Avatar m tn He has been on resperidone for 11/2 week showing only ADHD and ODD symptoms. He is driving us crazy but not showing any signs of anger or aggression. We then introduced ADHD medication, guanfacine, evening only. Second day he started exhibiting more aggressive, angry behavior. I plan to call the Doctor on Monday, but wanted to know if anyone else had similar situation?
883151 tn?1245518109 The doctor had at one point thought that he had a form of autism because of his behaviors. Then he started thinking ADHD. Now the doctor is going back and forth. He can't seem to determine if this is ADHD or autism. My son used to throw big fits where he would throw himself on the floor and bang his head on the floor if he didn't get what he wanted but the problem was that he wouldn't tell me what he wanted. He seemed to expect me to know without him having to say.
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 I myself at age 40 have tourette syndrome, however years ago, it was not diagnosed when my symptoms started around age 12, and I actually diagnosed myself as an adult when my daughter starting with tics at about age 2. She had all the same tics that you and others have mentioned. I took her at about age 6 to a neurologist and basically gave them my diagnosis in which they concurred was tourettes and she was on medication until about age 12.

Avatar f tn Laughing at parents when the child senses that the parent has "had it" - is not ADHD. It is more normally a sign that the child is winning and the parent is not. You can get some good quick information on what ADHD is by clicking on the blue Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder link at the top of this page. You might also want to post to the child behavior forum and ask the members for help with any specific things that your child is doing that is driving you nuts.
Avatar m tn It might also not be ADHD if the behaviors occur in the classroom but nowhere else. A child who shows some symptoms would not be diagnosed with ADHD if his or her schoolwork or friendships are not impaired by the behaviors.[30] Even if a child’s behavior seems like ADHD, it might not actually be ADHD; careful attention to the process of differential diagnosis is mandatory. Many other conditions and situations can trigger behavior that resembles ADHD.
Avatar n tn Specifically how we can get her to slow down and focus on the here and now. I don't believe she has AD or ADHD but I'm sure she shows similar signs. I would just like some advise on how to redirect her attention.
Avatar f tn I am new to this forum and came across it by hrs. of searching the net for info. My daughter is 14 and has always been a little "off beat". When she was 15 months old I thought her reactions were always extreme. Her tantrums were very explosive and she began "belly laughing" at a month or two old. She was either laughing as a toddler or throwing a tantrum, nothing in between. But she was otherwise very healthy and beautiful.
Avatar n tn ok, so i started taking ritilin when i was 9 yrs old, i am truly adhd and no that stuff does not slow me down, i laugh when i hear people say that narcotic speed like ritilin or adderal slows the truly adhd child down i am not laughing at you worried, just the idea there is also another popular idea that adhd meds prevent the adhd teen from seeking other drugs to self medicate, therefore it prevents an addiction, because we all know that many addicts, maybe all have adhd so this thread is a grea
Avatar n tn I went to a doctor becsaue people constantly tell me I have ADHD. The doctor said I laugh unconciously between my sentences and told me to see a psychiatrist. The psychatrist told me I have OCD. Here are some of the symptoms that I am aware of. I was put on celexa and I was told that the laughing went away, even though I didn't do anything consciencely to change my behavior. Here are some other symptoms. I am wondering if OCD is the correct diagnosis.
Avatar n tn The doctor on that site will give you honest opinion about what to do with his behavior. ADD/ADHD symptoms usually show up both at home and at school.
Avatar f tn I am also on Vyvanse for ADHD and that decreases my appetite. However, I have been on Yaz for a few months, and I swear it reverses all the positive effects of Vyvanse (more energy/decreased appetite) because I am so tired and hungry all the time. In the past I have tried Lo-Estrin, Nuva-Ring,& Ortho Tri Cyclen. Does anyone have any recommendations for the perfect pill--i.e.
292592 tn?1234143024 Finally at 5 we found a doctor that cares and said she thinks she most likely has Bi-polar disorder, and maybe ADHD. They put her on respidol, what a miracle, at first, also they put her on strattara. But now 5 months later it all has gotten just as bad again. She is perfect at school. She has been there for 2 months and she has a male teacher, I wonder if she is scared to do anything wrong! She has periods of staying up all night.
Avatar f tn What often happens, and this is proven thru research, is that someone w/a chemical inbalance disorder has a 60% higher chance at having another disorder. That being said, the symptoms of ADHD are very very very similiar to the manic symptoms of Bipolar Disorder. Thus, it being easy to miss one or the other when diagnosing someone. It's really nearly impossible for a doc to diagnos ADHD and BPD at the same time for the reason that the symptoms of the mania of BPD and ADHD are similiar.
Avatar f tn hitting herself in the head repeatedly when frustrated, shutting down completely when having her behavior corrected or when it's time to change tasks, hysterically laughing at inappropriate times in class. She's my oldest child and I didn't realize this behavior wasn't normal, and now I'm second guessing everything I've ever done as a parent. She is on a ketogenic diet to help with the Lyme, so she gets low carbs, no sugar or processed foods, no dyed foods, no grains.
Avatar n tn Now he is in 8th grade it is effecting his grades and he gets into trouble all the time because he is always talking, laughing, or just butting into others business. He is failing three subjects. We have worked and worked with him and tried everything we know. Last year we had him evaluated to take ritalin. They prescribed a low dosage at our disgression. We read and read up on the medicine and decided not to give it to him and try to manage it other ways.
Avatar f tn i told my mom i think i have bipolar disorder i named a bunch of symptoms to her and she ignored me i would love to get help but i don't know how to by myself.
Avatar n tn i call her down stairs and ask her what is her issue, she said she couldnt find her coat, i told her its because its on the chair.... tears gone all smiles she starts laughing.... all is well.... and its like that about everything.. She doesnt like to hug people, but if you dont ask her for a hug, she gets mad, like you dont care.... getting dressed is an issue everyday, because her colthes dont fit, they do fit but how it fits her varries on differant days....
Avatar f tn org/en/about/what/WWK1 I am also the CL on the ADHD forum. If you have any questions about ADHD please feel free to post here - http://www.medhelp.org/forums/ADD---ADHD/show/175 Hope this helps!
Avatar n tn I will not even discuss this with you--ALL children exhibit symptoms of ADHD before the age of 7...if you are still concerned about this when he's seven, we'll look at the possibility then." I had him evaluated by someone else who spent three hours talking to him and asking me questions about my pregnancy and his health history (as well as family health history). She told me that while he was too young to diagnose ADHD, she really did not think he will ever be diagnosed with it.
209987 tn?1451939065 I hear you. 6 weeks is nuts! Is it an ACL attachment? I think even with that a cast and crutches would let you move around. Try and find a orthopedic surgeon that works with athletes. They usually get them on their feet and moving as soon as possible. Worse case scenario - it's time to start scanning in all those family photos, converting those video tapes to digital, CD's, cassettes, records to ITunes, etc. Good luck, probably expect to see you posting a lot more on this forum!
Avatar f tn I feel really frustrated and scared myself of what is happening to my 8 yr old son. Until before the school started(3yrs ago) he was normal, happy, laughing kid and I was proud of him. Since he went to school, he started having major problems like reluctant to do classwork and homework, "forgetting" to bring his homework home majority of times. In the kindergarten his behavior was good.
Avatar n tn I'm not an expert, but I think the kids could be suffering from a lot of problems besides being bipolar. How much sleep do they get every night? The behaviors you describe are frequently symptoms of exhaustion and/or a lack of limits. They could also be symptoms of ADHD. And "normal" kids can be pretty darn weird (spend some time in an elementary school - it's quite amazing).
Avatar f tn Well, if you have had ADD since childhood, I can certainly understand why you might have developed Borderline Personality Disorder. I have read numerous posts on this forum over the years from females (and a few males) who had ADD as a kid and never got diagnosed. Usually because they were intelligent and did fairly well in school. They weren't snotty nosed little hyper boys running around and getting noticed. I don't know how old you are.
Avatar f tn my daughter exhibited many of these symptoms. adhd is sometimes co-existent with bp, and stimulant meds for adhd trigger mania in children who are also bp. his meds need to be re-evaluated immediately. and leta, you do need a support group. there are several on line at yahoo groups and i have found that just hearing that other children do these same things, despite parenting, has gone a long way toward keeping me sane. check it out.
Avatar n tn I have researched mental disabilities and disorders on my own for several years and did not think that ADHD coverd or defined all of the symptoms and behaviors I was seeing. Bipolar runs in my family, I thought that he might possiblly have some mood disorder issues, not certain if it was bipolar.
Avatar m tn Between now and then, I have been diagnosed with OCD, Social anxiety disorder, GAD, major depressive disorder, ADHD, and most recently, aspergers/high functioning autism. I have also been told by a highly rated local psychiatrist that I have the worst anxiety he has ever seen. No therapist or psychologist can help, some even say out loud that I “perplex” them or to look somewhere else.
Avatar n tn One doctor did come up with a couple of idea's but could not properly diagnose her for some reason, I think she was missing one of the symptoms and I don't remember what it was called. Now, at 4 yrs old she is almost potty trained and she can say more words. She still cannot hold a conversation or explain things, but she does point to things and name them. She walks but she doesn't really run and she is still wobbly.
