468747 tn?1207169357 He has been in a preschool program for almost 1 year and has shown increasingly violent behavior. He is very well mannered and sweet at home; a little unmanagable, but nothing I felt out of the ordinary for a child his age(I do have 2 older girls with no problems). At school he refuses to follow rules and directions.

Avatar m tn Honestly, I don't really know a lot about OCD. I did notice, though, that some of your symptoms are similar to symptoms my sister has. She has been diagnosed with ADHD and Asperger's (form of autism). I really think you should find someone who can listen to you and find a diagnosis that will hopefully make more sense to your situation. Once that can get accomplished, they will be able to help you manage these symptoms better.
Avatar n tn Hi my name is Chance i have ADHD with a uncontrollable violent impulse and up until the 6th grade i didn't know i had it but the day i found out was the day i got put on medication for it and everyday since then i've been researching ADHD because i want to go off the medication and learn how to control it without it and i really want to try the other way and come up with a game plan with my family and doctor to control without medication and i've been waiting and researching for 8
Avatar m tn Actually, it really is ADHD and what you are describing are exactly the symptoms someone with ADHD would have. The fact that you are unaware of this means that your doctor (or someone) has not done a very good job at communicating with you. This is very sad because a child with ADHD really needs a whole different discipline schedule than a regular child. They also need a lot more help in school - hopefully he is getting that.
Avatar f tn Kicking, spitting, growling and violent behavior are symptoms of mental illness...please have your child evaluated by a child psychiatrist at a mental health facility that specializes in the care and treatment of children...your child's school should be able to assist you in locating these specialized services in your community.
Avatar f tn My four year old grandchild/fosterchild has been to the doctor and now take meds for ADHD. Frist was riddelen that did not work at all. New medication is Risperidone. No change has been noticed. This child before meds was pooping and peeing on her bedroom floor and even after meds. Im at my end and dont understand this kind of behavior.
Avatar m tn My four year old has always had issues with ADHD, with hyperactive behavior, Impulsiveness, and defiance. When he was two, if he was told to stay in his room and take a nap, he would lash out by smearing poop on the wall, or tearing up his toys or his room. I thought it was typical two year old behavior that he would grow out of, but it continued. When his two year old brother began walking, he started becoming aggressive toward him, choking him, and shoving him.
Avatar f tn I have a 7 year old son who is having eposodes of violent behavior. If something happens that he is not okay with he freaks out going into a violent rage. He will hit, throw things, and scream that he hates everyone and wishes we would all die. I have taken him to a therapist he has been on medication and it seems to be getting worst. This happens at school at least every other day. I just want him to have a normal life and not hurt himself or anyone else.

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?
Avatar m tn If only I could be sure it was only just ADHD. My son had the full testing to include the teacher and parental surveys at age 5 when he was first diagnosed with ADHD. 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.
Avatar n tn I have a 6yr old boy and a 9yr old girl and they fight all the time my son is adhd odd and may have some sycological issues he's on meds but he's getting really bad he's became violent with me and I just found out I'm pregnant it makes me alil uneasy because his favorite thing to do is kick me in my belly what do I do
Avatar n tn In several studies of children with an ADHD diagnosis and enlarged adenoids and/or tonsils, removal of these organs resulted in dramatically improved attention and behavior. In fact, in several studies, 50% of the children diagnoses with ADHD, who underwent the surgeries, 6 months later did not meet the criteria for ADHD. My son has been diagnosed with mild ADHD. And maybe indeed he has it.
Avatar f tn Now what can occur as children get older is a greater capacity to control their behavior. The ADHD condition remains, but it may have less of an influence.
Avatar f tn My son has been on the Feingold diet for mild autism and adhd symptoms. I noticed on the website that this diet can help with depression and suicidal thoughts. It also helps with violent behavior and insomnia. I've been adding a lot of the food into my everyday life and can personally tell you I feel pretty good. The diet eliminates foods with chemicals and dyes and even apples. Goodbye M&Ms and Skittles. To get the shopping guide and brochures is a bit expensive.
1766650 tn?1313633709 t work with ADHD kids. If you were to go on the ADHD site where I usually post, you would see this is pretty normal behavior. The sad thing is that whoever diagnosed her didn't give you much info on how to work with kids like her. I recommend the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley a lot. I think in your case I would highly recommend it because it will cover everything from discipline to coping with schools and homework to IEP's , etc.
Avatar f tn When the mood is stable the ADHD can be addressed. Relative to behavior management, you will find your answer in Lynn Clark's book SOS Help for Parents. I often recommend this book to parents. It is practical, straightforward, effective.
Avatar f tn Point being is that if all he is taking now is risperdal and he is not getting a help either med wise or behavioral therapy for his ADHD - then his ADHD is probably making both his and your life pretty miserable. This is a really good site for dealing with co-morbid disorders. The end of it has some very helpful suggestions. Its worth your time to check it outl The site is -
Avatar f tn Ok I have a 5 yr old little boy and me and his father has not been together for a while now UT he was diagnosed with adhd and we have both started new lives and I do have another son and they both see there father but it seems like when my five yr old comes back from his dad's he is very violent towards me never wants to listen pinches me bites me kicks me when he doesn't get his way..
Avatar m tn Understand that technically, everyone has ADHD to some extent. Just because you sometimes display ADHD behavior doesn't mean you have it. But yes, #1 shows inattentiveness. And #2 shows impatience/impulsiveness. Both are ADHD characteristics.
1383803 tn?1502917179 Kids with ADHD (heck most all kids) are sweet kids. Its there behavior that is not so good. A child with ADHD cannot turn it off and on at this age. Some of these behaviors should be happening at home. Do realize that one on one you may be able to cope/deal with him. But at preschool he is being judged daily (heck, minutely). This is very stressful. Also there is a good chance the preschool teachers don't know how to work with ADHD kids.
Avatar f tn Dr started him at 100mg daily and he is now at 300mg daily. He has been displaying violent behavior in school and at home. His favorite word is no. And he is very rude and confrontational to adults. He is sleeping and eating better,but that is it. Dr has said he has oppositional defiant disorder adhd and a very strong possibility of bi polar disorder. I can not even send him to school with the way he is behaving. Has anyone experienced a spike in violent behavior while on Seroquel?
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.
