Avatar f tn For now, medications should control the symptoms and psychosocial support can tame the manifestations of adhd as well. Regards and God bless...
1858622 tn?1319813203 My son is 12 and doesn't like large busy rooms, buildings or wide open spaces. He gets all out of sorts and cant sit still, wont eat or drink and feels overwhelmed, and stressed. My son is ADHD or maybe he just suffers from anxiety - I suppose in busy open area's I try my best to just clutch him and keep him close to me when he feels "weird" about such environments. I don't forces him to accept anything he doesn't want to accept.
Avatar f tn I have noticed that during the times he is w/out his medication, yes, being adhd, he is much more impulsive BUT i have also noticed the pre-puberty behaviours starting also. However, he tends to take those a step further. He will repeatedly come out of his room thrusting his croch back and forth and grabbing himself (with clothes on) with his 7 year old sister in the room. He talks about inappropriate body parts as if he is joking around.
Avatar f tn My 9 year old son has been on Concerta for about 3 years now and I am concerned whether it is true or a myth that ADD meds can stunt growth or slow down puberty process. Does anyone happen to know?
Avatar f tn In addition to ADHD something else may be going on. Puberty. I have noticed that when boys reach puberty they tend to settle down and become more focused. When girls reach puberty they often become emotionally rattled. This may temporarily affect their academic performance.
Avatar f tn He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was around 6. He has been A-B honor roll till the last 2 years. He has also been in gifted classes till he started middle school. He has seemed to have stopped mentally and has remained child like. Just not his age. I don't know what to do and I need help. He has been on vyvance for a while. His teachers have given up on him so I have no help there. Can someone give advice?
Avatar n tn She is in puberty. For some girls this is a very upsetting time of life. If her problem is recent I would assume it has to do with the hormonal changes taking place. If that is the case it is more likely that she needs patience and understanding rather than a medication that is used for ADHD, a condition she does not appear to have..

Another source which I think that you will find very interesting is this Utube video by a young lady with ADD in which she describes her situation and symptoms. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rybVzoKOwWA Personally, I have found that frustration was a key factor in helping to identify a person with ADD.
Avatar f tn s interfering with school work now and really bugging me. I checked out a list of ADHD symptoms from this website and found many that I could relate to.
Avatar f tn My 8yr old has been tested for CAH and we are awaiting results however his Paed Endo is 99% confident he has it, his bone age is 13 but he has not fully begun puberty yet. He also has been diagnosed with Asperger's & ADHD and I guess I have 2 questions. 1. How will the treatment affect his other conditions with regards to behaviour etc as treatment (as far as I know) is steroid based. 2.

207227 tn?1271416978 I have a medical background and very knowledgeable about things medical. My daughter has been showing symptoms that are half ADD/ADHD related and half Bipolar Child related. The symptoms are about half of each. I have taken her to a psychiatrist who said she MAY have a mood disporder (unipolar) and put her on Trileptyl. She had an allergic reaction to this and we had to stop it ASAP.
Avatar f tn I am not saying this is true in your case but i read an article the other day saying that over 50% of children diagnosed bipolar actually have severe ADHD and ODD and not bipolar, but the doctors wont put the child on the ADHD medications as that would make the bipolar symptoms worse but then the child doesn't respond well to the bipolar meds because that's not the real issue. Has your son been on a stimulant or ADHD medications before? What medication is he on at the moment?
Avatar f tn However, I took a lot of ADHD medicines when I was 16 like a load of medicines. Today I am 22 years old and still sound like a kid. I just want to know do I need to see any doctor? If so then what doctor should I consult?
Avatar f tn I agree with the previous poster that you should have a full work up done of your son, including hormones; my older son has Precious Puberty (early puberty), which made his emotional state very volatile. It helped him to know what was going on in side of him, and to know that puberty dose not lass forever and things would get better. Thankfully it was not caused by a tumor. There are a number of hormonal things that could cause behavioral issues, including; thyroid, pituitary, adrenal.
Avatar n tn he is laughing hysterically all the time, running, is violent and teachers are afraid of him. He is non-verbal and is a large boy for his age of 9 years and is entering puberty. The medicine does apparently help him sleep, but that is the only benefit we are now seeing. Thank you for your reply.

Avatar f tn When I try to force myself I get minor seizure like symptoms and my stress level goes way up above average even though I meditate on a regular basis I get small scale sicknesses due to my immunity going down also it seems to be getting worse as time progresses. I have lost motivation for leisure activities as well which especially gets me worried. I went to several doctors including therapists and it has them all stumped.
Avatar f tn Your daughter is at the age where puberty often "sets in". I also am wondering about ADD/ADHD? Has any person ever mentioned this possibility to you? Anyway, just a suggestion ...
Avatar n tn He was taking neurontin to help with his disrupted sleep pattern and Strattera for his ADHD. Since the onset of puberty last year we had to up his dosage for both but noticed he started to become depressed and was sleeping in every class. More recently he became severely depressed. We have since removed him from all medications because it was difficult to gauge which medication was causing the depression.
Avatar f tn Just wondering if anyone has Adhd as well as Chairi and if they take meds for it. I had my son whos 9yr at the peaditrican yesterday. My son has a dx of Autism and ADHD given before his Chairi and syringomyelia was discovered. He had decompression surgery last July. He had been taking adhd meds prior to surgery but stopped When he had the surgery. Pysch would not give them afer surgery in case they masked any neuro symtoms.
Avatar f tn //www.medhelp.org/forums/ADD---ADHD/show/175 I have several good links on ADHD and weight loss as it is such a common problem.
Avatar f tn s sydrome and is quite high functioning. However, he is very impulsive and has some issues associated with ADHD although they believe they are asperger's related. A doctor has prescribeed Tenex. I read some older postings, but was wondering what people felt about the drug? He is 4 and I am a little hesitant. I am also very new to all this. An y comments would help.
