Avatar n tn I toke her to her doctor and talked with her, as we were talking she was also observing her and she came to the conclusion that she might have this ADD problem. Her father thinks that nothing is wrong. I need some advise. Please help?
Avatar n tn I've never had children so I am at a loss as to what to do. Should he be tested for ADD or do you think the problem is bigger than that?
1628088 tn?1299535690 My 13 year old nephew seems to have ADD according to his school. I have always noticed that something was going on with him because of his attitude and way of being. He gets distracted easily and if you tell him something it's like he's not even paying attention and he is doing really bad at school. I know that he will need to go with a health professional as soon as possible.
Avatar n tn Sounds normal to me, to be honest. She's only 6------ it is difficult to block out all things and completely focus when in a noisy (which they all kind of are at that age) classroom. Is she doing fine with her work?? Is school coming to you with complaints? If not, then I would not make this into a big deal. If you think about it, we all have a subconsious as well that 'speaks' to us. Totally normal but a hard thing for a young child to verbalize.
Avatar n tn Met with my PDOC last week, and he indicated we could switch meds, or try and add something. Since Im getting SOME success with the Lex, he decided to add 2mg of Abilify. I took it at night the first night (when I take my LEX) and I was up all night with my mind racing. The next day I felt like I was in a cloud / fog, figured it was lack of sleep. So now I take in the morning, but I am CONFUSED and SEDATED feeling.

Avatar n tn Seek a second opinion re: the diagnosis, and do so with a mental health professional. If, indeed, the diagnosis is primary ADHD, and there is no other emotional or mental health condition, treatment by the pediatrician or family physician can be fine. But, the diagnosis may be incorrect, or there may be ADHD alongside some additional condition. Now, having said that, there are many children who are tried on the various stimulant medications.
Avatar n tn They wouldn't help me at the county mental health either. They wouldn't even see me after I waited around all day for an appointment. They all tell you try this place or that place. None will actually help you. You'll end up tarring all your hair out with the frustration they put you through. At least, that's how it was for me in Los Angeles. I'm also over 25. If you are under 25, or have other psychological issues you may be able to get the proscription.
Avatar f tn i feel like i have add or adhd... but no one will listen... i feel like im going insane... how can i know? how can i feel better about school and learning?
Avatar n tn Go onto the autism forum and click on the Health Page icon on the top right hand corner of the page. I have posted the DSM IV diagnositic criteria for autism and parents have posted examples of their childs behaviour that fits the criteria. Have a look and see if any of that sounds relevant to her behaviour and post back. It maybe that you have two things going on.
757137 tn?1347200053 There was a news item today that claimed a connection between ADD and the use of organophosphates (a pesticide) on the food we eat. Apparently, in tests it was found that children with ADD tended to have very high levels (well above he norm) of this poison in their systems. I will see what more I can learn about this. Even when we are conscientious in caring for our children there are hidden dangers all around us.
Avatar n tn 1) Often fails to give close attention to details or makes careless mistakes in work, schoolwork, or other activities 2) Often has difficulty sustaining attention in tasks 3) Often does not seem to listen when spoken to directly 4) Often does not follow through on instructions and fails to finish schoolwork, chores, or duties in the workplace (not due to oppositional behavior or failure to understand) 5) Often has difficulty organizing tasks and activities 6) Often avoids, dislikes, or is
1453183 tn?1287852619 I appreciate you taking a look at the study, but the problem is that they haven't tested the long term effects on the mental health of children with ADD / ADHD. And the tests done so far were done on rats not children, so your comment "The depressive effects were seen when normal kids were exposed to stimulants" is incorrect. How do we know that giving a child with ADD / ADHD ritalin will not cause them to be depressed over time?
Avatar f tn Also because of my sons health problems we live with my Mom and she is where i was getting all my pills from , she always has them she also takes xanx and 7.5 vikes . I find myself wonting more like today i too 2 7.5 out of her bottle without her knowing. I know iam only hurting my self, my son my husband and my family. But i won't off i just don't know how.
Avatar n tn I consider myself to be more of a creative person than a person that enjoys memorizing infinite volumes of data(even though I am capable of this, I derive no pleasure from it). I have made extensive research concerning adult ADD and ADD in general and I do believe that in my first 6 or 7 years of school I did not exhibit any of the symptoms of ADD. I do believe, however, that these symptoms started manifesting a short time after this period of my life.
Avatar f tn It will help both your ADD and any weight problems you might have. Oh, by the way, my wife who is a health teacher wanted me to remind you that while tracking carbs, etc. is good. Its what the carbs are that is more important! Eating healthy is really important. Especially, in your situation. I hope this helps. Please free to ask for more info if you need it or if you have any other questions about ADD, etc. Let us know how things go. Good Luck!
2217782 tn?1394367572 In the end up it is the ADD which is proving very difficult to deal with, but his doctor was adamant that our health system do not treat or medicate ADD sufferers. Crazy, right? He was due to be seen in May by a therapist however they cancelled on him but are now accusing him of failing to attend an appointment in August 2012 which is impossible as he hadn't even been diagnosed back then. It's a very frustrating time and it seems the system is failing him.

1352665 tn?1276968755 I am a doctor answering questions on Men's Health. This is bit limited. I would rather be answering questions on General or Family medicine with specialist interest in Sexual Medicine if that's possible. Also it would be very useful if clients could attach a photograph of rash or lesion when appropriate. Also, is it permissible to include my website in my profile? Thank you.

Avatar n tn This can occur with mood disorders ( depression, bipolar disorder), ADD (attention deficit disorder) , drug abuse and several others. Personality disorders play a significant role in interpersonal relationships. It would be helpful to consider evaluation by a trained Mental Health Professional to rule out any psychiatric conditions. I wish you Good Luck. Sincerely HFHS-M.D.
5509005 tn?1369089912 I've thought about a powder that helps you burn more fat because I've also started walking in the mornings for 40-60 minutes. I'm trying to lose about 20-30 pounds but also for my own mental physical emotional health. Thank you for your time I look forward to hear any feedback. Anything I'm looking for to put in these smoothies need to be natural, I'm sensitive to a lot of things.
Avatar f tn Hello All, I have just started going to the Mental Health folks here at my Air Force Base for multiple issues (sleeping problems, anxiety in certain situations, difficulty concentrating for periods of time, ect...). My question is, I know that both ADD and GAD have pretty much the same symptoms, can I have both or can their be a miss diagnosis of either one.
Avatar f tn Now that your program is finished, get a good probiotic from the refrigerated section of your health food store to replenish what the antibiotics have killed off.
