Attention Deficit Disorder
This is condition that affects both children & adults. There are a wide variety of symptoms that someone with this condition can have. Going to the ADD Association website www.add.org can help you determine whether this condition applies to you.
The usual cause of ADD is a problem with the dopamine system. Dopamine is a neurotransmitter crucial for mood, energy and cognitive function. It can be modulated in several ways. There are medications like Ritalin and Adderall that can help although they can cause side effects. Amino acids like tyrosine can improve the dopamine system as can activated B vitamins. I use these medications and supplements in my practice to achieve optimal cognitive function.
