Avatar m tn It is very common for people with ADHD to have depression and to be angry for that matter. There are clear differences between bipolar and depression or adhd anger. The following is for children, but it is also true for adults. "One diagnostic fallacy is to assume that these children have bipolar disorder. Dr. Dimitri and Ms. Janice Papolos recently devoted a full book to the disorder (The Bipolar Child, 1999).
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 n tn Hi there I'm really worried about my little boy having adhd he's nearly 2 years old which I know is young to reconize symptoms of his age but his behavour is worrisome.if he can't do something straight away he gets angry and will hit,head butt anything near him.if i tell him no for anything he responseds in the same way but with me.his anger outbursts are very extreme considering he's from a calm household.
Avatar m tn I'd first take a look at when he gets angry and what is triggering it. For example, Ritalin does leave the system (depending on the dose) fairly quickly - hence, the question about when the anger happens. Margypops make a good point about the side effects. The fact that apparently you weren't aware of it suggests that you need more information about ADHD. I suggest you buy the book (its cheap through Amazon), "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.
Avatar n tn Oppositional Defiant Disorder is not usually seen alongside ADHD but, at the same time, ADHD often is associated with other conditions such as ODD. With most children and teens who display ODD, the main symptom that might be targeted with medication is anger. Now, the Wellbutrin she receives is an antidepressant that can be useful in treating anger.
Avatar f tn My son is 9-years-old and has been diagnosed with ADHD. He still has trouble controlling his anger. If asked he knows the right way to react, but fails to do so. He will sream and cry for as much as asn hour or more. I have tried to get help from the schools and outside resources. He currently takes vyvanse which has helped with the ADHD. I just dont know what to do anymore to help him. My next step is to have him see a psychiatrist. If that doesnt work i dont know what else to do.
Avatar n tn I have a 9 year old almost 10 who experiences sudden outbursts of anger like a volcano. He runs from authorities when they request they go with them, but this anger seems to dissipate anywhere from 5-15 minutes after the episode. Most of the time this behavior is seen at school. He has been suspended several times from 4th grade because of it. He will just suddenly blow up at another student for something that he didn't like and will sometimes lash out at them.

Avatar f tn Can a child show more ADDHD/Bi-Polar symptoms (anger, anxiety, defiance) when they get hungry? My son does not eat large meals, but rather picks most of the day. I have never seen anything on this side of the topic.

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?
Avatar f tn My daughter has ADHD and I have her on Strattera with no side effects. The stimulant meds for adhd run a HIGH risk of depression and anger. If it was me I would change meds which is probably the cause of those serious side effects. I tried her once on Adderall and it made her depressed, angry and emotionally a wreck. Don't let them pop more drugs on her when it is probably due to the meds she is on. Thyroid patients metabolize drugs differently than others to begin with.
Avatar n tn Clonidine and Tenex are both antihypertensives that, in small doses, tend to ameliorate some symptoms of ADHD, promote sleep, and lessen the frequency/intensity of anger. While Clonidine is most often prescribed in children for the latter two reasons, it is employed to treat ADHD when the stimulants are not successful or produce side effects that are not tolerable.

Avatar f tn org/en/treatment/scales) Finally he may not (as I have said) have ADHD or ADD, but it would be nice to know. Here is info on symptoms of ADHD. See what you think. And remember he could also have ADD which is ADHD, but without the hyperactivity. The link is - http://www.help4adhd.
1920054 tn?1431630591 ADHD is extremely frustrating, when the meds are working, the frustrations are less and the anger goes down a lot. Also, since kids with ADHD are very impulsive - anger is easy to come by. Here again, the meds tend to help deal with the impulsiveness. And, here again, by talking with your doc and increasing the meds, or trying a different med. Concerta is a methylphenidate which is typically used for ADD.
Avatar n tn I did not experience any of the flu like symtoms, but I distinctly noticed an increase in irritation, anger, and had one rage episode the second week. Suppressed anger, resentment, and bitterness was an area I started dealing with from the beginning of therapy and haven't had that kind of anger for a long time, is this normal.
