FAQ ON EQUAZEN®
HOW WELL DOES EQUAZEN® IMPROVE LEARNING ABILITIES?
In the Oxford Durham study children tripled their performance in reading and doubled their performance in spelling, over a 3 month period of taking EQUAZEN, versus the control group (placebo).1
WHEN WILL I SEE RESULTS?
In clinical studies with daily supplementation of EQUAZEN, first improvements begin to appear at about 4-6 weeks. The full effect is typically observed later, between 8 to 12 weeks. After 3 and 6 months of EQUAZEN supplementation, ADHD scores significantly decrease compared to placebo controls. Children who first took the placebo also decreased their ADHD scores once they switched to taking EQUAZEN.1
CAN EQUAZEN® BE TAKEN WITH ADHD MEDICATION?
Yes it can. The recommendation is to start EQUAZEN supplementation while continuing medication. Once you begin to feel improvements in learning abilities, attention or anxiousness (optimally after 3 months of taking EQUAZEN), consult your doctor to gradually lower the dose of medication. It is important to change only one factor at a time. EQUAZEN alone or combined with methylphenidate (MPH) significantly decreases ADHD symptoms.2
