ADHD & No More Adderrall!
is my story on how Plexus Slim has helped my
8 year old with ADHD. Since my son was about
3 years old, I knew he had a problem. Then,
and over the years I would notice that he
was overly hyper, could not concentrate,
liked things to be routine, would lie and
believe it, had anger issues, uncontrollable
noise would shut him down. Examples, radio,
vacuums, tv, people talking loudly or
laughing loudly. It hurt his ears so bad he
would be in fetal position. I say
uncontrollable because, if he was the cause
of the noise, it didnít bother him. I was
told from 3 yrs. old that heís just being a
little boy, he needs discipline, thereís
nothing wrong!! I fought with his teachers
because for little things he would get in a
world of trouble. If he needed to tell his
teachers something important, he would try
and tell them and they would very rudely
tell him to sit down and to shutup (not in
MS schools!!). He would argue with them so
he could say what he needed to say because,
if he didnít say it, he would forget it.
Then that would upset him. He needs one on
one and eye to eye. Coming from a family of
teachers, I know thatís hard with a class
full, but not impossible!
His self-esteem started slipping away. As
parents, we try so hard to build our
children up. Because of getting in trouble
at home for things he couldnít help and for
getting in trouble at school for trying to
tell a teacher something, he was going down.
Thought the world hated him. I actually
found that on a piece of paper in his room,Ē
Why does everyone hate me"! Not cool yaíll,
just not cool!!
I am a parent who does not like medication.
Thought if I could get teachers, friendís
parents and who ever else, to understand and
to help me, I could get away with no
medication. Everyone was awesome, but the
teachers. Again, not the MS teachers. I get
so angry just thinking about how this one
teacher did him. 2 years ago, my husband and
I broke down and had him tested for ADHD.
Doc confirms our thoughts and he is put on
Adderall 10mg twice a day. Of course it
started helping him and I was ecstatic. I
did not like what he was or the side effects
of it, but with the doctors assurance, we
stayed with it. Plexus came into my life a
few months back. I have used it, never
thought in a million years of having my boy
take it for ADHD. He has been on Plexus for
less than a week. AND thy hyperness has cut
down, but heís not a zombie! The arguments
have cut down, the tantrums have cut down,
his stress is gone, self-esteem is coming
back up, he is sleeping at night, he can sit
at the computer and play a game with out
bouncing in the chair. He no longer has the
dry look in his eyes. They sparkle and his
smile just shines, his laugh is one of the
best sounds I have heard in a long time.
When your child struggles with ADHD, ADD,
Autism, etc. You, as a parent, start
doubting yourself. What could I have done
different, what am I doing wrong, why cant
people just accept my child. Just like its
not their fault, its not your fault. Be
aware of the issue at hand, and do your best
to help. A child with either of the above or
more, is not spoiled, does not lack
discipline, they are loving and caring
children, they are smart beyond their years.
Give them a chance. Learn from them. Heaven
knows, I have learned so much from my 8 yr.
old. But please, if you donít want your
child on harsh prescriptions, if you donít
want them to go through the world feeling
unwanted or unloved, etc. Please give Plexus
a try. From mother to mother, from parent to
parent IT WORKS!!

The above was a
post by Leslie on a discussion board. Below
replies from Leslie to questions from others
Your welcome Jenn, I just hope it helps
someone. I try hard not to get angry, but
its hard. My boy is my everything. Seeing
him hurt daily and not understand why just
ripped my heart out. Please share it and
pass it along to others.

My son dosent have alot of caffeine because
of the ADHD, thats one of the reasons I like
him being on Plexus. Its caffeine and

Yes, just the Plexus Slim.
October 16, 2012 at 9:30pm
Mrs. Peggy, I give him one stick of Plexus
every morning before school. He didnt want
it yesterday morning so I didnt make him
take it. Lets just say, he will not go
without it anymore! lol
October 18, 2012 at 7:31am
My husband is starting a new position at
work, which means I will have my vehicle
more often now. I want to get an appt. made
next week and just take the Plexus in and
let him know what I am doing and how
wonderful it is working.
October 18, 2012 at 7:44am
We didnt have him on his meds all the time.
Only through the week, never the weekends.
So, it was on a weekend that I started him
on Plexus and just never put him back on the
October 18, 2012 at 7:38am
He is no longer on his medicine. My boy
loves to eat, lol. Like your grandson, he
didnt eat very much while on the medication.
Everytime I turn around hes asking for a
snack, lol. Hes actually sitting down at
dinner time now and eating! He loves to help
me cook now. I told him if you cook it, ya
gotta eat it!
October 18, 2012 at 7:36am
AND, hes not crazy about the taste of it,
but for the past 2 mornings he and my
daughter have gotten in there and made it up
themselves without me saying anything.
October 19, 2012 at 10:13pm
Because I am tired of giving him "legal
meth", which is what adderal is (or however
you spell it,lol) It worked great for him,
just didnt like any of the side effects of
it. Didnt want him at a young age to get
addicted to something. Addiction runs in my
family and the thought of him going through
what so many in my family has been through
scares me. Mrs. Peggy, I am taking him to
his doc. next week and will let him know
what I have been doing with him and for his
October 20, 2012 at 8:29am
Got docs approval today for my son to take
it. Said if its helping him great! He's not
losing weight he is finally gaining. Maybe
he will finally need new pants!
November 30, 2012 at 7:33pm
I'm sorry guys, y'all have made me
speechless. I'm not sure what to say to
everyone. I'm just so glad it's helping
everyone like it has helped my son.
November 30, 2012 at 9:08pm
My son has actually finally put weight on.
He has gained about 10 lbs. or so.

Both of my boys have been diagnosed with ADD
but we do not medicate. We homeschool so we
don't have to deal with PS teachers
harassing us about it. Anyway my 17 yr old
has always had anxiety and stomach problems.
He's been drinking Plexus Slim for about 3
weeks now. He mentions almost daily that he
hasn't had any stomach pains in weeks. It's
almost like he's mentally calculating how
long it's been, because he doesn't remember
a time in his life where his stomach didn't
hurt ... until now. We spent a whole day at
a local water park this week. He went down
nearly every slide/ride. In the past his
anxiety did not let him try new things. I'm
seeing a whole new person develop before my
eyes. One that's full of life. He's having
fun! I love Plexus and recommend it to every

I started giving it to my out of control 5
year old last week. I have a 15 yr old with
ADHD it was like living her pre-school years
all over again. She also has the same issues
of freaking out with unexpected loud noises.
My 5 year old was calmer and more focused
the very first day. And nicer. My 15 yr old
even commented a couple of days ago that the
5 year old was acting much better and she
didn't know I had started giving it to her.
I have an Ambassador,
Amber Richard Joseph,
that started her 5 year old on it last week
too and came home with a much better report
from school the very first day after
starting it. I have another Ambassador,
whose 15 year old brother takes it and is
loving it whereas he hated the Adderall and
didn't want to take it. I myself am off of
my Vyvanse since starting Plexus. There is
who comes to our meetings that has all four
of her ADHD boys on it. She swears by it.
All you can do is try it. I'm a believer!

have been struggling with ADHD all my life.
This story sounds a lot like my own. Even in
my professional life I struggle to control
my ADHD without taking Adderall. It
definitely turns me into a zombie, and the
type of work I'm in (sales) I need my
personality to shine each day! Sometimes my
concentration gets so bad that I have to
give in and take the harsh medicines at the
risk of having a dry personality all day. I
started using Plexus just yesterday and I
have noticed a major difference...this is
the miracle I have been waiting for all my
life! I can now maintain focus on my work
without any of the adverse affects! I would
recommend it to ANYONE who is has ADHD!

Our little boy is nine and we give his in
2-8oz. 1/2 in the morning and the other at
night to help him sleep. He also is eating
better. thank you Leslie for sharing because
it has helped a lot of people. Linda

My daughter has been on it the past week
also and it has been amazing!!! She is
focused, calm and centered! I also give her
the probio5 with the slim drink. Her teacher
is amazed at her difference & said Kaleigh
are u sick lol. I love it. And pediatrician
approves. Jessica Hotard

is my 9yr old (ADHD, SPD) 3rd day ON Plexus,
and OFF his meds! His behavior is better
than most days on his meds. He has hours of
Lego play in the last few days, so I would
say his focus is better also! Lol
I am so relieved to be giving him something
healthy, as compared to chemicals!
December 24, 2012 at 9:31pm
Have you tried giving your son Plexus
without the meds? We waited until there was
a break from school and (after talking to
his doctor, and talking with my kiddo about
It) gave Plexus one morning instead of his
meds. His behavior was much better, and he
and his brother were actually getting along,
instead of fighting. So again the next day:
Plexus and no meds. And It worked as good,
or most of the time better, than his meds
did. However, one morning he asked if he
could please try Plexus AND a 5mg Adderall,
since he really wanted to concentrate at his
basketball game. We tried It that day, but
will NEVER do that again! That day was
terrible! He was an emotional wreck, he was
crying at the drop of a hat, and picking
fights. I definitely had not expected those
results. But now that we know, we will never
do It again!
Anyway, you might try (on a weekend or
something) don't give him his pill in the
morning, but give him Plexus instead.

Deborah Stolar is my sister, she posted this
earlier: "OMG, ya'll!!! Just wanted to share
this with my close friends first!!! I put my
grandson Logan on Plexus Slim (per dr.
approval) yesterday for his ADHD, I'm
literally in tears now. He is doing his
homework with no erasing whatsoever, NONE!
and guess what, he is doing it alone and
getting every single answer right! We have
to fight with him to get him to do his
homework, one paper ususally takes an hour,
he's done 3 in 30 minutes . . . It really is
amazing" Theresa Pierce
