Review for Erowid Center, Grass Valley, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I was born with Inattentive ADHD, central auditory processing, and mild dyspraxia. For me, coffee - caffeine compounds (Tirend, NoDoz - 100 mg caffeine/other ingredients) work better than Ritalin, Dexedrine, Adderall, Vyvanse, etc. for my Inattentive ADHD. I am also extremely sensitive to a few (not all) food additives such as the artificial sweetener, sodium saccharin, and the artificial color, Yellow No. 5 - tartrazine. I believe in full disclosure ingredient labeling for both FDA approved medicines and foods. X-ref: Modern Nutrition Discussion Group Gross
and fine motor control, body balance, crossing the midline of the body,
apraxia, dyspraxia, dysmetria, etc. Thank you for the information available/discussions available at Charles Thomas Wild, ADHD author - How To (1981) and Best Way (1983) books - X-ref: Awakenings movie (1990); Limitless movie (2011). Concepts: paying attention, concentration, attention span, sustained attention, memory, neurology, ADHD, brain concussions, repeated sports concussions, etc. Key book: How To Cure Hyperactivity (paperback book) about Inattentive ADHD (1981) by C. Thomas Wild with Anita Uhl Brothers, M.D.: Caffeine (Tirend, NoDoz) works for some with ADHD; food additives need better labels - a true story.
