> OK, here are a few initial hits I have for starters. I started looking into these as they are among the OTC supplements Dr. Amen has noticed some success with.

With respect to which disorder?

Definitely some benefits, but there's a bit of hype on the websites. For example, I'm not seeing any evidence for the ADHD link on Pubmed.

Considering the patented Pycnogenol is supposed to be very expensive, I see no reason to select it over other OPCs. If grape seed extract, hawthorne, or cranberry are cheaper, go for it. I'm going to try some.
