Ritalin and ocd

Common Questions and Answers about Ritalin and ocd

ritalin

Doctors have put her on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span>, Paxil, Prozac, Zoloft, and Welbutrin. We saw no change with any of these meds. We've seen phychiatrists, phychologists, and social workers. There are some other behaviors that have led the docs to lean towards ocd but I have written quite a bit already. Any advice I can get will be welcome. Thanks for listening.
Had vastly improved memory, increased speed and fluency of speech and very sensitive and clearer peripheral vision. Absolutely no problems with obsessive thoughts. Hope that helps. Would like to know your experience with nootropics if you do decide to take them.
You have had questions from people unable to use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span> and wishing for a nutritional approach of some sort. Please let people know that the Feingold diet has been used for 25 years as a treatment for ADHD and other behavioral disorders, as well as helping many of the physical symptoms that frequently accompany ADHD such as asthma, bed wetting, chronic ear infections, migraines, etc.
Meds work but unless you work with your doctors you wont get there - If you are taking meds that make you exhausted, numb or tired or have other side effects you need to speak to your doctor and work with them - trusting a doctor to know the right meds is a crapshoot and if its a family doctor then youre taking a risk - ive seen too many GP's diagnosing everything from schizophrenia and BP as ADHD and giving <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span> to patients and ive seen (and this is my local GP here) one who has over 75% o
I am on wonderful medication that is really helping me. I am on 50mg <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span> and 75mg Effexor. However any new drug I get given knocks me and when I sometimes take my last dose of ritalin my eyes start vibrating,all my muscles go tight and my eyes vibrate. This seems so unfair. Does this mean my body will eventually reject all meds. Please tell me this is not so. I am so happy on my medication.
Now I could not have all my information correct but the frontal lobe is the center for higher thought processes, such as abstract reasoning, or, in your case, problem solving and information absorption. As far as having <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span>, that's like having a broken record in your brain so it can affect other processes detrimentally. Again, in this case it would be your focus and information rates that are suffering.
I am now taking adderall only--it helps the ADHD but not perfectly and not fully. I'm still struggling with the anxiety and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span>. It also feels like adderall is a "force-fix" for the focusing but this is probably due to its characteristic of being a stimulant.
After a while, you learn that you can wean off the stimulants as they guide your life in the right direction. I would recommend <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span>, and then Adderall if <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span> does not work, as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span> seems to be a little less intrusive in terms of side-effects and such.
I'd look into natural supplements, in agreement with your doctor. Deficiencies of vitamins and minerals can cause ADD and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> symptoms. Based on personal internet research, I'd say focus on: Magnesium, Calcium, B Vitamin Complex, and the Omegas. As well as a high nutrient, high dose, multi-mineral & multi-vitamin, supplement. Something online with many good testimonial reviews.
short-term, time-released, generic and brand <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span>, adderall, concerta, dexadrine, zyprexa, depakote, zoloft. I feel like we up against a wall and no ones knows what to do. His current pychiatrist says she doesn't know what else to try so I should go somewhere else. The three remaining pychiatrists in our city aren't accepting new patients. My question, do you know of a drug that could possibly help this child with his hostile, beligerent, abherrant, raging, out-of-control behavior?
My five year old son was diagnosed with ADHD, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span>, ODD and Anxiety last year after he was BAKER ACTED for saying he wanted to kill himself. They started and currently have him taking Zoloft 25mg and Metadate 10mg, they are not working. When he takes the two together whether at the same time or at separate hours he is worse off then when we started. It seems like they counter act each other.

My 7 year old was diagnosed with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> a few months ago and is on Prozac. He doesn't do any counting or hand washing, nor do things have to be in any particular order, he just has bad thought ocd. He has to confess everything to me even it happened a year ago. And he will say to me "I just thought you are a pin head, but I don't think that anymore". He can't keep any of his thoughts to himself. He is now on Prozac and I'm wondering if it is making him hyper.
Which brings me to my question, his teacher (who has a grown son with ADHD and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> and 20 years experience working with pre-schoolers) disagrees with his diagnosis. She is concerned that he has a mild form of autism, which is why he is having a negative response to the Concerta and is so socially awkward. I have told his doctor what Aidan's teacher thinks and he disagrees.
I'm at work and the hours seem to pass me by like nothing and I look but have barely anything done in a 4 hour period, but it seems like only minutes have passed. I often have to regroup and figure out where I left off last. The people that I train to do what I do often work twice as fast as me with half the knowledge and a quarter of the effort. This is completely frustrating and I feel so stupid. I get angry with myself and it affects my self esteem. I sometimes feel worthless.
So my son has been diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> and bipolar tendencies and I am just curious what this means for him in the future. He is only 4 years old and I guess I am needing to know what to expect, will he have a normal life or will he never be normal. I have three other children and another on the way and was shocked to find out my son has such big problems.
Again the two are quite different in signs and behavior and one doesn't bring the other, yet some pdocs argue that ocd is one of the gateways to PB1, along with panic disorder and ADHA. My point is that both <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> and BP are not face and tail of the same coin. BP the old name manic-depressive in which one has to witness both episodes. ocd is intrusive thoughts, compulsive behavior, undecidability regarding things, etc..
I don't know, but I notice I have ocd tendencies with myself. With PDD and "atypical" autism I'm sure there's going to be crossovers with other disability characteristics... I think when things deal with the brain, things are not black/white- this or that... If you think about it and the snowflake expression, the same applies to the human brain. Every brain is unique and there's a considerable range of how each part functions.
My son takes zyoloft for his anxiety and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> and I recently raised his dose to 50mg and it seem to make him more impulsive and hyper, can this be a side effect of zoloft? Also, I am worried about keeping him on this drug for a long time.
Ever since he is on this medication he is showing increased signs of anxiety regarding food safety and some <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span> traits (increased hand washing). His anxieties about his food possibly being poisoned are really affecting our home life and cause him true anguish. Is it possible that the medication is causing this dramatic increase in anxiety? What other meds could be used to help the ADHD aspect? We already tried Concerta which made him more aggressive?
My question for you is have you seen any other child with all these symtoms and is there any other Meds that you have tried or heard of that we might try, as you can see my son has is very complex and his Pychiatrist is doing a great job,but I'm on a quest to find the best for my son and I hope you will join me God knows we need all the help we can get. If more info is needed I will Fax it to you. Thanks and please Join me in my Quest!!!
My son was diagnosed with Klinefelters Syndrome,in addition ADHD, Tourette's, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span>, ODD(oppsitional dafiant disorder)were born from this syndrome.Here is a list of Meds we are using or have tried with limited success. ritalin 20mgSR,Depakote SPR 125mg,Luvox 100mg,Orap 2mg,Benztropine Mesylate 1 mg,these are the meds he's on now. We have also used Tenex with good results for the Tourette's and Clonadine which was not so good.
I woke completely in the am and got tired at night. And I felt calm. Now with taking two half tabs I feel nothing. I cannot decide if this is a good thing or not. 2008 was the year from hell. Now I have a family member seriously ill and coping with that which is difficult. I am even calm with the nurses while on an ordinary day I would like to ***** slap them. Is this what happens with Dexedrine? I wondered if I am having a reaction like kids put on ritalin.
Good morning, I have a question, may seem a little far fetched but didn't know if anyone else has tried this. I am a nurse for a mental health facility. I deal with alot of <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ocd</span>, ADHD, and Bipolar patients. I have personally seen how ADHD medications such as ritalin, Adderall, Concerta, etc...has positively affected the lives of children and adults alike.
Vyvanse and Tenex for the ADHD and Risperdal and Lamictal for Bipolar. He also takes Melentonin to help him sleep. This combination of drugs to help him has been wonderful. They all seem to compliment each other.
In all things do not accept the diagnosis without proper testing and avoid <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span> which is bad for Bipolars in so many ways for one thing its a stimulant and for another its a dangerous drug in its own right with addictive qualities and some nasty side effects. Normally Wellbutrin is used for BP's with ADHD as its not a stimulant - if you are on ritalin its no wonder you are up and down on a daily basis - thats not normal BTW and you should be speaking to your doctors about it.
I listen to free tapes that I download on the internet on stress, relaxation, etc they are meditation tapes and that is the ONLY way I can sleep since I have ADHD and take <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span>..Sleeping pills dont work and I drink Alcohol so not a good mix..Will write more, have to get to bed it's 1am so HANG in there and keep the FAITH and PRAY GOD does listen..
She will be able to talk easier about thinhs she experienced that day, cause she can orientate everything much clearer now. Although that is my experience with <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>ritalin</span>, and I think Ashley will improve over time. I'm sure you will see many improvements when she has been using it for a longer time. Kindly Regards, Bram.
