Adhd symptoms toddlers

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd symptoms toddlers


Avatar f tn Steven Hyman, director of the National Institute of Mental Health, says he was shocked that either clonidine, an adult blood-pressure drug that appears to be increasingly used to treat ADHD symptoms or insomnia, or the older generation of tricyclic antidepressants were being given at all to preschoolers. Clonidine in combination with stimulants has been associated with heart problems in children.
Avatar f tn is there any know link b/t food allergies and adhd in toddlers (2-3 year olds)? specifically linked with diary allergies?
Avatar f tn I would seek a second opinion on his ADHD diagnosis. A 3 year old really shouldn't be diagnosed as such. Nearly all toddlers exhibit all (or nearly all) of the symptoms of ADHD - that is their nature. I can't say I agree with medicating a 3 year old for ADHD either, but that is my personal thought and I am not a medical professional. Some of the symptoms you referred to don't occur with ADHD - which is why I think seeking a second opinion would be helpful to you.
Avatar n tn My so has been diagnosis with ADHD has been on Med for two plus years, but this think pooping in his pants just came about, about six months ago. The strange think is that he will walk around like he doesn't smell anything.
Avatar n tn Hi there I'm really worried about my little boy having adhd he's nearly 2 years old which I know is young to reconize symptoms of his age but his behavour is worrisome.if he can't do something straight away he gets angry and will hit,head butt anything near him.if i tell him no for anything he responseds in the same way but with me.his anger outbursts are very extreme considering he's from a calm household.

Avatar f tn I am concerned about a student in our school who has been playing with his own feces in the bathroom and smearing it on the walls- he is 7 years old and diagnosed with ADHD (on medication once daily) as well as difficulty with anger management. I am looking for some direction in areas to research, things to recommend to the parents, and verification whether this is a concern of a child this age. And feedback is much appreciated. Thanks much.
Avatar n tn they do that. Toddlers do not sit still! They ALL appear hyper...well, maybe not all...some are like zombies. I have ADD...had it all my life. When I was a child my mom knew that I was "special". I was a very quick learner, smart as a whip, and knew how to read by the time I was 4. It wasn't until grade 1 that I started to "act" strangely. I couldn't focus...and that is what ADD/ADHD is all about...concentration.
Avatar f tn Yes. He is in therapy and has been since he was 3. He is in mainstream school. He tested as gifted. But he has ADHD. OCD and ODD. This behavior is new and I don't know how to help him stop or even why he does it.
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 f tn He regresses to things that toddlers do like biting, tearing things up and destroying things even when he knows it is wrong. I know they were looking at him for possible ADHD/Bipolar disorder. Does it sound like that might be the problem. My boyfriend has 5 kids and 4 of them are bipolar/adhd with another anger disorder and my son acts just like them when they are off their meds.
Avatar f tn I also agree that he is quite young for such experimenting with medication. They do now diagnose add/adhd earlier than the previous earliest age of 6. However, many things mimic add/adhd in those early years. Toddlers don't have the greatest impulse control or make safe decisions with NOTHING going on.
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 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)?
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 f tn And I noticed that outside of that one circluar area there are 5 or 6 dots that are all on their own on his legs. theres no fever or any other type of symptoms beyond this. Please advise on what this could be?
Avatar n tn hes hyper and not in the adhd way either but hes acting up and is a little mean to his siblings but hes seeking counseling...i am worried she will turn into one of those toddlers that scream at everything and is scared of everything cuz shes already crying at any lil thing...
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 The symptoms you are describing are complex, and are most likely not just a matter of her having or not having ADHD. The symptoms you are describing are consistent with ADHD as well as emotional disturbance, depression, learning problems and anxiety. I would recommend that you pursue a psychological assessment for this child that includes not only testing for specific learning disabilities but also emotional assessment and specific tests of her ability to sustain attention.
Avatar m tn Have had it for a few years. I have two toddlers who I worry for greatly. I have read that HSV2 genital is not really passable via household contact. However this medical journal: states that up to 25% of HSV2 carriers may also have an oral infection, and that HSV2 transmission to kids can happen indirectly, perhaps being more common with oral infections.
Avatar m tn Studies are demonstrating that adults with ADHD report similar symptoms as described in children with ADHD, but the daily impact of these symptoms is clearly different. Treatment with appropriate medication can significantly improve the outcome for ADHD. For example, effectively managing symptoms with medication can be a key factor in the prevention of another psychiatric disorder or of academic failure.
Avatar m tn 5 yr old...! get the picture? try to hard on using words like "DISCIPLINE" and "misbehaving" your gonna find yourself in trouble in a decade or so... take it easy, have some fun together, i'm guessing the kids hyperactive, so try to understand that life might get a bit difficult do to that,for the KID! so think a bit about him\her as-well. almost every society has a defect in knowing how to interact with hyperactive kids, so plz, don't make it worse for him\her.
