671512 tn?1226563206 I made a recommendation for a "Behavioral Tracker" a couple of months ago, and Med Help replied that they would "add it to their list of to-do's". (I had asked specifically about ADD/ADHD, Asperger's, and Autism behaviors. Perhaps after reading your post, MedHelp will consider including symptoms of ODD on the tracker as well.) While that may be available sometime in the future, MedHelp currently has a mood tracker that might be helpful to you.
Avatar n tn ) checklists that contain the 18 behavioral criteria designated in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental and Emotional Disorders (ADHD is classified as one sub-type of Disruptive Behavior Disorders) to diagnose ADHD. It is not a test per se, but a list of symptoms. Such lists can be helpful for parents and teachers to quantify what they are observing in the child.
Avatar n tn I was wondering if any of any other parents out there have kids with ADHD who also exhibit tourette's-like symptoms or have been diagnosed with tourette's? My son is almost 6 and we're quite sure he has ADHD (although he's still on the waiting list for the behavioral specialist).. he's very hyperactive, fidgetty, doesn't complete a task the 1st time you ask him, and his having a lot of trouble behaviorly in school ...
Avatar f tn old son started focalin 5 days ago and has since started wetting his pants and blinking his eyes. I looked for a list of tics and I was amazed at the movements that fall under tics. He has been on Adderal, Metadate, and Ritalin so far. I was very unaware of what behaviors are considered tics so I am not sure which behaviors were present with which meds. He has seen many Drs. and no one has ever mentioned tics. I figured I would post a list for others to view.
Avatar n tn I would check out this link. It covers both ADD and ADHD. Read the symptoms for both of the links in green at the top of the page by clicking on them. The site is - If it feels possible that you have one or the other, then the next thing is to find a doctor. The link also has on the right side ways to do this. If you are enrolled in a college I could also talk with either your counselor or the medical staff.
Avatar f tn Well, you certainly do exhibit a lot of the symptoms. And your reaction to coffee also fits. It is important to know what is going on because there is a lot that can be done to help you if it is a form of ADHD. It is also pretty common for people with undiagnosed ADHD to start getting frustrated with school work or to be getting depressed or have ever increasing anxiety. If any of that is going on with you, it is even more important to get diagnosed.
793266 tn?1275479663 Today I started adding fish oil and a B-complex vitamin for the adhd symptoms, and vitamin D for thyroid/mood. I am taking fish oil at dinner, B at all meals, and D at one meal. I am hoping these will increase energy, memory, and decrease AdHd symptoms and mood swings.

Avatar n tn For example, the symptoms you detail in relation to PDD are really not so typical of PDD, but rather of some type of developmental lag in fine motor skills. The symptoms you list in relation to Bipolar Disorder may well be manifestations of ADHD. If ADHD is confirmed, and there are no co-morbid conditions, and there are no contraindications, the first-line medication is usually Methylphenidate (brand name Ritalin) at a dose of 5 mg two-three times each day.

Avatar f tn my 5 year old son is diagnosed with ADHD, disruptive behavior and a mood disorder, and possibly depression and anxiety. he has been prescribed ritalin, medidate, depakote, and zoloft. all together. That seems to be alot of medication for a small young child. Im very worried for him, is this safe for him?
Avatar f tn However, he is costantly on the go and i have read symptoms for hyperactiviy and out of the list, he has some of the symptoms. I just wonder if ADHD was a broad accronym to incorporate everything related to behavior problems.
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.
653496 tn?1238313609 September 19th was when this was started from my other account. I'm just copying and pasting my info. :) Im basically doing this so I'll have a record on how I feel/felt.. and if it turns out to be AF or pregnancy. I started cramping 3 days ago with the tiny cramps. Just noticeable ones. That would have set it to a week and 2 days before AF is supposed to be here. Some breast tenderness but not bad. Few times they felt like they burned a little. My breasts feel fuller.

Avatar f tn Thank you for your input. We are on a waiting list to see a specialist. Unfortunately, it's a very long list. The school is also concerned, but we have not been able to speed things up. I don't recall hearing of a child this age doing this. She is an emotional 12 year old. Perhaps this has to do with our moving out of province away from family. It's the only other thing I can think of, as she did not always chew on wood. If so, I 'm not sure how to help her.
5856747 tn?1403348682 ADHD is diagnosed on the bases of the child’s behaviour alone. This may be done using the International Classification of Diseases or ICD-10. There are no other tests to confirm the diagnosis and this again may cause difficulty in accepting ADHD as a disorder. Features of ADHD behaviour will include: • Inattention to instructions. • Inability to learn or retain. • Inability to stay with a specific task or to complete it. • Inability to hold attention to what is being said to them.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. 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.
