Docs start out low and go slow with the meds waiting for parental feedback, so definitely stay in touch with your doctor. If you have not seen a change, it may be that you are not yet using the right dose or the right med. And, of course, there is a lot more that can be done for a child with ODD. Here are two very good links on working with a child with ODD. http://www.additudemag.
Avatar f tn My son is 5yrs old and has adhd and odd. He is on Ritalin as well as Abilify. The Ritalin helps him be calm but he is constantly throwing temper tantrums at school. They are so bad I have to pick him up early almost everyday. Is there something else that I could do to help this issue?
Avatar m tn Thus, one would think that perhaps that ADHD is the trigger and learning to cope with ADHD would help one also deal with ODD. Thus, I would certainly look into the chances of having had undiagnosed ADD or ADHD as a child/adult. And if so, would work on ADHD coping methods. I have references on that if needed I have included several references that touch on this relationship.
1442812 tn?1284678328 until my sons first appointment with a psyc doc to see if he is adhd and/or odd. Please someone help me to stop crying due to his mean demeaner and blaming me for everything he does wrong. How do I stop his loud outbursts always going over what I say, and his wanting to have "payback" as he puts it. I am afraid of going to sleep with how bad he wants to get payback on us, our family..
Avatar m tn I have a 12 year old grandson diagnosed with ADHD/ODD/Bipolar. He was first prescribed concerta. He did very well for about two weeks and then started to act very violent aggressive and angry. The doctor doubled the dose and the anger and aggression etc. became worse. That was when the doctor diagnosed Bipolar and took him off stimulant and put him on Resperidone / mood stabilizer. He has been on resperidone for 11/2 week showing only ADHD and ODD symptoms.
Avatar f tn My nine yr old son has adhd and odd....opposional defiant disorder. He is on 4 differant medicatind, reperidone,guaficine,danphetimine salt combo and fluoxotine. He has to take thes SEVERAL times a day. It doesn't seem to help. He is extremly disrespectful, rude ,yellls at me my b.f. will not do any thing he is asked to do unless you ask him 500 times. And yes his dad also is not there. Bbxx I read your comments so you might be able to help.
Avatar n tn My son has Bipolar, ADHD, and ODD. They say they are comorbid. Risperdol I would think would be used for ADHD, not ODD. ODD has no medication treatment that I have found thus far. ODD requires lots and lots and lots of patience, always having to stay one step ahead, and making sure your NO's are NO, and YES is YES. It is very hard sometimes. But it gets easier. as to the comment from treazzure007 It is really a shame that you stereotype that way.
Avatar n tn my son is 7 years old and diagnosed with ADHD, ODD and your story matches mine. My son was kicked out of daycares and now kicked out of 1st grade and currently going to a behavioral outpatient treatment center. He has been taking Tenex for 2 weeks now for adhd and the Doctor has decided to start him on Risperadol for the agression, anger, defiant behaviors,and arguing. I hope it works.
Avatar f tn i have a 5 year old that has adhd, he is having some trouble at school with agression, and being really defeint. could he have odd plus adhd?? He is on vyvanse 40mg for his adhd the doc just gave him .1mg of clonidine to help, would that help for odd.
Avatar f tn My son was on Vyvanse and Clonodine for a long time and it was a life saver. He has ADHD and ODD as well. The doctor wanted to try Tenex. We did that for several weeks and I begged to go back on Clonodine. Tenex was awful for us! Clonodine is fantastic and helps him go to sleep at night! If anyone wants to chat, I'm in the same boat~ ***@**** My husband and I have very different coping mechanisms. Any input?
Avatar f tn Something like 35% of the kids with ADHD have ODD and it makes treating the ODD so much more difficult. This is a good link that takes a look at ADHD and other disruptive disorders -
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 // . 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 by Susan Ashley, she states that 33% of the kids with ADHD also have ODD. How you work with a child really depends on what the other disorder might be. So it is really important to pin that down. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Since the weeks have passed, the mouth, nose, and eye ticks have gotten 10x worse. He was recently diagnosed with ADHD and slight ODD. I was just wondering if the facial tick issue we are experiencing has anything to do with the adhd/odd or if there could be something else going on?
Avatar n tn He has had a tough year at school and we have tried alot of different medicines but they seem to help his ADHD but makes his ODD worst. He is currently taking Metadate cd 20 mg and he still has defiant and agressive problems. We have tried alot of the stimulates and they all seems to have the same effects. Should we move on to Risperdal or abilify? Or maybe try clondine? Can you help?
Avatar f tn I have 2 sons both with ADHD the youngest also has ODD my question is how likely is it that my younger son has some form of Autism instead of ADHD & ODD? How would i go about gettin him tested for it also?
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 f tn After a series of tests on her part and questionnaires on our part, he diagnosed her with ADHD (inattentive type with no H factor) and Oppositional Defiant Disorder. He recommended meds for ADHD and family therapy for the ODD. Our pediatrician does not take this diag lightly, so they are testing her again as like a 2nd opinion. We do that on Sept 16th. I am just so overwhelmed right now.
Avatar n tn Then he was diagnosed with having ADHD, ODD, Intermitent Explosive Disorder and Bipolar. He started taking Resperdal which did nothing and then was placed on Lamictal which has been a positive for him. Now since he is 12 years old and 6'2" tall weigting 200 lbs, the ODD, ADHD is really acting out right now. He can't sleep and always showing more and more the symptoms of ODD, ADHD and IED at school and at home.
Avatar n tn I have a 9 yr old son with ADHD ODD & LD. He is so angry at school his anger outbursts have started to turn quite violent. I am the only one who can calm him down so I am constantly at the school. So far behind with his schooling. He has been like this for 3 yrs. HELP!!! He was on Ritalin no on slow release concerta 36mg. Helps the adhd a little not much. But its the anger I need to get under control. Have asked dr after dr but everyone just brushes me off!!!
Avatar f tn I have a beautiful little 4 yr old girl with ADHD and ODD. She is incredibly smart, and we can already tell that she will not have the learning problem that her brother (also ADHD but not ODD) has. We have a loving family with both parents living at home... Our issue is that her ODD is really ruining her pre-school environment and I'm not sure what to do! We have her set up with a psychiatrist who agrees that she is definitely a strong-willed ADHD/ODD child.
Avatar n tn old daughter that the doctors are telling her that she has ADHD/ODD/Bipolar. they have her on Abilify but it only works for a little bit then they have to change her medications. yes the child was tramatized as a young child. she walked in and found her father dead. but we don't think that has little if anything to do with it. is there any medication out there that will combat all three problems with little or no side effects or other problems? please help the mother is at wits end.
414608 tn?1221754268 This is an upadate.... We went to a new psychiatrist, she read the therapists notes and agreed that he may have ADHD/ODD but also maybe early onset bipolar(which i don't agree yet because of his age) and my 5 year old has been prescribed Resperidol 0.25ml twice a day. This has really helped with the mood swings, defiant behavior, sleep, and appetite. His behavior got better, but his focus was not at all.
