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).

Avatar n tn The biggest complaints of people with ADHD are a lack of concentration, and the inability to sit still-fidgeting.
1543592 tn?1293386614 If you were diagnosed with ADHD then it is no surprise that you are noticing symptoms of a similar nature-- nervousness, mood swings, compulsiveness, obsessiveness, etc. I want to clarify that ADHD cannot technically be "diagnosed" because it is not an illness or medical issue any more than anxiety is. Both are better defined as tendencies or habits in attempt to control things that you feel you cannot. ADHD can most certainly be controlled or "let go" without medication.
Avatar n tn Does he have other OCD symptoms? My niece, and two of my kids have this and ADHD. It is believed to be a seratonin issue (brain chemical) and often hereditary. He should be put on one of the seratonin meds to relieve these symtoms. These are anxiety meds like Zoloft. My daughters symptoms went away quickly my son need a pretty high dose because his symptoms were more severe. The tricky part in this is the ADHD because the ADHD meds can make OCD symtoms worse! They are stimulants.

Avatar n tn Your son may well display ADHD, but it is important to arrange a thorough evaluation and not rush too quickly to the diagnosis. The on-line surveys can be useful tools to see if a person might display symptoms typical of ADHD, but a thorough assessment will consider a child's medical history, family history, current functioning at home and in school, possible alternative explanations for the symptoms identified on the surveys, etc.
Avatar n tn Quick background: I have ADHD and 3 children with ADHD. I have had TONS of experience with ADHD. The three children all have very different "manifestations" of ADHD symptoms. I have read, and researched, I have controlled their diets (no aritificials, etc.), and we seemed to have settled on the appropriate medications for each child, with occasional adjustments in dose. Until late last year.
Avatar f tn However, this current ADHD doctor did a bunch of tests and said his scores on the tests indicate my son does have a severe problem with Auditory and Visual Processing. The doctor said that the ADHD meds should hopefully take care of this. What do you think? My son is a very nice boy and yes he gets upset but this anger he is displaying while the Concerta is wearing off is uncharacteristic. Thank you in advance for any suggestions.
Avatar n tn m of the opinion (based on the literature about how health care providers make errors) that diagnosing a person with a neurological disorder like ADHD should be done with both a thorough diagnostic interview and some objective data collection. The symptoms of ADHD can occur for many reasons, and ADHD in adults is highly likely to co-occur with anxiety and depression.
Avatar n tn I am teacher's mother. 61 and ADHD. I benefit from medication but can't afford it now. She is also ADHD. There is a theory that this situation has a connection with L-dopa. My mother had Parkinson's, which is an L-dopa situation. I know others who had Parkinson's parents and ADHD children. More than a coincidence, I think. So, very much a biological situation. And genetic.
Avatar n tn 1. In children, many symptoms overlap and are common among a great number of diagnoses (including Bipolar, SID, ADHD, normal development, non-verbal learning disability, and so on). 2. Is it possible that they are recommending these diagnoses as part of their "differential diagnosis" (aka - trying to figure out just what is going on)? As a therapist, and parent first, I would be quite cautious about how to take this news.
Avatar f tn I don't know much about Risperdal. It's not typically used to tread ADD/ADHD. I'm pretty sure it's not FDA approved for ADHD. It may have been prescribed to treat some behavioral problems, which may or may not have been caused by ADHD. It's classified as an anti-psychotic and is a tranquilizer. If your nephew's only diagnosis is ADHD I'm shocked that this drug was used at all. I urge you to get the opinion of a different psychiatrist.
Avatar m tn The type and severity of symptoms vary greatly among people with ADHD. The severity of symptoms depends on the degree of abnormality in the brain, the presence of related conditions, and the individual's environment and response to that environment.The diagnostic criteria for ADHD are outlined in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Health, 5th ed. (DSM-V 2013) by the American Psychiatric Association.
Avatar m tn With age, a decrease in observable symptoms of ADHD seems to occur. Adults with ADHD have a longer delay before refocusing when their attention is misdirected, and they have difficulty switching tasks. The hyperactivity and impulsivity of adult ADHD are often more subtle than those symptoms types in children.
Avatar f tn Parenting with consistent discipline and support can help prevent over-diagnosis of ADHD in children. Sometimes, people think their child is ADHD when the child is still very young, under 5, and shows some symptoms. The problem with that is young children are still developing at very different rates and maturity levels vary greatly.
Avatar m tn I always had trouble wrting essays,my mind would not work and cause distress,and also when had to read a book.Is it possible that untreated ADHD got me into this mess,and if indeed i do have ADHD and treat it with medication, will it improve my situation(i will be less anxious in certain conditions because my mind would slow down and think more organised,i would be less agitated,less impulsive,i would procrastinate less,improve my depression)?
Avatar m tn An estimated one-third of children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) progress satisfactorily into their adult years, while another one-third continue to experience some problems, and the final one-third continue to experience and often develop significant problems. Many of these negative outcomes are linked to continued, severe, and persistent ADHD symptoms.
Avatar m tn Having trouble sleeping, impulsiveness, losing things, lack of organization, not remembering things - are all pretty classical signs of ADHD. Of course, the whole relationship with the parents thing if caused by you constantly getting into trouble (and negative attention in elementary school), is also a sign of ADHD.
