Common Questions and Answers about Adhd journal articles


Avatar n tn I got a lot of my literature seminar work done and I readily understood what I was reading in the journal articles. I decided to see if ADHD meds are ever used for bipolar and stumbled upon a website (revolution health) that has people rate various meds for their specific health problems. Turns out Adderall and Provigil are both pretty highly rated by people with bipolar II.
Avatar f tn I can understand your concerns. I don't know if this will help you feel better, but the guidelines for diagnosing a child with ADHD very clearly state that it must be present in two or more places. Regardless of what the mother may have said, he also must be showing the symptoms in someplace like school. It also sounds like he may be on a dose that is a bit too high. With kids, its kind of trial and error.
Avatar m tn Doctor: ADHD Does Not Exist Dr. Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.
Avatar f tn libido changes Methylphenidate (Concerta, Ritalin) is in the class of central nervous system stimulants, and it has major effects on our brain and nervous system. It helps to treat ADHD, or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, by helping the patients "focus" better. However, CNS stimulants can also increase blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature, in addition to effecting our mood, appetite, and sleep pattern.
Avatar n tn There are a number of journal articles that address this issue. You might begin with Kramer et al in the April, 2000, issue of the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Psychiatry. Relative to the vacation from the stimulant medication, I wouldn't draw entire conclusions on the basis of the first couple of days, but indications are strong that your daughter does require the medication.

Avatar n tn A short time later, I read an article in the Journal of Pediatrics and two articles in Pediatric Clinics of North America which provided me with additional information. these articles described children with a diverse group of chronic symptoms who improved following the elimination of milk, wheat and other common foods from their diets. After reading these articles I began using elimination/challenge diets on many of my patients. I was both amazed and gratified when they improved.

Avatar dr m tn In an interesting study that came out in the Journal of Pediatrics, researchers recruited 78 children who were about to undergo a tonsillectomy for various reasons including recurrent infections or sleep apnea and compared them against 22 other children undergoing other types of surgical procedures.
Avatar n tn At age three my son was diagnosed with severe ADHD. After a year of changing medications the Pediatrician referred us to a Child Psychiatrist. The initial thought was 50 mg of vavanse was too high for him but to continue the .1 mg of Clonidine. After 3 weeks of 30 mg of vavanse it seemed like my son was taking no medication. He was hyper active, unable to focus, aggressive, having melt downs, moody, extremely impulsive and not sleeping.
Avatar f tn I feel sorry for..and that is what all your little articles are about. Plus, ADHD looks like so many other mental problems that if someone is not properly diagnosed you will see the problems to which you were referring. That however, is something you should be condemning doctors for..not parents.
Avatar f tn I have a son that is 9 and he is taking Aderall and Risperdol. Diagnosis is PTSD and ADHD. He has been taking it for about 3 years. Has any one experienced any negative side affects from either of these prescription drugs or any positive or negative input on them to share?
Avatar n tn My 12 yr old granddaughter was diagnosed a couple of yrs ago with ADHD and bipolar disorder. Just this past wkend she ran away from home at midnight after a bipolar "episode". Thankfully she was found fairly quickly. She is also suicidal and talks/writes a lot about wanting to die,the only way she'll ever be happy is if she's dead,etc.
Avatar m tn i have never been thru wd from a benzo but there r some articles in my journal about them/also in the health pages..valerian root is a natural herb to take for anxiety..kava kava, some even take dilantin for anxiety..if the drug u were referring to is promethiazine/that is phenergan and it does have a side effect of drowsiness and in small doses/helps with anxiety...and it is a safe drug..not habit forming like benzos..
Avatar n tn He lives and breathes and socializes with his weight training and was looking forward to doing club rowing in college, he starts college soon. He has ADHD so physical activity is good for his mental focus. I'm concerned about the impact of not being able to be active on him mentally and physically. While I understand the need to limit the activity, I'd like to think that he could at least do some yoga or activities less stressful than rowing or weight training.
Avatar f tn I tried explaining to him that none of this is funny in any way, but he still behaves as if he's done something hilarious. He is showing definite, classic ADHD signs (I have a 20 year old who started meds for this condition in 3rd grade, and believe me, this child is just like him), but his teacher (I agree somewhat) thinks that it goes deeper. His parents and Grandmother, as well as myself, have all tried talking to him about why his behavior is unacceptable to absolutely no avail.
Avatar m tn com/journals/jama/fullarticle/194106 Soy is also very high in manganese, MUCH higher than breast milk, which may lead to neurological problems and ADHD . Soy infant formula is also high in aluminum, which can cause all sorts of problems.
Avatar n tn She's made it most of her life, especially when she's upset or overstimulated. At first they were thinking ADHD, but myself and her pediatrician both couldnt see it. She gets REALLY aggitated at school and social situations. She has a hard time fitting in, and responding correctly. If the teacher asks her a question sometimes she makes her 'noise' or barks... the teacher thinks shes being disrespectful but I know she's not. She's now having a hard time in gym because of her clumsiness.
Avatar n tn All of the data I can find so far (I'm in college and have access to a Journal Library) mostly discusses parent's of the autistic and the majority of the web comes up with the same. 2 universities in New York have found a random Gene mutation that is thought to be a contributor from the parents of the Autistic, supported by the fact that if one child has it, odds climb to 1 in 5 the next will, but what are the odds for the children if one parent is already autistic. Has anyone studied us yet?
Avatar n tn He was a late talker, but we were not worried, and by age 4 or five, he was all caught up, in two languages. Going back to his baby journal, I can now pick out his preoccupations, that are the hallmark of autism, such as spinning objects (while other kids enjoy watching TV, he enjoyed/still does watching the washer go around and around. But the diagnosis became official when his difficulties of social interactions could not be covered by ADHD alone any longer, which was by 5th grade.
Avatar m tn I also forgot to mention that, this past year, I also began to experience episodes of indigestion, dysphagia, and hematochezia. These symptoms lead to a referral by my family practice physician for a more invasive examination by a gastroenterologist, approximately two months ago. The gastroenterologist performed an endoscopy (Diagnosis: Grade III GERD) and a colonscopy (Diagnosis: Two stomach ulcers).
967168 tn?1477588089 Yes, without a doubt you need to be evaluated by an *IMPARTIAL* psychiatrist. Despite whatever effort a psychologist/psychiatrist/social worker that works for social security makes to be objective, it's impossible to know for sure that his opinion is not being biased by his position. You definitely need to get an objective opinion.
Avatar f tn // If your ADHD or your fatigue isn't acting up just now, you may even be able to read it from start to finish. (I didn't. My attention deficit got in the way and then I fell asleep.
Avatar n tn I suppose it's worth another try because someone very close to me just suggested that maybe I'm ADD (ADHD) because of my stress level, anger, and depression, etc., and if nothing else, I would love to prove them wrong!! Wow, even family doubts your concerns. To me, the problem is as plain as the nose on my face, and they can't see it. Or maybe it's me who cannot see the problem. Jesus. How do all of you cope???
535089 tn?1400677119 As the cross reactive list suggests at the back of this booklet, amphetamine false positives are the most common. Recent articles in the Journal of Clinical Chemistry ,Vol. 38 No.12 1992 and Vol. 39 No.3 1993 warn that medications containing chloropromazine, fluspirilene, and others may yield a positive when tested for amphetamines.

Avatar m tn I'm uncomfortable, so I drink until I get comfortable, and then I can't stop chasing the feeling. Ever. He asked if I had ever been tested for ADHD and gave me a test. I scored 6/6 for attention deficit and 3/6 for hyperactivity. He prescribed me 10 mg methylphenidate (rapid release) twice daily. On the spot. Never mentioned my history of alcohol abuse or dependence. No warnings. Nothing. The monograph basically says alcoholics and drug addicts should not take methylphenidate.
Avatar f tn The only information you can take as being absolute comes from peer reviewed journal articles, such as the New England Journal of Medicine, or Nature, etc (there are many). As I said, and as several physicians have taught me, opioids have not been shown to act on dopaminergic receptors. While there is speculation that opioid abuse does indirectly affect dopamine levels, these are only speculations. But ill explain what they think is going on.
Avatar n tn Hello! I think I might be able to help some or all of you. I will have to post this in several segments b/c it is so long. Here is my story: I had not felt good for about 8 years, although my symptoms started off as vague ones and I was able to ignore them for a long time. I would complain to my doctor and she ran all kinds of tests but everything looked just fine. At that time, I was in law school and so she figured I must be totally stressed out.
Avatar n tn He was born two weeks before his due date but without complications. However he started showing symptoms of ADHD at 18 months and a delay in his speech and language development (10 months at age 3), which I found out is quite common with boys with ADHD. Having been trained as an Occupational Therapist and believe that the startle reflex and the delayed language development seem to indicate a neurological immaturity of the brain.
