Has anyone heard of this? The website says it's FDA approved, and considered a "homeopathic treatment" bc it's all natural ingredients. As such, there are no crazy side effects etc. It's treatment for symptoms of ADHD, which can also be disruptive symptoms of autism. I asked our therapist, and she is supposed to be looking into it, but I thought I'd ask. I came across the website randomly while looking for something else yesterday.

It looks safe. I did read it can cause loose stools and sores in the mouth though. I wonder if thats from taking it without mixing it with any water?



I think its smart you're talking to his doctors before starting it though. My son has autism and exhibits a lot of the symptoms this drug claims it helps, but since hes only 5 his pedi didnt want to diagnose or treat him with anything extra until hes a little older. Hes already taking an autism medication.

We are on zero meds besides Melatonin. At his re-eval last November, everyone said he was exhibiting signs of ADHD as well, and that there were like 3 actual meds that could help by treating the ADHD symptoms since autism and ADHD often have similar traits. I think the sores are if you take it directly orally vs mixing it in water. I honestly dont see what it could hurt, but I also dont want to shell out for smoke and mirror treatments kwim? I feel like if some of his issues were addressed he could benefit more from his therapy, but since he is so young no one wants to "drug him up". And i certainly don't either, but we only have one more year before Kindergarten I feel like we need to be getting really serious.
