The outcomes of combination omega-3 fatty acid supplementation compared to traditional stimulant treatment alone, on symptoms of inattention and hyperactivity/impulsivity will be examined. If adjunct therapy with fatty acids reduces ADHD symptoms, clinicians may be able to decrease traditional stimulant doses which would, in theory, reduce the negative side effects associated with that drug class and improve the patient’s quality of life.
