Avatar n tn My 7-year old son is taking Adderall for ADHD. We have had good results with the drug. However, sometimes he is still too hyper. My doctor prescribed him Mellaril. I have been searching the net and do not find this drug associated with ADHD. I can find general side effects, but cannot find them pertaining to children. I also want to know how safe this drug is and about the long term effects. My doctor says it is safe even for infants. My son was put on Clonidine first before Mellaril.
Avatar n tn I guess deep down I am paranoid about aspergers, even though he doesn't have any of the symptoms.... but since ADHD seems so out of the realm of possibility for him (considering how he is at home and everywhere else) my mind wanders too much....
Avatar n tn org/ 4 out of my 5 children got shots, the 5th got the HepB in hospital at 12 hours old, and was sick at 2weeks old, hospitalized at 5 weeks old for 6 days, but the drs all denied it was from the shot and would not report it. We refused to have him further exposed to shots, but his pediatrician kept after us and after us, making me wonder all the time, and making us feel like horrible parents.
Avatar f tn I believe that the Medicine isn't always the best way to go when you or your child have ADHD. i mean if the situation is to much for you to handle and the medicine is the best way for you handle yourself or the child then fine that is an exception. but i personally think that the medicine is the worst thing that you can you. i think you must learn how to cope with the disorder. Or at least work with it to learn how to handle it . Either or the medicine to me makes it worse.
Avatar n tn Quick background: I have ADHD and 3 children with ADHD. I have had TONS of experience with ADHD. The three children all have very different "manifestations" of ADHD symptoms. I have read, and researched, I have controlled their diets (no aritificials, etc.), and we seemed to have settled on the appropriate medications for each child, with occasional adjustments in dose. Until late last year.
750172 tn?1256150676 was the dosage? every 4 hours for 7 days?? that's a lot. ESPECIALLY for a child! and codeine for a 2 year old???? I just asked my fiance who's in dental school and has he never heard of a child getting codeine unless it was for extensive and painful surgery.....i'm not sure if it's common but it definately raises a bit of a red flag on this doctor in my opinion. was it REALLY necessary?? Motrin and some orajel wouldn't have done the trick..??? I'm sorry you guys are going through this!
Avatar f tn Texas Medicaid data obtained by The New York Times showed a record $96 million was spent last year on antipsychotic drugs for teenagers and children — including three unidentified infants who were given the drugs before their first birthdays. In addition, foster care children seem to be medicated more often, prompting a Senate panel in June to ask the Government Accountability Office to investigate such practices.
Avatar n tn ---- not a massive drug user (LOL - you'd have to know what I do to understand) and also am pretty level headed, logical. I have ADHD - but a great sense of humour... For me to be fatigued - I have to have been hit with a dump truck - 3 days of insomnia - and a 3 day marathon of the Young and the Restless. For the last 4-5 years I've felt exactly like that oh- ok - well - just "slowing down"... but on TX - was horribly, terribly fatigued. Like ZOMBIE.... like walking dead...
Avatar n tn Studies have shown that depression during pregnancy can cause serious problems both to the mother and developmentally for their offspring. If your depression is the result of having untreated ADHD and not a primary coexisting condition, you may be able to stop the antidepressant as well. I would ask about this. What to do instead? Well, many women report that the higher estrogen levels during pregnancy cause their symptoms to decrease significantly.
5078197 tn?1363341596 Agree with the above. Definitely has symptoms of ADHD, so I would start with that.
Avatar m tn 1186/1471-2431-10-63 There is no question about it… breast milk is by far the best nourishment for babies. For women who can not breastfeed, milk-based formula is a much better option than soy-based formula, which should only be used as a last resort. Bottom Line: There is significant evidence that soy-based infant formula can cause harm, both via its isoflavone content and its unnaturally high content of manganese and aluminum. http://trainorlab.ucdavis.
521840 tn?1348844371 The Journal of Pediatrics has published a new tool for screening one-year-olds for early signs of developmental delays--including symptoms and behaviors consistent with Autism. Autism is a developmental delay that impacts children's language, social functioning, play, learning, and behaviors. Since Autism varies so much in severity, clinicians refer to it as a 'spectrum disorder' (you may hear the term Autism and Autistic Spectrum Disorder used interchangeably in news stories).
354604 tn?1328555666 She also wanted her last hooray, so she planned a trip to Florida (basically in a wheelchair) for March 22nd. On March 19 I called her to ask how her most recent tests went, and she said they didn't find anything on the test, but they believe she had MS. I recalled an article a friend of mine e-mailed to me and I asked my sister if she drank diet soda? She told me that she did. As a matter of fact, she was getting ready to crack one open that moment.

Avatar n tn That is not the problem. He does not have any of the other symptoms for lactose intolerance. Does anyone have any advice? Thank you.
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.

1211076 tn?1303523040 The flu injection is a a no-no for me in my opinion. I had it for 7 years every year and every year ended up with Broncitis and Pneumonia. I havent had it for 12 years now and have not had Pneumonia or Broncitis. I would never touch it as I have Graves Disease and it is a well known fact that the Graves antibodies see any flu vaccine as 'foreign' and attack your body.
Avatar n tn Some children are immature and are not ready for preschool. Some children that stay at home and are only children dont always aquire the social skills needed .I guess my question is, if a child is having a speech delay is this always Autism? Also, what is the scale used to determine the problem (after age 3) becausethere are soooooooooooo many out there? (ex:DSM, Bayley, Achenbach ETc.

802547 tn?1237850517 ”) But this week I was filled with a renewed sense of urgency regarding the anti-vaccinationist movement for two reasons: 1) I received a personal email from a woman who is being treated with hostility by her peers for her pro-science views on vaccines and 2) a friend forwarded me a video of Jenny McCarthy speaking directly to moms, instructing them to avoid vaccinating their kids or giving them milk or wheat because of their supposed marijuana-like addictive properties.
607502 tn?1288251140 I have no idea how a diagnosis can even be made on a baby or 3 year old child - they cant form concepts properly so how could you do a proper differential diagnosis. And as for AD drugs for babies. Theres a few doctors who need to be struck off the rolls right there. Yeah i bet it calms the kid down, zombification tends to do that. I think giving AD or any psych drug to an infant falls into the category of child abuse, there is no way you can convince me a baby should be taking these drugs.
467707 tn?1270932240 I have a healthy 4 year old boy and a brand new baby boy and I'm curious about the different things that I can do to prevent autism for my baby (like vaccines and diet and stuff)... any truth to it? I welcome any and all your feedback!
Avatar f tn Candida has been found to produce 79 distinct toxins. These candida toxins are also suggested to be responsible for many of the symptoms that Candida sufferers have as well as the "candida die off reaction." Candida has also been suggested to play a part in creating what is called a "leaky gut," an unfavorable increase in intestinal permeability. Undigested food particles and toxins are allowed to pass directly into the body creating a host of problems.
1219510 tn?1266713553 I'm waiting for a doctor to finally do some research on this, It seems to be more apparent in people with ADHD/Depression/OCD and so on. Sadly, It ***** to say that I do the same thing... but here's the thing; when I take my prescribed Adderall, I stop doing that, and without thinking I can take full complete breaths without holding them, or feeling the need to.
Avatar n tn 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.
