Avatar f tn After living with ADHD for 7 years I told my BFF about it. She began telling it doesn't exist and everyone has it. She asked me if I was in meds I said no. I can't take meds because I'm also bipolar and it causes manic stuff. I didn't tell her about the bipolar. Is ADHD really something everyone has or did she just make that up?
7087196 tn?1389306119 //www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/nightares-and-adhd-/show/1341324#post_6131310 Am surprised that Risperdal is indicated for ADHD. I can find nothing online that would agree with that. However, it certainly would work for anxiety which is a common disorder of ADHD. And I do read that it makes some of the other meds more effective. But, I still think it is being used mainly to treat the bipolar problem.
Avatar m tn you might consider talking with his pediatrician about his behavior, and ask if he can be screened / tested for ADHD or any other behavioral disorders; also ask about medications which could help in combination w/ therapy, unless you've already done so.
521840 tn?1348840771 These same childhood symptoms take on different forms in adults with ADHD. For example, most adults with ADHD are not floridly hyperactive. Instead, an adult is more likely to report ‘inner restlessness’ or problems with impulsivity. Symptoms of ADHD impact important adult tasks such as remembering to pay the mortgage, paying attention while driving, or managing your children’s schedules.

Avatar n tn Adderall is the most commonly prescribed ADHD medicine for adults. I think most insurance companies cover it until a person is 25. Some will cover it for longer. I had to start paying out of pocket on my 26th birthday. Some versions of extend release Ritalin are also FDA approved for adults and there are also non stimulant alternatives.
Avatar f tn My son was diagnosed with ADHD 5 years ago. Been on medication for 3 years increased meds nov 12, had meeting with senco and have been informed the teachers think because his medication is now correct for ADHD he is showing traits of asd. The senco wants an accambac ( not sure how its spelt) questionaire to be sent to school and myself from his ADHD doctor. Is this questionaire for a new diagnosis or to confirm he has both asd and ADHD.
Avatar f tn I have several questions regarding treatment options for adults with PDD and ADHD. 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.
Avatar f tn I think it could very easily not catch a child with ADD. The gold standard for diagnosis is to do a questionnaire with the teachers and parents. ADD and ADHD are very different. Good link here - https://helpguide.org/articles/add-adhd/attention-deficit-disorder-adhd-in-children.htm My personal opinion is that this test is just a way for inexperienced professionals to deal with a problem they have little knowledge of. Are you in the United States (which state) or England?
Avatar m tn it's very unlikely that anyone would suddenly become ADHD in adulthood. the brain is shaped by genetics as well as life experiences from the minute you're born, so if a person is 18 years and has always been organized, thorough, efficient and able to concentrate well on any given task, by that time their brain is pretty much hard-wired to work in a way consistent with those traits.
Avatar f tn So desperate I went to an ADHD specialist psychiatrist and after making me fill in a questionnaire and speaking to me for 50 minutes; he decided I had the sort of space cadet qualities (circuitous thinking- diverging instead of converging thoughts) of the 'inattentive hypoactive (as opposed to hyperactive) dopamine deficient ADHD candidate' . He admitted he wasn't 100% sure (how can anyone be?) but decided to try me out on concerta.
Avatar n tn Josie came over at ten thirty with a letter containing an appointment date and a massive psychiatric questionnaire for me to fill out. I started feeling ill, but tried to keep a straight face. We picked up dad and then I was left to go through the questions and panic on my own. Felt horrible, cried, called mom and she came home and I freaked out and then I calmed down and finished the questionnaire and felt a little better. Practised drawing. Played melodeon.
Avatar f tn I need to do a research on symptoms and management of lactose intolerance in children under 5 years of age. These answers can be given by moms or adults who have been patients themselves. Can you please help me fill my questionnaire?

Avatar n tn I don't believe that Dexadrine was intended for children (or adults) with ADHD. I myself have ADD, and I don't believe this is the case at all.
1546912 tn?1293809481 A fruitless search for an Adult-specific ADHD forum and support community left me frustrated and cranky. Combing through general ADHD forums is -- ironically -- the worst thing for an ADHD adult who is eager to find success strategies. When I found the Mr. Tuckman's quote, I gave up the hunt and decided to put my energy into creating this forum. Please participate, enjoy, and contribute to what will be a God-send for other adults.

Avatar f tn So tonight was very very very difficult. I was over at Cheri's house and a couple times and her nephew Bill mentioned " just beat the child quote for children acting up. That was disturbing but I've moved on and didn't spend much notice on it. But when Bob started in on your " raising a nine-year-old p u s s y quote and saying that over and over a couple times I asked him to stop. He ignored my requests saying "No".
Avatar m tn And, yes, exercise can be very helpful. While a lot of the links are aimed at kids, it works just as well for adults. Not to mention that exercise is a great way to battle depression. http://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/the-athletes-way/201410/8-ways-exercise-can-help-your-child-do-better-in-school The jury is still out on supplements. There is no question that eating healthy is important. A high protein breakfast is very important!

1380252 tn?1279892799 Moreover, the relaxing of the diagnostic criteria for AD(H)D, and concomitantly, that of diagnostic creep, have resulted in a 4000 per cent increase in those children (adults?) diagnosed with ADD and ADHD, since the mid-1970s! In essence, children are more likely to be diagnosed in school. Adults, especially those individuals who were labeled in childhood, usually seek out a diagnosis when confronted with those cares and concerns of a "grown-up world".
