Avatar f tn I am working on a graduate research paper about the connection between bipolar and learning disabilities. Any personal experience? Any comment on the subject? Thanks!
Avatar n tn There have been numerous research studies of diets with ADHD, however, nothing has been scientifically proven that they really has any affect on the behavior of ADHD. The best management is behavioral modification and medication, if necessary.
Avatar n tn How do I explain best to teachers how to handle my children in school and get them to cooperate?3.Since germany seems to be ages behind on research about ADHD where do I find most valid information about ADHD or literature which I can translate and forward to schools and doctors?
Avatar m tn You are lucky that you have the ability to home school. Not everyone has the time or resources. A few suggestions - two great books. Sandra Rief’s "How to Reach and Teach Children with ADD/ADHD".  is an extremely detailed book on teaching kids with ADHD. It gives a lot of very detailed methods. The second is "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.
Avatar n tn ve been doing alot of research on adhd and He seems to fit the profile except for the actual hyperactivity component. could he be adhd without neccesarily showing hyperactivity? Would this be covered in neuropsychological testing? He is very disorganized and has great difficulty in school. He says it's because he's lazy.

Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.

5856747 tn?1403348682 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.

Avatar f tn Hello, I am 23 years old and currently diagnosed with Major Depressive Disorder and General Anxiety Disorder along with Post traumatic stress disorder but the past 5 or 6 months I have been questioning some of my diagnosis. I did some research on some stuff that has been going on with me since I was a child and I strongly think I could be add/adhd.
Avatar n tn I am currently doing a course in child care, i have been asked to research behaviour disorders. Is there a difference between ADHD and ADAH or are they both the same disorder?
5066424 tn?1363135569 There are sites out there to help you learn the latest research about treatments for ADHD.
Avatar n tn Maybe google I do know that some research by experts has shown that supplemnts of antioxidants BComplex and Vit C can have the same efficacy as Ritailin....Fish oil Omega 3 has also shown to be useful.
Avatar n tn Research has shown that a diet really has any affect on the behavior of ADHD children. Treatment is behavioral methods and medications, if necessary.
Avatar n tn What is the effect of a stimulant on ADHD. For instance, it seems to me that ADD/ADHD are disorders caused by overstimulation, rather than understimulation. Therefore the use of Dexadrine to treat ADD or ADHD would only worsen the problem; although it is obvious that it is a very good treatment. To sum my question up: What is the actual neurological effect of the stimulants, in particular, Dexadrine?
Avatar m tn Well, besides the links I gave above (which are now very close to 3 years old) - I get all the current research on ADHD material. I have seen nothing new to indicate that any of these programs really work. My recommendation is still - Finally, all studies have shown that the best results are a combination on medication and behavioral therapy.

Avatar n tn no its not good to take I'm on addrall for adhd an they said def no so I had to stop taking it
Avatar f tn Those are some heavy duty drugs. Im not expert but if the adhd drugs hype him up it may not be adhd. Adhd drugs if a child truly has it wont do that. There are some sensory disorders that can mimic adhd and bipolar and you may want to research that. But definitely see another dr, even if you have to see 2,3,4,or 5 to get to the bottom of things. I had to go through 4 drs before I found one that was right. Good luck to you.
Avatar n tn I have a granddaughter that was diagnose with ADHD and she is now in medication, I want to be able to help, because my son has some fears about the future of her daughter, what are some of the common fears and trends about a child with ADHD, I like to be of help to him.
521840 tn?1348840771 However, when an adult has trouble doing all the things he or she needs to get done at home, work, and in educational settings, doctors do not always consider that the culprit could be ADHD. Recent research suggests that as many as 3-5% of adults have ADHD. That could mean that up to 5 out of every hundred adults struggle with underachievement and frustration due to a very treatable disorder. This is a significant number of people, particularly when you consider that ADHD runs in families.
Avatar n tn I have a child with adhd with anxiety, and a sleeping problem. He has been doing well. on strattera, and trazadone. he is growing. but now he is getting again "kicked out of daycare". he is killing me. Iove my son to death, but I don't know what else to do. It seems he does this on purpose to get to be picked up by mommy to be be brought home. I have read, listen and watched everything out there. The one that works the best is Magic 1-2-3... but he is good at home....
Avatar f tn In 1982, the NIH had determined, based on research available at that time, that roughly 5% of children with ADHD could be helped significantly by removing additives from their diet. The vast majority of these children were believed to have food allergies.
