adhd

Avatar f tn (in children) In adults, this type of thing would show up as an Axis II personality disorder. In children, particularly 4 (very young for this kind of diagnosis, ADD/ADHD as well - and I would hold off on the meds until a second or third opinion is obtained..cheaper than treatment I'm sure...) ALSO - (I have personal experience in this - my 5 yr old girl had wild tantrums, and I was very worried,, and took her to different drs...

Avatar m tn My comments might be considered as more general, based on observation and an intense interest in the welfare of children. The family is in the medical community and its related professions. One member deals with children with academic problems and another with programs for gifted children.

Prescription stimulants may treat symptoms in the short-term, but in the long term they wreak havoc on the fragile dopamine system. Studies with rats at Harvard McClean University have shown that Ritalin use during juvenile years leads to depression in adulthood. This is similar to what happens to chronic users of illegal stimulants. My parents put me on Ritalin as a child. I cannot work because my depression is so disabling.
757137 tn?1347196453 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 Yes, these are all symptoms of type I diabetes in children. My child was wetting the bed, extremely thirsty all the time and was vomiting; his vomiting, we think, was contributed to a stomach virus he had at the time. We took him to the ER due to dehydration -they did a blood chemistry and his blood sugar was 399-they immediately admitted him to ICU and he was put on IV insulin. He's been a diabetic now for 3 years-he's now 9. He's has handled it amazingly well!
Avatar n tn My son has ADD/ADHD and he takes vyvanse but the doctor also prescribed guafacine which is normally used with people with high blood pressure but it has been found that it works bettt6with children with ADD/ADHD. I really have seen a change in his anxiety and levels the vyvanse chemistry out. You should speak to your doctor about it. They say vyvanse is better for children to take anyway.
Avatar n tn I went through alot of testing and he said the first few mins I had you in my room I could tell you had ADD.......everyone had different symptoms so Iwould go to your doctor if I were you......I was started on vyvanse and this has worked well for me by far!!! Good luck!
Avatar n tn Thanx. I would definately signs see has symptoms of ADD. I am getting her evaluated in 2 weeks. Some days she focus well. Some days not at all. She will read anything that is not nailed down. She is now starting to read the Ann of Green Gables series. My husband thinks it will encourage her daydreaming and overactive "imagination." What do you think?
Avatar n tn Have a look at the Health Page and then post back with what you think as to its relevance. If your daughter has the diagnosis of ADD she might also have an autistic spectrum disorder or Aspergers. If you suspect that then you have to go back and ask for further assessments.
Avatar m tn Will this make any difference? Also any information about schizophrenia in children would be helpful. I do not think it is severe in my son, but I am worried and am unsure of how to approach this.
1980489 tn?1326255851 The symptoms are the same in adults as in children - but keep in mind that not every adult has every symptom and neither does every child. I had it - and we all present pretty differently even though we are the same? Muscle fatigue means that exercise is pretty much a disaster - and the fatigue is overwhelming.
Avatar f tn My son always had terrible allergies (he had alot of ezcema) and we found out he was gluten intolerant. The Celiac Center in NY did a big study (in which he was included) of children who had ADHD and carried the Celiac genes. Though there rate of celiac was the same as the regular population - 75% of them were gluten intolerant and had antigliadins over a threshold of 20. We are talking the real clinical definition.
Avatar f tn I have a 13yr who has ADD and CAPD. He is falling way behind in school and now doesn't even want to go. His grades are awful and honestly I don't think he cares. He refuses medicine. Which his doctor said he is old enough to make that decision. I was considering homeschooling him, but not sure if he would even try. Anyone with any advice would help.
219373 tn?1274921434 just prior to having her testing in which she was diagnosed with these she was on adderall for suspected ADD and the adderall was very effective for her concentration and focus, making schoolwork and chores etc much less stressful and frustrating. after her testing i was told she definalty does not have ADD and the aspergers is making her loose focus and have trouble with concentration etc. she was taken off the adderall and has not been doing nearly as well.
Avatar m tn A growing body of work exists about the short- and long-term effects of stimulant treatment on cardiovascular parameters in children, adolescents, and adults with ADHD who are receiving stimulants. These data, limited to healthy subjects without known preexisting cardiac anomalies, consistently demonstrate small, statistically significant, but not clinically meaningful increases in blood pressure and pulse as well as minimal changes during electrocardiography.
Avatar f tn First of all, teachers should not be recommending medication. They are not physicians. To suggest your child see a physician to discuss options would be normal, but not recommending a medication with no medical education. How old is your child? The diagnosis for children with ADD/ADHD should be taken very seriously. There are a number of tests to be done. Your child isn't just diagnosed because he seems "over-active" to a teacher.
Avatar n tn To diagnose the underlying cause and origin of vertigo in children, an MRI or CT scan of the brain and skull are usually recommended. In addition, your child also undergo a complete physical and examination by a physician with special focus on a test known as the Dix-Hallpike maneuver which will help to narrow the complication into either nerve damage or brainstem involvement.
Avatar n tn I have suffered from ADD symptoms as a result of my drug and alcohol use a decade ago. I have been on many ADD and anti depressant meds but all to no avail except with Wellbutrin XR and somewhat with Concerta. The Wellbutrin worked amazingly well a long time ago but stopped shortly after I took a small sip of hard liquor. My doctors are perplexed by this but that is the only explanation I can come up with.
