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 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 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 f tn The short answer: There is no difference. Officially, only ADHD exists. It comes in three varieties: 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 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 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 n tn it could be related to inattentive or hyperactive adhd

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.
Avatar m tn I am 44. Recently diagnosed with inattentive ADHD. I have all types of memory problems, focus/concentration problems. A have a phobia of any situation that might reveal a lack of ability to articulate. I have very poor reading comprehension and have to read and reread many times to process it or in other words there is little automaticity there when I read. I have tried 6 different medications none of which has helped. My only source of relief is avoidance and denial.

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.
20003388 tn?1515166040 I am prescribe the Rexulti for depression/anxiety in conjunction with Prozac and Cymbalta. The Vyvanse is being added to treat my severe ADHD, I am the mostly inattentive type. I just want to be able to think and focus clearly. If this combo will still allow that I would be happy, if not than I may need to talk to my doc. Thanks for any responses.
Avatar f tn I'm not privy to any scientific studies on the subject you have raised although I am sure they exist somewhere. So all I can offer here at this point is my own experience: 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.
Avatar n tn She said that my daughter has been flagged for ADHD. My daughter was 4 in mid-July, so it might be immaturity. However, she seems to be unable to sit still during group activities such as book readings and music lessons. She has intense concentration when she's interested in things, and can play for some time and follow a logical thought to broader and more interesting topics. Should I be taking her to a Child Psycholgist for an evaluation.
Avatar f tn Just started on 36 mg of Concerta (after 2 weeks on 18mg) after being diagnosed with ADHD primarily inattentive. I'm 36 and up until now I've managed to get by without meds.- as a teacher I always had the 'bell' and the students to make sure I was in the right place and prepared.
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 What does the neurotransmitter GABA have to do with EDS or narcolepsy or ADHD (inattentive type) or bipolar II?
Avatar f tn I have a 5 year old just diagnosed with ADHD, my 13 year old has all the signs of Inattentive ADHD and my 11 year old shows many, many signs as well. What are the chances three of four children could actally have it? Is that normal? I was diagnosed at 14 and on Ritilin for a year or so and then just stopped and am on no meds currently.
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 m tn My 12 year old son seems to have issues relating to people socially. He's bright and funny, but can't be in a room with other people without doing something annoying and won't stop. You can't have a conversation with him without him trying to poke you, speaking excessively loud about whatever he wants to say, or physically trying to bother you.
Avatar f tn my daughter was put on ritalian 2 times a day, at her old school she was getting suspended at least once a week but at this school the teachers seem to care more and she got an award for good behavior the first in i dont know how long,the doctor dosen't think she as adhd but thinks she as add i don't want her on medicines for the rest of her life can you suggest any thing else?
Avatar n tn She is having problems with her 9year old son. Until about a year and a half ago, he was a quiet, shy, polite boy. Now he goes through phases of ADHD-like behavior and she has linked it to milk intake. He is "normal" until about an hour after drinking milk or having milk in his cereal. She has eliminated milk for a week or more at a time and had NO PROBLEMS with him...but as soon as he has milk again he is hyper, rude, inattentive, etc. This subsides after a few hours.
Avatar n tn He also, has Gilberts Syndrome which is a liver disorder that should not produce any symptoms. He has symptoms of ADHD- inattentive type disorder. Lack of focus, attention, and problems with organized thought, especially in writing and problem-solving. Could there be an association with the arachnoid cyst that has been found and some of his other symptoms? How concerned should I be? I had travel plans with my son for a period of 5 months immediately after finding out about his cyst.
Avatar f tn Low dose Dexidrine I think works better on inattentive type ADD and SCT, where as Rittalin will drive them up the wall, overloading them causing mood swings mania etc. I have heard that Rittalin works best for ADHD. You will notice the effect within min of taking the meds if they are the right one for the individual. Better impulse control such as a decrease in motor mouthing for ADHD for example and they will calm down.
Avatar f tn I just feel Dumb and insecure because people look at me as lazy and stupied. I have been reading alot of adhd boards and feel I definatly have the Inattentive adhd. I wish I was hyeractive then I might possibly get something done. I really need some help and any advise on my issue would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn My 14 yr. old son has been diagnosed with Adhd-Inattentive and anxiety disorder. He misses school several days at the time because he says that there are days when he knows that he can't be good and follow the rules. When he does go to school he does well. He's on Lexapro in the evening and Invega in the mornings. He has always contended that just letting it all loose just feels good ( such a relief). I don't understand this. Could there be something else going on here?
