We have actually, and it seems to be working wonders. We give him some black tea in the morning before school. His focus isn't as intense as when he was on Ritalin, but his mood is much better; he doesn't go through an angry period at the end of the day when he's coming down. Plus he has an appetite again. He's pretty much his normal, happy really active self. On that note, we give him Red Bull, Red Fanta, and chocolate covered espresso beans before going to stay with my MIL.

I want creation to penetrate you with so much admiration that wherever you go, the least plant may bring you clear remembrance of the Creator.  A single plant, a blade of grass, or one speck of dust is sufficient to occupy all your intelligence in beholding the art with which it has been made  - Saint Basil

Heaven is under our feet, as well as over our heads. - Thoreau, Walden
