Avatar f tn Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, ADHD, is one of the most common mental disorders that develop in children. Children with ADHD have impaired functioning in multiple settings, including home, school, and in relationships with peers. If untreated, the disorder can have long-term adverse effects into adolescence and adulthood. Asperger's Disorder is a milder variant of Autistic Disorder.
Avatar n tn I took her to another doctor shortly after, who specialized in ADHD, who said that she definately had the behavior, but she was too young to diagnose. I left there at least feeling better about my parenting abilities. I was told to wait until she was in school. I happily awaited her Kindergarten, only to find out she was fine at school.
Avatar m tn Well, He is the same at school, and has had nto changes in his life...no move, no new baby, same preschool he has been at for this whole year. His teacher did however mention his anxiety level and how he seems extremly anxious alot of the day, almost worried about things going on aournd him. He has an appt with the behavorial dept. at childrens hospital in June, it s a re eval to hopefully get this situation under control.
Avatar f tn 1. Destructiveness may be seen in both disorders but differs in origin. Children who are ADHD often break things carelessly while playing (“non-angry destructiveness”), whereas the major destructiveness of children who are bipolar is not a result of carelessness but tends to occur in anger. Children who are bipolar may exhibit severe temper tantrums during which they release manic quantities of physical and emotional energy, sometimes with violence and physical property destruction. 2.
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 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.
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?
Avatar f tn Once that is stable, attention can then be focused on the psychological issues. One thing I would consider is reigning in the variety of medications in favor os focusing on seizure control. For that reason alone I would suggest reconsidering the prescription of any psychostimulamt while the seizure activity is still present. Likewise, it would be reasonable to suspend the Paxil for now. Perhaps too much (control of all the symptoms at once) is being attemtped and there is a need to simplify.
766032 tn?1281645081 whether it's cleaning a whole room, writing in a journal, or watering the plants. Working on my ADHD has helped calm the anxiety. For the rest of my anxiety I started reading self-help books and started to think positive thoughts...or at least learned how to control my thinking about negative things. There is no doubt that ADD/ADHD contributes to anxiety/depression. When you start messing up at work, or in your personal affairs because you can't focus...
Avatar n tn I read your comments in the teen health community. A lot of those things are somewhat common for someone who has ADHD and is extremely frustrated by that condition. How much do you know about ADHD and how it effects you? Unfortunately, Texas is not the greatest state for getting help in the schools. How long ago did you find out you had it? Ever go on meds or get behavioral modification help? I've got some sites that may be helpful for you if you are interested. Let me know.
Avatar m tn It could be that a lack of maturity in the youngest kids in the class is being misinterpreted as symptoms of a behavioral disorder," from - http://www.medscape.com/viewarticle/759900?src=nl_topic Now this doesn't mean that he doesn't have ADHD, but it is something to think about. Your doctor did the correct thing in doing the survey for both school and home. Perhaps the only place that did not follow the guidelines was the immediate prescription of medication.
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 On stadardized testing he is either on level or above level in every area. In 1st grade he scored on 7th grade 1st month level in science. It's almost like he obsesses over the work to get it done perfectly. His handwriting is impecable as he often erases and rewrites to ensure that it is perfect. The problem is that it is taking him so long to get stuff done that he is getting behind on other assignments.
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.
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.
16893937 tn?1452196056 The sudden onset and variety of symptoms suggests a cause, which could be a shift in his spine which causes the signals from his brain to his body to become scrambled. It's worth a try! http://icpa4kids.
918457 tn?1244649282 html Give them a call and ask if they specialize in ADHD. I would think even one who specializes in kids with ADHD would be better than one without that experience. I can also recommend several good sites with info on ADHD if you are interested. Best wishes.
Avatar n tn He sounds like a very sweet little guy. But I would be prepared for a diagnosis of ADHD, really. His symptoms sound classic, and for him to come to the attention of TWO separate preschools, with behaviors that are so far out of the norm that they call and tell you, that's pretty telling. My oldest was exactly like that, and although you cry a lot at first, he's a terrific guy. Sweet natured, smart, delightful.
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 n tn Clonidine and Tenex are both antihypertensives that, in small doses, tend to ameliorate some symptoms of ADHD, promote sleep, and lessen the frequency/intensity of anger. While Clonidine is most often prescribed in children for the latter two reasons, it is employed to treat ADHD when the stimulants are not successful or produce side effects that are not tolerable.
Avatar m tn Our son is doing really great and we have not had an outburst in school in over a year or more. He is 7 and in second grade. My suggestion is to look into sensory integration as well as adhd because the way you treat them is different. Sometimes both can exist as well and you want to make sure you handle any sensory issues a child has. Now my sensory kid has a little brother that is just a super energetic kid.
Avatar f tn thanks for the response. the more i look into this the more I think I agree with what you were saying about diagnosis in the 70's & 80's. That seems very true. I struggled ALL the way thru school. From 1st grade thru my BA degree!
883151 tn?1245518109 I think you have a couple of things going on here, but an autism spectrum disorder does not seem to be a likely culprit at all.
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.
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.
1216782 tn?1266509063 Even when you create the proper bedtime situation. I suspect that she has ADHD. It does run in my husband's side of the family.. and my younger half brother has it as well... he's in prison at the age of 18 for 8 years. It worries me... that she's three and I feel like no matter what I do I can't control any situation with her. I don't really know how to make anyone understand.
