Avatar m tn i am just wondering if its just me or does people with adhd have sort attention spans
Avatar f tn Its possible that your child may have Asperger's because it's biological uncle has it, but at the same time Asperger's could be a random gene mutation. Asperger's is interesting like that and could be misdiagnosed as ADHD.
Avatar f tn I just seen on NBC news that doctors have discovered a link between children with ADHD and mothers who took Acetaminophen (Tylenol) while pregnant.
Avatar f tn Those are some heavy duty drugs. Im not expert but if the adhd drugs hype him up it may not be adhd. Adhd drugs if a child truly has it wont do that. There are some sensory disorders that can mimic adhd and bipolar and you may want to research that. But definitely see another dr, even if you have to see 2,3,4,or 5 to get to the bottom of things. I had to go through 4 drs before I found one that was right. Good luck to you.

Avatar n tn I am a 21 year old female college student and I was just diagnosed with ADHD. My doctor prescribed me 10 mg of Adderall XR (the capsule form) and I have been taking it in the morning before breakfast. I'm not sure how long it's supposed to take for it to work, but I honestly haven't felt any different. My mind is still fuzzy and wanders constantly, I can't sit still. Does anyone know if its normal for it to not work for the first few days?
Avatar f tn Find out how her teacher handles her and do the same. If that is not enough help I would first get the book, "SOS Help for Parents," by Lynn Clark and follow her recommendations. If you do think she has ADHD (and her teacher should have a pretty good perspective on this), and need more information. Than I would suggest getting, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.
Avatar f tn My youngest daughtter has PDD-NOS and adhd, a mood disorder, and ODD and I'm courious if my child I'm caring will have autism also?
Avatar f tn Hey I have just found out that I'm pregnant, and am around 6 weeks, I have ADHD and don't know whether its safe to take my medication? I have avoided them since I found out but I'm having mood swings and don't know whether its because of my hormones ?
209987 tn?1451935465 LOL!! I am laughing way too hard over that last one paying! Went back to see that annoying doctor yesterday and he says that I ought to get MORE exercise because I have osteoarthritis...how much more active can I possibly get??? First he wants me to sit still because of the knee...and now he wants me to exercise and move as much as possible because of the arthritis! I think HE'S got ADD!!!! lol!! So we've cancelled the knee surgery for now.
Avatar n tn We do not model this behavior for her, and my son (although ADHD, does not have any agression). My husband said he use to just feel the anxiety and anger well up in him when he was in elementary and his teenage years although he was never officially diagnosed, he should have been! As he has gotten older, he has definitely learned to manage it. He is a pastor now, and got over his ODD/Dyslexia and ADHD to graduate college last weekend! How can I help my child?
Avatar f tn So, to the doctor I went. I was diagnosed with ADHD. My parents were in denial and went to get a second opinion. Of coarse, that doctor said the same thing. So they prescribed me Ritalin. Immediately my grades started climbing up and I remember finally feeling normal and feeling like I had no problem doing what I was supposed to do. I was a really smart kid and I felt like I was finally putting my brains to good use! It helped me so much!
Avatar f tn I have an eleven yr old we just found out that she has macroecphaly back in november of last yr and they told us that we should have known at least five yrs ago.
Avatar f tn I've been battling depression all my life, anxiety for the past 4 yrs and recently diagnosed with adult ADHD. I've been on Wellbutrin 300mg for a yr for the depression, Cymbalta 60mg for the last 7 months for the anxiety and Adderall 40mg for the ADHD all have been increased doseages up to now. Do these 3 meds all work together? I feel irritable, moody, agitated easily, short fused, and very frustrarted.
Avatar n tn From your description I don't think he is an ODD-sociopathic kid. Cunning? Definitely! Typically really bright kids can get into trouble before they get the maturation to control themselves. However, because they are really bright, they also tend to figure this out faster then the normal child. Of course, they also can figure out how to manipulate the situation just as fast. Couple of things do bother me though.
Avatar n tn * Type 1 we call Classic ADHD. 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.
1699033 tn?1514113133 I will be sending my ADHD/graphomotor disorder son to college in the fall. He has not been on meds for a long time but he will be given accommodations through their disability program. He chose a small school with only 1600 students. Please pray that things go well! He got himself to this point and I hope he makes it. :) Oh and I should say the school gave him $12,000 a year and that is for a GFP of roughly 2.6. So don't fret out there....
1059647 tn?1255035854 I have ADHD and that sure does sounds just like me, gahhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
Avatar f tn but as they get older then deff boys. I just hate changing a boys diaper too. Especially when they pooped because you have to really get all up on their private part and wipe and everything. Always felt weird to me.
Avatar m tn ) was seeing was a pretty typical kid with ADHD. Depression and anxiety are very common for kids with ADHD. Especially if they have not had any information on how ADHD affects them. You said you were emotionally abused until 6th grade - was that about the time you started taking Adderall? It is very normal to not talk as much when on Adderall because you now have more impulse control.
Avatar f tn Can anyone tell me does Straterra help ODD symptoms of ADHD? My 17 year old special needs daughter has been diagnosed ADHD with ODD for 10yrs, she has the other Dyspraxia, Dyslexia etc extras as well. Recently at a hospital appointment it was decided to put her on Strattera after being on first normal Ritalin then about 7 years ago Concerta, the goal being she eventually, hopefully will be able to just be on Strattera to help her and GOODBYE RITALIN!!!!
Avatar f tn Nothing seems to bother him even when he gets in trouble he just apologies and shrugs it off. My husband is just like that to so he probably gets it from him.
Avatar m tn Understand that technically, everyone has ADHD to some extent. Just because you sometimes display ADHD behavior doesn't mean you have it. But yes, #1 shows inattentiveness. And #2 shows impatience/impulsiveness. Both are ADHD characteristics.
