Common Questions and Answers about Adhd inattentive type


Avatar m tn My son was diagnosed with adhd inattentive type by his psychologist and his doctor is running more tests to rule out nothing else is going on. There are so many meds out there any suggestion.
Avatar f tn After a series of tests on her part and questionnaires on our part, he diagnosed her with ADHD (inattentive type with no H factor) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. He recommended meds for ADHD and family therapy for the ODD. Our pediatrician does not take this diag lightly, so they are testing her again as like a 2nd opinion. We do that on Sept 16th. I am just so overwhelmed right now.

Avatar f tn My 11 y.o. daughter has ADHD (inattentive type) and suffers from extreme challenges controlling her emotions. She is easily frustrated, easily angered and slow to calm with limited ability to self-soothe. She has a difficult time transitioning, has explosive tantrums, cries over minor difficulties and is defiant. We are under the care of a psychiatrist and a psychologist. Currently, she is on 20 mg of Abilify and 50mg of Vyvanse.
Avatar n tn I wasn't diagnosed until recently, at the age of 45, but outwardly my symptoms look different as an adult than they did as a child (and yet nobody recognized it back then!). When I was young, I couldn't sit in a chair without jiggling my foot, for instance. My nerves were always on edge, and I wish I'd realized sooner how much good exercise could have helped. I exercise more and have a job now that has both brain work and physical labor.
Avatar f tn ADHD predominantly hyperactive, ADHD predominantly inattentive, and ADHD mixed type. In other words, you don't need to be hyperactive in order to be diagnosed as ADHD. The term ADD is merely a popular abbreviation frequently (mis)used to indicate that someone is inattentive and does not display symptoms of hyperactivity.
Avatar n tn My garandson is 10 and has been diagnosed ADhD, inattentive type. He has always avoided eye contact and hugs. Will usually walk right past us when we visit. He has never had a real friend and has issues at school with kids making fun of him. They call him weird or worst. There are very few foods he will eat. I don't think he has ever had a vegetable other than french fries. He does the blank gaze alot. He was been checked to make sure he wasn't having seizures. Negative on that.
Avatar f tn i thought i had adhd inattentive type not the hyperactivity type. I feel she isn't listening to me when i told her the inattentive type symtoms of which i have them all. She is just saying its anxiety. I also feel i have a slight comprehension problem. I can't understand simple things. But if i am told over many, many times until i understand i get it. She just thinks that i wasn't told how to do things. But its more then that. I am not going to her for therapy. she just did the evaluation.
1053987 tn?1279308110 There are 2 types of ADHD- hyperactive and inattentive. Bipolar II is commonly misdiagnosed as ADHD because many of the symptoms are the same like loss of concentration, memory, racing thoughts, etc. The key to distinguishing between the two is that, to warrant a diagnosis of ADHD, the symptoms must have been present in childhood. The ADHD-like symptoms of BPII begin at any time with the onset of the disorder.
Avatar f tn Predominantly Inattentive Type Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive Type Combined Type Sometimes a combination of therapy and medication is indicated. Of all the medications prescribed to treat ADHD, stimulants are often the most effective. Paradoxically, medications that are mild stimulants often deliver a calming effect to the central nervous system (brain and nerves) of those with ADHD. In some cases, antihypertensives or antidepressants may be prescribed.
Avatar n tn My problem when I heard ADD mentioned earlier in life was hyper type folks and I am the opposite. I’m a slug, couch potato type person. In my early adulthood, I started taking diet pills and loved the effect that it made me concentrate on tasks. I hated taking them and tried to not let it control my life. I would take only 1/2 a pill some days ... always aware that it was a controlling drug but I adored being focused on tasks.
Avatar f tn I went to the psyc to sort out my headaches and binge eating and guess what? Here I am ADHD inattentive (the lethargic daydreaming type without hyperactivity). I tried Ritalin but got a rash and chest pain so I am on Dex now and feeling grat so far. Good luck. I hope this gets sorted out for you.
Avatar n tn My 10 yo daughter was diagnosed w/ ADHD (inattentive type) and anxiety disorder last summer. 2 psychologists said her type of ADHD is very responsive to stimulant med. Her 5th gr. teacher says she daydreams but is a good student--very creative and bright--thinks she might be GATE. Teacher doesn't thinks meds are necessary now. We still have a couple of concerns though: her social behavior and negative attitude. She's never been well-liked at school--gets very few party or playdate invites.
Avatar n tn Since Strattera targets the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, your son may do well on Desipramine, a tricyclic antidepressant that used to be prescribed more frequently than it is these days to treat ADHD (primarily Inattentive type). Desipramine's effect occurs because it targets norepinephrine (the typical stimulant medications target the neurotransmitter dopamine). In your son's case, it appears that norepinephrine might well be the neurotransmitter to target.
Avatar n tn Yes, it could be that your son is displaying absence seizures, though your description leads more to the probability of ADHD (Inattentive type). Due to the family history, a referral to a pediatric neurologist would be very prudent. It's important to rule this in or out. And, it is possible your son displays both a seizure disorder and ADHD - they are not mutually exclusive by any means.
Avatar f tn What are the symptoms in an adult to look for ADD/ADHD? I think my husband may have this.
184674 tn?1360864093 I found this list on quite a few websites about the symptoms of ADHD. I've put asterisks by the symptoms he has regularly.
Avatar f tn Her testing showed moderate to severe inattentive type adhd. We've since taken her to her dr who has put her on adderrol almost one year ago and although I see amazing differences in her ability to stay on task her grades are still failing. She does not remember something she learned ten minutes earlier. When she first came to live with us she had severe issues with abandonment but now she's very secure and a very happy child.
Avatar f tn I feel very stongly that the only thing that is causing her behavior issues in school is her lack of a restful sleep due to enlarged adenoids, which is causing her to have ADHD type symptoms. i have a strong feeling that once this is taken care of that she will improve even further. If it is ADHD,then we will deal with it in a way that is best for her. i do not feel that it would be a good idea to put her on meds as we have a family history of medication sensitivities.
602796 tn?1219877065 Then we are running a gammot of tests to see what is going on. If she is ADHD-inattentive, we don't have to run to medication, we can learn coping skills that will help and simplify her life some. I think we would be doing children who could benefit from medication a huge disservice by not giving them medication if they need it to cope and live a more normal life.

Avatar n tn inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type and combined type. From your description your son may have inattentive type. Neuropsychiatric testing can be helpful to clarify different reasons for poor academic performance but a good history is the main diagnostic issue. Please discuss these results with your pschologist and physician for further clarification.
Avatar n tn It may be that you display Inattentive-type ADHD and that the condition has never been diagnosed. Please discontinue use of the Adderall. If you think you should be evaluated for ADHD, do so.
Avatar f tn What does the neurotransmitter GABA have to do with EDS or narcolepsy or ADHD (inattentive type) or bipolar II?
Avatar f tn I've had ADHD (predominantly inattentive type) since childhood, and BP2 since adolescence. Looking back from age 68 now, I would say that the ADHD has pretty well maintained the same level. Lately,however, additional symptoms are creeping in, and it is not easy to determine whether they are due to my advancing years or to an increase in attention deficit. I am referring to greater difficulty focusing on reading and listening.
Avatar n tn A type 1 has all the hallmark features of ADHD we discussed earlier, plus they're hyperactive and impulsive. They respond nicely to stimulant medication. * Type 2 we call Inattentive ADHD. They have all the hallmark features of ADHD but are never hyperactive. They also respond to stimulants. * Type 3 we call Overfocused ADHD. They have all the hallmark features of ADHD, plus they get stuck on things, hold grudges, are oppositional, and if things don't go their way, they get upset.
Avatar n tn My son is a very calm, well behaved 7 1/2 year old. He has been diagnosed with inattentive type ADHD. He is extremely bright. He can only were certain clothes because others "don't feel right". He constantly clears his throat. He has very poor motor skills, cannot ride a bike, catch a ball, tie a shoe, use a fork properly. He has melt downs where is screams for everyone to get away from him. He has a fear of loud noise. Could it be more than ADHD? Could it be aspergers?
Avatar f tn First, you probably don't have ADHD (that would have been caught early), but ADD or Predominantly Inattentive Type". You can read about that here - And, as I said in my earlier response, you do have many of the symptoms. and the only way that you will know for sure is to get a diagnosis. However, women tend to kind of get ignored by many doctors. You want to make sure that you see a doctor that deals with adult ADD/ADHD.
Avatar n tn (a) Inattentive-type Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder and/or (b) deficit in short-term or working memory. Sometimes it can be difficult to discern one from the other, but it would help your daughter if you sought evaluation. Neuropsychological testing can determine the presence of memory problems and can also help (but is not necessary) determine the presence of ADHD.
