Avatar f tn they also eliminate harmful food substances like artificial additives, gluten and wheat, which are known to trigger ADHD symptoms.

Avatar m tn It use to be given to children exclusively for hyperactivity and other such symptoms/disorders as ADHD. It is many side-effects and has become a street drug in certain areas of our country. Below is an excerpt from a medical website that I often use. QUOTE: Ritalin for Adults With ADHD. Ritalin for ADHD treatment in adults has not been adequately studied, meaning that no large studies have been conducted on the benefits and risks of using it to treat adult ADHD.

Avatar m tn It could be gall bladder related, like gallbladder dyskinesia, which can cause your symptoms. Your symptoms could sometimes be due to hypothyroidism. It can cause constipation and bloating. A third possibility is colon disorders like inflammatory bowel disorders. You may need a HIDA scan, colonoscopy and thyroid profile to rule out these conditions. If no cause is detected, then it could be irritable bowel syndrome. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar n tn 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.
Avatar f tn In short, adhd symptoms. There was a reason why you started Vyvanse, and as you are now stopping it...those reasons are coming back. If you have not done need to read up on Ankylosis Sponilytis. It is a condition that will slowly get worse. And I am not sure that a muscle relaxer is recommended treatment. See - . And a muscle relaxer is certainly only short term treatment.
Avatar f tn While Omega-3 will likely offer a benefit to your son, it will not eliminate symptoms of ADHD (assuming that your son was diagnosed accurately to begin with). If the ADHD diagnosis was accurate, and he has not received benefit from the stimulant medications, the non-stimulant Strattera might be a worthwhile option.
Avatar m tn Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Possibilities that may need to be considered include dietary causes, infections, inflammations, GI motility disorders, neuro-muscular causes, hormonal/ endocrine issues, medication side effect etc. I would suggest considering an initial evaluation by an internist and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, this can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Avatar f tn These medicines are called stimulants and usually work better to control ADHD than Tenex. Go back to an ADHD expert doctor and try a different med, if there are no other medical reasons with your son.
190673 tn?1259203266 My shrink once long ago told me that all my symptoms are from anxiety and mild depression. Then why the symptoms of ADD are still there when my anxiety and depression is under control? Do you guys suggest I try some meds for it if I talk to my family doctor or should I see a shrink first?
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 m tn Keep in mind that the symptoms you report could be happening for many reasons, ADHD being only one possibility. A psychologist, neuropsychologist or doctor of education can do a psychological evaluation (series of tests) that will determine a diagnosis. If you are diagnosed with ADHD, you will then wish to consult with a psychiatrist to determine if you are an appropriate candidate for psychotropic medications and determine a treatment plan.
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.
6658361 tn?1384717351 You do have reasons for concern since ADHD is hereditary. But, if neither your or his dad have it, your chances would go down. The best thing that you can do is to learn about ADHD, so if by chance that your child does wind up with it - you are able to help your child become all that they are meant to be.
Avatar n tn When thinking about adult ADHD, keep in mind that it has to be a condition that has been with you since childhood (if the symptoms have come on suddenly, then it is not likely to be ADHD), and a general rule of thumb is that adults with ADHD have symptoms significant enough to interfere with their being able to achieve in accordance to their intellectual potential. Your situation is frustrating and confusing I am sure, but the symptoms you describe may not be ADHD.
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 I am asking if he could be developing ADHD symptoms at this age or is it just normal 9 year old boy behavior? My husband and I are at our wits end and very frustrated.
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)?
610983 tn?1351309926 It would be appropriate to bring up your chronic fatigue with your doctor. Medications used for ADHD are stimulants and should be used judiciously. Make sure you check for other reasons for your chronic fatigue, and not just assume that it's from the pseudotumor cerebri. Interestingly, there are associations between pesudotumor and obstructive sleep apnea. If you snore, or are overweight, maybe you should consider undergoing a sleep study.
327385 tn?1378360731 Sounds like your talking about my daughter, and she has ADHD. They started her off on Adderal XR, but she is now on Vyvance (sp). She did and does all the things you have listed, including the stealing and not knowing why. 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.
Avatar n tn Keep in mind that the symptoms you describe could happen for more reasons than just ADHD. I would indeed have her tested, though the school is not likely to want to test her unless her difficulties are having an educational impact. Children who are reasonably bright may not have academic difficulties related to ADHD until about 3rd grade, when the curriculum changes to include multi-step tasks and work that requires sustained attention to task.
Avatar m tn In the last year I have, on three separate occasions, have had symptoms of a white discharge, similar to Chlamydia symptoms, and each time I have gone to get it checked. The first time, both my girlfriend and I got tested, I went to the local health department clinic and she went to her physician and her results came back clean, and mine were considered inconclusive, but my white cell count was high.
