Can too much manganese lead to increased and uncontrolled anger in a 10-yr-old with adhd?

Can too much manganese lead to increased and uncontrolled anger in a 10-yr-old with adhd?

Unlikely: I'm not sure what extremely high levels of manganese would do to a person, but I doubt it would cause only increased anger. If you know why it's elevated, stop the cause and see what happens. If you don't know, find a physician to help figure it out. Anger is not uncommon with adhd. If it is new, looking for what has changed is worthwhile; if chronic, work with a professional on that issue. ...Read more

Anecdotal advice: There is no compelling evidence to suggest that manganese and vitamin B complex can help with Meniere's - patients may experience the placebo effect. Important not to overdose on these OTC products. Are you taking acetazolamide and/or on a low-salt diet? See your neurologist or ENT physician for further discussion. Http://www. Utmb.

Yes!: This sounds like a formula well-designed for bone health. Supplements work in symergy. You can't absorb calcium if you are low in vit d.

What is best pain medication?

There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain.

In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
