Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder

Glyconutritional Products and ADD

02/17/2005

Question:

Have you seen benefits from daily use of glyconutrional products for young girls with ADD(12 yrs) and who are on stratera and adderal meds?

Answer:

I have not seen benefits from these but I have not really studied it so, I am sorry, my comments do not help much. I am only aware of one study, done about seven years back, that seemed to find a small benefit for a couple of weeks but I think that study was done by a company selling the products. Although I feel there are likely nutritional aids for both children and adults with at least some forms of AD/HD, we don't have a good handle yet on who will benefit and from what.
