5856747 tn?1403348682 There are basically two approaches to the management of ADHD – behavioural modification and medication. Of the two the former is preferable of course although it does require many hours and great patients. Medication on the other hand might be seen as a quick fix. The medication most often used today is a drug called Ritalin. This is not without potential side-effects some of them life long and serious.. However, it does not need to be one or the other.
Avatar f tn // . However, ignore the prozac stuff. It is very bad to mix with stim meds. Finally, there are things that you can do at home to make it better for him and you. These two links should be helpful Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if I go to a different psychiatrist could I get the medication prescribed to me again because it was helping me and I was diagnosed with adhd by a psychiatrist. Does anyone know if a psychiatrist stops prescribing you a medication because of possible abuse does he/she make a note somewhere so I would be unable to ever pick up a prescription to that medication again. If anyone can help me with this problem I would appreciate it.
Avatar f tn His doctors is very familiar with the ADHD because is own son is ADHD s he knws what we are going through. My son has his ggod days and his bad days. He is more out going an active with the Vyvanse than he was with the Daytrana, I am cncerned that it may not be strong enough. I am already antisipating that he will probably be held back this year in school and maybe that would be a good thing. He would then realize that there are consequences for his actions.
Avatar f tn My son has ADHD and mood disorder. We need a medication that can hlep both. He gets frustrated and irrated easily and we really want to change that. He is currently taking focalin and zohloft.

Avatar n tn It is possible that your son has both ADHD and anxiety issues. However, it is common today for medical personnel to misdiagnose a child because the behaviours for some anxiety disorders and ADD/ADHD are very similar. Since the medication for ADHD is not working, I wonder if this could be the problem in your son's situation - he suffers from anxiety but not ADD/ADHD. Usually, the medication for anxiety is one of the SSRI's - non-habit-forming medications.

Avatar n tn What is the effect of a stimulant on ADHD. For instance, it seems to me that ADD/ADHD are disorders caused by overstimulation, rather than understimulation. Therefore the use of Dexadrine to treat ADD or ADHD would only worsen the problem; although it is obvious that it is a very good treatment. To sum my question up: What is the actual neurological effect of the stimulants, in particular, Dexadrine?
Avatar n tn My son has alternating esotropia and unfortunately had strabismus surgery already, at the age of 4. He also used to take medication for ADHD, but someone told me that this could make if more difficult for him to "cope" with the esotropia. He is really battling to cope with the workload at school and I'm concidering putting him back on ADHD medication. What would you suggest?
