Title: The relative efficacy of evening primrose oil and low homoeopathic potency gamma linolenic acid in the management of attention deficit disorder (ADD) and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) in males age 5-13
Authors: Middleborough, Justin Brett 
Issue Date: 2004
Abstract: 
The aim of the study was to evaluate the relative efficacy ofhomoeopathically prepared Gamma Linolenic acid (GLA) in comparison to supplementation of GLA, in the form of Evening Primrose oil, in the treatment of ADD/ ADHD with regard to inattention, impulsivity and hyperactivity. It was hypothesised that both the homoeopathically prepared GLA and the Evening Primrose oil would result in a substantial improvement in boys diagnosed with ADD/ ADHD and thus lead to their recommendation as an alternative to Methylphenidate hydrochloride (Ritalin\xAE) in the treatment ofthese disorders.
