Adhd predominantly inattentive

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd predominantly inattentive

adhd

Avatar f tn The short answer: There is no difference. Officially, only ADHD exists. It comes in three varieties: ADHD predominantly hyperactive, ADHD predominantly inattentive, and ADHD mixed type. In other words, you don't need to be hyperactive in order to be diagnosed as ADHD. The term ADD is merely a popular abbreviation frequently (mis)used to indicate that someone is inattentive and does not display symptoms of hyperactivity.
Avatar f tn I'm not privy to any scientific studies on the subject you have raised although I am sure they exist somewhere. So all I can offer here at this point is my own experience: I've had ADHD (predominantly inattentive type) since childhood, and BP2 since adolescence. Looking back from age 68 now, I would say that the ADHD has pretty well maintained the same level.

Avatar n tn it could be related to inattentive or hyperactive adhd
Avatar n tn inattentive type, hyperactive-impulsive type and combined type. From your description your son may have inattentive type. Neuropsychiatric testing can be helpful to clarify different reasons for poor academic performance but a good history is the main diagnostic issue. Please discuss these results with your pschologist and physician for further clarification.

Avatar m tn I am 44. Recently diagnosed with inattentive ADHD. I have all types of memory problems, focus/concentration problems. A have a phobia of any situation that might reveal a lack of ability to articulate. I have very poor reading comprehension and have to read and reread many times to process it or in other words there is little automaticity there when I read. I have tried 6 different medications none of which has helped. My only source of relief is avoidance and denial.

Avatar n tn She said that my daughter has been flagged for ADHD. My daughter was 4 in mid-July, so it might be immaturity. However, she seems to be unable to sit still during group activities such as book readings and music lessons. She has intense concentration when she's interested in things, and can play for some time and follow a logical thought to broader and more interesting topics. Should I be taking her to a Child Psycholgist for an evaluation.
Avatar f tn Just started on 36 mg of Concerta (after 2 weeks on 18mg) after being diagnosed with ADHD primarily inattentive. I'm 36 and up until now I've managed to get by without meds.- as a teacher I always had the 'bell' and the students to make sure I was in the right place and prepared.
Avatar f tn Well, he shows classic symptoms of ADD, but I really don't have enough information to give that as a possibility yet. You said his "teachers recommended thearpy, but that did not work last year." Could you give us more information on that. What kind of therapy? Who gave it? I still would like to know his birth date and grade level just to rule that out.
Avatar f tn I have a 5 year old just diagnosed with ADHD, my 13 year old has all the signs of Inattentive ADHD and my 11 year old shows many, many signs as well. What are the chances three of four children could actally have it? Is that normal? I was diagnosed at 14 and on Ritilin for a year or so and then just stopped and am on no meds currently.
Avatar n tn If you are researching the connection between ADD/ADHD and lying, you have to start with ADHD, even if your daughter displays none of the "H" symptoms. Why? Because the DSM IV does not even list a condition called ADD. The latter is merely a popular abbreviation and sometimes people will use it to indicate that their child is not hyperactive. Psychiatrists speak of thre kinds of ADHD: predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive, and mixed type.
Avatar f tn Predominantly Inattentive Type Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive Type Combined Type Sometimes a combination of therapy and medication is indicated. Of all the medications prescribed to treat ADHD, stimulants are often the most effective. Paradoxically, medications that are mild stimulants often deliver a calming effect to the central nervous system (brain and nerves) of those with ADHD. In some cases, antihypertensives or antidepressants may be prescribed.
Avatar m tn My son was diagnosed with adhd inattentive type by his psychologist and his doctor is running more tests to rule out nothing else is going on. There are so many meds out there any suggestion.
5973125 tn?1378575863 Kids who have the Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive Type tend to get noticed right away. Kids who have the Predominantly Inattentive Type can go a long time before it is noticed. I have seen plenty of posts by adults who finally got diagnosed later in life - and it was a huge relief because they always knew something was wrong, but couldn't figure out what it was.
Avatar n tn It may be that you display Inattentive-type ADHD and that the condition has never been diagnosed. Please discontinue use of the Adderall. If you think you should be evaluated for ADHD, do so.
Avatar f tn Ummmm, the teachers say he is very smart - and he barely makes it to second grade? They have noticed he gets distracted. Kind of common for 6 and 7 year old boys, but it sounds like they notice it more with him then the other kids? Something is not quite right. Beginning to think it might be his doctors. How did they reach their decision? They should have had both the home and school fill out surveys about him.
Avatar f tn my daughter was put on ritalian 2 times a day, at her old school she was getting suspended at least once a week but at this school the teachers seem to care more and she got an award for good behavior the first in i dont know how long,the doctor dosen't think she as adhd but thinks she as add i don't want her on medicines for the rest of her life can you suggest any thing else?
Avatar f tn I just feel Dumb and insecure because people look at me as lazy and stupied. I have been reading alot of adhd boards and feel I definatly have the Inattentive adhd. I wish I was hyeractive then I might possibly get something done. I really need some help and any advise on my issue would be greatly appreciated.
Avatar n tn My 14 yr. old son has been diagnosed with Adhd-Inattentive and anxiety disorder. He misses school several days at the time because he says that there are days when he knows that he can't be good and follow the rules. When he does go to school he does well. He's on Lexapro in the evening and Invega in the mornings. He has always contended that just letting it all loose just feels good ( such a relief). I don't understand this. Could there be something else going on here?
Avatar n tn has always said that she thinks I have way more Anxiety then ADHD. I also have the inattentive form of ADHD and I am 32.... please post if you get any further feedback, as I am trying to figure this out as well!

Avatar f tn What are the most obvious & prominent signs of ADD/ ADHD.

Avatar f tn I bite and pick my ring and middle finger on my right hand. I rub them against the other fingers, and sometimes my mouth, to feel the roughness of them. They look absolutely disgusting. I try putting bandaids on them, but I either bite the band aids, or start to attack a different finger. It doesn't feel good but like it somehow makes me feel better I think. I have anxiety and I'm ADHD inattentive. The most biting happens in my college classes throughout the day.
Avatar n tn My 10 yo daughter was diagnosed w/ ADHD (inattentive type) and anxiety disorder last summer. 2 psychologists said her type of ADHD is very responsive to stimulant med. Her 5th gr. teacher says she daydreams but is a good student--very creative and bright--thinks she might be GATE. Teacher doesn't thinks meds are necessary now. We still have a couple of concerns though: her social behavior and negative attitude.
