Common Questions and Answers about Adhd pi

adhd

Avatar n tn My wife has mentioned ADHD before but my son has never been hyperactive in any way. In fact its just the opposite, he is beyond mellow. Recently I read about ADHD PI and this seems to describe my son perfectly. I guess my question is would it benefit my son if we look into treatment for these problems or is he old enough that he can start to learn to control this himself? I'm worried because I'm not going to be there to help him forever.
Avatar f tn Hi my son is 11 yrs old and was diagnosed with adhd when he was 5-6 yrs old. I was told recently the left side of his heart is enlarged. I was told its level 3 and he needs more tests. I was also told to keep him off all stimulants. Im freakin out, is this as serious as it sounds? Does adhd meds like concerta cause this condition ?
Avatar n tn Hello I have irritable bowel expressed pain and spasms in the lower abdomen. I noticed that I was taking some medication and then come back pains become much more powerful and terrible for a few months. I want to treat my ADHD with medication that call "Vyvanse". And in the PI registered Heather write that the medication can cause abdominal pain. So I wanted to ask whether it is better to avoid the medication? Is this a known phenomenon that such strong abdominal pains by taking drugs?

Avatar m tn both my kids have ADHD-PI diagnosed in high school. the older took concerta (the lowest dose) for several years and it helped her, but the drug effects are wearing off recently. the younger was just diagnosed with ADHD-PI and secondary depression. while waiting for his pediatric psychiatrist appointment I started him on vit B complex 50, 5HTP, vit C, fish oil, and DMAE and in 2 days he is as good as new. is there a benefit of going through the prescription route?
Avatar n tn His previous seizure medicine was Carbatrol. He is also currently taking Dexedrine 15 mg. for ADHD. Is it safe to assume that his is not getting the currect dose of Tegretol if it's coming out in his stool ? The pills are "puffier" when they come out in his stool.

Avatar n tn I promise you its a miracle drink, my son hasn't been sick in months even though he was exposed to the flu, and his stress tic disapeared, which was somthing I could never get rid of, also his energy is up, I don't know if you know anything about ADHD-PI but its like the opposite symptoms of regular adhd, instead of hyperactive they are down right fatigued, and sluggish.
Avatar n tn ) to see if it work for getting to sleep earlier as I have ADHD-PI and am a complete night owl. It knocked me out, I don't need that much. BTW, I am extremely sensitive to medications. So is it from the new vitamins or the Melatonin or is it anxiety and/or digestive problems? I am also lactose intolerant and have been eating dairy but taking lactose pills. Thanks for any suggestions you have!
1253584 tn?1332881554 //www.healing-arts.org/children/ADHD/treatments.htm Warning - there is a lot of info here. Don't try and digest it all in one sitting. And if you have any questions please feel free to repost. By the way, I am pretty sure that your doc will do some kind of testing before making any recommendations. If you do have ADD, a typical response is medication of some kind And then depending on what kind of a doctor he/she is you mayl get followup recommendations. . Don't stop there.
Avatar n tn I'm on Pregabalin which has reduced the level of my suffering, but the cognitive problems remain. Ritalin treats these symptoms in attention deficit disorder (ADHD-PI). Is Ritalin ever prescribed to treat these symptoms in chronic pain?

Avatar n tn I was on relafen also but chose not to take it due to it's effect on the liver. I do fine with the neurontin and the baclofen. The strattera is for adhd which I truly feel I do not have but it helps with concentration, depression and I feel alot better when I'm taking it. The seroquel is to sleep cause without it I cannot sleep due to the chronic pain. I have been having this problem for about 8 years and it is getting worse.
Avatar f tn Just reciently I started looking into add pi. And social anxiety. I think It might be a combination of everything but I'm not sure. I have a really hard time consitrating, expesially in conversation. My mind just goes blank and I don't know what to say. Sometimes, expesially in groups, I don't say a word. I get nervous when I try to speak and mix up my words alot. The longer I go being quiet the more uncomfortable I become and it just makes it even harder for me to get a word out.
Avatar f tn - Hypothyroid (TSH is mostly ok but free t3 and free t4 just will not go into range) - Rosacea - IBS and food sensitivities (improved significantly since SIBO treatment but still an issue) - Fibromyalgia, probable myofascial pain syndrome - Chronic tension headaches and silent migraines - Raynaud's - Erythromelalgia (this is the one ruining my life the most right now, I literally can't go outside during the day) - Dry mouth, eyes, skin - Alopecia androgena - Low progesterone, low-normal estrog
Avatar f tn I have been treated for ADHD with Vyvanse for almost two years now and have recently been diagnosed with a mood disorder. My doctor gave me a script for a mood stabilizer, but I want to do something more than just take pills. I need to actively do something more to help get my life on track. I can't just leave pills to be my sanity anchor. Any suggestions?
Avatar m tn I'm no doctor and I don't have the answers but I have this and was recently diagnosed with ADHD-PI. I've always had some form of sleeping difficulty but just waking up suddenly and way too much time dreaming (nightmares mostly) and barely any deep sleep are the main things that happen. I do wonder if the sleep disorder could be the cause of the ADHD but then I've always seemed to be quite 'odd' compared to others so i turn back to, no it's likely just part of it or a coincidence.
Avatar n tn In the end, it doesn't matter what causes it, I'm fine, waiting for a PI/IFN combo and keeping in touch with the doc. He says I turned a corner and got old. I hated him for saying it, but he was right. So, now, I'm old, I have Hep C and I gotta get my backside slimmed down. But none of this is even close to what you described. I do not think what you described in such detail could be left over from IFN, more people would be reporting it and there should be more data out there about it.
Avatar f tn Don't really eat a lot of fried or fatty foods. I don't drink or smoke. I take Adderall (40 mgs/daily) for ADHD-PI (ADD) and was recently diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and take Cymbalta for that. In April 2010 I began having severe, severe abdominal pain completely out of the blue. The pain was so bad that I could not sleep or really, do much of anything else. I was throwing up (mostly bile) two to three times a day.
Avatar f tn He went to a psychiatrist a little over a week ago and convinced him he is ADHD and got a prescription for vivanse. The police called me last Tuesday and had him pulled over due to someone calling in on him for his driving. The officer said he gave him a sobriety test and said he didnt really seem intoxicated and had me take him home and had his ride impounded due to no insurance.
Avatar f tn I had the same issue at the beginning of the year..very frustrating!!
Avatar n tn I finally started doing research on any natural way to help, my own son has ADHD-PI. So I told my mother to try some of the things that I was giving my own child. Well I'm pretty sure I saved her life or his. First I had her start him on trace minerals, The tourretts disapeared with that, but all the other issues were still present, then I had her add a good b-complex supplement, and I like liquid everything, I believe kids with these nerological issues have problems absorbing nutrients.
Avatar n tn Why would we be allowed to know what pi equals, or how to swing a bat, or how to make mac and cheese in the microwave, or knit a scarf and not have the most basic scientific information about ourselves? If you were happy before the knowledge, there is comfort and joy in that. (I'm sorry nothisdaughter, I can't imagine what you must be going through and my heart goes out to you and your dad for your loss and your secret.
