WHAT IS WRONG WITH ME? I HAVE HAD A HEAD ACHE FOR 2 DAYS. I KNOW I AM SUPER DEHYDRATED, TIRED TOO. MY DIEST SUCKS, I EAT ONCE OR TWICE IF I AM LUCK A DAY. I NEED TO DRINK MORE WATER AND GET ON A PROPER DIET I KNOW HOW MUCH IT WILL HELP. MONEY IS TIGHT, WORK IS SLOW, (MY OWN FAULT) ADHD AGAIN.
Avatar f tn I have ADD\ADHD and I also have anxiety. I think taking ADD meds/stimulants only makes my anxiety worse.

1462810 tn?1327360449 ve read, my own symptoms, test results, and failed treatments, that both ADD/ADHD and fibromyalgia are just symptom cascades of adrenal exhaustion... And that treating the symptoms without addressing the changes required to treat the cause is criminal.
Avatar f tn After a period of time the xan no longer helped with my anxiety at all! And the fact of just knowing my anxiety was going to flare up at any point and my anti anxiety meds weren't gna help gave me even worse anxiety! He finally switch me to Valium five mg twice a day as needed and ambien for an as needed basis too and honestly I haven't felt this good and solid n years.
Avatar f tn You just need to keep it under control, which might be hard considering you have ADHD. If you feel like you may have anxiety and cannot keep it under control, it would be best to consult a therapist or maybe a doctor for some medication.
Avatar n tn Our 8 year old son has recently been diagnosed with Asperger and ADHD. Currently he is taking 10 mg of Adderall XRT (the dose was lowered from 15 mg). Ever since he is on this medication he is showing increased signs of anxiety regarding food safety and some OCD 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?
Avatar n tn Sounds more like anxiety - often the behaviours of anxiety mimic those of ADD/ADHD and it is not unusual for a child to be misdiagnosed. Try a search of the internet using "childhood anxiety disorders" or something similar to see if the descriptions are similar to that of your son. If son, then I would suggest finding a doctor such as a child neurologist or child psychiatrist/psychologist or someone with experience in anxiety issues.

Avatar f tn t know if you have ADHD and thats why you posted here or if you are wondering about it. You certainly have some of the symptoms. First, you mentioned anger. Check out this link for some anger management techniques - http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/5249.html Then you might want to go to the top of the page and check out their link on ADHD symptoms. If you feel like you have a lot of the symptoms.
Avatar m tn Do you think if i did the adhd meds it would help stop my anxiety attacks? I take 1# 1mg xanax at night to sleep and 3# vicodins a day for neck arthritis.Do you think i should ask for an anxiety meds for the day with the adhd meds or just the adhd meds? the xaxan also helps with my sore neck at night also......
Avatar f tn Your family doctor is not the best for helping you with this. You need to see a psychiatrist for a diagnosis, and they are most knowlegable when it comes to these types of medications. Then see what type of psychologist he recommends. You're not on a medication specifically for ADD/ADHD. Ziac is for high blood pressure and I doubt you have this at 20! Do you know why it was given to you? Imitrex is for migraines, do you get migraine headaches?
Avatar f tn My 10 year old son has ADHD inattentive type and anxiety. We are just starting to treat the anxiety now. He took celexa and I didn't see a difference in his anxiety. We weaned him off of it and took a 2 week hiatus from antidepressants and just gave him his focalin. We now switched him to concerta (lasts longer than focalin)...and added Prozac. Teacher really likes the results at school. However...evenings are hectic. He becomes very silly and immature.
Avatar m tn I think I am a adder,and got dysthemia,I know add/adhd and dysthemia just one year ago,but it make me relief. I read a lot about add/adhd and other mental diorder information on web,i think there are some comorbidity of adhd,dysthemia is one of them, Am I right? Is there any book mentioned the treatment of add comorbidity? P.S I am a chinese, sorry for my english, mybe it is not clear for you to understand.
Avatar n tn Often anxiety disorders appear as ADHD/ADD when, in fact, it is the extreme stress from anxiety which causes these behaviours. I'm wondering if that is the issue here - you're treating the wrong disorder. What would happen if the ODD were treated (anxiety disorders are usually treated with SSRI medications)? Would the ODD as well as the hyperactive behaviours decrease? Of course, this is only a supposition but one worth discussing with your family doctor.
342425 tn?1241379464 Ma'am, I'm not going to comment on anything but the ADD part. I wouldn't agree.At 4 years old, it's VERY hard to tell if a child has ADD or something else entirely, especially if the child also has the right brain hemisphere thing. A kid that age on sugar will be diagnosed with add/adhd 99.9% of the time. For an adult to be diagnosed, they should at least take that 700someodd question psych test.
Avatar n tn has always said that she thinks I have way more Anxiety then ADHD. I also have the inattentive form of ADHD and I am 32.... please post if you get any further feedback, as I am trying to figure this out as well!
Avatar n tn My son was diagnosed ADHD from age 10 and was put on Adderal, Ritalin, Concerta and then tried Straterra he was very irritable and had bad side effects, at age 16 he started self medicating with marijuana and can barely make it a day at school or a job without throwing up or having bowl issues, he is 17 and not sure if he is ADHD/BPolar but he suffers from panic attacks and can barely make it at school and self mediciates with marijuana....

3453160 tn?1398019442 i am reading a book by dr.lance levi about how adhd and obesity can be connected. has anyone heard of this?
5856747 tn?1403348682 For example, older teachers and grandparents who grew up to believe that the behaviour of ADHD children was simply wilful naughtiness that should be disciplined are now being asked to believe that it is a “disorder” that should be treatment. Symptoms and Diagnosis: ADHD is diagnosed on the bases of the child’s behaviour alone. This may be done using the International Classification of Diseases or ICD-10.
Avatar n tn s anxiety? Often anxiety can mimic the behaviours of ADD/ADHD and it is not unusual for a child with anxiety to be misdiagnosed with one or both of these issues. Our child was diagnosed with severe anxiety (and this diagnosis is correct) and then later, it was thought that she also suffered from ADD/ADHD (she was so hyper and active and unable to concentrate and learn or behave appropriately - this diagnosis was wrong).
Avatar f tn It is going into anxity attacks and panic attacks I also have bipolar, adhd and Ptsd. On CARBEMAZAPINE for bipolar and dextroamphtemine for adhd I need to stop the anxiety as fast as possible but don't want a lot of side affects and I do want the calm to par a while. Please advise me can't get ahold of psychiatrist til Monday.
Avatar f tn Very bad anxiety day today, but it feels different from the type I had when my prozac dose was too high. The main symptom of that was the impulse to scream or run into a wall, which I think came from over-stimulation. This feels a lot more like the fear I'd feel if I were being threatened. For the purposes of tracking, I'm going to call the other kind "agitation" and the type I experience today "anxiety.
1248235 tn?1268881737 Obviously I was hesitant because I did not believe I had ADHD and knew that if I did It would not cause me to have Panic/Anxiety Attacks... So it does all depend on your symtoms and how you are feeling. I personally knew I had Anxiety by putting all my strange symtoms together, you know yourself best. So do your reseach on Anxiety and you will know, trust me.
