Question:

I have recently read that Omega 3 supplements may help children with ADD. What would be a proper dosage for a child with ADD, taking Concerta 54 mg, age 10, weighing about 60 pounds? Also, what would be a proper dosage for an adult female taking Lipitor, and facing a family history of heart disease?

Answer:
