Avatar n tn Since there seems to be a few people from the medical field on this board, can anyone tell me the real deal on crack babies. I've searched the web, and there are so many conflicting points of view. The mother smoked alot of crack ($300-$400) a day for the first 7 months, and still might be. She also had no pre-natal care until her 7th month (went to the doctor once). If anyone has had any real life experience with this, please let me know. Also, please pray for this innocent child.
1216782 tn?1266509063 Kids are unique and have their own personalities and challenges that can have nothing to do with parenting. I do not know if your daughter has add/adhd. There may be some symptoms of it in your description but it is so hard to say with a child so young. In our area, doctors don't like to diagnose add/adhd until a child is at least 6 years old because of so much variability in young children. Impulse control, for example, is often lacking in the younger set.
Avatar f tn Please whatever you do, DO NOT allow your son to take any ADHD meds, now or ever. My son was diagnosed with ADHD at 5 years old, he is now 17, but not knowing anything about the meds or the label ADHD back then, I agreed with the school to put him on Adderall, biggest mistake I ever made. He was labeled from that day forward, put in special ed classes, and his it destroyed his self esteem for a long time. I took him off of the meds at age 8, but those 3 years did alot of damage.
Avatar f tn HELP I actually think that I might have been missed diagnosed as having anxiety---and have ADHD. I can be very hyper and not able to sit still, or lethargic and depressed the next hour? I can over organize my stuff for hours because I can't sit still. I work full time as a teacher and work a night part time job just so I am busy! I also wake up all hours of the night and my body is restless.
750172 tn?1256150676 I also have many friends whose doctors did the same. Thank goodness I wasn't addicted at this time, or my poot babies probably would't have their meds.
Avatar n tn I'm having withdrawal symptoms I didn't expect. Light headedness, the runs, blood pressure going up, and general fatigue. Lots of fatigue. And some irritability. I am hoping that these symptoms begin to decrease soon. Well, they have gotten better than it was in the first 2 days. I am still wondering how long I can expect to have these side effects of withdrawal?
Avatar n tn You were not specific on the symptoms you experience, but my guess is that when you exercise you don't drink water, or you sweat to excess. This will dehydrate you and you will lose salt and other minerals. You can experience shaking of the hands, visual disturbances, headaches, stomach aches, stitches in the sides, exhaustion, low grade temps and other unpleasant symptoms. If this is the case, try drinking a fluid that has minerals in it like Cytomax.
Avatar n tn it is either self-medicating because of a disorder such as add,adhd,bipolar or from some emotional pain,wounds,scars. as they use these issues get pushed further and further down into the soul,mind,heart,emotions and spirit. please have him seek counseling. yes he will test positive on monday, he should have already stopped using before today. have you sought out any counseling for yourself? do you attend church? i would recommend it to strength you and give you support.

Avatar f tn Though skilled parenting techniques do help improve some symptoms of ADHD, poor parenting skills are not believed to cause this disorder. So don't blame yourself.

535822 tn?1443980380 Experts speak of 5.4 million American children who display the symptoms typical of ADHD. Are you saying that this mental disorder is just an invention? Kagan: That's correct; it is an invention. Every child who's not doing well in school is sent to see a pediatrician, and the pediatrician says: "It's ADHD; here's Ritalin." In fact, 90 percent of these 5.4 million kids don't have an abnormal dopamine metabolism.
Avatar m tn after that over the next couple of months she put a blanket over my daughters head (she was 6 mo at the time) she would go into the babies room to do this. We installed a lock on the door. She tried to push my oldest down the basement stairs. She has bitten my 4 year old and has made him bleed more than once. She is physically abusive to her father and I. We always felt she didn't have empathy. We had put her into therapy 2 days a week and were still struggling with her behavior.

506438 tn?1210649293 His diagnosis is supposedly severe ADHD & ODD. I don't believe that's what he has because all the ADHD meds didn't work on him. In my opinion, if you have x disorder and take a med made to remedy that particular disorder, and the disorder is not remedied, than maybe you don't have x disorder after all. For example: Once upon a time, I started coughing so I took some cold & cough meds, The coughing continued and got worse, so I tried other cold and flu remedies.
Avatar f tn And as far everything else as far ADD, ADHD, and OCD. My fiancée has ADHD and OCD, I have ADD and OCD so the baby is going to end up with it either way. For the research I have been up to date on all weed studies from my doctor. She said you'll be recommended to stop at month 6 or 7 in pregnancy. Which I was planning to stop at 5 1/2 months.
Avatar f tn I really am curious about my question about how he was diagnosed for the ADHD. He certainly has many of the symptoms. I actually had kids diagnosed in 5th grade. They were intelligent, with sharp verbal parents, sailed through 3 grades, began to have problems with math in 4 grade, hit 5 grade and were pulling C's in several subjects and just falling apart. I knew they were intelligent from personal discussions with them and put in for testing.

Avatar n tn I will not even discuss this with you--ALL children exhibit symptoms of ADHD before the age of 7...if you are still concerned about this when he's seven, we'll look at the possibility then." I had him evaluated by someone else who spent three hours talking to him and asking me questions about my pregnancy and his health history (as well as family health history). She told me that while he was too young to diagnose ADHD, she really did not think he will ever be diagnosed with it.
Avatar f tn I know several women who give birth to healthy babies without doing the organic thing, but for me, it's more reassuring. I'm more comfortable going that way. I'm mainly doing the dairy and when we start to concieve or get pg, I will prob switch completely. It is your choice, and good luck with the decision.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with colitis even though my tests came back negative. (diagnosis based on symptoms) I ultimately suffered with panic attacks. This list goes on. I was tested for mono, AIDS, LUPUS, and host of other disorders. I was put on antibiotics many times. Everything was negative. FINALLY after I did some research, I found something about epstein barr and asked my doctor to run the test. He laughed at me and said "you don't have that.
303824 tn?1294875001 All the research I have seen shows that lack of sleep will make ADHD symptoms worse. The question is what is causing the lack of sleep? The reasons can be either physical (swollen adenoids, etc), ADHD related (its a common symptom), or environmental (his sleeping area and people in it). A lot of physical activity will help him. How old is he? I mean if you could get him on a swim team and exhaust him - you would notice a difference! Melatonin might help.
1074733 tn?1256235219 One of my sisters has bipolar disorder and is actually allergic to the cold. She is suffering from symptoms that I believe are endometrisosis, but she has no insurance and will not go to have the laparoscopy done and will not take the medication. The other sister has been on antidepressants for years for severe mood swings and depression and just had her entire thyroid removed at age 35 due to hyperthyroidism and multiple nodules that were increasing rapidly in number and size.
Avatar m tn com/journals/jama/fullarticle/194106 Soy is also very high in manganese, MUCH higher than breast milk, which may lead to neurological problems and ADHD . Soy infant formula is also high in aluminum, which can cause all sorts of problems.
Avatar n tn I'm not an expert, but I think the kids could be suffering from a lot of problems besides being bipolar. How much sleep do they get every night? The behaviors you describe are frequently symptoms of exhaustion and/or a lack of limits. They could also be symptoms of ADHD. And "normal" kids can be pretty darn weird (spend some time in an elementary school - it's quite amazing).
Avatar f tn Amphetamines control is temporary, but its damage will be felt for years to come, especially in the babies. They are not safe, and to deny knowing that is to live in a hole in the ground.
Avatar n tn We are in the process of adopting a 7 week old who tested positive for cocaine at birth. No withdrawal symptoms and they have no idea how much the birth mom drank during pregnancy.. 3 previous children all seem to be developing normally. She has used herion occasionally in the past. What do we need to know and look for in this child's development. We have had some say the baby could have ADD or behavioural problems later. Does anyone know for sure what to expect?
