Avatar f tn My son who is 9 years old was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 6, we have tried adderall, aderral xr, medate, medadate xr and now have gone throught all MG of daytrana patch. He is also taking .2 clonidine at night to help sleep. He also has ODD, my question is what medication can we try him on now that will MAYBE help with both? We have tried the Tenex smallest dose possiblr 1/4 pill in am. And he just could not function.

Avatar m tn The implication of what you describe is that your son, if he does display ADHD, has another condition alongside the ADHD. Weight gain is a common side effect of treatment with Risperidone. Your son should be re-evaluated in psychiatry and also in neurology.
Avatar f tn I was browsing around looking for non pill ways of curing ADHD and I came across a book called How to Cure ADHD. Has any one heard about it? On some other discussion forums some one had mentioned that they had used it and it really improved their child’s behavior. The website http://www.tocureadhd.com/ looked really promising. Has anyone else used it? I would like to finally have a non medical way of dealing with ADHD and this seems like the best option.

1367899 tn?1278121440 My sister and I started a blog on Adderall to learn more about the medication along with alternative and complementary ADHD treatment options. Any feedback from users of Adderall or Adderall XR would be greatly appreciated. Topics to be added this week on http://Adderall.org How is Adderall XR different from Adderall? [Adderall vs. Adderall XR] What is Adderall? How to Make Adderall: [Adderall Background Information] What are the best Adderall and ADHD books?
Avatar n tn Also, it may be worth trying Strattera, a non-stimulant alternative to treat ADHD. By the way, even with children who take stimulant medication for ADHD and who also display oppositional traits, Clonidine is often recommended.
Avatar n tn Is there any help out there for medication? The only help I have found only cuts the cost down about $20-30 and when you're trying to raise 2 children with no insurance coverage that's not really much help, as some of you probably know. My son takes Concerta once aday and Risperdal twice aday (2 tablets). If anybody knows of any better help out there of the name of the drug companies please let me know. Thanks for your time and God Bless!
7552207 tn?1427020403 So I have sever depression and ADHD. I stopped all my medication during my pregnancy just because there is no 100% safe medicine to take while pregnant. And for the most part I can cope with my ADHD, but my depression is absolutely terrible...so my question: After baby is here, will I be able to take my depression medicine and breast feed? I have my heart set on breast feeding and I feel selfish if I cant just because of my own reasons...
7708597 tn?1395400152 You can take tylenol if you want but there is controversy going on on whether or not it leads to ADHD but I would take but thats me. When I take tylenol wih a cup of coffee mine go away.
Avatar f tn Ok, Tenex is a high blood pressure medicine. But, it is used on ADHD children to control hyper activity when other medicines do not work. It is usually not the first medicine that experts use, but one of the last medicines that they use when they have tried many other medicines. Most of the time, Tenex is not a good medicine for ADHD, most of all when used alone. In this case, it is not working unless you just started.
Avatar m tn Please tell your expieriences with ADHD and the medicine so that they can see that the disease and the medicinal affects are real and positive.
1274559 tn?1284132218 I am wondering why you need to have medicine for ADHD? can you handle ADHD without medicine??? I mean is the Medicine necessary?
383943 tn?1217722721 Did she get evaluated by a psycholigist or developmental doctor that specializes in ADHD? If she has ADHD, the first medication that you should try is Metadate CD or Ritalin. Start with a very small dosage such as 2.5mg or 5mg. If it does not work because it is not enough, keep on increasing the amount very slowly until you see that she is doing well. I am not familiar with celexa. If it is a stimulant like Ritalin, the dosage sounds too high.
Avatar f tn t been able to find a medicine that works long term.,she has been on many of the ADHD meds. Can anyone help?
1165577 tn?1263001618 Sorry about my spelling,I mean I am on dexetrime and it's in the same family as adderal and haven't gain weight. You have no problem. Don't worry your in the clear.
Avatar f tn He does this at home, at the grocery store, all the time. I have thought ADHD all along or maybe some form of Autism. I plan to have him evaluated. The thing is that I have read that most of the meds for ADHD have a risk of sudden death. How common is this? What other treatments are available other than RX meds. Thank you for your time.

Avatar m tn HI, I a have a 9 years old boy who was diagnosted with ADHD this year. I had some parent training for behavioral issues and I refused to put my child on medication. I am wondering to try vit b for his behavior issues my question is should I try it ?, if yes wich one I should use ? at what dose ? , is the vit b suplement chemicals or not ? does it have side effects or no ? MY child doesn't have any depression but he is very active and his focus is short.
