Avatar n tn I am ADHD and I've always known that caffeine and taurine don't have the regular "effect" on me. I do know that since being on Adderall I've been told to limit my caffeine consumption as it counteracts the effectiveness of Adderall.
Avatar n tn artificial flavors and colors, some preservatives, sugar, caffeine, and some fats. I know many ADHDers, and many of them have been on diets that cut out foods with those ingredients. The diets made no impact. However, we should all (ADHD or not) cut those ingredients down to a minimum in our diets, as it's beneficial for our health. In all honesty, I have found that caffeine and sugar can offer some level of self-medication for someone with ADHD - but I don't encourage it!
Avatar n tn The deep breaths were much more frequent, but the weird flare up lasted less than an hour. At that point I decided to stop all adderall and caffeine, because I figured they were stimulants and were further aggravating my lungs. After 2 days my breathing was normal, and after a week the breathing gasps had stopped. On a Saturday I went to a party and used a different kind of stimulant (no lectures please), and noticed the breathing came back for awhile.
Avatar n tn Yes, for a child with ADHD and/or anxiety, eliminating caffeine can be useful. The matter of refined sugar is controversial. Overall, it hasn't been demonstrated to be a primary factor in children with attentional problems, but on the short-term can certainly excite some children and diminish their capacity for self-control. And,the fact is that too many children ingest too much sugar.
Avatar m tn About a few years ago, I had a really bad reaction to caffeine--heart palpitations, rapid heartbeat, high blood pressure--over drinking a 20oz of Mountain Dew. I recently started taking Adderall for ADHD (was diagnosed since I was a child but could never swallow medication until early adulthood), and I thought it was really going to mess with my heart. Funny enough, I tolerate Adderall very well with a nominal increase in BP every so often.
8748261 tn?1400677893 I have one coke a day. And maybe one other caffeine free soda a day. But usually just coke. And then water and juice the rest of the day. I'm 23w and only gained 2lbs so my dr told me to keep doing what I'm doing hahaha.
Avatar n tn Seeing the connections with ICD codes and Procedure and Dx and Visit codes is much easier in the billings. I can just look it over quickly, "yep, all in order" and get it done. And if there are more steps it's totally fine, it goes along smoothly. I feel a little tired right now and a little brain foggy as I said.
Avatar f tn i have adhd and it's hard to diagnose because there is no laboratory tests, a psychiatrist or psychologist will conclude by only gathering onformation about the child from you and the teachers. i am now 23 years old and i have hurt myself in many ways without knowing that i was sufferin with adhd until i found out about my behaviour through a psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn Red Bull contains caffeine which improves focus and attention. However, prescription medications are generally far more effective than Red Bull for ADHD.
Avatar m tn Many adults with ADD/ADHD have lifelong love affairs with coffee or caffeinated sodas. Yet caffeine may exacerbate the effect of stimulant medications, creating anxiety and heart palpitations. You can’t determine what’s causing these side effects -- the stimulant or the caffeine -- unless you gradually wean yourself off caffeine before starting stimulants. (Try to do it a few days in advance, though, so that you don’t mistake a headache due to caffeine deprivation for a medication side effect.
Avatar f tn Too much can cause still birth or miscarriage. My doctor said to limit it to about a 12oz can a day. Don't forget caffeine is also in things like tea and chocolate. You could be consuming more than you think. If you're only having a cup in the morning and occasionally in the afternoon some soda then I would think you'll be just fine.
Avatar n tn I drank tea like it was water with my first son and he came out with ADHD and autism, my other son is fine. This tone around I'm steering clear of anything caffeinated. Not saying that was the cause, but my nurse at the on office said that caffeine restricts the blood vessels and can reduce blood flow to the baby. Not a risk in OK with. Good luck. She said one 8 oz cup of coffee or soda is OK. No more the 200 mg per day.
Avatar f tn My friend is in the nursing program and it said in an app she has for class that coffee caffeine is okay to have but limit the other caffeine like chocolate and pop to 30-50mg to avoid low birth weight. So you should be fine!
Avatar n tn For the first 3 months I could only drink Dr. Pepper water and tea and other sodas made me puke And I drank sodas with all my other pregnancies too...
Avatar f tn Not sure why you mentioned caffeine - that is an upper. And the melatonin is tricky. I would only use it as a last resort. Hope this helps.
