Avatar n tn Your son may well display ADHD, but it is important to arrange a thorough evaluation and not rush too quickly to the diagnosis. The on-line surveys can be useful tools to see if a person might display symptoms typical of ADHD, but a thorough assessment will consider a child's medical history, family history, current functioning at home and in school, possible alternative explanations for the symptoms identified on the surveys, etc.
Avatar n tn I am teacher's mother. 61 and ADHD. I benefit from medication but can't afford it now. She is also ADHD. There is a theory that this situation has a connection with L-dopa. My mother had Parkinson's, which is an L-dopa situation. I know others who had Parkinson's parents and ADHD children. More than a coincidence, I think. So, very much a biological situation. And genetic.
Avatar m tn I always had trouble wrting essays,my mind would not work and cause distress,and also when had to read a book.Is it possible that untreated ADHD got me into this mess,and if indeed i do have ADHD and treat it with medication, will it improve my situation(i will be less anxious in certain conditions because my mind would slow down and think more organised,i would be less agitated,less impulsive,i would procrastinate less,improve my depression)?
327385 tn?1378360731 Sounds like your talking about my daughter, and she has ADHD. They started her off on Adderal XR, but she is now on Vyvance (sp). She did and does all the things you have listed, including the stealing and not knowing why. Your best bet is to try and find a peds doctor that specializes in ADD/ADHD. If she is found to have ADHD, so of the things she does might not go away, like the stealing.
Avatar m tn By the way, I have seen several studies that show that sleep apnea can produce ADHD like symptoms. In fact, there have been several posters on here that have had sleep apnea, been treated and their daytime behaviors definitely changed. Has anybody ever commented about you snoring or breathing loud at night? "Regardless of type, an individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening.

Avatar f tn "Treatment starts with controlling adhd symptoms." When a childs adhd symptoms "are reduced there usually is an improvement in ODD symptoms. Stimulant medications have been shown to decrease adhd symptoms, as well as those of ODD, by up to 50%." In my opinion, the doctors have been not dealing with the cause of her ODD. Nothing you have stated is really recommended to treat adhd. My recommendation for a good adhd medication starts with a good doctor.
Avatar m tn I am school counselor, I came across a case of 10 year old boy who had history of seizure when he was 2yrs old but never got any attack there after. But since past 2 yrs he is showing extreme behavior problems like stealing, lying and restlessness. All Symptoms pointed towards ADHD and i found him having problem of reading and writing which are typical symptoms of LD like confusion with left and right, spelling mistake of omission,subtraction etc.
Avatar f tn I hate to tell you this, but it sure sounds like pregnancy to me.
Avatar f tn But when inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsive behavior are the norm for a child, it may be a sign of ADHD. ADHD can lead to problems at home and at school, with family, teachers, and peers, so it’s important to identify the symptoms and get help.
Avatar f tn Depression and Anxiety are very common co-disorders of ADHD. And sometimes the bipolar diagnosis is not true due to the other symptoms. So its always worth taking a look at the difference between the two. Here are a couple of links for that. http://www.currentpsychiatry.com/home/article/adhd-or-bipolar-disorder-age-specific-manic-symptoms-are-key/2e1d5ec4615c5b9da40d435fca5f560c.html http://www.additudemag.com/adhd/article/2511.
Avatar f tn Have you tried Strattera for the ADHD because, unfortunately, most other medications that help the symptoms of ADHD are stimulants and will exaserbate the symptoms of BP.Good luck with your quest. I'm still trying to get the balance right myself.
Avatar f tn The question concerns a boy who shows seizure like ADHD symptoms which last a certain time and then completely resume. In good phases he can sit down and read a book for 30 minutes or work on school work, is nice to talk to, has behavior control. Once he is in the other stage he will make funny noises, talks like a maniac, can't sit still, loses all his manners, insults people, can't concentrate on anything, very sensitive to sounds, can't control himself.
1053987 tn?1279304510 The key to distinguishing between the two is that, to warrant a diagnosis of ADHD, the symptoms must have been present in childhood. The ADHD-like symptoms of BPII begin at any time with the onset of the disorder.
Avatar n tn My daughters symptoms went away quickly my son need a pretty high dose because his symptoms were more severe. The tricky part in this is the ADHD because the ADHD meds can make OCD symtoms worse! They are stimulants. Try only the seratonin med first. Sometimes ADHD can be solved with only this. You need a good Neuropsychologist here for the Tourettes/ADHD. They are the brain chemical experts. Not a Neurologist. Insist on an MRI w/ your Neurologist though!
Avatar n tn She is having problems with her 9year old son. Until about a year and a half ago, he was a quiet, shy, polite boy. Now he goes through phases of ADHD-like behavior and she has linked it to milk intake. He is "normal" until about an hour after drinking milk or having milk in his cereal. She has eliminated milk for a week or more at a time and had NO PROBLEMS with him...but as soon as he has milk again he is hyper, rude, inattentive, etc. This subsides after a few hours.
671512 tn?1226563206 I made a recommendation for a "Behavioral Tracker" a couple of months ago, and Med Help replied that they would "add it to their list of to-do's". (I had asked specifically about ADD/ADHD, Asperger's, and Autism behaviors. Perhaps after reading your post, MedHelp will consider including symptoms of ODD on the tracker as well.) While that may be available sometime in the future, MedHelp currently has a mood tracker that might be helpful to you.
