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.

550611 tn?1214952010 Hi There, I was diagnosed adhd a few years ago. Last spring I was put on levothyroxine because my TSH test came back high. It is now just under the lab's standard so the Dr. will not look more closely at my thyroid. I am still so tired all of the time though, even when I am taking my adderall. Does anyone know if the adderall could be messing with my test results and making it appear as though I have better results?

Avatar f tn And where they giving drugs for the ADHD and ADD .Because I know there has to be many people out there that where treated for the wrong thing.And that when some one has Seizures it can look like they have ADD AND ADHD and even Bipolar. And the side effects to the drugs they use for ADD and ADHD along with Bipolar can cause Seizures ,since these drugs go straight to the brain and are like speed to young Children.
535822 tn?1443976780 Immaturity Mistaken for ADHD By Jon Barron on 09/11/2010 Could your child’s birthday be to blame for his ADHD diagnosis? Maybe, especially if he’s one of the youngest students in the class. In soon-to-be published research in the Journal of Health Economics, health economist Todd Elder, PhD, of Michigan State University, East Lansing, says as many as 1 million children in the U.S. may have been misdiagnosed with ADHD, simply because of their age and maturity level.
535822 tn?1443976780 Instead of Drugs and behavioral therapy for ADHD try changing diet .instead.It does not take a rocket scientist to .figure out that many symptoms.associated with ADHD attention deficit hyperactivity disorder,the often over diagnosed condition tacked onto young people , can be treated by simply altering or supplementing ones diet .
Avatar n tn There is an alternative to drugs for ADD & ADHD, it's called "food". Actually what children eat, effect their behavior. Thus if you eat chemically altered food, the body can't always digest it. Check out for a alternative to meds.
Avatar f tn Your an addict you can get clean but as in better so I can use drugs again that would be never. What pain meds are you on and what are you taking adhd meds are you on do you abuse them ?
Avatar f tn I don't really see any interaction problems. There is a slight chance of a Serotonin syndrome when moclobemide has been taken in combination with other serotonin enhancing drugs. But, that should not be a problem with the standard stim meds. Hopefully, the two working together will help you. Here is a pretty good link on depression and ADHD -
1202118 tn?1321882456 If the drugs don't work have you ever thou it was because he doesn't have ADHD. These drugs are like speed and street drugs and way to may children are given these drugs because they have a hard time learning or are hipper.what happen to kids being able to be kids these day's with out drug-en them. Dose your family know what these drugs do to people and the side affects of these drugs. was your brother ever checked for other things .Or did they just say he had ADHD.
Avatar f tn I would stop taken the ADHD drugs and try taken Vitamin B6 and Omega 3-6-9 Vitamins. They don't have the very bad side effects that these other drugs do.And make sure to get some Counseling to help with the ADHD. And do things that help burn off the energy. If you read anything I have posted you will see why I say this.
Avatar f tn Those are some heavy duty drugs. Im not expert but if the adhd drugs hype him up it may not be adhd. Adhd drugs if a child truly has it wont do that. There are some sensory disorders that can mimic adhd and bipolar and you may want to research that. But definitely see another dr, even if you have to see 2,3,4,or 5 to get to the bottom of things. I had to go through 4 drs before I found one that was right. Good luck to you.
Avatar m tn hey, um I cant say I do cos methamphetamine is an illicit drug, so it would be strange for it to of been prescribed.
1274559 tn?1284132218 I am wondering why you need to have medicine for ADHD? can you handle ADHD without medicine??? I mean is the Medicine necessary?
574118 tn?1305135284 Be aware that ADHD medication is also bad for BP patients if no mood stabilisation is present - it causes mania (ADHD drugs are stimulants - amphetamine class drugs in effect) so its vital to get a REAL diagnosis from a psychiatrist if a doctor says you are ADHD and BP - There are some real cases of them existing but there are I suspect a lot of not remotely ADHD Bipolars out there taking drugs they do not need or which may be dangerous.
Avatar f tn Compare the drugs Vynase to Intuniv- VS Adderal XR( I know that Adderal XR is a stimulant drug) Please advise as my son has been on Adderal XR since age 5 now 12, how long can a stimulant drug be used? Without Adderal XR his life is miserable for him ( I do not care about myself but what is best for the child) although he it better able to control impulse activity ,hyperactivity and aggressiveness but when medication wears off life get hard to manage.
Avatar f tn This has been widespread news for a long time is certainly true in my opinion, the drugs prescribed to children for and ADHD is another one ..
Avatar m tn I found out that my son was having Seizures after we out him on drugs for add,adhd and will not ever put him or tell any one to use those drugs again. The side effetcs to the drugs are seizures and some people who have add or adhd or even bipolar or all of them really have seizures. and not all seizures can be seen. take care and god bless ,let me know if you need to talk.
Avatar n tn Sometimes the ADHD drugs can actually make a child more anger ridden and more violent. I would talk to the doctor again about it ASAP and preferably a child psychiatrist. HOw is teh school handling this?
627145 tn?1230305626 s head and did a special scan to see whether he had ADHD and if so, what kind. Turns out he has a type where stimulant drugs will only make him worse. He also is having something like absense seizures. So the parents were right not to go with the usual ADHD drugs. This is encouraging to me because I've been on meds that happened to have a slightly stimulating effect, and it was disasterous. Therefore I never filled the Rx my psychiatrist gave me for Ritalin.
Avatar n tn Hi, My 13yr old son has mod-severe ADHD + OCD + Tourettes. In 2006 he showed a normal EKG. He has been taking Concerta ( 126 mg ), Abilify ( 6mg ), Prozac ( 40mg), Intuniv ( 4mg ), & clonidine at bedtime (.15mg). Since the last EKG he has tried diff SSRI's & SNRI's with some pos results. He is coming off the Abilify to try Haldol. His tics are very bad & last from 3pm after school until bedtime. We tried Risperdal yrs ago, but he wet the bed.
Avatar n tn My son has been on prescription drugs for ADHD for a while. I am very concerned about the long term side effects. Are there any real herbal medicines that help? I am really not interested in continuing to drug him, please help!
