Avatar f tn You always know the rules...good or us ADHD types. Lots of physical activity...good for us ADHD types. I could go on. I think there are probably many people with ADHD who go into the military who were like me and didn't even know they have ADHD. My point is...IMHO, I find it harder to compensate for my ADHD in a professional job, married, etc than it was in the military.
Avatar n tn My daughters symptoms went away quickly my son need a pretty high dose because his symptoms were more severe. The tricky part in this is the ADHD because the ADHD meds can make OCD symtoms worse! They are stimulants. Try only the seratonin med first. Sometimes ADHD can be solved with only this. You need a good Neuropsychologist here for the Tourettes/ADHD. They are the brain chemical experts. Not a Neurologist. Insist on an MRI w/ your Neurologist though!

444265 tn?1292467473 Dear Avianna, There is another book called Healing ADD by Dr. Daniel Amen. He describes six different types of ADD/ADHD. You can find excerpts online by googling together the words Amen six types ADHD. The web site for "Attend" by Vaxa also has these six types listed. Your parents, and yourself, might be interested in alternative approaches such as bio-feedback, Emotional Release Therapy (Google Weston ERT) and supplements such as tyrosine, theanine, and 5htp. God bless.

Avatar m tn I am 44. Recently diagnosed with inattentive ADHD. I have all types of memory problems, focus/concentration problems. A have a phobia of any situation that might reveal a lack of ability to articulate. I have very poor reading comprehension and have to read and reread many times to process it or in other words there is little automaticity there when I read. I have tried 6 different medications none of which has helped. My only source of relief is avoidance and denial.
Avatar f tn Frankly, if she has anxiety, I would try and deal with the cause which is probably ADHD. The best way to deal with ADHD is to really understand it. One book I have been recommending to do so is the, "ADD / ADHD Answer Book by Susan Ashley. Not sure where you are getting your information for meds, but if you haven't done so, I would look into a pediatric psychiatrist who specializes in ADHD.
Avatar m tn Even though I found myself to be ADHD, most people with ADHD complain about not making to work on time. However, I made it to work on time for every single day, is this a strong indicator of not having ADHD?
Avatar f tn I have several questions regarding treatment options for adults with PDD and ADHD. My brother was diagnosed with PDD-NOS and ADHD when he was five years old. He did not receive pharmacologic interventions, but received intensive Occupational, Physical, and Speech Therapy. He is now 24 years old, and has done incredibly well. He currently attends college at the Art Institute of California in San Francisco.
Avatar f tn Psychiatrist are most knowlegable with these types of medications and what will work best for you. Who diagnosed you with ADD/ADHD and how long ago? Anxiety alone can cause concentration problems so I'm just trying to figure out what is going on. But regardless, you should call your doctor and discuss this with him. He needs to know if the medication isn't working for you. If you could tell us what medications you're on, along with any other symptoms it would help...okay?
1053987 tn?1279304510 There are 2 types of ADHD- hyperactive and inattentive. Bipolar II is commonly misdiagnosed as ADHD because many of the symptoms are the same like loss of concentration, memory, racing thoughts, etc. The key to distinguishing between the two is that, to warrant a diagnosis of ADHD, the symptoms must have been present in childhood. The ADHD-like symptoms of BPII begin at any time with the onset of the disorder.
550146 tn?1216357734 my son was diagnosed with adhd at the age of 4. Through out the five years and different doc's he has also been diagnosed with ODD/PTSD/ ED and mood disoreders. I am going out of my mind. His aggression is not as bad as it was. Different meds seem to trigger this behavior. Staying still and on task is somthing that he CAN NOT seem to do . he has been on different types of meds ..Focalin,staterra,Concerta, and prozac. It is like a a a bit of ADHD mixed in with a bit of bi-polar.
Avatar f tn Predominantly Inattentive Type Predominantly Hyperactive/Impulsive Type Combined Type Sometimes a combination of therapy and medication is indicated. Of all the medications prescribed to treat ADHD, stimulants are often the most effective. Paradoxically, medications that are mild stimulants often deliver a calming effect to the central nervous system (brain and nerves) of those with ADHD. In some cases, antihypertensives or antidepressants may be prescribed.

But, I really am wondering due to your question about weight gain (Resperdal?) if she has been treated with antipsychotic meds rather then adhd meds. And, if your doctor is just trying to deal with her mood swings?
Avatar m tn My 7 year old girl was diagnosed w/ ADHD 3 years ago. She has been on Vyanese, and it helps the daily school functions but once it wears off she acts like a DEMON most nights. We have tried all types of discipline, but to no avail. It doesn't matter what you do for discipline (sit in corner, spanking, go to be w/ no TV) it all seems to be funny to her. My wife & I are at wits end and need some advice, from anyone who has been through the same situation. Thanks in advance.
Avatar m tn We now know that there are many types of coexisting disorders (most of which have been caused by the ADHD or ADD). For example check out my post on ODD here http://www.medhelp.org/posts/ADD---ADHD/Adult-with-ODD/show/1966456#post_9234381 It is possible that with a severe case of ODD, your doctor figured it was bipolar. And maybe not. But, in the good ole days, a doctor was more apt to sedate, then give a stim med. To answer your question, bone up on all the info you can on ADHD.
Avatar f tn I am worried that my brother may have ADHD. he is constantly on the go and can never relax. even when he asleep he is restless. He struggles to get to sleep and has temper tantrum often. He has even resorted to throwing things around the room and hitting people. Any one can help, please speak to me.
Avatar f tn My son has ADD or ADHD. I have seen it both ways in his chart. I have tried to figure out which he has..but the docotor who diagnosed him..is no longer within reach...I have tried to read about it...there's alot of info. My son is hyper--but I feel that his level of hyperness is normal for his age. Can anyone break this difference down for me and tips for each would be welcome.
Avatar m tn I got custody of my 7 year old nephew along with his two sisters and 1 brother about two years ago. All four if them were diagnosed with ADHD and on medication. After dealing with his behaviors I feel like their may be something else going on, but am having a difficult time pin pointing it. He definitely has all of the ADHD symptoms, but some added on top.
Avatar f tn the differential diagnosis between BP and ADHD is hard. but the 1st has to show the 2 phases of BP depression and mania although some types of BP manifest itself in mania only and some are called NOS. But i would consider a 3rd opinion and even 4th if you can afford simply because the 1st line of dealing with any illness is the right diagnosis. However one point of concern worth telling you that the drugs for psych illness are almost the same.
Avatar n tn Did a behavioral pediatrician or pediatric neurologist evaluate your daughter at the time of diagnosis of ADHD? Other than her ADHD she is a healthy normal child without any other neurological problems? We, at the Cleveland Clinic use more than the Conner test to assess ADHD. This is not to imply that your daughter was misdiagnosed. The conner test only evaluates the teachers observation of the child and may be biased by his/her perception of you daughter.
