Synaptol is a homeopathic medicine that is specially formulated to enhance mental focus, attention, memory and the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder include difficulty concentrating or listening, impulsiveness, disorganization, inattention, forgetfulness, hyperactivity, trouble following directions, and challenges reading or writing.
It is typically taken orally twice per day. It may take several days to weeks in order to see the full effects of the medication. The reason is that every individual is different and reacts to medications differently, especially children compared to adults.
Unlike Ritalin, Adderall, and other stimulant ADHD medications, this supplement is non-addictive and the side effects are minimal. As a result, it is better tolerated among patients than amphetamine-based ADHD medications such as Ritalin. This also makes it the preferred choice of parents who are leery of medicating their children.
In my clinical experience, this supplement either works very, very well or has very little effect. There tends to be little middle ground: in the folks for whom this supplement worked, it worked really well. They reported symptom relief including increased focus, calm and quieter mind, and improved organizational abilities.
It comes with a 90-day money-back guarantee and is considered a nutritional or diet supplement. It is also safe; it contains mostly mostly plants and herbs.
Another benefit is that this supplement is for everyone; it can be used by children, teens, and adults.
The most common reported side effect is nausea, which is reported by a small number of patients according to the trials.
These minimal side effects stand in stark contrast when compared to powerful stimulant-based ADHD medications such as Rtalin, Adderall, etc. Common side effects of Ritalin, Adderall, etc. often include nausea, headaches, insomnia and other sleep disturbances, agitation, etc.
I've tried Synaptol with my own son who suffers from ADHD, and many of my patients have tried it on their own with no reported no side effects, not even mild side effects.
Should you try it? As a general rule, it is aways best to consult your doctor prior to taking any new medications or supplements.
Another important thing to keep in mind is to remain patient and remember that medications affect everyone differently. This means that with respect to ADHD and any psychiatric medications, there is often a bit of trial and error involved in order to find the right balance for each individual.
