    I’ve talked to an expert regarding Omega 3 and specifically EPA.

    #1 2,513 mg of EPA per day should not be given to a child, it’s way too much.

    #2 For 10-13 year olds the amount of EPA should not exceed 1000 mg. Starting from 14 years, you can give them 1,500 mg of EPA.

    #3 If your child eats a normal balanced diet and you are considering giving them Omega 3 JUST for ADHD, there is no need to give them full Omega 3 complex (with DHA and the rest). Give them just EPA – 1000 mg for 10-13 year olds, 1,500 mg for older kids – always with food that contains healthy fats.

    Yep, my replies don’t get moderated, just get published immediately.

    Dear Moderator, would you please release my post about Omega 3 with high EPA?

    I’ve been waiting for my post to be published for over 12 hours. Is that normal for this forum? However, my reply to someone else’s post was published right away. Will see how THIS reply does 🙂

    About two years ago we completed a neurofeedback treatment course (over 20 sessions) for our then 8 year old son’s ADHD with zero result, literally – ZERO. And yes, it was very expensive – $7,000 down the drain. (We live in New York, maybe elsewhere it’s cheaper)

    20 mg of vyvanse for a 4 year old is just shocking 🙁 I would never take my child to that doctor ever again. I hope you find a good child psychiatrist
