Our First Impression
VAXA’s Attend is designed for people who suffer from ADHD to have better focus, maintain a longer attention span, and reduced impulse tendencies. The most interesting aspect of this product is that it does not contain a lot of nootropics that we are used to handling. Instead, Attend contains homeopathic ingredients. Homeopathy is based on the idea that the body is capable of self-healing. For this reason, Attend’s formula includes substances that boost our immune system as well as compounds that help to regulate mental focus.
Attend is produced by VAXA – a Swedish company focused on homeopathic medicine and dietary supplements since 1987. The company has gained a lot of respect over the past decade for its dedication to create high-quality products.
The product is available for purchase on Amazon.com, iHerb.com or VAXA.com.

- Kali Phosphoricum: The chemical name for this substance is Potassium phosphate. Has been proven to reduce irritability and hyperactivity of ADHD patients.

- Argentum Nitricum: Improves anxiety, depression, and nervousness.
- Fluoricum Acidum: Relaxes ADHD patients.
- Valeriana offficinalis: Has anxiolytic properties, meaning it reduces irritability.
- Hyoscyamus niger: Works with the neurotransmitter responsible for learning – acetylcholine. Enhances focus and reduces impulse tendencies.
A friend of a friend tried this product before asking us to write a review on it because she was so impressed with the results. She said that taking 3 capsules twice a day was the dose she needed, particularly during exam periods when concentration was absolutely crucial. The user mentioned that the best part about Attend is that it didn’t bring any negative side effects. She did not experience headaches or trouble sleeping, which is typically the case with other prescription medications such as Adderall.
One of our readers also requested that we talk about this product because his cousin with ADHD tried it and found reasonably good outcomes. While the user was able to focus more and for longer periods of time, he felt a lot calmer than he was expecting to. This makes sense, considering the fact that Attend’s formula contains a lot of substances with anxiolytic properties (reduces irritability and anxiety levels).
“My son (10) has ADHD inattentive. He is not hyperactive, but has a lot of trouble staying on task. We’ve tried some other things and so I thought we could give this a try. We are taking 1 in the AM and 1 in the afternoon.
I am happy to report no adverse side affects besides getting him to swallow the thing:) His grades seem to be improving and I’ve noticed his attitude is slightly improved overall. He just seems in a better mood than before.
I cannot say anything specific the pill has done so I’m trying it for another couple of months to see if the trend continues to improve.”

“So the net/net is yes, I started seeing a difference at the end of the second month. We started on the strategy pack. The Extress for the husband and son. The Memorin for myself and our son.
I started my 14 year old son, in January, with the Attend product. We (I) have been avoiding using ADHD meds consistently over the past 5 years because, of their side effects and long term risks. Our family GP and I started experimenting with different ADHD medication (there are dozens on the market) he was in the 4th grade. His current teachers were adamant that his behavior was intolerant to their classes and his quality of work was not what he was capable of.
He’s a good kid, never in any serious trouble, just the usual “looking for attention” behavior. He’s kind of a leader and the proverbial class clown. He is a funny guy, if you’re not trying to teach a class of high school students. Is this what every comedian’s mother has had to deal with? He is generally popular with his peers, but slightly immature for his age. As parents, we were so tired of our 9 years, quarterly trips, up to meet the teachers routine. It was always the same “buckle down, you can do it” speech. It would work for a month or so.
Why are so many millions of kids screaming in need for ADHD meds? Hmm, this is not a good thing for our society and it truly mostly our society. So after a year of research and purchasing a lot of books, talking to counselors, and physicians, ((I’ve spent a mini fortune, but I (you) need to know)) the general conclusion to all these books and consultations, it came down to diet, sleep and exercise.
So our family GP said give the Attend product a try, you’re probably wasting your money. Ah-ha, not if it money back guaranteed, right? What pharmaceutical company offers that? He just smiled at me.
We kept him on his ADHD meds, for his teacher’s sanity, my son’s and ours. Being a teenage boy, he wasn’t happy about me chasing him down to take bi-daily supplements. Being a teenage boy, he wasn’t happy about me taking away pre-packaged and boxed foods (yes, all the boxed foods, including his favorite cereals and cookies, I did it slowly, I’m not cruel, he was addicted.) Being a teenage boy, he wasn’t happy about going to bed starting around 9pm. He is OK as far as the exercise part though, because when you hyper-active you need something to do and your usually in a lot of activities.
As I said, I couldn’t get much in him, 1 capsule in the AM and 1 capsule in the PM. 4 months later he’s now on board and he takes and array of supplements, including essential 2 – Omega 3’s 1000 mg. each, 1 AM B-Complex 5000mcg, 60 mg. CoQ2 Enzymes, and Whole Foods: Super Multi (that includes calcium/magnesium, extremely important.)
I didn’t know anything about homeopathic medicines or nutritional supplements last year at this time. Vaxa’s Attend, Memorin and Extress are all natural with positively and absolutely no side effects. If there any gastro problems, it’s going to be our (your) dietary choices. No weight gain can come from a B-complex, enzymes and homeopathic remedies, as someone’s doctor suggested in an early review.
ADHD/Memory/Stress in internal imbalance. The “Brain” needs Omega’s 3-6-9 and quality B-Complex to function properly. The enzymes merely help digest and process the foods our body is being given. The homeopathic component is for calming and focusing, all really good stuff and expensive if you bought it all individually.
We’ve reduced our son’s ADHD meds from 40mg to 20mg. He’s got finals coming up over the next few weeks and I’m not willing to let him fly cold turkey. This summer I’ll be able to supervise this whole process more closely. I’m sure he still not making the best food choice at school (yes, I even tried making his lunch again, we digressed on that issue.) The ultimate goal is to get him off ADHD meds. Our family physician is curiously watching and would love to see the same results we all wish for.
…It’s not a 1 pill wonder like our society wants, it was lifestyle change. Our family won’t go back to our old lifestyle of convenient boxed or packaged foods, we eat whole foods now. We go to bed early and we walk/exercise everyday.
Good luck… after reading all that I’ve read, I hope this helps you on your journey to find the right answers for you and your child, it is not the mass-marketed answers.”

A bottle contains 60 capsules and costs $24.40 on Amazon.com. The recommended dose is 2-4 capsules per day, meaning that the bottle could last up to a month. However, during periods of concentration difficulties, it is advised to take 3-4 capsules twice daily for 2-4 weeks. As a result, the bottle could last from 10 days to a month depending on your needs.
