensitive to things and is very allergic. He has asthma and is on conventional medication (non steroidal) for it. I know it states there should be no side effects, maybe in some cats canker sores and/or loose bowels. What do you think about his throwing up? Please let me know what you think and also should I continue. I do know this could be part of his detox right? Thank you for you help.

Has anyone tried neurofeedback for ADD/ADHD?

I read a story about a family who had their child go through neurofeedback therapy to help with her ADD/ADHD. "Neurofeedback was initially developed by NASA in the 60s to improve a pilot’s attention and ability to focus on tasks. Neurofeedback works through a combination of visual and audio stimulation that is specific for each patient." What happens is you go into the specialist and they put sensors on your head and a couple on your ears. This reads your brain activity and modifies it to help you focus on one task at a time. After 10 sessions of this, the girl in the news story seemed to be able to focus and not need her medication. Any thoughts on this? Has anyone tried it?
