Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms anger


Avatar f tn Hey Kelly, one of the symptoms of ADHD is a lack of filters and impulsiveness. Both of those things can lead to anger outburts. Basically it makes it harder for you to count to 10. Ritilin gave you that time. But I would think at your age that you can learn to deal with it. And yes, I would think that Anger Management classes would give you some of those skills. However, you need to know what your triggers are.

Avatar m tn He has been on resperidone for 11/2 week showing only ADHD and ODD symptoms. He is driving us crazy but not showing any signs of anger or aggression. We then introduced ADHD medication, guanfacine, evening only. Second day he started exhibiting more aggressive, angry behavior. I plan to call the Doctor on Monday, but wanted to know if anyone else had similar situation?
1211960 tn?1272978102 Type 6 -- The Ring of Fire. Cross between ADHD and bipolar disorder. Characterized by moodiness, aggressiveness, and anger. Anticonvulsants or newer antipsychotic medications tend to work better than stimulants. Now I am starting to doubt my diagnosis of bipolar. What if I just have Ring of Fire ADHD? I guess part of me hopes that I don't have bipolar disorder. Any thoughts? Thanks!
Avatar f tn Hello, in a way, ADHD is a problem of immaturity, because individuals with ADHD have a harder time doing the things we associate with maturity (such as tolerating boredom, persevering and being efficient). Young adults with ADHD are typically less 'mature' than their same aged peers, and it can be intensely frustrating for the person with the disorder and her loved ones (as you noted). Though it may take longer, most people with ADHD do find their niche.
Avatar m tn It certainly is worth your time to check out SIDS. You also asked about ADHD and here is a pretty good site (with symptoms) for that. Both this site and the one mentioned by specialmom have lists that can be printed out. Perhaps if you fiance looked at these it would be helpful? I should also add that a least part of what he is doing is kind of normal for 5 year old boys.

Avatar n tn She can be dramatic and is attentionAttention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) seeking. She has also told me on a couple of occasions that sometimes she gets really depressed. On the positive side she is pretty, outgoing, confident,funny, slim and seems to be quite popular. She talks to me about her friends/boyfriends, we go shopping together and sometimes cinema. Due to her compulsive lying I started to read her chat logs on a chatroom (MSN).
Avatar f tn My 8 year old son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 6 years old. After trying a few medications, his doctor chose Concerta as his daily medicine. It seemed to help a little with his so called "hyper" behavior. However, the doctor has increased the dosage a few times and my son is now taking 54mg.

Avatar n tn He's now undergoing developmental changes related to adolescence, and it could be that you are witnessing the symptoms of an emerging mood disorder (alongside his ADHD). Ask the clinician about this possibility. The chances of such an occurrence increase if there is a family history of mood disorder.
Avatar n tn Your description does not indicate ADHD. The anger, defiance and oppositional behavior are not typical of children who have ADHD alone. Rather, the behaviors you describe could be a normal spectrum child behavior problem, or symptoms of Disruptive Behavior Disorder or even a Mood Disorder. What is required is a systematic behavior management approach. It would be wise to consult with a pediatric mental health clinician to assess the situation and advise you.
Avatar f tn My son is 10 yrs old & has been diagnosed with ADHD since he was 6. He has been on Focalin, Adderall, Ritalin, Metadate & currently is taking Vyvanse. He takes 70 mg in am with 10 mg of Prozac & @ 3pm he takes 20 mg of Ritalin mainly so he can focus & concentrate on his homework because the Vyvanse wears off about that time. Then, about an hour before bedtime he takes 0.1 of Clonopine to help him sleep. If he doesn't take it then he is up all night.

Avatar n tn It has been my experince that anger often results from frustration. Kids with adhd are put in a classroom situation where they have to sit and pay attention, wait their turn and everything else that requires them to subdue their own hyperactivity. My son does well, behaviorally at school. However, when he gets home, its another issue. It seems that he takes out all his frustrations of the day on me, his dad and his siblings.
Avatar f tn Well my oldest son has ADHD but he never had anger issues. He is just really hyper and can't focus. The family counselor has not made that an option.

Avatar f tn She has a hard time dealing with her frustration and anger. One moment she can be fine and the next minute she could be destroying a room. I could tell at the age of 1 that something was different about her. She has always had anger issues and is always getting kicked out of school. No one really seems to have any answers for me. She has been on medications since she was 3 years old. We have tried every ADHD/ADD med that is out there nothing seems to work.
Avatar n tn Significantly lower levels of two omega-6 fatty acids and one omega-3 fatty acid (DHA) were found in the subjects with ADHD symptoms. In a 1995 study comparing plasma essential fatty acid levels in 53 boys with ADHD to a control group of 43 boys without ADHD, researchers found significantly lower levels of omega-3 fatty acids. In the April - May 1996 issue of Physiology & Behavior, Laura J.
Avatar m tn He has just had them repeated, but has only been with his teachers for 2 weeks so it's too early to report. He has symptoms of several disorders-ADHD, Aspergers, bi-polar, OCD, ODD. Our biggest problem is that everyone focuses on his school work where he is a straight A student and has attended the magnet school for the gifted. I am not at all concerned about his academic abilities. I am extremely concerned about his social skills.
Avatar n tn If you do have ADHD you won't get dependent on them. If you don't have ADHD, they can be seriously addicting. For that reason alone (plus a bunch or others), you need to see a doctor that can help you. I would try to find a psychologist or psychiatrist that specials in ADHD. Stay away from your general MD. The reason for that is that you want someone who can give you more than just meds.

1460021 tn?1445739558 So by January 2011 all i was taking was Xanax when i got anxiety. My doctor had suspected i had ADHD so i went to see a psychiatrist and my doctor was right. So I was put on (and am still on) 50mg of Dexamphetamine per day....My doctor thought that my moods could be stabilized better if i used Epilim in conjunction with the Dexamphetamine, so he put me on 1000mg per day (500mg morning...500mg night). So i have given Epilim a month...and i feel that it may not be right for me.
