Avatar f tn I have heard of ADHD symptoms, I heard that it is much more easier to have fights if you have ADHD also ADHD kids act mostly, hyper, either violent(Not all), Overreacting over mainly little things. Sometimes they wonder in there own world. Having Aspergers can be different in many ways, Aspergers is when your child is having emotional problems maybe even getting embarrassed, shy, difficult education maybe even speech problems.
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 m tn By the way, I have seen several studies that show that sleep apnea can produce ADHD like symptoms. In fact, there have been several posters on here that have had sleep apnea, been treated and their daytime behaviors definitely changed. Has anybody ever commented about you snoring or breathing loud at night? "Regardless of type, an individual with sleep apnea is rarely aware of having difficulty breathing, even upon awakening.

Avatar m tn Hey Chris, you are certainly describing some of the symptoms of AD/HD - probably more ADD. One sure symptom for me was to examine a kids test and look for stupid mistakes. Kid would do really well, and then start to self destruct on simple questions later in the test. They just couldn't focus - and they wanted to. In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley (you might want to buy it), she basically says on p.
Avatar f tn My memory is still very good, but it isn't so spectacular. I remember things as if it was played back on a video. I don't have ADHD. I keep or improve my memory with mental exercises that sharpen or retain memory. I found after years of on and off stability with my bipolar disorder, I developed responses and habits that do not help me very well. For that, I do behavioral therapy techniques which I practice, practice, practice.
Avatar f tn Hi, answered your post about your daughter and figured I should do the same for you. My first thought is that you certainly have some of the symptoms of ADHD or ADD. And, of course, if you have it (or your husband) - it dramatically increases the chances that your daughter could also have it. You are probably fairly intelligent or it would have/should have been picked up in school. Although girls, especially girls with ADD, don't get noticed as easily as all of those bouncy boys.
Avatar n tn I have only recently learned of the ODD. My daughter has been diagnosed with "mild" ADHD. Her pychologist also told us that she is extremely bright. She is doing well academically in kindergarten; her teacher said she is above average in most areas of learning. Our problem is her behavior. She not only falls into four symptoms of ODD, but exhibits all six of the criteria.
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.
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.
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. Today he was awake at 4am, so he's functioning on only 7 hours of sleep!!
Avatar f tn My 7 yr old son was diagnosed with adhd at age 4, having complex focal seizures since age 5 1/2. On straterra at age 4, for 6 months, didn't work. Next was ritalin it works but his behaviors are still outrageous throughout the day, He gets frustrated easily which then turns into anger and defiance. On clonadine for bed 1mg ritalin 10mg at 8am 10mg at 12pm clonapine .025 twice a day at 8am and bedtime, for seizures.
Avatar n tn I have had conferences with the teachers and they keep bringing up ADD and ADHD. I took him to the doctor when he was 5 to have him checked and was told that if i dont think he has it then he probably doesn't and he didnt exhibit symptoms when he was at the office. When he is at home he will color, read, and do puzzles for long periods of time and not exhibit any add or adhd behaviors.
Avatar m tn He has just had them repeated, but has only been with his teachers for 2 weeks so it's too early to report. He has symptoms of several disorders-ADHD, Aspergers, bi-polar, OCD, ODD. Our biggest problem is that everyone focuses on his school work where he is a straight A student and has attended the magnet school for the gifted. I am not at all concerned about his academic abilities. I am extremely concerned about his social skills.
Avatar n tn If you do have ADHD you won't get dependent on them. If you don't have ADHD, they can be seriously addicting. For that reason alone (plus a bunch or others), you need to see a doctor that can help you. I would try to find a psychologist or psychiatrist that specials in ADHD. Stay away from your general MD. The reason for that is that you want someone who can give you more than just meds.
521840 tn?1348844371 Many parents are confused by the fact that their child can happily spend two hours playing a video game, yet can not complete a short homework worksheet. ADHD is a neurological disorder that has a significant, pervasive impact on learning and behavior. As Dr. Larry B. Silver has noted, ADHD is a ‘life disability.’ It is not just problems at school.
Avatar f tn Hello, the key to determining if a young child has ADHD is to determine to what degree his symptoms are occurring across settings, and how much his behavior differs from that of other boys his age. Much of what you describe is common unwanted behavior in a boy his age, though it is clear that he needs to learn new skills to follow rules and keep himself safe.

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 Kids of that age don't deal with long term threats (and a week is long term), you need to start at one day and slowly expand. Taking something out of his room seems kind of silly when he probably has other things to play with. Discipline needs to be immediate. consistent, and short term (that way it can slowly be increased). His timeouts probably would be more effective if they were at the kitchen table or a chair in the corner of the living room - someplace other than his room.
Avatar f tn That's a difficult combo to treat bipolar and ADHD bc it seems to me the ADHD meds would worsen the bipolar. Is he more aggressive since he started the Concerta? If so, tell the psychiatrist, Ritalin is a stimulant drug and stimulants make bipolar worse. It sounds like a REALLY tough situation and it sounds like he is not very stable mood-wise. Try to remember he has two illnesses. Also try not to beat yourself up if you lose it.
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 m tn The trouble is that depression will cause the symptoms you have mentioned. And the symptoms you mentioned would cause you to be depressed. To figure it all out you first need to eliminate the physical causes. It sounds like you have been doing that with the tests for hypothyroidism and I would assume that you have been getting other blood work done (low iron, anemia, etc.) The next step is to make sure you have a doctor that can deal with both the physical and mental/emotional issues.
Avatar n tn He used to be obsessed with trains,but now he has been engrossed with video games for the past 3 years.He rarely goes anywhere without his Gameboy and does not want to put it down.Are all these issues related to just ADHD,or could there be some other problem thas has not been identified?
1304850 tn?1273219093 I question the possibility that I may have adult ADHD but those symptoms might also be due to depression or bipolar disorder. I know it sounds stupid but I'm hesitant to see a doctor because if it were nothing, I'd feel like I was wasting their time or just trying to find an excuse for my faults.
Avatar f tn So I have just recently been diagnosed with ADHD. I am a 22 year old university student in my third year and I admit I've struggled and been trying to cope with ADD my entire life. In high school I was prescribed effexor for what was believed to be anxiety, but stopped on my own after about a year/half. The withdrawals were terrible and I promised myself to never take anti-depressants again.
Avatar m tn I would keep a journal of symptoms and unusual behaviors prior to the appointment, and if you can, try to video what your son is like during an outburst. Make the psychiatrist aware if you observe symptoms such as: disordered thinking, strange ideas or delusions, mood swings, periods of reduced need for sleep, extreme changes in energy level, hypersexuality and suicidal or homicidal ideas. The very first priority is everyone's safety--yours and your son's.
Avatar f tn Many other conditions and situations can trigger behavior that resembles ADHD.
Avatar f tn There was a mother speaking about her three children with Lyme who exhibited symptoms of ADD, ADHD and OCD. The good news is once they got treated for Lyme, those symptoms diminished. Perhaps you should get your children tested also. I understand your concern as I am a mother of a 4 month-old who I am afraid will come down with symptoms some day. So far he is healthy, but there is always a fear that I passed this to him during pregnancy.
Avatar m tn Sounds like it could just be a run of the mill teenager on drugs. All of his symptoms could stem from his drug use. Take him to the doctor if he is on ADHD meds...good luck.
