Common Questions and Answers about Adderall reviews for children


Avatar n tn Hello, I have a 12 year old son that has been on 10mg Adderall lx for @ 8 weeks now. For the first six weeks or so his teachers we amazed at the difference it has made however, I just talked with his teacher and she said that the week before Thanksgiving and this last week that Logan has been blurting out more and not as focused. The thought of increasing his dosage scares me but at the same time I want him to have the success. I made a call into his doctor but would appreciate your input.
569026 tn?1216985893 Taken several SSRIs in the past for anxiety. Adderall XR for ADD, Wellbutrin too. I have been seeing a therapist for about 4 months and he had me go for a psychiatry evaluation a few days ago. The two concrred that I am "complex" and could be a combination of BiPolar 2, Adult ADD and even...Borderline Personality Disorder (god I hate that name). Anyhow, one of the main symptoms we all agreed upon was the mood swings.
Avatar f tn actually all of this has lead to the decline of these new generations of children. children do not have respect for anyone, can not control their own impulses and have nothing but selfish attitudes-and it is not the children's fault. it is our fault for letting society tell us how we should parent and that children are just small adults. they are not small adults...they do not know what is best for them...parents do (well, most parents do). that being said...

147426 tn?1317269232 prior to that my doctor put me on adderall for fatigue and that helps ok. I have to take weekly breaks because my body just wants to sleep. I have had concurrent since may, 6 trips to e.r. dx uti's and sinus and ear infection, as well as eye discharge and some pain. I haven't gotten to PTP because I have been so sick.
Avatar m tn No help with the sex drive, no help with art or writing or music, and I stopped taking it after a year. For two more years, the problems persisted. I dropped out of school, and ran away to a city where I didn't know anyone. --- 2. 21 years old. I came back to school, and was ready to start doing something with my life, feeling that I once again was not living up to my potential. I returned to school, hoping that maybe I had just needed some time off to mature or something.
Avatar n tn I am worried about taking them as I am a childminder and wonder if they will effect my ability to care for children. Also, will they effect my driving? And finally, I am a student with exams coming up...will they efect my concentration?

707647 tn?1251492147 If you want to sleep better, there are proven non-drug methods for improving sleep. The following is a list of the 10 most important behavioral (non-drug) techniques for improving your sleep: 1.The belief that everyone must get eight hours of sleep is a myth. People who live the longest sleep 7 hours per night, not eight, so don’t worry about getting 8 hours of sleep. Most people need between 6 and 8 hours of sleep to function effectively during the day. 2.
429155 tn?1205676864 Oxycontin.- While awaiting the scan results I was given oxycontin for pain relief, this seemed to do the trick for 2 weeks, 10mg 2x a day, then things hurt again so up the dose went 20mg 2x a day, then 40mg 2x a day, then 80mg 2x a day and up to 120mg 2x a day, recognise the scenereo anyone??..
Avatar n tn Welcome. Yes. SVR stands for sustained viral response, aka "The Cure". We're all working towards that end. RVR means Rapid Viral Response, which we all hope to achieve by week 4 on tox. EVR = Early Viral Response. PCR test determines your viral load (VL). Geno 2 is easiest to clear, so you got that going for you. What is your VL? Did you get a biopsy? Do you know Grade/Stage of liver damage?
Avatar f tn Her dr had to put her on adderall just so she could stay awake in the mornings for school. She gets terrible mood swings with lyme, and at times, lyme can make you feel like you are going insane (I had it, but the dr's never tested me for it; they kept saying it was depression and menopause!). I am desperate to find a cure for this scalp pain. No one should have to have these kind of symptoms for so long.
20003388 tn?1515169640 I strongly feel that had I not been put on SSRI's at such a young age I wouldn't be as messed up mentally as I am. I blame the lousy studies of the time, the FDA for allowing children to be placed on these meds (at the time) and the doctor's who placed me on these meds. I am angry that they did this with very little information and studies to back up their use. I feel regret for ever taking these medications. Unfortunately, I am now dependent on these medications to function.
298579 tn?1192250448 Occasionally I will also feel the cramping when I get sexually excited. It doesn't last for too long, a few minutes at most but I was curious if anyone else had experienced something like this. Thank you for your feedback.
Avatar n tn iv been on effexor xr iv gained 50 biggest concern for you is the withdrawl symptoms when stopping it.just 2or3 days without it is hell.moodswings ,headaces,vomiting,flu like feeling,hot flashes. please talk to your doc about that.they dont tell you when you start it.
Avatar n tn I was told by my doctor 20ml for depression and 60ml for OCD, but it will vary depending upon patient. It's best for you to talk to your doctor about this compulsion, so they can start you on the best treatment option for you, Its very unlikely your doctor will judge you, but if you don't get on with your doctor, I'd go see another one. A doctor that judges you shouldn't be a doctor at all.
Avatar f tn I eat about 500g of yogourt per day and drink 2-3 glasses of milk per day. Topamax alone won't make you lose the weight, it will just make it easier for you to do it on your own. I hope this helps you!! Have a great week!!
Avatar n tn I also have involuntary muscle twitches but I believe its from my adderall (i take for adhd) My father has been diagnosed with rheumatoid and 33. Had knee surgery at 26, now other knee is going. I crack constantly. Google degenerative autoimmune diseases...
Avatar n tn Some Optic Nerve abnormality, or due to the swaying feeling possibly some brain stem problem (which is the center for eye and ear nerves). Or Epilepsy. I went to many Doctors (6 or 7) and all of them had no idea. saying it could be some sort of migraine. No tear in the retina. Epilepsy hasnt ever come up. symptoms are always described as strange. Any thoughts would be much appreciated, or if anybody has similar symptoms.
Avatar n tn The forst one said maybe its a side effect from stopping the pill, and the second did bloodwork and urinalysis and all was normal. Tomorrow Im scheduled for an ultrasound of my lower abdomen to check for ovarian cysts. I am scared. ALso experiencing gassiness and bloated feelings. Please, has anyone had this? Do you think its going off the pill, and if so how long til I am back to normal again? Or does it sound more like cysts?
162948 tn?1205256292 Well my husband and i split up about 2 months after baby # 3 was born and i have been with a new man for nearly a yr now he has no children and adores mine I really want to be able to have a child with him and I am now wanting the iud out to make that happen Crazy to want baby # 4 probably but feel strongly about doing it. This week I had a cyst rupture on my ovary and discovered several on my other ovary which doing research has told me the mirena is probably to blame for this.
Avatar n tn Can anyone give me an idea of how long it usually takes for your metabolism to recalibrate after stopping Effexor and/or Lexapro? I've gained significant weight while on these drugs (despite an intense exercise program and careful diet). My nutritionist and MD told me that the drugs likely altered my metabolism, but no one can tell me how long it will take to correct that. Most frustrating, I've noticed that since I stopped taking both, my weight gain has accelerated.
Avatar m tn It sounds like a whole lot of misery for you. for the itchy skin, did you try QUELL lotion (over the counter item)--maybe scabies. Or cortizone cream? For the things crawling out your anus (maybe pinworms). ask your doctor for a prescription for Vermox or Mebendazole(by Rx only). In general, just google MORGELLONS SYNDROME or Morgellons disease and see if it fits you. I do not think you are imagining what you are feeling.
Avatar n tn Just wondering if anyone has a 'miracle cure'!! For a few years now, I've been getting a red blotchy chest/neck rash in circumstances where I - am drinking alcohol, anxious, nervous, excited, upset - really feeling just about any emotion. It's gotten to the point where I do not expose my chest/neck ever - and cover up whenever I can. I had read once that taking Niacinimide could help - and I've been taking about 1000mg of it for a few months, but am not seeing much improvement.
Avatar n tn Does anyone have experience with this medication for children who are not diabetic and have been given Metformin for weight loss? We are concerned about the possible side-effects of this medication.
Avatar n tn Hello! I feel so much empathy for you. My husband suffered from a wide array of symptoms (some similar to yours) for about 3 years before being diagnosed with Pheochromocytoma (you mentioned that blood and urine tests results were OK, but didn't say if that included a 24-hr urine test for cathecholamines and VMA's, usually used to screen for Pheo).
Avatar n tn I do have sinus problems and always have, but I have never really taken anything for it other than something over the counter during a cold. I have regular stuffiness and pretty much always have. I just have learned to deal with it. It would be nice to know were that smoke smell comes from. No one else smells it when I say I do. I have never smoked nor have I lived in a home were anyone smokes either.
363682 tn?1299492962 For around three or four years now, I have been suffering from headaches some two hours or more after the consumption of any amount of alcohol - although typically as few as two drinks upwards of any kind of alcohol. The headaches come on slowly but persistently and follow a line from the left side of my neck across the top of my head to just above the left eyebrow. They are not sharp pains but more of a constant 'throb' and can go on for hours.
