Synaptol is a homeopathic medicine that is specially formulated to enhance mental focus, attention, memory and the symptoms of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
These symptoms 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.
It 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, it 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. Containing mostly plant-based ingredients, it can be used by children or adults.
The most common reported side effect is nausea, which is reported by a small number of patients according to the trials. In general, however, side effects are minimal. My own patients reported no side effects with this medication.
Should you try Synaptol? 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.
