Hello doctor,

My 2.5-year-old daughter is not speaking. She was very hyperactive, so we consulted a doctor six months back. The doctor advised to give her five ml of Mentat syrup once a day. I gave it for three months. I see some improvement as she is not too hyperactive now. I stopped it for a month, but I felt it was helping her. Can I continue to give her the syrup? How long can I give it to her? Will it help her focus and improve her speech? What other remedies can help her speak?

Kindly help.

Thank you.



Welcome to

I just read your query. You can continue giving 3 ml of the Mentat Syrup (Brahmi, Ashwagandha, and Madhukaparni) twice daily with water for one month. After that, you may require some time gap. Along with that, take some almonds and make a fine powder. Add some powder to her milk once or twice a day. It will also help her. Then, take her for speech therapy and follow up after a month.

Hope this helps.

Kindly revert for further queries.

Thank you.
