My son has ADHD and is on meds for it. I however would like to get him off the stimulant and put him on something else. I was researching intuitive. I have read good things about it. Does anyone take this or their kids? Do you like it? why and why not? Thanks for all the help! And please if you have a problem with it dont read it or leave any nast comments i am looking for advise only!

 I don't know much about that but there are lots of moms of kids with ADD and ADHD on this group who may be able to help you:

My son has ADD and is on meds also he takes 10 mgs of adderall and 10 mgs of Prozac for anxiety. Seems to work well.

I don't know much about it... my daughter had ADHD symptoms until she was almost 6 but... it turned out to be something else, so we never medicated, but I'll give you a bump and hope you find what you need

I have my son on Ritalin la and it works great for him. Why do you want your child off? Are you having side effects?

Intuitive was one of the many stimulants I tried for my DS. I don't remember specifically why we didn't like it. We ended up going through a gambit of stimulants before deciding to move on to anti-depressants. If Intuitive is not helping, I would consider trying a different type of medication for different receptors of the brain instead of substituting for another stimulant.
