Avatar f tn The scores on his 2nd grade achievement test places his intellectual ability at mid year 3rd grade. DO my son have symptoms of ADD-ADHD. Should I retain my son in the second grade to improve on the weakness stated by his teacher.

Avatar f tn i would like anybody who has a 9 year old son or daughter to tell me what are the symptoms of ADHD before i take my nephew to a pdoc...........
Avatar n tn Hi Are there any other reasons for missing a period,Im a week late anyway-any other reasons apart from pregnancy?Ive been eating normally I think,and I think Im as stressed as this usually anyway.So..any ideas?
Avatar n tn I think checklists are fine as a supplement to a thorough study of the child's cognitive functioning and achievement, because symptoms of ADHD can occur for other reasons besides ADHD. Having a psychologist do a thorough assessment and consult with the pediatrician will give you the information you need to intervene effectively.
284002 tn?1244551155 I was recently diagnosed with ADHD and after looking back on my life and seeing the impact it has had on me I'm very sad in fact I'm crying right now. I am in the process of finding an ADHD coach here in Boston. I started 200mg Provigil and felt a little "out of it" or "foggy" I had stopped and just got back on 100mg of Bupropion and .5 Clonopen. So I stopped the Provigil. Has anyone withADD - ADHD had any luck with any other medications or treatments?
Avatar f tn Hello, in a way, ADHD is a problem of immaturity, because individuals with ADHD have a harder time doing the things we associate with maturity (such as tolerating boredom, persevering and being efficient). Young adults with ADHD are typically less 'mature' than their same aged peers, and it can be intensely frustrating for the person with the disorder and her loved ones (as you noted). Though it may take longer, most people with ADHD do find their niche.
707438 tn?1240963240 It's much more logical to assume that we have different levels of this disorder and some of us are able, for what ever reasons, to learn to control some of the symptoms. I do see the creative side of ADHD - it's very evident in my own family but I do want to say that there is an alarming number of people in the prison population who test positive for it - as high as 30%. I have also experienced this side firsthand. Best of luck.
Avatar f tn My nine yr old son has adhd and odd....opposional defiant disorder. He is on 4 differant medicatind, reperidone,guaficine,danphetimine salt combo and fluoxotine. He has to take thes SEVERAL times a day. It doesn't seem to help. He is extremly disrespectful, rude ,yellls at me my b.f. will not do any thing he is asked to do unless you ask him 500 times. And yes his dad also is not there. Bbxx I read your comments so you might be able to help.
1453183 tn?1287852619 My son has been diagnosed with having ADD/ADHD and was put on Atterall and then a year ago the doctors took him off the medication and his schooling has suffered because of it. My question is would home schooling him help him or hurt him in anyway? And What else can I do to teach my child how to help control his symptoms?
Avatar f tn have a hyperactive 5 and a half yr. old boy. Hyper since birth.Changing diapers was difficult. I am used to this and it has gotten a bit easier to manage since then. Alot of his behavior seems like ADHD,the type that is hyper but "takes everything in". He never liked loud music,covers his ears. And also complained once of lights being too bright at Gymnastics class (which he DID NOT LIKE). He will interact with other children and isn't shy once he gets comfortable.
2110632 tn?1334189982 And, many times caused by the ADHD. Your symptoms at home are certainly consistent with ADHD or ADD. But, you should also had problems at school. But, in school, how far did you get and what was your GPA. I have seen many adult posts where they were intelligent enough to get through high school, but had a lot more problems in college.
Avatar f tn I am going to discuss with my Dr. about getting ADD/ADHD medication, how do I ensure him that it is for the right reasons and not to abuse it like a lot of people do these days. I am not on any other medications and only go to the Dr. if I desperatly need too. I hate to take pills but I am trying to be the best person that I can, which means medication. I am a mother, a wife and a co-worker. I have a lot on my plates as many of us do.
Avatar n tn There are lots of reasons why kids misbehave, but I am curious who gave the ADHD/Bipolar diagnosis. The two often coexist and the symptoms you describe sound like both, although a thorough assessment of all of his behavior and his developmental history is necessary to accurately diagnose.
571167 tn?1223218065 old sounds reasonable enough because when children actually do have ADD or ADHD problems aren't always noticed until children start school for obvious reasons. Does he have similar issues at home? If you are already involved in treatment of some type through children's hospital clinic, then I would address your concerns with them and see what they say.
Avatar m tn I would ask the doctors to send your son for an egg. and I also wouldn't every put on medicines for add or adhd.the side effects are worse then deal what you are with right now. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn I'm curious, I keep seeing answers saying more to ADHD when involving vilence and all. Where are we getting at with mood disorders? My son is currently in partial hospitilation and it's been said that even doctor is baffled by his behavior. It's almost like he is immune to meds as he still has episodes with us. I'm not confident he'll do well once back in school and I sure don't know what else to do short of sending him somewhere.
Avatar n tn I have ADHD also and I day dreamed most of my early child hood education. We never Knew about adhd much. All I know is all my kids have ADHD and they are older and gone. My youngest son has had the most troulble with the meds. My older son is now 20 and he was taken off of Adrall. I was told Concerta was safe, a slow release. He now does things he never did before. The tics he developed is horriable. His life will never be normal with out help from above. Thank you for your post.
521840 tn?1348844371 The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association contains three subtypes of ADHD, including Hyperactive, Inattentive, and Combined. ADHD is a constellation of symptoms and behaviors that cannot be explained by any other cause (such as anxiety, learning disability, or a thyroid disorder). Contrary to what many people assume, ADHD is not just having a short attention span.

Avatar f tn Here are some reasons why. Anxiety is a very common co-disorder of ADHD. There are two types of anxiety. Cognitive or thinking (social anxiety) and Feeling anxiety. Your doc is probably correct on you having social anxiety. Where he is way off the mark and the reason to find another doc is that if you treat social anxiety with anti-depressants you make ADHD worse.
Avatar n tn I take abilify and citalopram for the schizoaffective disorder and vyvanse for the adhd symptoms. I find that since i have been given adhd meds, my condition has stabilized completely. I was not well on the schizoaffective meds alone. i still had problems concentrating and with focus .As well as social problems and listening to others and paying attention.
Avatar n tn While Clonidine is most often prescribed in children for the latter two reasons, it is employed to treat ADHD when the stimulants are not successful or produce side effects that are not tolerable.
Avatar m tn Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.
Avatar n tn The teachers said he exhibited ADHD like symptoms, always running around, not focusing, even during free play. Impossible to settle/stop chatting during story time. That is 100% opposite of how he is at home and on playdates etc, so I thought it might be the school environment--huge class, 22 kids. I switched him to a smaller, more structured preschool. There, the teachers said he was doing alright, except that he was getting in other kids faces and annoying them.
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 m tn I have Bad ADHD and Bi-Polar and had unnacceptable side effects from Strattera, Paxil, Trileptal, Lamictal, Abilify, Lexapro, and Focalin. I have a low tolerance for drugs, but seem to be able to quit cold turkey with no issues from addicted drugs. Past suicidal ideation is an issue. Everytime I take dextramathoraphine for a cough, I seem to be a little happier, can focus on work better, and don't spill my guts to all my co-workers.
184674 tn?1360864093 I found this list on quite a few websites about the symptoms of ADHD. I've put asterisks by the symptoms he has regularly.
Avatar f tn they also eliminate harmful food substances like artificial additives, gluten and wheat, which are known to trigger ADHD symptoms. Going on an ADHD diet will mean having to give up a lot of favorite foods, like pasta and ice cream, but it doesn’t necessarily have to mean eating bland, boring food forever.
