Avatar f tn I agree with SM. This boy is in crisis and needs help. Do you have a self-paced graduation program in your school district? He needs to get back to regular classrooms or a special program for students who are at risk. He sounds depressed. What interventions have been done so far?

Avatar f tn Your assumption that children with this diagnosis have been abused is unfounded (although in rare cases this may be true). Note also that the diagnosis is often in error. Sleep apnea can produce the same symptoms as can a high sugar diet. And sometimes it is merely the result of poor parenting. True ADD,ADHD is much rarer than you think.
Avatar m tn “Middle Eastern characters in the film are not lent an ounce of humanity and watching this movie is provocative and unsafe to MENA and Muslim CollectiveLetter students who are too often reminded of how little the media and world values their lives. … The University of Michigan should not participate in further perpetuating these negative and misleading stereotypes.
Avatar f tn The problem arises if the depression and anxiety are caused by ADHD or ADD, as Zoloft will only mask the symptoms and not treat the cause.

Avatar m tn Most Canadians might be surprised to learn that medical students in Canada are routinely taught by faculty who have financial ties, and work in partnership, with drug companies. Conflict of interest (COI) policies at medical schools are important to ensure that students get an unbiased education based on the best available clinical evidence, free of industry-sponsored, commercially-driven information.
1294567 tn?1272390695 Increased blood pressure and heart rate, anxiety, and insomnia are a few of the many side effects of the drugs prescribed for ADHD. These can also be amplified in people that do not have ADHD but still take the drugs. People are not aware of the many side effects of these drugs, which is why I think a solution needs to be found to stop the exponential growth of cases, which lead to drug abuse because of more availability of the drugs.
Avatar f tn SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- When the Massachusetts Institute of Technology offered its first free online course this spring, Ashwith Rego jumped at the chance to learn from some of the world's leading researchers — without leaving his home in India.

327385 tn?1378360731 Your best bet is to try and find a peds doctor that specializes in ADD/ADHD. If she is found to have ADHD, so of the things she does might not go away, like the stealing. For me the last straw was when my daughter vandalized the neighbors boat, he wouldn't call the cops, so I did....she has stolen or vandalized a thing since. The only way I can describe my child with ADHD is like Pinocchio without the Jimmy Cricket (the little cricket telling him not to do bad things).

In the end, he has adhd, odd, and bipolar disorder which all run in the families. The hopes are that being caught at this age perhaps some of the curcuitry in his transmitters in his brain could be rewired and he may not need to be on meds the rest of his life. Life here is easier and he is doing better in school.
Avatar n tn I had a school counselor who would try to diagnose me with everything (maybe you have bpd, maybe you have OCD, maybe you have ADHD) and then when I told her the diagnosis I had from my doctor (PTSD, psychosis) then she would try to dismiss it and re-diagnose me. She would also tell other students my very specific problems and then get angry / yell at me when I told her I don't want medication. This has stopped a year ago, but I found out she does the exact same thing to other students.
Avatar m tn By the way a child who does not get enough sleep at night or one who is malnourished will have symptoms like ADHD or will have their ADHD symptoms worsen. But, if he started exhibiting this behavior around 3 or 4, that is probably not the case. Oh, thats a good point. What behavior was his grandmother talking about that he started showing at 3 or 4?

Avatar m tn By the way, I have seen several studies that show that sleep apnea can produce ADHD like symptoms. In fact, there have been several posters on here that have had sleep apnea, been treated and their daytime behaviors definitely changed.
