You can buy Synaptol through Amazon.com. They have 28 customer reviews averaging 2.9 out a possible five. You can go to Amazon to read what people said. It’s probably as good a place as any for decision making information. A bottle costs about $30, but doesn’t indicate dosage information.

Following is a sample of the reviews (honest):

1.0 out of 5 stars Please check ingredients!, May 31, 2012

By Rowyntree (Chesterton, IN United States) – See all my reviewsThis review is from: Synaptol ADD ADHD Symptom Relief Medicine for Children and Adults. All-Natural Homeopathic Medicine Quickly Relieves ADD ADHD Symptoms Including Hyperactivity, Inattentiveness, and Difficulty Concentrating. 1 Bottle – Direct from Manufacturer. (Health and Beauty)

The following contains the list of ingredients in Synaptol as provided by their website. Homeopathic and natural do not automatically mean they are safe. It’s been scientifically proven that a group given placebos versus a tried & true medication will show improvement. There’s a lot in Synaptol that I myself would not take, let alone give to my child. PLEASE CHECK INGREDIENTS BEFORE YOU GIVE ANYTHING TO YOUR CHILD.


Adrenalium is a sweetener

B. Tinctoria is used as an antiseptic, to treat sore muscles, as a laxative, treats scarlet fever (what does a laxative has to do with ADD?)

S. Laterifolia is used to treat rabies, tremors and is an antispasmodic (you’re going to need that antispasmodic if you’re using a laxative)

Medorrhinum is used to treat UTI’s, ovarian pain, testicular pain, genital warts & herpes (I don’t believe these are related to ADD)

Phosphorus is used for anxiety, fear, digestive disorders, and respiratory ailments (you’re going to have digestive disorders due to all the laxatives in this concoction)

V.Odorata is used for congestion and coughs (What does this have to do with ADD?)

A. Mellifca is used for hives, UTI’s, allergies, sore throats, rashes and constipation (oh look, another laxative!)

A. Sativa is used for anxiety, fatigue and depression (I think this is only thrown in so they can make their claims. When you consider all the other junk thrown in, this tiny amount can’t help)

S. Moschatus is used in perfumes in place of musk (so why use it in an ADD medication)

Litsea Cubeba is an anti-inflammatory, used for it’s calming properties and for fatigue, anxiety and depression (again, it’s in a tiny amount, so it’s not going to help)

Aesculus Hippocastanum is used for hemorrhoids (which you got from all the laxatives)

Madia Elegans (Wild Coreoposis, Tarweed) the seeds are eaten for food, the oil is used for treating burns (good to know this ADD medication will also treat those pesky burns)

Mentha Piperita (Peppermint) is used for indigestion and gas (which you now have because of the laxatives)

Myosotis Sylvatica (Forget Me Not) is used for the lungs, coughs, colds, diarrhea, nose bleeds (this will help stop the constant diarrhea you now have thanks to the laxatives)

Ranunculus Occidentalis (Buttercup) was used as a poison by native North American Indians, it’s also used for colds, headaches and upper respiratory ailments (not related to ADD)

Scleranthus Annuus is used for mood swings and motion sickness (possibly help, but in such a small amount, doubtful)
