Adhd causes

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd causes


Avatar f tn Reread the article a little bit more carefully. It does not say that sleep apnea causes ADHD or ADD. It says that kids get diagnosed mistakenly with ADHD due to sleep apnea. All of us function better with a good nights sleep! So, yes, I would expect to see that you would see some beneficial results. Let us know what happens. Good luck!!

Avatar f tn I wonder if this is because I am going home soon, and don’t think I will be able to meet my expectations for myself at home. I think my adhd is a main cause of my depression – the knowledge that I don’t have the ability to accomplish the things I think I should be able to accomplish weighs on me every single day. I’ve also been having a very hard time concentrating in the latter part of the day lately- it usually starts mid to late afternoon.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.
Avatar f tn Jag har med stor chans ADHD. Ingen diagnos satt, men psykologen sa det. Var på NPF.mottagningen och fick resultaten på testerna. Gick bra och gick därifrån glad. Manga har tjurat idag och sårade mig lite, men annars okej. Spydde på kvällen.

5856747 tn?1403348682 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.

4194487 tn?1370046144 I do know that it is believed that ADHD is inherited (plus some environmental causes). I am not really sure how the gene trail works. But, I would suspect that the possibility is there. Fortunately, there is a lot more information about ADHD then when your family went through it. So I would do all that you can to become an expert on it for yourself, your peace of mind, and perhaps to even make your babies life a better one. If you need resources, I've got tons. Best wishes.
521840 tn?1348840771 This is a significant number of people, particularly when you consider that ADHD runs in families. This rate would mean that ADHD among the most common mental health disorders in adults. The research suggests that more adults have ADHD than have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and many other well known mental health problems (though depression remains more common). As Dr. Larry Silver so eloquently described it, ADHD is not just a learning disability; it is a ‘life disability.

3453160 tn?1398019442 As to the link with ADHD. Many with ADHD are very lean because they are so active. However, due to jobs or job focus, meds, spontaneity, anxiety, depression, etc. I can certainly see how weight management could be a problem.
Avatar f tn I have been diagnosed with severe anxiety problems which led them to believe that i have adhd which causes those symptoms. I am 32, at 21 was put on low dose of klonipin for attacks I tried to get off and started drinking. Then they started me on a host of adhd meds which i gave up as finding the right one was hard. at 32 i still take a low dose of klonipin and my therapist put me on vyanese which did nothing and now put me on mythelin or ritalin 10mg 2 day.
Avatar f tn Thank you sasa28!!!! Its crap I limit my intake, but have taken tylenol and my kids are fine!
Avatar n tn Flat out, hormones don't cause ADHD. Your son is very intelligent. His natural intelligence allowed him to get through elementary and middle school. If you have very good intelligence, ADHD usually begins to catch up with you with subjects like Algebra, geometry, and algebra II, which are very dependent on learning each step on the way. You didn't say if your son made it through college or not. Typically, it gets harder in college.
Avatar f tn If you go to a physician such as a psychiatrist or you regular doctor, they may very well be willing to write you a prescription if your ADHD causes to have problem in your daily functions. They will give the proper dose to minimize the unwanted side-effects though and monitor your progress. Good luck.
Avatar n tn I have been on Lexapro (20mg) for a while to treat anxiety. I was also dignosed, and firmly believe , that I suffer from ADHD. I am a healthy male in my 50's. I tried Ritalin, but it made me jittery and didn't seem to help. I then was prescribed a couple of other antidepressants that are also used to treat ADHD, neither of which helped, and in fact made the anxiety qworse. I am now on Buspirone (15mg) but it doesn't help either.
Avatar f tn It might be that my friend hurt her legs and I spent the weekend picking her up and it was really hard on my back, wondering if that might have pinched the nerve. Also there is a spot between my big two and my middle toe that hurts like its been pinched. whenever I press it it hurts.
Avatar f tn I do not believe in taking anything while pregnant even if the doctor says its safe. I am almost 28 weeks and I cracked my tooth months ago by eating a chip, lately its getting to the point where I'm in sooo much pain its shooting pain from my tooth into my temple. it was on the news that Tylenol causes ADHD when taken while pregnant.
Avatar f tn // See this link on the difference between cognitive and feeling anxiety after you have seen the above mentioned link - You can try showing this info to your doc (what kind is he anyway?), but I am not sure he will listen. Basically he is not treating the cause of your problem, but simply masking the symptoms.
Avatar m tn Usually, trying to cope with the school situation, is one of the major causes. Consequently, if the ADHD is not effectively dealt with - the depression and anxiety tends to get worse with age. I say this because it is not how your younger child has done the last two days, but how he is doing in school. And, yes, if a good diet is making the difference then go with that. But, every study I have seen, suggests that diet alone (while helpful) will not be a cure.
Avatar f tn Right now no one knows what causes ADHD, but there is a strong correlation with ADHD and the fathers gene. Look at the fathers side of the family and it will give you an idea.
5757880 tn?1395578022 But the evidence for such individual aggravating circumstances is not strong enough to conclude that they are primary causes of ADHD. A related problem that has some accumulating evidence is sensitivity to food or additives such as colorings and preservatives. Several controlled double-blind studies suggest that these might be important for a minority of children with ADHD, and a couple of controlled studies suggest a small effect on all children whether or not they have ADHD.
Avatar f tn Both kids have been diagnosed with ADHD though. Has anyone else ever linked Keppra to ADHD?? My new neuro doc is talking about raising my dosage of keppra, and taking me off of my other medication that I am on, because it was helping with my headaches. I know that one causes birth defects. I dont want to be on that one while pregnant. I know keppra is safe during PG, but Im just trying to figure out if there is a link between the ADHD and Keppra.
Avatar m tn If you do not have ADHD, then this causes emotional and cognitive effects such as euphoria, change in libido, increased arousal, and improved cognitive control. Similarly, it induces physical effects such as decreased reaction time, fatigue resistance, and increased muscle strength. In short, a stimulant. Hope this helps.
