ADD-care® SR (Capsules)
- Supplement Facts:
Serving Size: 1 Capsule
Servings per Container: 100
L-tyrosine 250 mg
GABA 150 mg
Methylcellulose 100 mg
Intended Use: The 9-hour time release formula may help support the improvement of focus, clarity, and symptoms similar to ADD/ADHD.
Directions: Typical dosage for adults varies from one to three capsules every 8 to 9 hours or as directed by your health care professional. Start by using one capsule a day. It is possible to feel a slight sedated feeling for an hour after ingestion so do not drive or operate machinery during the first dose. This is not unusual for homeopathic remedies. This feeling almost always is followed by increased focus and clarity. If there is any marked irritability or sedation after two days discontinue use. Clients report that it is safe for children to take under the supervision of a physician or health care professional. The typical dosage for children under 10 is one capsule a day.
The timing of the supplement is very important. Start with one capsule and in about an hour and a half rate yourself on a 1-10 scale for feeling alert, focused, and relaxed. The optimum therapeutic window is between 8-10. When the focus declines to 7 ½ take another capsule. This usually occurs between 8 to 9 hours after the first dose. For many people ADD-care® SR is a once a day supplement. It lasts longer than ADD-care® Original because of its time release formula. A second dose is only needed if a person requires alertness for longer than 9 hours a day.
If the focus and alertness is not 8-10 with a single dose once a day then increase the dosage to 2 capsules. If the focus is not optimum after a couple of days the dosage can be increased to 3 capsules for each dose. Do not take more than 3 capsules at a time. Most children over the age of 10 will need two capsules and some three. There is no problem with sleep or appetite disturbance. Children under 10 and sensitive adults may only require 1 capsule a day and a couple of days to become used to the supplement.
This supplement, like the stimulants, does not cure ADD. ADD-care® SR may help control the symptoms that are consistent with those found with ADD/ADHD and therefore the supplement must be taken on a daily basis to continue to be effective. It is also important to stop or limit simple carbohydrates such as sugar and to exercise. It is suggested that counseling by a qualified mental health practitioner be part of any effective treatment for Attention Deficit Disorder.
Most people use this supplement as a substitute for stimulants and prefer it due to the lack of side effects and the focus that they feel. Some people prefer the stimulants for daytime use and use ADD-care® SR in the late afternoon and evening due to the lack of appetite or sleep disturbance side effects. Some people also use the stimulants and ADD-care® SR at the same time as they have noticed that ADD-care® SR tends to lower the side effects that the stimulants can cause.
