Avatar n tn While some physicians diagnosis on the basis of a quick interview, and some use symptom checklists, the most responsible way to determine if a child has ADHD is to refer him for psychological or neuropsychological assessment. ADHD is frequently diagnosed by the presence of symptoms, yet it is important to note that symptoms such as impulsivity or forgetfulness can also be caused by anxiety, depression, or other factors.
Avatar f tn This forum has been a big help and I have not even started treatment yet; I will keep posting about my experiences. Shot #1 starts Mon. I'm having nurse at doc's office administer the first as needles scare me. Then I will move the shot to Sunday evening. I work out of home and can afford a couple days to be "under par", and then hopefully feel better toward end of week and weekend. Can someone advise "should the riba be taken at same time as peg-inter shot?
Avatar f tn Has anyone used it? And does it help? I'd rather go a more holistic way than medication. My thoughts are...my son is young (7 yrs) and still developing, if I could find an effective "natural" way it would be best. However, if meds are the only way to relieve his symptoms, than so be it.
Avatar f tn Try giving your son's Vitamin B6 and Omega 3-6-9 Vitamins . They have helped my son. The other thing I would do is take your son who has and is on Adderall to see a neurologist to make sure everything is OK with his brain .A lot of children who have been told they have add or adhd and even both add and adh are misdiagnosed because doctors ,teacher,parents don't think about having the children brains check for other things like Seizures.
Avatar n tn They recommend treatment for ADHD with medication. She is holistic and does not believe in medication. His parents had a nasty divorce when he was a toddler. Many bad issues involved. We did not get to see him for almost 2 1/2 years, he has been back with us for three years now. Not sure what I can do to help. Any recommendations....
Avatar f tn My doctors thought that my adrenal glands were failing me at one time. I went to see an Endocrinologist and had and ACTH Stim test. It came back normal. I went to see a holistic doctor and he performed an adrenal saliva test on me- one you offer samples throughout the day, so they can check your levels throughout the day (those are never covered by insurance). That test came back abnormal, I was diagnosed with Adrenal Fatigue and was prescribed medication through a compound pharmacy.
Avatar m tn Unfortunately, some of these children grow up to develop a personality disorder. Treatments A holistic approach is recommended for the treatment of tic disorders. A multidisciplinary team should work together with the affected child's parents and teachers to put together a comprehensive treatment plan. Treatment should include the following: Educating the patient and family about the course of the disorder in a reassuring manner.
Avatar f tn Honestly, the fact that he is so jealous of his sister to the point of trying to seriously hurt her (or drown her even!) is pretty serious. I don't want this to come out the wrong way, but with the sleep apnea and so forth it does sound like ADHD or some sort of imbalance is going on. I don't know if you know much about Holistic Doctors or anything, but my favorite one is also a pretty famous one in California by the name of Dr. Mercola.
Avatar f tn Have you ever had him tested for ADD/ADHD? I first discovered my son had ADD at age 5 but I tried medication and didn't like how he reacted to it so I've tried home remedies and holistic ways to control his outburst and behavior aspects and have found that between school and home corporation things have gotten better. A lot of times children can be misdiagnosed for ADD/ADHD and they just are exceptional kids who just need to be micromanaged to keep them focused.
Avatar f tn The symptoms you have mentioned are classic ADHD. If he has that the normal stuff doesn't work, but there is a lot of things that can work. I have been posting on the ADHD forum for the last 4 years and do have some suggestions. But, of course, gotta figure out whats going on. All of the family stuff you have mentioned is a contributing factor, but its (I don't think necessary) the cause. So what has the school said?
Avatar n tn Treatment generally involves treating the cause of the creation of the enviorment that allows Candida to thrive, such as treating the diabetes or discontinuing antibiotic therapy. For the immunocompromised, antifungal medications are given.
Avatar n tn From your test results, your positive CRP result is consistent with the inflammation from a suspected cytomegalovirus infection, as indicated in your CMV IgM test (recent , current or reactivated). Your symptoms point to cytomegalovirus complications, likely a mononucleosis type of infection, similar to the typical one caused by EBV.

I started a one a day administer myself and found I crashed horribly in the aftenoon. Our bodies are all different so you need to accomadate the meds to how your body preformed prior to your condition.
Avatar f tn I didn't get it then... just let the Drs diagnose and push the pills up and up. (ADHD, Panic DO, OCD...D,D,D,D..you name it...i got it) In 2014 when I got pregnant: Xanax XR 2mg am and bedtime Ativan 1 mg every 8 hours Ambien 10 mg Topamax 100mg am and pm (stopped for baby) Vyvanse 70mg am Adderall 30mg after work (online for Master's degree! 3.86 GPA) And the worst enemy- ABILIFY 10mg daily- zombie- dead eyes...no tears, no emotions... So...

Avatar m tn ADHD Is Not PC The DSM: 4 Mindless Benefits & 1 Mindful Benefit Find a Therapist Search for a mental health professional near you. Find Local: Acupuncturists Chiropractors Massage Therapists Dentists and more! DSM 5 has neither been able to self correct nor willing to heed the advice of outsiders. It has instead created a mostly closed shop- circling the wagons and deaf to the repeated and widespread warnings that it would lead to massive misdiagnosis.
Avatar n tn Dear Sir/Madam: I am 39 years old and three months ago I was diagnosed with ADHD, a disorder that has caused extreme problems for me since childhood and throughout my adult life, which began with my expulsion from kindergarten. I was prescribed a drug called Adderall (30 m.g. RX) after the 10 m.g. and 20 m.g. doses proved completely ineffective. I currently take 1 (one) 30 m.g.
Avatar f tn I am interested in any information on treatments or NYC physicans who believe in a holistic approach and who speciallize in treating EBV. Here is what I have been through: I was diagnosed 23 years ago. I was put through cardio tests because of chest pains and papatations, barium enemas, GI series, , IVP for kidney problems, dentists for sores inside my mouth, neurologists for my headaches, orthopedists for my joint pains etc. My throat, neck, hips and groin area were constantly in pain.
Avatar f tn , attempts and pscy wards to acknowledge I had Bipolar. I have had undiagnoised ADHD since childhood and one son has diagnosised ADHD. He does very well with no meds. He just can't take them. He's med sensitive like me. One son has mild depression in the winter and my other 2 kids have no mental issues. So no Bipolar with my kids.
16613731 tn?1449679804 ) I am an eighteen year old who was diagnosed with ADHD at seven or eight years old. When I was in the first grade the school said my aggressive behavior was becoming an issue and the doctor prescribed Concerta. The amount of milligrams I would take daily has been adjusted over the years, but I currently take thirty six milligrams daily. This is the only medication I use frequently (once a day). On another side of the fence. I have been an insomniac since my childhood.

Avatar f tn You have waaayyyy too much going on to just be food issues. You sound just like a case of late stage Lyme Disease. You could even have been reinfected with the tick whose head got left behind in your skin, which pretty much guarantees that any pathogens that tick was carrying got transferred to you. Getting infected again often makes someone with a chronic Lyme infection even sicker. Get additional infections, like Babesia, Bartonella, Anaplasma, etc.
Avatar n tn A part of me wonders why I didn't get treatment earlier for ADHD (college would have been much more productive) and a part of me wonders what I'll be like ten years from now when I am still wanting/needing the drug because I don't want to go back to being lazy, tired and lacking motivation. I don't like putting drugs int my body, but man, this stuff helps! Also, I have a close relationship with the nicest Dr.
Avatar m tn Keep in mind they are only two studies and while interesting on a number of levels, I don't think it prudent for anyone to use them to guide any treatment decision as the per cent of those with spontaneous clearance is simply too small to factor into the decision as I see it. That said, it may explain a number of things including the occasional person who claims they were "cured" by this or that without SOC.
Avatar m tn One for tachycardia, one muscle relaxer and one for acid reflux. Then the Benadryl. Everything else I try the holistic approach unless something flares up. I do take some pain meds just prior to physical therapy to help with after effects of that. Be blessed.
