Curious if any of you have used chocolate covered espresso beans for this treatment?
I bought some yesterday...we are going to experiment for the next week before her appt.
No clue about caffeine doses, etc; over the years on this board, some parents say it works for their kid, some say it doesn't (this is, of course, true for just about anything ADHD related!).
Meds--not sure if it'll help or not, but, I was pretty much against meds to start with (now, I'm a huge fan), what convinced me to try was, simply, that you could stop. It was only to see how it worked, if it worked. 99% of the side-effects go away once you stop (OK, this may depend on what med you start with). Mine's ADHD inattentive, too.
A child may HAVE ADHD, but it is not what they ARE. Never tell a child they ARE ADHD.
