In Reply to: I am a 19 y/o female w/DD, and I feel I am too old to be taking Ritalin...any natural alternatives? posted by Anne on September 02, 2000 at 13:55:45:
: I have always been a straight A student (which just goes to show that ADD is NOT synonomous with stupid, as many people mistakenly believe) but I am not 19 and in college (going to school to be a Police Officer, no less) and I feel too old to be taking Ritalin. However, I am kind of...forgetful. Any suggestions? I am sick of taking prescription meds...I am looking for a vitamin supplement or maybe something herbal?
: Thanks in advance
People, do you not know the side effects of Ritalin,ect.? There are better alternatives. Do some of your own research.
Try reading a few books that address the root of the problem: Smart Moves by Carla Hannaford,Ph.D.; Evolution's End by Joseph Chilton Pearce; The Drama Of the Gifted Child by Alice Miller. They have other great books as do other researchers.
There is MUCH info out there. Go get it. Don't rely on one source.
P.S. ADD/HD is NOT a Ritalin deficiency.
