Hi Shelley,
 check with a nutrionist?

e.g. newbielink:http://www.yournutrition.co.uk/health_problems/depression_m.htm [nonactive]

These guys are in England and there is a bit about Pyroluria on this page. You can phone them.

The generic name for Risperdal is risperidone. It is one of the most widely used atypical antipsychotics. I think it is also the no. 1 agent currently in use in America. You will, without doubt, be able to get it in Australia.

Just my two cents on the topic...

I used to do work with high risk/violent youth, one of which was on a daily medication of resperidone 3x daily. Although the dosages were lower in their case due to age, we supplemented his diet with high end supplements and noticed a marked improvement in behavioral instances within the first weeks.

I would just like to say that while many people have different stances on the role of supplementation, I am a strong believer.

General science and the medical community is sloooowly starting to come around in realizing the benefits of supplementation as well. (JAMA - newbielink:http://www.humannutrition.com/JAMARecommendsSupplements.php [nonactive] )

Wasn't there some work done with supplements in hyperactive children as well?

I believe you're right. If you stumble across any journals or articles stating trials please pass along the info.

Haven't read much on that since my hyperactive stepson grew up.  There was also emphasis on food additives causing allergies, hence, the Feingold Diet which was all about limiting foods with certain additives that made hyperactives worse.  Even got down to added dyes in medicines.
