Common Questions and Answers about Adhd nos


Avatar m tn I have a child who was diagnosed with combined type ADHD at the age of 5 years old. Her doctor is now suggesting that " in addition" to ADHD my child might have PDD-NOS. My child is now 8 years old. My question is whether a child can have both diagnosis of ADHD and PDD-NOS. I told the doctor that I did not think that she has both. The doctor suggested that the additional PDD-NOS diagnosis would get the child more services from the school.
Avatar n tn My 6yr old son was diagnosed borderline ADHD. He also has PDD-NOS. Two months ago, he was given Adderall and Clonitin to help w/ADHD however, we had to stop the Clonitin since it lowered his heart rate and was making him very ill. We continued w/Adderall (1/3 of the time release capsule)sprinkled over apple sauce only ONCE a day. My son is extremely sensitive to medications. Now he has developed these tics -- he licks everything and I mean everything; he also clocks like a chicken!

1546631 tn?1321643204 ll start with our story, my 8yo little boy has current diagnoses of psychotic disorder NOS, mood disorder NOS, and ADHD, combined type. We are pending diagnoses of Schizoaffective disorder, Bipolar disorder with psychosis. It's been a rough road, and still is. His meds are constantly being changed, and we just had another hospitalization. I have hope for the future, and believe we can all find support here. What is your story?
Avatar f tn Now we had her evaluated for other disabilities and she came back with ADHD but were told she does not have PDD-NOS. We disagree she has so many of the behaviors but is not typical with autism. She is social but so awkward and Immature. She is FIXATED by the topic dogs and her life revolves around them. She acts like them even peeing on people pretend of course but she will crawl up and lift her legs at strangers, friends, peers and her family.
Avatar f tn off of attention - both negative and positive, but I need this to stop. He has been dignosed with Aneixty Disorder NOS, ADHD and Behavior Disorder NOS. I am at wits end in getting him to help around the house and he refuses. He goes to counseling every 2 weeks, has tried all of the ADHD meds (which usually causes him to have tics), and currently taking depokote and risperdal.
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 I have a 3yrs 5mo daughter with Turner Syndrome, ADHD, PDD NOS, SPD, Anxiety Disorder, ADHD combined who last year we noticed a leg discrepancy. We took her in and was told we caught this very early was X-rayed and sent to Scottish Rite, Dallas TX (Nov 08). There we were told this is not TS related but had no explanation for the odd discrepancy as her left femur is longer than her right but her left tibia is shorter than her right, therefore making her right leg slightly longer.
1546631 tn?1321643204 diagnosis is psychotic disorder NOS, and ADHD. BUT, the psychiatrist said he is most likely schizoaffective bipolar type, with depression and possibly Aspergers. He has been seeing her since Feb, when he was hospitalized for a pretty big crisis. He's a great kid, smart, artistic, funny, but it breaks my heart when he just switches into (what he calls the hulk).
Avatar f tn My 7 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD and a behavior disorder NOS. TThey think the behavior disorder may be bipolar but they said he is too young to say for sure. He is currently taking adderal xr, risperdal and clonidine. Just recently he has become more angry in the evenings and he is not sleeping through the night again. Do you have any suggestions? Prior to the clonidine he was taking melatonin.
Avatar f tn Epilepsy,central sleep apnea,sleep disorder nos (narcolepsy is suspected but cataplexy is absent), episodic bradycardia, atrial septal defect, fetal alchohol syndrome w/ dysmorphic facies, scoliosis, chronic constipation, apraxia/speesh delay, mild mental retardation,left hypophoria and esophoria, low oral tone, asthma, ADHD, behavioral problems including ODD. She is currently taking the following meds. Depakote 250 mg morning and night, concerta 18 mg morning only, risperidal .
Avatar n tn If he is not talking at an age appropriate level, he probably does not have Aspergers. He might have autism, PPD -NOS (mild autism) or ADHD. It sounds to me like the fact that he is running in the hallway and bagging things is a characteristic of ADHD. ADHD children also are very stuborn and want to do things their way such as putting their dishes away. They also seem not to hear at times. Read up on ADHD (Barkley is a writer/expert on ADHD) and see if it fits him better.
Avatar f tn said I have ADHD Hyperactive type with panic disorder and caregiver stress disorder. Quite honestly, it appears the symptoms are so close it is hard to tell. So far no meds have worked and I have to deal with ups,downs, and panic attacks nearly every day. Help!
Avatar f tn My brother was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and ADHD when he was five years old. He did not receive pharmacologic interventions, but received intensive Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy. He is now 24 years old, and has done incredibly well. He currently attends college at the Art Institute of California in San Francisco. He does, however, continue to struggle with communication, organization, and initiating tasks.
Avatar f tn hello, my oldest child has Pdd-nos,Bipolar,Adhd, and other things. He has very bad meltdowns and i don't know how to help him. I try singing , rocking, talking to him but nothing works. I asked the doctor and all he says make sure he doesn't hurt himself and be patience. I have. But it scary to see him like this. He not a mean child. But during these meltdown he try to hurt me and himself and anything around him. No one in my family has these problem.
1713197 tn?1308519712 My 5yr old daughter is DX'ed with a rare eye disorder (actually a couple disorders wrapped into one) called ''ocular melanosis with episcleral pigment & diffuse iris nevus''. Her right eye is about 80% affected & her left eye is developing 2 spots as well. She is also DX'ed with ADHD-combined, ODD, generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, mild verbal apraxia, & ''disorder of infancy, childhood, or adolescence NOS''.
Avatar n tn My son is now 13. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was in 3rd grade. I am a teacher and have done a lot of research on adhd and odd. I think he has ODD. He hates to take his concerta because it makes him lose his appetite I do see a change when on meds. He does ok in school while not on meds but when at home he is a nightmare. He fits all the classic symptoms of ODD. At home he defies everything we ask him to do and he throws fits when he does not get his way. He is very disrespectful also.
379128 tn?1297344988 My son was diagnosed in 1983 with Hyperactivity dis..ADHD..and boy, was he manic..he did not sleep for the first 3 1/2 years, 20 min at most..I contacted a person in local paper..I decided I had to try I put my son on a diet.. This diet simple, but, then very expensive..cutting out, all E nos, addictives, preservatives..especially apples-contain a force thats a little like asprin-coupled with me attending a nurture group-through social services..
Avatar f tn I'll start by saying my son has these diagnosis. Seizure disorder, Severe ADHD, PDD-NOS, Arnold Chiari Malformation, Sensory Dysfunction and asthma. My son has always had motor issues too. When he was a new born he was very stiff baby who arched so severely he put my wrist out trying to hold onto him. Now at 5yrs he is floppy and falls, leans and can move quite awkwardly. Gait is off too. At 4months he was tested for Muscular Dystraphy, Cerebral Palsy and water/fluid on the brain.
Avatar f tn They constantly change and the list keeps growing. He has been diagonised with Aspbergers PPD, Bi polar D/o NOS, ADHD, Dewaynes syndrome, and recently ( yesterday) had an mri to rule out sturge webber syndrome and confirm PHACES. He had an abnormality show up in his mri. The tech said there was distortion from metal in his head but could not be sure af the size or excact placement of the object due to the distortion.
Avatar n tn And I agree with previous poster - they find lots of links between ADHD and ASD - PDD-NOS (which is kind-a-catch all diagnosis anyway) is often misdiagnosed as ADHD/ADD at yonger age...When was your son diagnosed with ADHD?
Avatar n tn Hi my son is 8 years old and was diagnosed about a week and a half ago with PDD-NOS over all. He also evidently has ADHD and ODD. The psychiatrist explained that he has a High Function Autism. I have been looking up and reading what ever I could on the internet about this so far. I have run into a lot of interesting resources. Ever since he could crawl I have always had to be right there on his heels to keep him from doing unintentionally harmful things.
Avatar n tn I've had psychologists want to label me as ADHD or ADHD with my diagnosis of PDD nos. Answer you're looking for is probably yes. Like someone with ADHD I have a hard time focusing. I tend to get distracted, focus too much on distraction and then get distracted and focus on that distraction. As a child some considered me hyper active.
1713197 tn?1308519712 My 5yr old daughter is DX'ed with a rare eye disorder called ''ocular melanosis with episcleral pigment & diffuse iris nevus''. She also has DX'es of ADHD-combined, ODD, generalized anxiety disorder, OCD, mild verbal apraxia, & ''disorder of infancy, childhood, or adolescene NOS''. There is little info on Ocular Melanosis (OM) but after research, I have found a few others who have children with OM.
Avatar n tn First appointment the Neurologist said she did not think he was on the spectrum and said i should think about/read up on adhd (said he was too young to diagnose but we need to think about) last weeks appointment she just said that my son has language delay and to keep up w/ speech etc etc..she told me that he CAN catch up and she says she has seen this before (esp boys) and she is optimistic he will catch up to his peers eventually...
