Avatar f tn I agree with Jenkaye 100% with her suggestions for cutting back on video games. I wonder however if gators32 was wondering how someone with ADHD could concentrate on a video game. And the answer is that the stimulation is great enough that they will get locked into the game and actually can have a hard time quitting. So, yes, a child with ADHD can concentrate enough to play video games.
521840 tn?1348840771 These same childhood symptoms take on different forms in adults with ADHD. For example, most adults with ADHD are not floridly hyperactive. Instead, an adult is more likely to report ‘inner restlessness’ or problems with impulsivity. Symptoms of ADHD impact important adult tasks such as remembering to pay the mortgage, paying attention while driving, or managing your children’s schedules.
Avatar m tn Children who are or have been on ADHD drugs have an increased risk of committing suicide.Even the American Psychiatric Association admits that suicide is the major adverse reaction of withdrawal from these drugs. Clarke reports that “symptoms usually peak within two to four days after withdrawal of the drugs although depression and irritability may persist for months. Suicide risk can persist for years.

Avatar n tn Excuse me but the whole concept of this seems pattently ridiculous. My youngest has ADHD with a big H and he carries Lyme's but he had the ADHD WAY before he contracted the other. I will certainly check out the video but I start out as a disbeliever.
Avatar n tn My 12 year old son in 6th grade has been getting in touble for the last month because he continues to forget homework, doesn't turn it in, doesn't remember to bring books home and is talking in class. We have met with his teachers and have been told that he loses focus in class as well. We have had this trouble with him over the last several years but though he was doing better.
Avatar f tn Well, obviously part of this depends on how long this has been going on. It might be a good idea to get more information on ADHD to see if any of the symptoms sound familiar. I've got tons of resources. While many are very detailed (your parents might be interested in those), this is pretty direct - check it out - http://www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/What-signs-should-I-look-for/show/773154 If there is anymore questions you have, please feel free to post. Best wishes!
Avatar f tn My 10 year old daughter is finally set up for an 24 hour video EEG. So I will finally get to see what is going on with her. I wrote in previously about her muscle twitching all over. I am excited to get the results, but nervous because I don't want it to be something real serious. I just want to see what is causing her twitching or tics all over so we can put her on the medicine she needs to be on.
Avatar n tn HI, my son Chris is 18 with Adhd,P.D.D. Nos is makes noicesall the time & comes up and touches me all the time he also claps his hands. He usually does this alot when he is playing those video games.Is is Adhd meds working? I dont think so. He takes 10mg in morning & 10mg at night!
11487567 tn?1418754128 Second, there is a strong possibility that her anxieties are being caused by or strengthened by her ADHD which I assume she has? If so, treating only the anxiety part could make her symptoms actually worse. And, essentially, the treatments are just masking the symptoms and not treating the cause. This is a very good link on ADHD and anxiety. http://www.add.org/page/ADHDandAnxiety In terms of combining stim meds and anxiety meds, this link to a short video by Dr.
Avatar n tn Talk to his pediatrician. They can often give you advice on what would cause behavioral problems and if necessary, direct you to have him evaluated. They can often tell you by an exam if he has add/adhd. He may be an active little boy who needs someplace to vent his energy as well but the comments about killing and eating people is a little worrisome. Does he play video games at home or at a friends house that may be a little too graphic?
Avatar n tn He asked us to video our son and after seeing the video, ordered an EEG to rule out atonic seizures. The result of the test was abnormal intermittent spiking in the frontal lobes. The Dr wanted to prescribe anti-seizure meds but my husband and I wanted to research them first. We saw another Ped/Neuro for a second opinion, and were told seizures were a possibility as were childhood tics and maybe Tourettes.
5690865 tn?1372451618 Hyper focus means you can focus for one thing for a very long time, in spite of the ADD/ADHD. My son can do this with video games. However, getting him to focus on homework or even eating his dinner is a struggle. I hope this helps. Good luck!
793266 tn?1275479663 Today I started adding fish oil and a B-complex vitamin for the adhd symptoms, and vitamin D for thyroid/mood. I am taking fish oil at dinner, B at all meals, and D at one meal. I am hoping these will increase energy, memory, and decrease AdHd symptoms and mood swings.

Avatar f tn Our 9 year old has a lot of ADD/ADHD characteristics, but has not been formally diagnosed, nor treated with medication. My issue is that he has always been a non sleeper. Even as a baby, he slept less than what would be considered normal. He will not sleep with the light off because he claims he's scared of the dark and he often gets up in the middle of the nite to play video games, computer or even just to read books.
Avatar f tn i have a 5 year old son (only child) who was diagnosed with adhd and placed on adderal 5 mg. it has not worked so we have taken him off. he has also been diagnosed with ocd for constantly peeling the skin off his thumbs/fingers and now starting on his toes. the dr wants to place him on zoloft to treat the ocd. will this help with the adhd in school?? He is very smart and ahead of his class but cannot wait his turn and blurts, etc. Very active and constantly moving.
Avatar n tn I had him tested for ADD, ADHD, and one person said he has inatentive adhd, but them another says there is nothing wrong with him. he gets mad easily, but then is over just as quick. Now he is in the habit of saying inappropriate things to girls. He sat on a little girls lap the other day. We had a huge meeting at the school. We had him talk to a police officer. I have banned him from all t.v. So, today, he get in school suspensioin for pushing a girl.
Avatar m tn He has been on resperidone for 11/2 week showing only ADHD and ODD symptoms. He is driving us crazy but not showing any signs of anger or aggression. We then introduced ADHD medication, guanfacine, evening only. Second day he started exhibiting more aggressive, angry behavior. I plan to call the Doctor on Monday, but wanted to know if anyone else had similar situation?
709940 tn?1231900307 My son went through a phase of testing with a clinical child psychologist. She said that her "instincts" say that he does not have a PDD, but possibly ADHD, even though he displays all signs of having a PDD. She said that because he did not display these behaviors in her office, she can't say. What she did say was that he has Language Processing Disorder, Sensory Integration Dysfuncion and Speech delays.
Avatar n tn But, you do need to know if he does have ADHD - although his symptoms would certainly suggest it. And having two siblings with it would certainly enhance the odds of him having it. Perhaps what ever doctor is helping you with them could also give guidance. Anyway, here is a good general overall look at adhd. http://www.medicinenet.com/parenting_a_child_with_adhd/article.htm You might want to get the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley.
