Avatar f tn My husbands father does suffer from mental illness and jokes that my 8 y/o gets it from him. He has many ADHD symptoms. Pedicatrician mentioned Aspergers. The Dr. doesn't even know about his sisters diagnosis. He tried him on Ritalin LA. He had a big improvement in the first month. Second month not as much of an improvement. Dr. questioned it being a a 'bad batch' of pills, but it is too expensive toget a bad batch so then we tried genericritalin and his heart beat out of his chest.
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 When I took adderall it made my anxiety worse and I felt like I had smoked crack. I tried taking it several times with the same outcome each time. I barely squeezed through high school and have continued to live with it ever since. I am now trying to get a college degree and I am having extreme difficulties. I have done tons of research online and I cant find one thing that my symptoms point towards. By what I have been reading i am leaning more towards an anxiety problem.
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 f tn Hi Nicole, I am going to do this in two posts so that you can take the first one in and show it to your doctor - just in case he is not aware of the drug interaction that is going on. The major problem is (according to Dr. Charles Parker in his book "New ADHD Medication Rules", pg. 71& 72) is that Prozac (fluoxotine is the generic) blocks one of the two most important pathways through the liver for stim meds.
Avatar n tn ADHD tends to run in families and most adults don't realize they have it until they have a child that is diagnosed with it. About 60% of children with ADHD continue to have symptoms after the age of 18....There is a lot of debate about the disorder being possibly underdiagnosed in adults, especially in women. The numbers are around 4-6% of adults are thought to have ADHD and only 1-3% are diagnosed...
186166 tn?1385262982 after reading creeks post below i remembered what a psychiatrist once shared with me. he was very interested in ADD/ADHD and had made that his specialty. he felt that most addicts also had either ADD or ADHD and he set out to do a several years reasearch project on this. he went to jails and rehabs all of the united states interviewing and testing those with addictions. i can't remember what the percentage he quoted me was, but it was around 85%...
Avatar f tn My son has been Diagnosed with ADHD and OCD. He has been on ADHD medication since he was 4 and now newly diagnosed with OCD. They think the Vyvanse is making the OCD sympotms worse. I can see this since we placed him on Zoloft for the OCD things have improved somewhat. I feel so bad for him becuase our personalities are so different. I am very melow and laid back but also Type A. He is constantly getting into trouble over little things at school almost daily.
Avatar f tn Throw the possibility of ADHD into the mix and everything gets a lot worse. I really don't know if he has ADHD. How long ago did the doctors see him and what kind of a doctor saw him? The reason I ask is that In October 2011, the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) released new clinical practice guidelines for the diagnosis, evaluation, and treatment of ADHD. It now does cover 4 year olds.
Avatar n tn He has been diagnosed with ADHD, but now could possibly be Aspergers Syndrome. Either way, he is a real nightmare, but worse on the e numbers!
Avatar m tn wait til she gets older , it gets better or worse? who knows? . it is very hard thing on adhd medicines or not on people.
1453183 tn?1287852619 My son has been diagnosed with having ADD/ADHD and was put on Atterall and then a year ago the doctors took him off the medication and his schooling has suffered because of it. My question is would home schooling him help him or hurt him in anyway? And What else can I do to teach my child how to help control his symptoms?
Avatar f tn Been reading a lot about foods that irritate ADHD and help with the symptoms. Also have been seeing a lot of postings about supplements/vitamins to use to help control ADHD symptoms. My son is 6 and has ADHD. Anyone out there with successful foods/supplements/vitamins that help? Thoughts?
Avatar n tn The Strattera seems to ease my anxiety while slightly reducing ADHD symptoms and the Adderal XR nearly eliminates the remaining ADHD symptoms. Is it safe to take Adderal XR and Strattera at the same time? I only have a two week supply of Strattera remaining and I'm very much dreading going back to my old self. If it is safe to combine both medications, what should I say to my doctor?
766032 tn?1281645081 I had facial ticks, trembling, sweating, memory issues, and a whole lot of other symptoms on the Effexor. Paxil gave me the same symptoms but my whole body would twitch and tick. The only one I had "some success" with was Lithium...but I had to go in for blood testing all the time. The Lithium by itself seemed to be ok...but when they added the Effexor it went from bad to horrific. I can't remember what ( if anything ) happened to me on the Lithium...I was 24 then...almost 45 now...
Avatar f tn i've heard some it helps and others it doesn't. My son is 21 years old and has had ADD since he was a child and it seems to be getting worse. tried other meds that didn't seem to help.
Avatar n tn my sons tics where full body moments to where his phsyciatrist thought he had austistic type symptoms...only got worse on other med like concerta, strattera on the other hand did not cause tics at all on my son, but it didn't work to well.for focus..and it is not a stimulant..
Avatar m tn People who have been on stim medications for years can stop it the next day and the only problem is that they revert back to their adhd symptoms. There is NO withdrawal. Thus the only withdrawal symptoms that you can be having are from the Diazepam. You are seriously disregarding how dangerous and long lasting these symptoms can be. Google it! All of your symptoms fit. It is also possible that having gone through opiate withdrawals several times (congratulations, but ouch!
Avatar f tn i was wondering if anyone here diagnosed with adult adhd could share with me a few things please in regards to focusing and staying focused whether it's reading or driving television any activity does medication help you stay focused? and does the ability to not be able to focus extend to everything regardless the level of interest you hold in it?
Avatar f tn I do have symptoms of ADHD and also of BPD. I really dont know what to do. I am feeling scared a little more depressed than I usually am when I think about my issue. Should I take the treatment? Is it going to be a long treatment? Do ADHD and personality disorders occur together? PS: Ok I havent been to the doc again cos I fear he will put me on some drug which will make me drowsy leave me drooling all over like the other doc did.
Avatar m tn im a 20 year old man. i have about 85 percent of the symptoms of adhd but i havent been diagnosed. i was wondering if adhd or add can cause me to feel like i dont wanna work. i mean. i hate to work more than most people. once i get going its okay. but sometimes i get very frustrated just thinking that i have to spend 40 hours out of the week working. i find myself wanting to do other things in the middle of my work. is this adhd or could it be part of a personality disorder?
Avatar f tn My daughter was diagnosed with ADHD can anyone tell me if alcohol triggers angry outburst, impulsive behavior and ADHD symptoms? I use to blame it on the ADHD but I think she may be an alcoholic as well. She gets violent during her drinking bindges and has blackouts while she's awake, stays up for hours giving people around her plain ole hell.
1455599 tn?1285511500 Many parents of ADHD kids have found that by having their child's tonsils and adenoids removed, their child's ADHD symptoms decreased significantly. Some of them, when tested a year after surgery, were no longer considered to have ADHD. I have a 3 1/2 year old who was diagnosed with ADHD and ODD in June of last year. After seeing info on the tonsil and adenoid thing and my husband having sleep apnea, I decided to have my son examined by an ENT.
Avatar n tn If ADHD goes undiagnosed till adulthood what are some of the symptoms? Can depression be one? Can Bipolar be one? Is addictive personality a symptom of any one of these?
