Hi. My teenaged daughter is ADD. She was prescribed Adderall and Paxil. If you don't know about Dr. Amen's site, it would be a benefit to check it out. Take his ADD subtype test. According to his tests, our doctor put her on the above meds. I had some hesitation about the Paxil so I began to read about 5-HTP which is also a serotonin enhancer, but is natural with many fewer side effects. Luckily, a friend told me about a site, iHerb, that has several different brands and dosages. I weaned her from the Paxil,waited two weeks to make sure it was out of her system and then started her on 5-HTP. I'm seeing the same type of improvement in her impulsive behavior as I did when she was on Paxil. I'm glad that the iHerb site offered so many options. Good prices too. I hope this info helps. If anyone can find a suitable replacement for Adderall, please post a message. Thanks, J.V.
