Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms baby


Avatar f tn The fact he goes non stop would be a sign of ADHD (and also a crack baby). The fact that he is very smart would also indicate that he has learned how to manipulate you. Don't spank him. It won't work and only teaches him to hit other people when he is mad. Do obtain a copy of Lynn Clarks' book SOS: Help for Parents. I think it will help. Check the child behavior forum, there are a lot of parents having troubles with their 4/5 year olds and the advice given to them will also help you.
Avatar f tn I have heard of ADHD symptoms, I heard that it is much more easier to have fights if you have ADHD also ADHD kids act mostly, hyper, either violent(Not all), Overreacting over mainly little things. Sometimes they wonder in there own world. Having Aspergers can be different in many ways, Aspergers is when your child is having emotional problems maybe even getting embarrassed, shy, difficult education maybe even speech problems.
Avatar n tn This is not to say that, if she is diagnosed with ADHD, it explains all of her behavior, but may be a component of it. I would revisit the ADHD issue, and have her evaluated again, including collecting data via standardized checklists that are widely accepted as helping to establish this descriptive diagnosis. As an aside, it's not unusual for children who display ADHD to also have the ability to be attentive and focused in particular circumstances.
Avatar f tn Children with ADHD usually do not exhibit psychotic symptoms or reveal a loss of contact with reality, whereas children with bipolar disorder may exhibit gross distortions in the perception of reality or in the interpretation of emotional events. Bipolar symptoms in kids differs for symptoms of adults. These are basic common symptoms: During a time of mania, children and teens may: Feel irritable and throw violent temper tantrums. Seem extremely happy and have high energy levels.
Avatar f tn My son has been Diagnosed with ADHD and OCD. He has been on ADHD medication since he was 4 and now newly diagnosed with OCD. They think the Vyvanse is making the OCD sympotms worse. I can see this since we placed him on Zoloft for the OCD things have improved somewhat. I feel so bad for him becuase our personalities are so different. I am very melow and laid back but also Type A. He is constantly getting into trouble over little things at school almost daily.
284002 tn?1244551155 I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and after looking back on my life and seeing the impact it has had on me I'm very sad in fact I'm crying right now. I am in the process of finding an ADHD coach here in Boston. I started 200mg Provigil and felt a little "out of it" or "foggy" I had stopped and just got back on 100mg of Bupropion and .5 Clonopen. So I stopped the Provigil. Has anyone withADD - ADHD had any luck with any other medications or treatments?
Avatar f tn Been reading a lot about foods that irritate ADHD and help with the symptoms. Also have been seeing a lot of postings about supplements/vitamins to use to help control ADHD symptoms. My son is 6 and has ADHD. Anyone out there with successful foods/supplements/vitamins that help? Thoughts?

On clonadine for bed 1mg ritalin 10mg at 8am 10mg at 12pm clonapine .025 twice a day at 8am and bedtime, for seizures.
766032 tn?1281645081 I had facial ticks, trembling, sweating, memory issues, and a whole lot of other symptoms on the Effexor. Paxil gave me the same symptoms but my whole body would twitch and tick. The only one I had "some success" with was Lithium...but I had to go in for blood testing all the time. The Lithium by itself seemed to be ok...but when they added the Effexor it went from bad to horrific. I can't remember what ( if anything ) happened to me on the Lithium...I was 24 then...almost 45 now...
1455599 tn?1285511500 Many parents of ADHD kids have found that by having their child's tonsils and adenoids removed, their child's ADHD symptoms decreased significantly. Some of them, when tested a year after surgery, were no longer considered to have ADHD. I have a 3 1/2 year old who was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD in June of last year. After seeing info on the tonsil and adenoid thing and my husband having sleep apnea, I decided to have my son examined by an ENT.
Avatar n tn Diagnosis: ADHD/ODD, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar II, Learning Disability  Separation Anxiety, Deep depression – up and down (swings), eyelash pulling and pulling out hair without anti-depressant, it took 150mg of Zoloft to finally stop the habits and put a smile on his face.  Does not feel pain like other children – can run across rock beach with no shoes and feels nothing - no pain. Loves animals can get stung by bees and does not care.
Avatar n tn I do think that you need to see a child development peditrician or child psychiatrist that specializes in ADHD. Was he formally diagnosed with ADHD by a child psychologist or specialist, other than a pediatrician? Pediaticians are usually not qualified to eveluate ADHD. I am also surprised that your doctor would tell you to up the medication if the medication is causing tics.
Avatar f tn my husband who has ADHD--was a nightmare baby but couldn't keep still ever, according to his mother. Bounced his way out of 7 cribs according to her..but he was also extremely smart. i guess it might be possible, that it's ADHD or something else. but it's too early to tell.
16893937 tn?1452196056 Long story shorter- my son, now 5 years old, was the absolute easiest baby until he was between 2-3 years old. From there it has been insane... automatic shrieking when anything doesn’t go his way (from dropping something to not getting what he wants), trouble understanding things (almost like a loose connection somewhere), extremely defiant, loads of anxiety, poor/delayed gross & fine motor skills...
Avatar n tn 5 Kilos) with very low APGAR(3-7) ? My adoptive baby is now 6 years old and she has all the typical symptoms of the hiperactive child; her speech is unclear and often skips words. Most children in her K class write more clearly and are able to engage in a simple conversation.
Avatar m tn Finally, an FDA panel has agreed that food dyes are responsible for rotten behavior and even ADHD-like symptoms in at least some kids... but don't expect them to actually do anything about it. Instead of calling for warning labels or even an outright ban on artificial colors as some scientists and parents groups want, the panel called for more research. That's code for "we're getting uncomfortably close to upsetting our pals in the food industry, so let's stop right here.
918457 tn?1244649282 thank you my son is going to be 5 soon and has adhd i dont want to put him on med but after your note i think i well try it thank you he does the same things
Avatar n tn If you think that overall his functioing is enhanced by using only the Wellbutrin (which, by the way, can help w/ADHD symptoms as well as mood), it might be wise to start the school year on only the Wellbutrin and see how he does. Talk the idea over with his prescribing doctor.
Avatar n tn The teachers said he exhibited ADHD like symptoms, always running around, not focusing, even during free play. Impossible to settle/stop chatting during story time. That is 100% opposite of how he is at home and on playdates etc, so I thought it might be the school environment--huge class, 22 kids. I switched him to a smaller, more structured preschool. There, the teachers said he was doing alright, except that he was getting in other kids faces and annoying them.
Avatar f tn I am 35 yr old mother of 4 & I have always joked about having ADD/ADHD but lately it seems to become so apparent not only to me but where friends & even social aquaintences seem to ask if I have ADD/ADHD. After talking to some friends with ADD I am convinced that some sort of treatment/medication would greatly help my daily function. How do I begin to see about this? What kind of doctor do I see.
Avatar m tn We enroll him in a mainstream pre school program with Autistic, ADHD, and run of the mill four year olds. Now for the past 6 months he's learning, asking questions, tracing, and doing a lot of what he had problems with. However, he is very energetic and always trying to get attention. Whenever he does somthing wrong, we try to ignore him, you can see him looking for our response.
883151 tn?1245518109 The doctor had at one point thought that he had a form of autism because of his behaviors. Then he started thinking ADHD. Now the doctor is going back and forth. He can't seem to determine if this is ADHD or autism. My son used to throw big fits where he would throw himself on the floor and bang his head on the floor if he didn't get what he wanted but the problem was that he wouldn't tell me what he wanted. He seemed to expect me to know without him having to say.
184674 tn?1360864093 I found this list on quite a few websites about the symptoms of ADHD. I've put asterisks by the symptoms he has regularly.
Avatar f tn Some people have suggested ADHD for my son (he's only 3 and has not been fully evaluated yet because of his young age), he has problems with others, and acts out when he's in groups with other kids - so I'm not sure its ADHD, I think its more dealing with people. Does she play well at the park, or like at an art class or something with other kids. It would be interesting to see if she's okay in outside situations. Gradually bring her into larger groups and stuff.
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 Many other conditions and situations can trigger behavior that resembles ADHD.
Avatar f tn My sons both potty trained late---- one has sensory integration disorder (which is a nervous system delay very similar to add/adhd) and the other is just stubborn (he wanted to be the 'baby' he kept telling me). By the way, there are great advantages in a late potty trainer---- no long process, they really just start doing it. So, think about your child and what readiness signs HE is giving you. If he IS giving you the signs that he is ready to do it, then go to the next step.
Avatar m tn I guess the main reason I bring this up is that even though all the symptoms do point to ADHD, there are some things like Sensory Processing Disorder that have very similar symptoms and I would want somebody with experience to possibly rule other factors out. One of the things that I do find unusual is the length of time he crys. As an elementary school principal, we had kids that did cry in kindergarten. They usually stopped after a period of time. His crying is unusual.
