Avatar f tn Yes, the little one could have ADHD. It certainly is an inherited disorder for many - but not all kids. But, i have had kids in the classroom who have ADHD and their brother or sister did not. So it certainly is not guaranteed. By the way, I have seen the changes in how ADHD is treated over the years. Having spent almost 40 years in the classroom. It is being treated much better now then it was.
Avatar m tn My parents recently adopted their niece. She has had behavior problems since before they got her. She has been diagnosed as bipolar and kleptomaniac. Recently her behaviors have been getting worse. She has tired to burn their home down, she tried to climb out of the second floor window to run away, she has been writing notes about how she ate certain family members and would like to hurt them. They can't take places because of her stealing. They have found knives and razors in her room.

Avatar n tn What are the side effects and risks of starting a child this young on medication for ADHD? The parents are wanting and pushing for the medication, so the accuracy of their report to the dr is questionable and the dr they choose is known to give out medication easily. I worry about the effects on this child and would like to try to educate the parents a bit more of the risks.

Avatar f tn Parenting with consistent discipline and support can help prevent over-diagnosis of ADHD in children. Sometimes, people think their child is ADHD when the child is still very young, under 5, and shows some symptoms. The problem with that is young children are still developing at very different rates and maturity levels vary greatly.
1151957 tn?1262035491 If you are truly having all the symptoms you say you are and your parents are truly refusing to seek medical care for you then is there someone you can call? Maybe a grandparent, aunt, family friend, or a friend's mom? Based on the symptoms I read on the other forum, if you are truly experiencing these, you need to seek immediate medical attention.
Avatar f tn Do you have an opinion regarding the use of Tenex/ guanfacine for ADHD treatment -- of hyperactivity and impulsivity?
Avatar f tn You may want to see if you can get a hold of a copy of the August 'Pediatrics' magazine ,there is an article regarding ADHD drugs given to children ,calls to poison centers are up 75% in the last 8 years and most come from affects of the drugs given for ADHD even the drug enforcement agency has issued a Warning.Read 'The Cociane of the Playground' and see for your self.
Avatar n tn when I met him a little over a year ago he got in trouble for something and my son and his fiancé tried for almost 2 hours to get him to stay in time out. my son had ADHD,.ODD, you name it. and we got him help when he was approx. 2 1/2 because things were just behind in his progression. I am not sure of my grandson's progression but I know that he was still wetting the bed not all too long ago at night. I learned from my mistakes with my son but they wont listen.
Avatar m tn And the reason I say these are questions for the parents is that parents raise their kids their own way. They give them liquid at home, I presume, so if they have a lactose intolerant child---- they have probably worked with their doctor and should be able to provide what they drink as a milk alternative. Mothers of kids with dietary restrictions are very on top of these things and provide the information.

Avatar f tn // and let me know what he is on and the dose of it. Has the dose ever been adjusted at all by his doc. In other words, did the doc start off low and slowly increase? Oh, and Mark has an excellent question ...what kind of a doctor are you seeing. finally on his soft voice. Is it all the time or only at home. Has it only been this way for this year or was it like this last year? How old is he, what grade is he in and when is his birthday?
1604185 tn?1297786400 t say specifically where your areas of concern are for your daughter in school. I will tell you that for a sensory kid (again, similar to adhd)------- doing much of what they call "heavy work" outside of school hours helps him maintain himself in school. Simple things around the house like animals walks such as crab walk, bear walk, snake, leap frog are good. Jumping on a mattress pulled on the floor. Take pillows off the couches and from around the house and make a big pile.
189897 tn?1441126518 The last 10 years have also seen an increase in the number of medications that have been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of ADHD, and the new guidelines reflect this. They also emphasize the chronic nature of the disorder "We had pushed for the idea that ADHD was a chronic illness in the initial guidelines, and that clinicians needed to use chronic illness principles in treating it, and this has been further emphasized," Dr. Wolraich said.
Avatar n tn s advice and what should I do about this I have a severe case of adhd mixed with anxiety and I am a grown adult that needs medication for my adhd for school and work and I get really frustrated that my parents don't let me control my own meds in general they know I don't abbuse it but every time I need my meds I have ask them and it makes my anxiety act up even more cuz I have to call them tell them I need my meds and it's annoying because they r not always their how can I get them t
973741 tn?1342342773 Yes, I the thoughts behind my original post were that some parents actually seek a diagnosis of add/adhd for their child for the financial benefit. This does happen, unfortunately. That is illegal as it should be. I would not say that a child that truly has this disorder is not disabled. There are things in place for families with a child that struggles (as I call it--------- as the mother of a child with a developmental delay).
