Avatar n tn I have a 9 year old in my home that exhibits symptoms of sociopathic tendencies. I am very concerned and have had him seeing a MHMR for his problems for about 4 years now and is now getting worse all of a sudden. His psychiatrist said since he refused to take his medication anymore she will not prescribe him any.
Avatar m tn However, even with ADHD, his behavior needs to be modified. But you might want to look up the ADHD symptoms just in case. very good site here - http://www.help4adhd.org/en/about/what/WWK1 Finally, he apparently does need training in how to interact with kids. This means at parks he needs to be closely monitored and have immediate consequences when he hurts another child. Being curious, does he do these things when he is angry or just a part of normal play? Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn I agree with the new psychiatrist that I have all the symptoms of ADD or even ADHD, but I also have the symptoms of schizophrenia. So what is it? Or is it possible to have both? He wants to put me on a drug for ADD but from what I've read, those drugs can exacerbate schizphrenia symptoms.
Avatar f tn We have tried every ADHD/ADD med that is out there nothing seems to work. She is currently on Depakote, Seroquel, Clonodine, Focalin, and Zoloft. We have been to a neurologist and everything came back great. She was hospitalized in a psychiatric hospital for children and we did not get any answers there either. They think she may be bipolar but they say she is too young to diagnose.
Avatar m tn I would also recommend testing for Iron and Ferritin. These too can cause fatigue related symptoms. DOes your son have Hashimoto's? This is the most common cause of low thyroid in the western world. It is an autoimmune condition where the immune system thinks the thyroid gland is foreign and goes about trying to kill it, which then produces less and less thyroid hormone over time. Hashi's can be tested by getting and looking for TWO antibodies. The first is TPOab and the other is TGab.
Avatar n tn Smoking during pregnancy has been well documented as being associated with a higher prevalence of autism and other psychiatric symptoms (e.g., Rizwan et al., 2007). If there is a known mechanism, in this case smoking, for some environmental "trigger" to autism, it is not necessary (and perhaps self-serving) to suggest an unfounded mechanism such as vaccines. NECC has closely followed the autism-vaccine hypotheses and research related to it.
Avatar f tn The hardest to deal with is ADD/ADHD symptoms versus bipolar disorder. Unfortunatly children end up as guinea pigs. The reason being is that ADD/ADHD can mimic bipolar symptoms and vise versa. So, the situation you are in is quite normal for you and your son. If he does not take to these meds and she is not complient in working with the both of you I would recommend switching to a psychiatrist that will provide the services you need. I hope this helps a bit.
1574233 tn?1296116813 UPDATE: I have since learned that my children have ADHD and are receiving help...that makes a lot of sense. You just never think your kids would be part of a staggering statistic, but then again, why not, someone's got to account for those numbers they publish. I feel better knowing it wasn't anything i was doing wrong as a parent, and that my children are getting healthy and will go on to lead happy, successful lives.
Avatar n tn Have you tried Focalin for ADHD? My son was put on that first and it seemed to take the edge off his tantrums (by no means did they go away)! He had to be taken off them for a short period as we were in the middle of diagnosing Tourettes and wanted to make sure the meds weren't making the tics worse (they weren't). When we took him off the Focalin...OMG...the tantrums were 5-10 a day and 2 hour tantrums were not uncommon. With all the doors and windows closed...he could be heard from the street!
Avatar m tn This is relevant for other diseases as well – ADHD, schizophrenia, and a variety of different brain dysfunctions. As I mentioned, serotonin plays an important role for a variety of behaviors.” The mechanism described in the section above also likely plays a role in the regulation of autoimmune responses in general, by promoting the production of T regulatory cells. Hence it's highly advisable for anyone suffering from any autoimmune disorder to optimize your vitamin D level.
Avatar n tn I have been on Efexor since Nov2002 on 150mg initially and then 75mg + 2 Ritalin in the morning for depression and adult ADHD. When you tried to answer the question of why you are on them then maybe you had stabilied and were good on them. A bit like me, ran out of my script and thought let's see how I go not being on them even though I felt ok on them. My husband reckoned I lacked motivation on them. I certainly didn't expect withdrawals like this and I hope I am nearly over them.
20003388 tn?1515169640 My fatigue clouds my head. I can't think clearly or concentrate and it doesn't help that I have ADHD subtype I and OCD (which gets worse the more tired I am). They prescribed Provigil and it has been a godsend. I am awake during the day. I can think clearly and function. My ADHD is better and my OCD is better. I don't know what I would do if the Provigil didn't work. I'll have to do some more research and rethink my approach to tackle the anxiety.
Avatar f tn I'm wondering is whether there may be some kind of borderline (maybe subclinical) version of the disease that doesn't give such extreme symptoms as full blown celiac but does mean that gluten causes problems. Perhaps I just mean intolerance....it's a new subject for me I'm only starting to explore. I'm still resisting trialing a gluten free diet as it's such a radical step but my Endo did say it might be worth a try...
Avatar n tn Are we gonna make it like Rocky? Tingling 2 the Revenge? My suggestion on how to sleep....is already known! Ok, I don't want to transform all of you in a bunch of drug addicted, but have you tried a tranquillizer just once? Just to see whether your tingling diminishes the moment you calm down? @rnneeedshelp: as my "colleague" has written, you are anxious over the symptoms, not the opposite, and the same is for all of us.

Until I see hard core data proving it works for HCV then I stand by my "OPINION". Interesting that you say "show the proof" and advocate no discussion whatsoever on this topic. How exactly are any of us to prove or disprove if we're not even allowed to talk about it? And when I ask you for your reasons for disregarding Dr.
