327385 tn?1378360731 my 9yr old daughter has some problems i think she has add/adhd. she was seen by an add/adhd spealist last year. the doctor tinks she has it but wanted her teacher to fill out the forms. her teacher was complaining alot about her behavior.she has trouble listening-finishing tasks-wanting to lay in floor-alot of talking. but when i asked her teacher to help with the forms she tells me she doesent have those problems?
Avatar n tn Two other ideas. One is that with her intelligence she gets bored fairly quickly and the words in her head is simply the way she is dealing with the boredom. And she may get so involved in daydreaming or finds the work so boring that she just isn't finishing it. If she is reading on the 5th grade level, there is no way that, "words bother her and call her stupid." But she may be missing out on the instructions? The other is, of course, the possibility of ADD.
Avatar n tn The symptoms you've written about certainly point towards ADD. I have it and I wasn't diagnosed until I was 17 years old (going into my senior year of high school). People used to think that kids with ADD somehow outgrow it or it just disappears, but I know that is not the case. What usually happens is that you learn to adapt in situations and deal with your limitations the best you can as you get older, but it's still always a struggle, unless you do something about it.
Avatar f tn On several of the adult ADD sites, I have noticed a very strong link to ADD and depression. Especially if the ADD was not caught till adulthood (this is very common in women). When you were a child, it was difficult to diagnosis ADD (especially if you were intelligent). If you were a hyper little boy, you got the attention. A little girl pulling B's and C's didn't get noticed. Personally, I think that is still going on a lot today.
4585238 tn?1356828942 My response here is more of a comment than a question..as a mum of special kids I can say that dosage is very important,too much,too little,definately pays to have ya checked to kidsĀ  to make sure the meds are at a right level.Worst thing about meds for this sorta thing is the trial stages,some do nothing,some make ya kids too lethargic and zombie like,and some make them more violent and anti social.Definately checked back often with your etc.
Avatar n tn I have a 4 year old step son who displays many of the implusivity parts of ADD and several of the symptoms of Aspergers, such as hand flapping and fixation or mild obessions with things in which he has knowledge of. Can ADD and Aspergers be combined? How many symptoms of Aspergers does a child need to be "defined" as Autistic?

127124 tn?1326735435 The 1st medication didn't work and caused her to lose weight, have severe headaches and she wasn't able to sleep. She is now on a new med, no side effects and she can finally complete tasks. The medication she is on is not long acting so you can definately tell when it is out of her system. I have a call into the Dr to see if he'll prescribe the long acting form. It is such a relief to see some improvement with no side effects.
Avatar f tn slight headache all day but heavy time of period. Kids started school today so off a bit, emothional this am after dropping them off.
Avatar f tn Hi. I was diagnosed with ADD when I was 8. I have always taken medication to help me focus in school and have always found that I lose my appitie and when the medication wears off at night I get my appitie back. Well now that I'm 15 I've became obsessed with my weight. Exercising like crazy tracking calories and carbs in everything I eat. I take in about 600-800 calories a day. Is that healthy for a 15 year old girl?
Avatar f tn I've had 3 kids and I didn't always get many symptoms. Stop trying to freak out, lol. I'm so guilty of this myself though. Are you just more tired, or bigger breasts? It can be tough. Just googled it, so here's a link to others with same concerns. HTH https://*****************/question/index;_ylt=A86.J7zyNdVUhzwAK0EnnIlQ?
429700 tn?1308007823 I was wondering--have any of you been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD)? I was quite surprised when my neuro diagnosed me with this last week. I think it's related to my MS, but not sure (dummy me didn't think to ask). He told me that Provigil actually helps with this problem and raised my dosage a bit. The cognitive stuff has improved greatly since taking Provigil, but if it would go away completely, I don't think I'd mind one bit!
Avatar f tn I have 16 year old twin boys who have just now recently been diagnosed with ADD by a Neurologist. He has prescribed Concerta which I can understand but he also prescribed Lamictal and from the information I can find this is for Bipolar or Epilepsy. Can anyone out there comment?
946268 tn?1246686539 my 4 year old son doesnt speak well,although understandable but he doesnt use words connections,he doesnt do his school tasks ar if he does he doesnt finish it,he's always opposing and usually doesnt trust anybody.
1858622 tn?1319813203 She says she does not like one church which is fairly large. I wonder if that is an issue with ADD kids?Or is it because she is 13?
676143 tn?1312941771 If I could add symptoms to the tracker, I would add "making more saliva" and "round ligament pain"...those seem to have made themselves present lately, too. Oh, and "gagging when brushing teeth"...
Avatar m tn I did some research and found that the symptoms of adult ADD matched my everyday life.(look them up and tell me YOU dont have some of them!) I thought I could use this to help me get my life back on track and went to my dr. It has been over 3 years now and I am still trying to get off of adderall. I have never been dependant or addicted to anything in my whole life. I am slowly cutting my dosage but I am a grow man and it is really hard for me.
Avatar f tn my boyfriend thinks our daughter has add but i dont think its just cause she is two but she has a attention span of two seconds wht do you think
Avatar f tn My boys are 18 months apart they are 18m and 3. It wasn't add hard as people think. I had a calm baby and a toddler that I raised tobe a great listener. The most important thing is getting tthem on the same sleep schedule. If you can do that life will be so much easier. Once baby was about a month old I could put toddler down for nap and then nurse baby to sleep and they'd take a good 2 hour nap at the same time.
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 f tn (1) If you have already thought your child might have ADD, you will undoubtedly find a doctor who will diagnose him with that ailment. It is a very popular and faddish diagnosis, which is not to say that a proportion of those being treated do not have problems. (2) If he is under seven or eight years of age, don't even consider it.
494594 tn?1212967928 I understand that there is a lot of media attention (excuse the pun) on ADD, ADHD, impulsivity, inattention. However, symptoms of inattention or restlessness are common in many learning and emotional problems such as learning disabilities, anxiety, moodiness, and motivational issues. So if I go to the car mechanic and ask him or her to check only my battery because of the screeching noise, I would be remiss in not also having the whole car looked at.
