Adhd inattentive type treatment

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd inattentive type treatment


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 n tn To try and draw parallels is not good science. Furthermore, her kids went through school a while ago and the whole ADHD treatment is much better than it was then. The fact she talks about teachers wanting to drug the kids just to keep them happy show a horrible bias to the whole idea of medication to help a child. If you want to really help your child - find a child psychologist who specializes in ADHD and get their advice.
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.
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 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 f tn What are some of the treatment options for adult ADD-inattentive? My doc put me on Wellbutrin XL 150 mg once a day but it's not really helping. I still get very distracted and can't focus on just one thing. Are there any adults that have experienced success with other medications? I already take Omega-3 fish oils, B-complex, etc. and exercise 30 min./day Thanks!

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 Dear Jumana, Some of what your son is displaying is typical of children who display Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (primarily Inattentive Type). But some of his behavior is not really typical of ADHD, and may be indicative of some developmental immaturity, Developmental Disorder, Mood Disorder, etc. The most helpful intervention would be to seek an evaluation by a mental health profesional. This person can help refine the diagnosis and develop a treatment plan.
Avatar f tn My 10 year old son has ADHD inattentive type and anxiety. We are just starting to treat the anxiety now. He took celexa and I didn't see a difference in his anxiety. We weaned him off of it and took a 2 week hiatus from antidepressants and just gave him his focalin. We now switched him to concerta (lasts longer than focalin)...and added Prozac. Teacher really likes the results at school. However...evenings are hectic. He becomes very silly and immature.
Avatar f tn To be frank, there is no solid evidence that natural remedies will successfully treat ADHD (the name of the condition, even when hyperactivity is not present - such a child displays Inattentive-type ADHD). It would be irresponsible of me to guide you toward treatments that are not supported by empirical evidence.
Avatar m tn And depression is inattentive or withdrawal from interests. Start prescribing the adhd meds for depression or inattentive attention disorder, and, mood stabilization meds for maniac disorders or hyperactivity and leave psychotherapy for environmental issues and coping skills for change. I truly believe in this remedy that wI'll have outstanding results better the lIves that suffer this poorly misunderstood disorder.
5973125 tn?1378579463 I am glad that your are concerned about your boyfriend, and I can certainly also understand him wanting to do well in his new job. Getting any job these days is tough - so kudos to him. The question is why can't he concentrate better? Is it due to distractions at work, lack of sleep at night, anxiety, improper diet (not a good breakfast for example)? Or is it due to something like ADHD or ADD?
1472248 tn?1292614695 My son - 9 y now- had since 3 y, a short fainting. Doctor diagnosis a Benine Rolandic Epilepsy. No meddecines, all is normal since that single incident.

Avatar m tn The doctors helping her have very set rules to follow to diagnose ADHD. This is a very long document but will answer some of your more technical questions. It is the European consensus statement on diagnosis and treatment of adult ADHD. While it is for adults, it also covers children.
Avatar n tn ***@**** Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is the diagnosis used to describe children who are inattentive, impulsive, and hyperactive. ADHD is a widespread condition that is of public health concern. In most children with ADHD the cause is unknown, but is thought to be biological and multifactorial.
Avatar n tn Tourette's Disorder, OCD and Inattentive-type ADHD. It would be prudent to seek an evaluation. You could start with a Pediatric Neurologist or with a Child Psychiatrist - either would be a reasonable plan. I don't think it's wise to try to address this by yourself, because one or more of these conditions (if indeed one or more is present) will require some pharmacological treatment.

Avatar n tn How do Aricept and Memantine compare? I’m said to have the ADHD inattentive type however much of my inattentiveness is in fact me getting stuck or blanking out, I think. My executive dysfunction is my main problem there. My main cognitive problems that have not been identified are to do with visualisation and long term memory. It did not occur to me how other people think, but I think very differently from most people including other ASD that I have talked to.
Avatar f tn which were aided immensely when, before going to treatment, I had been diagnosed with ADHD, for which I now take 60 mg of vyvanse every morning and 15mg of amphetamine salts every afternoon. To be completely honest, I do not think I would have been able to stay sober this long (today is 71 days!) if I had never started taking vyvanse, because I would never be able to keep my thoughts in order enough to resist temptations or drinking to relieve anxiety.
598237 tn?1225647072 Reagrding your comment, as far as i am aware diabetes, heart conditions are physical illness that tend to respond better to prescribed medication, so therefore this is the better for the patient. ADHD is a mental illness and i find CBT is the most effective form of treatment when working with this condition. It is obviously having a good effect on my child as he managed to get topmarks in german this week without the aid of medication.
Avatar f tn What did his 10 year old brother do to deserve that? He is diagnosed ADHD and has always been on medication for it, and is in special education classes with learning support. Until this last year, his grades have always been high Cs or better, now he's all low Ds and Fs. So basically, he's lying, has no remorse for his wrong doings, I punish him, he leaves the house anyway. WHAT DO I DO? I'm at my whits end, I've absolutely had it with him!
Avatar n tn // He is 14 - so in 8th grade? How has he been doing in school? Has the school been any help? For that matter, has the school tried to help your older son at all? He should be on a 504 plan with his ADHD.
Avatar n tn PDD nos, ADD inattentive type, depressive disorder, and disruptive disorder nos. He has been taking concerta, 72 mg, since August, and it seemed to help for a while, but seems to wear off quicker these days. We took him to his medication recheck appt. yesterday. He is becoming more aggressive, and throws things and hits and acts out.
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.
118225 tn?1278658540 We also discussed the possibility of Sensory Processing issues, but right now the success we're seeing on just adhd treatment more than enough. Sometimes, though, add/adhd can be the manifestation of sensory processing issues.
Avatar m tn Second, the symptoms you describe at school are consistent with a Hyperactive-Impulsive (not Inattentive) type ADHD. This is a neurological condition and may invite pharmacological treatment. Third, to manage the behavior at home, you and his father should read Lynn Clark's SOS Help for Children and follow the guidelines.
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 f tn I have also had irregular menstrual cycles, with severely heavy bleeding, and 3 early miscarriages. I have been diagnosed with ADHD (inattentive only) and depression. And have been on Adderall and an SSRI for several years. They help, but I have to be very careful. A little too much Adderall and not enough sleep, and I have severe side effects. And how much is too much varies from one day to the next. I often cut my adderall in half and go slow. Other times it simply will not work.
