Adhd violence

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd violence


Avatar f tn Most developmental experts highly recommend it for kids with adhd. And another issue many kids with nervous system issues has (which adhd is) is that they seek impact. Boxing bags and kickboxing bags are known treatments for that again often recommended by experts. It is to feed the nervous system and is what they call "heavy work" and a known therapy to help someone be able to maintain themselves when they need to. Contrary to promoting violence, it actually heads it off.
Avatar n tn With the pattern of violence that has emerged, his emotional detachment coupled with his propensity for meticulous planning and our inability to control any of it, we are really worried about what a adolescent male with such tendencies will do. Is the baby safe? His mother? Is this normal for Asperger's? Will the tumultuous hormones of his teen years, that trouble so many kids, turn him into a serious threat to the health and safety of the rest of the family?
Avatar n tn One of the criteria used to diagnose ADHD is that a child must display the problems in at least two settings-- such as home and school, or daycare and home-- or something like that. If I am reading what you wrote properly, your child only displays problems at home. If that is the case, then it would seem to me that the ADHD diagnosis needs to be revisisted.
Avatar f tn My son is 5yrs old and has adhd and odd. He is on Ritalin as well as Abilify. The Ritalin helps him be calm but he is constantly throwing temper tantrums at school. They are so bad I have to pick him up early almost everyday. Is there something else that I could do to help this issue?

And I would also realize that (as I said) he may take a bit of experimentation to find out what works best.
Avatar n tn I have a 10 year old boy who was diagnosed with ADHD when he was much younger. I am at my wits end with him. He is very disrespectful to everyone around him yells screams does not listen at all. Its scares me because his little brother is only 2 and he has hurt him badly before. At school same thing below grade level has no respect cant sit still and is very impulsive. When he is in a good mood he is the sweetest boy in the world but this does not happen very often.
Avatar f tn I was told they were diagnosed ADHD earlier in their life, and that was the cause of their school troubles and their failure to achieve social acceptance. They have both been in court ordered programs, one is living with us, and one will be coming home to live with us within the next month. What I have seen is more than hyperactivity or impulsivity.
Avatar f tn And yes, there are several things that can cause ADHD symptoms that are not ADHD - and they should be checked out! But your symptoms are also classic ADHD as well as your self medication reactions. To get a feeling for what adult ADHD is like check out the link and the advice posted here. You ask about resources for people like you. My first question would be - what kind of a doctor is your doctor?

Avatar n tn Diagnosis: ADHD/ODD, Anxiety, Depression, Bipolar II, Learning Disability  Separation Anxiety, Deep depression – up and down (swings), eyelash pulling and pulling out hair without anti-depressant, it took 150mg of Zoloft to finally stop the habits and put a smile on his face.  Does not feel pain like other children – can run across rock beach with no shoes and feels nothing - no pain. Loves animals can get stung by bees and does not care.

Avatar n tn My child has been the recipient of violence from a classmate with some sort of autism spectrum disorder - both in school and daycare for the past 4 years. He was not the only recipient of the violence, but he was the most regular recipient. My husband and I have been patiently working with school and daycare administrators to protect my child while keeping in mind the special circumstances and human rights of the other child.
Avatar f tn My son has adhd/bipolar. I'm very confused about everything, i keep blaming myself as to maby its my fault that my son has these conditions? did i do something wrong? My son has changed medicine numerous times, its like only a temporary fix for him. He is on yvanse,intuniv, and trileptal duringt he day and then he takes trazodone to sleep at night. even then that dont work all the time.
Avatar m tn Doctor: ADHD Does Not Exist Dr. Richard Saul March 14, 2014 Over the course of my career, I have found more than 20 conditions that can lead to symptoms of ADHD, each of which requires its own approach to treatment. Raising a generation of children—and now adults—who can't live without stimulants is no solution.
Avatar m tn He has had seziures since age 4, night terrors, on medication for adhd. He can not sit still, he and a neighbor kid at age 5 were found hitting his dog with a metal rod. He recently drew a picture and when asked what it was, it was a picture of himself with devil horns stabbing a person with a knife. He said the voices told him to draw it. Also at age 5 he was found holding a rope around his 2 year old brothers neck.
Avatar n tn When is the custodial parent going to get a break. Thomas is a hard child to raise. The domestic violence happen because 90% of the time me protectin Thomas from Tom. I really do not understand any of this. Its had to want to hang in there and just let him become yet another stat of failure when no acknoledgement is ever given. I the group that was with Thomas he was the o nly one that went onto college.
Avatar n tn 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?
Avatar n tn We ere miss-diagnosed as bi-polar for roughly a year before we got a correct diagnoses just this March. He did take vyvanse then focalin but both of these severely increased his violence. He now takes wellbutrin and tinax. Nothing has helped. He is extremely smart and is in fact in the gifted and talented program at school, but over the last year he has started acting out at school were it used to just be at home. HELP, has anyone been here and found any success????

He cant hold a job and he is going into the Navy ..I dont think this will last unless he gets some sort of help to figure this all out.. Any suggestions.. Please help ..
Avatar f tn From what I have researched online I suspect my daughter has ADHD. She is always on the go, very bright, but 'badly behaved.' She is nearly 5yo and having problems at school, if anyone upsets her she lashes and out and attacks them. At the last parents meeting her teachers asked me if they could bring in a psychologist and I agreed, but I haven't heard anything since.
Avatar f tn So my son has been diagnosed with ADHD, Aspergers, OCD and bipolar tendencies and I am just curious what this means for him in the future. He is only 4 years old and I guess I am needing to know what to expect, will he have a normal life or will he never be normal. I have three other children and another on the way and was shocked to find out my son has such big problems.
521840 tn?1348844371 This is a significant number of people, particularly when you consider that ADHD runs in families. This rate would mean that ADHD among the most common mental health disorders in adults. The research suggests that more adults have ADHD than have schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, and many other well known mental health problems (though depression remains more common). As Dr. Larry Silver so eloquently described it, ADHD is not just a learning disability; it is a ‘life disability.
482924 tn?1333207271 My younger son aged 6yrs 6months had been diagnosed with ADHD 3 yrs back. He had been on medication after that. But none of the same helped. So we along with his teacher's advice stopped it. Now he is no better. He is always restless and so on. The worst part is when he is with outsiders. He behaves so badly that I feel like running away. We seldom take him to social places for this reason.
2131352 tn?1335625493 The nuerologist has diagnosed my two year old son with sever adhd and mood dis-order, we have tried depokote liquid and it did not help my son @ all, he actually said it burned his mouth, my son can not stay focused on one thing at all, he is very mean and has violent outburst towards me. He can not calm down at all, he will run and be wild for hours at a time with no break and I have to make him sit down with me and break for a minute.

Avatar n tn 59 I babysit an 8-year-old boy who has ADHD. Most of the time he behaves well with me, but during his bad days, he'll do something very risky or disrespectful-hit others, start fights with older siblings and adults, climb on the outside of staircase (his parents were supposed to be watching him when I saw him do this), go into the street, chase after moving vehicles. Now, his parents spank him, but I noticed that this just makes him angrier.
