    Letters to the Editor...

    When we were kids, my mother would crush a
    pill between two spoons, then add a little
    water and sugar to help us take a pill. All
    we had to do was swollow the spoonful.


    So where is your reply to the ADD letter?
    I am also interested in Focus Factor.


    Here is a copy of the letter to which Dennis


    I have an eight year old son. I've been told
    by several people including his teacher and
    family doctor that he has ADD. I am a
    teacher's aide so I am familar with the
    signs. I do think he is ADD. The doctor
    tried to put him on Concerta. My son would
    not/could not swallow the pill. We tried
    everything (putting in jello, ice cream and
    applesauce). We used a straw finally after
    nothing else would work. We were able to
    blow the pill down his throat 3 days in a
    row. He then put up a fight about that. We
    are so frustrated! How can we get him the
    help he needs? He will be in Third grade
    next year. I heard about a medicine called
    Focus Factor. It was on a paid advertisement
    commercial. Have you ever heard of this? If
    so, what do you know about it? From what I
    understand, there is a chewable. This would
    be fantastic! Please advise me. I am
    desperate to help my son!
