Letters to the Editor...
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
