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 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.

521840 tn?1348840771 These same childhood symptoms take on different forms in adults with ADHD. For example, most adults with ADHD are not floridly hyperactive. Instead, an adult is more likely to report ‘inner restlessness’ or problems with impulsivity. Symptoms of ADHD impact important adult tasks such as remembering to pay the mortgage, paying attention while driving, or managing your children’s schedules.
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.
Avatar m tn Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years. Studies have shown that approximately 15 percent of the children on ADHD drugs will threaten, attempt, or actually commit suicide by the age of 18.
Avatar f tn In conclusion, there are not enough data on use of stimulant medications in pregnancy to allow definitive conclusions about their reproductive safety. Available data for Amphetamines suggest no increase in the risk of malformation when used at therapeutic doses, while infants might have slightly lower birth weights. Human data on Methylphenidate is limited and we cannot rule out the risk of malformation given the available information.

5856747 tn?1403348682 It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood. For the rest their behaviour will modify as they grow into adulthood. Controversy: In the recent past and even today ADHA struggles to be accepted as a “disorder” as distinct form behaviour or “boldness”.

Avatar f tn "Treatment starts with controlling adhd symptoms." When a childs adhd symptoms "are reduced there usually is an improvement in ODD symptoms. Stimulant medications have been shown to decrease adhd symptoms, as well as those of ODD, by up to 50%." In my opinion, the doctors have been not dealing with the cause of her ODD. Nothing you have stated is really recommended to treat adhd. My recommendation for a good adhd medication starts with a good doctor.
Avatar f tn Kids are all different, extra attention does a lot for them, extra resourses, I personaly think that ADHD is a name we are giving to a human brain development we do not understand yet.

The solution was simple: Just increase the doses since such individuals most likely have developed a tolerance to CNS stimulants.

However, symptoms of inattention or restlessness are common in many learning and emotional problems such as learning disabilities, anxiety, moodiness, and motivational issues.
Avatar m tn My 3 year old son started making a facial grimace a few days ago along with moving his neck some while making the face, he has also has become more agitated recently with changing activities, and more energetic and hyper.

Avatar m tn The quote you cited has to do with infants who were fed pre-chewed food for lengthy periods of time from their infected mothers. Infants do not have mature immune systems, which would place them at risk in this kind of situation.
