adhd

Avatar f tn Hi. My son is 10 years old with severe adhd. He has been on meds since he was 5. Recently we have had to change his meds for the first time in 5 yrs.(nightmare) I hadn't really thought about it til now but am really interested in some natural remedies for this. Even some over the counter meds would be fine. Does anyone have something they do for their child that works well?

Called yesterday to tell me that the result of this test are in, make appt to see them. But I was told that they would send them home...yeah cannot trust them.... anyone have this issue with there school???
Avatar f tn So now I will go with my own personal biases based on a lot of years working with kids with ADHD/ADD. Remember that this is my opinion. Your examples are very consistent with ADD. You can check this link on Medhelp - http://www.medhelp.org/medical-information/show/2157/Attention-deficit-hyperactivity-disorder-ADHD?page=1#sec_3761 - for symptoms or just google it.
Avatar f tn Many other conditions and situations can trigger behavior that resembles ADHD.
Avatar m tn SPD is a great web site. They talk about varous symptoms for you to look at. Examples of my son------- super picky eater and doesn't want to sit down during dinner. Will try to walk in a circle around the table instead. Also flat out refuses certain foods and will gag if forced. Or spit it out. Constant motion and driven in a way that seems intense.
Avatar f tn Your description does not offer strong indications of Oppositional Defiant Disorder. If the ADHD symptoms (particularly the impulsivity) are severe, and the stakes are high (e.g., being able to act successfully at school), you might well consider pharmacological treatment even though your daughter is young. Sure, it's best to hold medication in abeyance if possible with very young children.
3116129 tn?1341894137 My daughter is 8 years old and she was diagnosed with ADHD, December of last year, she is on medication daily and it helps with her Academics but not her social behavior; what I mean about social behavior is that she is a master manipulator and she shows empathy or sympathy when she hurts (punches,kicks,bites,etc..
Avatar n tn When at home, he will run around silly, headbutting the chair and jumping and climbing everything. This, to me sounds just like ADHD, and believe me, i've researched this well - but i dont think he has this. I've recently discovered that hes REALLY naughty when he has an empty tummy - if i provide a snack for his snack-time at pre-school, which he isnt too keen on and he doesnt eat, he will behave really badly.....
Avatar f tn Is there anyone out there that has a child that has PDD-NOS/ADHD/Mood Disorder-NOS/mild CP/Communications Disorder? Also taking meds to help with some of the aggression? Would be nice to not feel alone. Our son has spent almost half of his 6 year old life in and out of psychiatric hospitals to be monitored. Don't think they know anymore than we do. Nothing has changed. He takes Depakote for seizure/strattera for adhd and clonidine to help him sleep.
Avatar f tn Last week I went to the doctor advising them I think I have inattentive type ADHD due to symptoms I have. After doing a checksheet they agreed it definitely could be ADHD and possibly a minor case of narcelepsy. Which I am now prescribed Concerta 18mg. I have been on it for 6 days and I have not noticed one difference. I am still exhausted, tired and falling asleep at my desk. My main issue right now is the fatigue.
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 f tn Give this junk to a kid, and he could end up so nutritionally deficient that you're bound to see problems ranging from mood disorders to ADHD-like symptoms-- even if the foods they eat contain no dyes at all.
Avatar n tn I have put together a Health Page that you can access by clicking on the Health Page icon on the top right hand side of this forum page. This is taken from DSM IV for autism and people have added examples of behaviour that fits the criteria. You may find that helpful. Then you can google DSM IV for Aspergers and read the criteria for that.
Avatar f tn I posted this originally in the Neurology Forum, but decided maybe I should post i here as well, so here goes... My son is 10 years old, has been diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, ADHD and OCD. He has a lot of other symptoms going on over the past 2 years though that don't quite fit into any of the above conditions it seems.
Avatar n tn and shares most of the same symptoms and long term effects! While researching an answer to all of the awful symptoms I experienced during my Paxil withdrawal, I was unable to find any medical resources listing Paxil as a source of these particular symptoms we all experience. Guess where I kept finding my search results directing me to? Heroin withdrawal.
Avatar n tn Hi Sebastiandelacroix- I am having some of the same symptoms as you and am wondering what it is also. I am interested in knowing if you have some of the others I have had...along with the involuntary twitching in my legs and numbness and tingling in my arms and hands I have had fatigue and migraines. My doc put me on a heart medication for my migraines and they have subsided for the most part but now the twitching and arm/hand probs have arisen.
Avatar n tn I can be tired after 12 hours sleep! Can I be suffering symptoms from my thallassemia. Does any one else feel the same way that I do? This is a little bit hard for me, but I don't want to complain.
Avatar n tn It is possible that your son has both ADHD and anxiety issues. However, it is common today for medical personnel to misdiagnose a child because the behaviours for some anxiety disorders and ADD/ADHD are very similar. Since the medication for ADHD is not working, I wonder if this could be the problem in your son's situation - he suffers from anxiety but not ADD/ADHD. Usually, the medication for anxiety is one of the SSRI's - non-habit-forming medications.
Avatar f tn I can help with that if you give me some examples. You say your daughter has ADHD - so she has been professionally diagnosed? If so a 504 plan will help protect her rights. I highly suggest you get the book - "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley. (about 10 bucks on Amazon). It has a great section on 504 plans. Plus, it will answer and give you help on many of the questions you will have. It also has a great section on succeeding in school.
Avatar n tn Our son ,9 was diagnosed with environmental ADHD about 2 years ago. His symptoms seem to surface in large group environments like school. He is also socially anxious and has a low self esteem. After reducing food intolerances such a milk, caffeine etc. and fruit shakes with Omega 3, Vitamin B complexes etc. he stills needs more help. His pediatrician uses both concerta and adderall. we would like to also entertain strattera but may not be able to get it in Canada..
Avatar n tn mother gone on overnight business trip (development of serious cough), wearing new shoes to day care (stomach ache), farewell party for day care friend (temper tantrum and generally irritable), first day at day care after friend is gone (weekend-long stomach ache, fatigue and general irritability). He is often spiteful and defiant toward his mother, father and both sets of grandparents. He is bright, inquisitive, has strong verbal skills with weaker large motor coordination.
Avatar n tn Sometimes, it helps to make a list of your symptoms, and give examples of what is going on.
Avatar f tn My daughter is almost five. She goes from one obsession to another. Examples: mentions uncomfortable underwear for two months; making pony tail tight every time we make her for two months; then clearing her throat every 5 seconds; she baits her nails (this has been ongoing for a couple of years); very competitive. Otherwise she is a pretty healthy child, very happy, very smart (can read, learns very quickly, etc.
Avatar f tn each child or adult is different so the solution to their problems will vary you can begin by listing each childs symptoms, tackle the symptoms that cause the most problems my sons symptoms were a mile long, it took 3 years of behavioral modification, and we have that list down to a manageable amount hopefully with help your husband can go back to work and you can take a few months to help your children adjust to life with learning disibilities
676912 tn?1332816151 You haven't checked anything specifically manic or provided examples where it makes it sound more related to mania/hypomania than depression. Some examples would be nice.
Avatar n tn The person who diagnosed your daughter was he experienced only in ADHD? Have you looked at DSM IV for autism/aspergers/ADHD to see what the difference is in the criterias? If you google DSM IV you can look at the diagnostic criteria for the three different disorders. Start to keep a daily dairy and make notes of all her behaviours which you think are Aspergers or ADHD.
Avatar n tn I am not a doctor but I do have a master's degree in psychology, as well as a history of the same symptoms. Other members of my family have these symptoms, as well. What you are describing sounds similar to a disorder separate from ADHD that I studied in my post-graduate classes called Intermittent Explosive Disorder (IED).
Avatar m tn Typically hyper boys get noticed early in elementary school, but if you are intelligent - its easy to get overlooked. Lets start with ADHD symptoms. Here is a very straight forward list of symptoms - http://www.azcourts.gov/casa/Training/TrainingCourses/ADHDpg3.aspx Now here is a more involved list that looks specifically at teenagers. I think that some of the behavioral and friendship parts will seem familiar. http://www.netdoctor.co.uk/adhd/teenagerswithadhd.
