Common Questions and Answers about Adhd journals


Avatar n tn My 12 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD, and my 15 year old son is possibly too. He has classic traits of ADHD but has never been told he has it.If you need any more information let me know. Thnaks in advance.
Avatar f tn have a hyperactive 5 and a half yr. old boy. Hyper since birth.Changing diapers was difficult. I am used to this and it has gotten a bit easier to manage since then. Alot of his behavior seems like ADHD,the type that is hyper but "takes everything in". He never liked loud music,covers his ears. And also complained once of lights being too bright at Gymnastics class (which he DID NOT LIKE). He will interact with other children and isn't shy once he gets comfortable.
1116472 tn?1260078652 Almost always a person without ADHD will get high on adderall, while a person with ADHD will actually slow down and be able to concentrate. Your remarks seem like this may be how you reacted. Particularly since a person first going on speed tends to get a pretty good rush. However if they are on something else to calm them down or are physically huge, etc., they may not feel the effects as much - so this isn't 100% accurate. What you probably need to do is some more research into ADHD.
Avatar n tn Please let people know that the Feingold diet has been used for 25 years as a treatment for ADHD and other behavioral disorders, as well as helping many of the physical symptoms that frequently accompany ADHD such as asthma, bed wetting, chronic ear infections, migraines, etc. There remains a pervasive myth that the diet has been "debunked" and that it does not work, or that it is "unproven" or has "no scientific support." I repeat -- this is a MYTH.
Avatar m tn I poured through the internet and my school library on books, posts, and medical journals about adhd. I'm no med student (never even took biology in high school) so much of it was another language to me, but there seemed to be as much information in favour of the existence of adhd, its treatment and medication, as there was against it. I was very surprised to that adhd medication is an amphetamine; isn’t that like methamphetamines, a highly addictive and destructive drug?
329950 tn?1194801117 I am not a doc but I feel like the bipolar medscould really help alot ofg the adhd symptomes. when I am manic I eschibit alot of adhd. also have you had your thryoid checked recently? bi polars have a high rate of thryoid disease and a malfunctioning thryoid will give you all the things you are experiencing.In themeantime exercise like a brisk 30 min walk, eat right and get regular rest. alos keep a journal and write down all your rage and anger in it when you feel it coming on.
Avatar f tn Is there anyone out there that has a child that has PDD-NOS/ADHD/Mood Disorder-NOS/mild CP/Communications Disorder? Also taking meds to help with some of the aggression? Would be nice to not feel alone. Our son has spent almost half of his 6 year old life in and out of psychiatric hospitals to be monitored. Don't think they know anymore than we do. Nothing has changed. He takes Depakote for seizure/strattera for adhd and clonidine to help him sleep.
Avatar f tn There are no actual studies published in medical journals linking Tylenol to adhd (or autism which is the latest rumor). Gotta be careful with google. Anyone with a computer can put whatever they want on the Internet and say it's legit!
Avatar f tn I read an article tylenol contributes to babies who developed ADD /ADHD later on as children. Not sure how accurate this is. However, only started yesterday taking it for a severe migraine and currently in second trimester. Doesn't really help with pain at all. Also worried that it will cause side effects in baby later.
Avatar m tn Hi all, I am a 3rd year medical student and I recently read an article on lancet neurology about fluoride exposure- neurotoxic effects and how it can reduce cognitive performance and cause ADD/ADHD. This gave me some concerns since when i was an adolescent I used to drink large amounts of green tea which purportedly contains a lot of fluoride. How do you evaluate this piece of research? I would greatly appreciate your feedback!
Avatar f tn But I am wondering if you posted here because you also have ADHD? It would make sense as up to 30% of the people with ADHD have depression. And it makes sense because if you don't understand how ADHD effects you and how to cope with it - it can be very depressing. In fact, a lot of people with ADHD also have anxiety and due to all that start self medicating (not good). Anyway, if you do have ADHD - are you on any meds for it and what are they?
Avatar f tn He sounds very, very normal for an ADHD child. Do you know what ADHD does to a child? Do you know how to work with a child who has ADHD? The way you can help him is to become an expert in ADHD and help him deal with this.
Avatar f tn My Grandson was diagnosed with ADHD,Bipolor and Asbergers as well as a disability in writing .His writing can not be read .He has to start typing things into a computer and print it out . Can Zoloft taken in Pregnancy ,do to a Depression caused by Midral Valve Prolaps,be the cause of all this or of some of this ?
Avatar f tn my son was recently diagnosed with adhd and autism what is to be expected?
Avatar n tn As a last resort we went to a psychiatrist who diagnosed ADHD and put him on Ritalin. It didn't help with the writing and the behavior. I have spent literally hundreds of hours on the Internet learning, researching, reading medical journals and the results of clinical trials. About a year and a half ago I started reading about essential fatty acids and how clinicial trails were showing them to help with behavior problems, dyslexia, dyspraxia and other problems.
Avatar n tn Is your daughter really ADhD? It supposedly VERY rare in girls and is one of the most overdiagnosed problems. Adderal is very addictive and is an amphetamine!
Avatar m tn I also feel as if im choking and cant breathe (not sure if you get this or not) It feels as if your dying itds horrible. I also have ADHD so that doesnt help me much either. Stress and anxiety can do hell to your body, I got so bad at one point i lost quite a bit of hair! It just all came out cos i was in such a panic! I avoid taking the anxiety meds but cos they didnt help me much, because my ADHD medication helps keep the anxiety down.
Avatar f tn Good question on the large increase of ADHD. Part of the increase is probably due to coverage of ADHD under the Individual Disability Education Act of 1990 (ADHD was not included in the list of covered services until 1991). This made a huge difference for parents who were struggling to get help for their kids.
Avatar n tn from a cuboid fracture in my mid-foot. CRPS and RSD are the ADHD of the year. Read the medical journals about the injection. Know exactly what you're getting into before you let anyone do a nerve block at the spinal level. See a physical medicine specialist or pain clinic. Your insurance carrier should have one in network. And a pain clinic isn't just for treatment, they diagnose as well. Physical medicine have methods for diagnosing sources of pain without nerve blocks.
Avatar f tn We decided formula was the best choice we made for our son! The only thing that child has done before ours is talk and my son has ADHD like I did as a child and he doesn't slow down to learn how to talk! He says sippy and yes and no, momma and daddy! Just stuff that he needs to know to get through the day!
Avatar m tn iii) Do you know of anything that has worked for you or that you have tried that might delay their evolution? Antioxidants, etc.? iv) I have ADHD and I'm currently on Adderall, switched from Concerta because I believe they actually increased my floaters in the last couple months. - Do you know of any studies that might show a correlation between stimulants and vitreous degeneration?
540310 tn?1343627720 I was diagnosed at 23 with ADHD, depressive mood disorder,anxiety and ocd. My mum took me to numerous doctors and pyschiatrsts which obviously were of no help. So my mum struggled with me on her own my Dad was there but like most Dads he wouldn't have it he didn't think anything was wrong. So when my Mum and I finally got the answers we were looking for we were relieved. My Mum thought it was her I was a nightmare I can't believe she still loves me.
Avatar f tn I've read there is a bit of overlap between ADHD and aspergers/autism. At one time a psychologist almost changed my diagnosis to ADHD but decided to keep it at PDD NOS. Plus no matter what your son is your son. Nothing has changed here.
7033493 tn?1387276344 I have been a meth addict for 11 years though, it actually has helped me manage my ADHD and is not really a problem. BUT I have to get clean for the courts which means I can't smoke weed either. I quit everything else, I know I am an addict but this is america? rather its from a doctor or a guy on the street, we're all on drugs in one way or another.
184674 tn?1360864093 So they told me they were certain that he did not have ADHD. I was convinced he didn't have ADHD either. Since starting first grade and being in vision therapy, he not only has maintained straight A's in school, but his teacher has told me he's "a model student" and one of her "best students" and most days, "hardly knows he's there" because he's well-behaved and gets his work done.
Avatar n tn I got married to a man with custody of a 6-yr old daughter that was taken from her family due to massive amounts of every type of abuse. We have her in counseling, and she has been diagnosed with Biopolar, Post Traumatic Stress Disorder, and ADHD. She has been forgetting everything. She used to know all of her math addition facts. Now, she can not even understand the concept of adding one to anything. She also used to know how to tie her shoes. Now, she does not do that either.
Avatar f tn While the dr was going through his behaviours he mentioned my son was unusual as he has no 'co-morbs', such as aspergers, autism, adhd etc and is a very high achiever. Without meaning to worry you, it might be worth asking about whether he may have a form of mild tourettes.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with IBS, IC (interstitial cystitis), Endometriosis, and also Anxiety, Depression and ADHD. I couldn't even tell you what to expect from the upcoming tests you have soon. What are they for??
