i am the mother of a 7 yr. old boy diagnosed at age 3 with borderline autism and adhd. ritalin has little or no effect and i wish to take him off of it and possibly find an herbal supplement to help him. i have tried to "surf the web" and have made little or no headway. does anyone have any sites that i can go to that will actually help me? i am not trying to change my son's autism--been blasted for that one already....just want him to be able to concentrate in school so that he can learn better. he is sometimes violent towards me, i can live with that. i am worried because he has to have a sleeping pill in order to sleep and the doctor just added zoloft to his meds to try and calm his obsessive compulsive problems. it seems like once one thing is under control, something else shows up to throw the mix back into chaos. i would greatly apprecciate any and all help given. i am especially interested in researching herbal or vitamin supplements. please email me--i do not know if i can find my way back here--got lost before i ended up here! LOL thanks, lisa
