> Also, make sure your child starts off the day with a protien rich breakfast, instead of sugary cerals and drinks. Amino acids provided in protein are necessary along with fatty acids to provide the necessary nutrients to the brain. Things like eggsandwiches, peanut butter, cheese are high in protein.


Thank you so much for your help. Let me give you a little history here. We have been battling ADD for the last 3 years. We have tried every stimulant on the market. The stimulants proceeded to bring out a tic disorder that he was just diagnosed with. The stimulants make the tics worse. He does NOT have Tourettes, just a childhood tic disorder (so far anyway). So, we have switched to Strattera. He is on 30mg a day and it works very well for him. The only thing is that he takes Haldol(sp?) for his tics and it effects the Strattera. So, his attention is a little off at times. I am trying the Salmon Oil to see if it will give him that extra "boost" that he needs with his attention. He CANNOT take stimulants. Not only do they make his tics worse, but he has such ups and downs that he becomes depressed and extremely isolated. He did not sleep and he lost weight on the stims. Now, on the Strattera, he sleeps solid, he eats like a bear and is always in a great mood....no ups and downs like the stims. I purchased the 1000mg of salmon oil...it is the exact brand that you are using. I am only starting him on 1 pill instead of 2....the recommended dosage. I gave him his first pill last night and he did not have a problem swallowing it...they are huge! Should I give it to him in the morning with breakfast or at night with dinner? I am thrilled that this might help him. It is all natural, so why not try it? I am up for just about anything! Thanks again for your advise....more would be greatly appreciated!
