Synaptol is advertised as a homeopathic remedy recommended for modulating symptoms associated with attention deficit problems (ADD/ADHD) in children as well as adults. It is manufactured by HelloLife.

HelloLife is a US producer of herbal alternatives and homeopathic solutions. They manufacture drugs and remedies in very modern facilities which operate under Good Manufacturing Practices Standards. Their products can be found on the Internet, at retailer locations and healthcare practitioners.

According to the manufacturer, Synaptol is a homeopathic medicine that aims to alleviate ADD/ADHD symptoms like difficulty concentrating, memory problems, lack of attention, and impulsiveness. HelloLife promotes the formula as being safer than synthetic drugs usually prescribed for ADD/ADHD problems however it does not cure your disease, since ADD/ADHD is not a curable condition. While Synaptol is an effective drug, according to the producer, you also have to improve your lifestyle in order to keep in control your symptoms. Thus, you should eat healthy food, get sufficient sleep and practice sports. The formula is addressed to children more than two years old and to adults.

We note that there used to be another producer who sold an ADD/ADHD medicine under the same name as HelloLife, but it stopped production for reasons which were not disclosed.

Ingredients

Synaptol includes the following ingredients: Apis mellifica, Aconitum ferox, Adrenalinum, Aesculus hippocastanum flos, Argentum nitricum, Avena sativa, Baptisia tinctoria, Cochlearia armoracia, Phosphorus, Scleranthus annuus, Scutellaria lateriflora, Sumbul, Viola odorata, citric acid, potassium sorbate, and purified ionized mineral water.

Product Features

All the active ingredients in Synaptol are listed in the US Homeopathic Pharmacopoeia. The formula is not however a cure for ADD/ADHD because these disorders are not actually technically curable. One core ingredient is apis mellifica. According to the manufacturer apis mellifica is useful for concentration problems, difficulties when studying, memory problems, if you suffer from restlessness and when you can't get yourself organized.

Apis mellifica is obtained from honey bees. It was developed in the nineteenth century by a homeopathic specialist. According to its main ailment claims based on anecdotal use, it is useful in treating insect and snake bites as well as headaches and painful urination. Homeopaths believe that remedies should be customized based on the patient's physical and mental characteristics. Therefore, if an individual is short tempered and impatient, apis mellifica may be useful, especially if the above mentioned symptoms are in relation to feelings of pain, swelling and inflammations. Nonetheless, there is not enough clinical research to back up the mixture's effectiveness or to assess its safety.

The daily intake recommended by the producer is 1ml twice per day if the patient weighs more than 50 lbs and 0.5 ml twice per day if they weigh 30-50 lbs. The manufacturer advises that you should take one dose in the morning and the second one in the evening. You can take the dose either with 8-12 oz of purified water or without. You should expect to see optimum results in 3-6 months, although many patients started to feel betters only a few hours after the administration of the first done. The product is not recommended for children less than two years of age, In addition, medical advice is required if you are pregnant or lactating. You should not administer the formula to children before having discussed with your doctor.

Conclusion

We recommend you to discuss with your doctor before using Synaptol so that you find out whether it may interact with other medication you may be taking for your medical condition(s).

We are looking into taking our 13 yr old son off Concerta. 1. It costs us $343 a month for this med 2. It is causing really bad anger issues with him 3. he has problems taking it. It hurts his throat with or without liquid. This is a whole lot cheeper than the med he is taking. However, I am researching more. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6 and has been on meds for 7 yrs now. Concerta is the second med he’s been on. Addrall quit working.

Hello L Hughes -
I was wondering how your son was doing? Have you tried Synaptol and taken your son off of Concerta? I am curious because my 9 yr old has ADHD and we had the same issue you did with concerta regaring the anger. We have also tried aderal and straterra. I would love to hear if your son is doing well on Synaptol. Thanks and take care.

As a psychiatrist interested in natural medicine, looks more like an immune system stabilizer; if it works, it’s probably for those who have some kind of occult inflammatory process going on(possibly gut allergy?) that may affect neurons and stresses the endocrine system etc etc which has further inhibitory effects on higher cortical function. Given how frequently this is a promotor or symptoms rarely recognized by allopaths, seems like a reasonable thing to try.

We are thinking of trying this product for our 14 yr old son. He has trouble in school with focus and attention,and acting out(figiting n the like). I’ve read some of the reviews and can identify with almost all, especially the,”LOOK..A SQUIRREL!!” analogy. So many things going through one mind at one time? We need something to help with the “Follow Through”…. of thought and work. Still reserching with added renew of hope in this product.
