James--
May I quote the above?? It's perfect and of course I'll cite you...

Tresni--
here's a link on DMAE
http://www.tnp.com/substance.asp?ID=978
It's not entirely safe *and* it doesn't look like we
know how it works.
Forgive me for asking the obvious but if you experience depression
along with ADD, like me and zillions of others BTW, why not try
anti-depress. meds?
Your pdoc needs a bit of skill bcuz not all ADs go well with stimulants
but many people, myself included, do extremely well with this combo.
Aside from James' point above, supplements make me nervous bcuz there's
little to no regulation of them. For all you know you could be ingesting
powdered weasel guts. I do realize that quality manufacturers can produce
superb products.
I'm also nervous about interactions with meds -- DMAE and ritalin can both
lower seizure thresholds in susceptible folks: what else tho? And tyrosine?
Have you tried the med checker at DrKoop.com? I *think* it does supplements
and vitamins, along with food and meds.

Good luck and be careful.
S.
