Hi all. Just wondering how many of you have your ADD children on fish oil?
I've read numerous times about how it can be helpful for ADD kids and wanted to try it with my son who is ADD and PDD or Asperger's (getting official diagnosis soon from a children's hospital).
I called my son's dr. who is a family physician, not a pediatrician, and her nurse returned the message after talking with her, saying that she wasn't up on fish oil for kids and I would have to wait until his next appt. and talk to her. This wasn't what I wanted to hear, because his appt. isn't until the end of March.
We go to a children's hospital for a consultation in a little over a week, so I plan on asking them about the fish oil before I do anything. I feel certain that they could give me more information.
What I'm wondering is who all is giving this to their children and what amounts are you giving? I know there are some of you doing this. Thanks for your information.
