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 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 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 m tn I am wanting so answers regarding ADD in adults. What are the major symptoms? Does it get more severe with age? My Focus in high school was very difficult.

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 n tn Diagnosing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults can be quite difficult, especially if that diagnosis was not made earlier before the age of 7 years. Signs of ADHD in adults include inability to concentrate, difficulty in organizing and completing tasks, easy distractibility, and sudden decision making without a thought of the consequences.

Avatar m tn Ritalin for Adults With ADHD. Ritalin for ADHD treatment in adults has not been adequately studied, meaning that no large studies have been conducted on the benefits and risks of using it to treat adult ADHD. However, healthcare providers may prescribe Ritalin for adult ADHD in certain situations. This is considered an "off-label" of the drug.
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 n tn , but in terms of the playing the odds for the best quality of life, going with stimulants alone may not help as much as working with a well trained professional who has expertise in treating adults with ADHD. Your psychologist/coach can teach you ways of coping with your symptoms and help you overcome obstacles that are getting in your way.

1462810 tn?1327360449 I believe, based only on what I've read, my own symptoms, test results, and failed treatments, that both ADD/ADHD and fibromyalgia are just symptom cascades of adrenal exhaustion... And that treating the symptoms without addressing the changes required to treat the cause is criminal.
Avatar f tn I would seek a second opinion on his ADHD diagnosis. A 3 year old really shouldn't be diagnosed as such. Nearly all toddlers exhibit all (or nearly all) of the symptoms of ADHD - that is their nature. I can't say I agree with medicating a 3 year old for ADHD either, but that is my personal thought and I am not a medical professional. Some of the symptoms you referred to don't occur with ADHD - which is why I think seeking a second opinion would be helpful to you.
Avatar f tn Actually, research tends to indicate that very few people with anxiety also suffer from ADHD/ADD, although, of course, that is always a possibility. Most people with anxiety have ADHD symptoms but, in fact, do not have ADHD (this is why so often one will read that Ritalin or similar medication is not working). I also believe that mild/moderate anxiety can be helped with herbal and/or natural remedies. So, why not try this route as a first option.

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.
Avatar f tn I'm 28, was diagnosed with depression as a young teen, so been on rollercoaster ride for a while now... I feel like I'm getting worse especially with my mood these days. Just wondering is there any harm in going to a doctor just to get ADHD test done? I'm not a doctor I just feel like I'm lacking more concentration and lack of motivation, most days I can't be bothered doing anything and I hate been lazy.... Can some one help please?
