Has anyone tried Fish Oil supplements as a treatment for ADD/ADHD with any success?

Yes, we tried for more than 2 years, with no noticible difference.

Hi my daughter as not been diagnosed with adhd but she is very hyper, she is also very behind at school to do with concentration, she is due to go into year 2 in Sept and can write a few words mainly names of the family like her younger sister, mum dad she does get mixed up with similar letters ie b, d writes some letters back to front. She can count to 20 but still gets mixed up writing numbers after 10. She was a late speaker but i never pushed for speech therapy. In fact i have never pushed for anything but now i am concerned as i think she is still at reception level. She recognises a few key words when reading but that is it. She does small group work, i will have a word with her new teacher when she goes back and see what they say. But i tried her with omega 3 capsules they did work on her concentration levels better and i did see a slight difference in her behaviour. So they did work for Melissa. I would try them out and if they work then brilliant. Go for it. Sharon x
