Adhd vitamin therapy

Common Questions and Answers about Adhd vitamin therapy


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 n tn My son is 9. He was diagnosed ADHD combined type with compulsive destructive(?) disorder. He is not on any prescription med's. He does however take vitamin supplements for memory, focus and concentration and Calm Child for the evenings to help wind him down for bed. He is very very smart and artistic. He is an avid reader. My son is very tender hearted and takes everything personally, good or bad. But he has another side that comes out of nowhere and we are losing control of it.

Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with Vitamin D deficiency. My level was 5, and my doctor said it should be closer to the 50 - 70 range. I've been very foggy headed and my memory poor. Initially the doctor thought that was attributed to ADHD. I'm now on supplements (1) 5000 iu Viramin D3 daily. I'm wondering how long it may take before my brain feels clearer. Thanks!
Avatar n tn // I believe from my years of posting on the ADHD forum, that the single most important thing that you can do is to become an expert in ADHD because you are going to probably become the single most important change agent in his life (outside of meds). You will become his advocate in school. You will learn how to discipline him in a way that is effective and not punitive.
Avatar m tn I would love to keep him off meds and introduce heavy vitamin regulated diet therapy, but worried about what such heavy vitamins could do to his internal organs over the years. Not to mention my insurance doesn't cover alternative therapy. How would you handle this situation if it were your child? I'm considering more therapy, but don't know what kind is the best or if it is even worth going to due to his attitude. He is a very sweet child with a lot of potential.
Avatar n tn While some physicians diagnosis on the basis of a quick interview, and some use symptom checklists, the most responsible way to determine if a child has ADHD is to refer him for psychological or neuropsychological assessment. ADHD is frequently diagnosed by the presence of symptoms, yet it is important to note that symptoms such as impulsivity or forgetfulness can also be caused by anxiety, depression, or other factors.

Avatar m tn I have also heard other people talking about natural supplements, such as Omega 3,6,9, Fish Oil and Vitamin C. I have also never tried this for my stepson, but plan to. Hope this helps!
Avatar f tn I asked the doctor, and the doctor gives him neurobion (the ingredients are 100 mg vitamin B1 mononitrate, 200 mg vitamin B6 hydrochloride, 200 mcg vitamin B12). The neurobion helps him, so that he can study for the next day. In internet i also read that vitamin b deficiencies can show adhd symptom. there anybody have the experience like my son ?
Avatar f tn I would stop taken the ADHD drugs and try taken Vitamin B6 and Omega 3-6-9 Vitamins. They don't have the very bad side effects that these other drugs do.And make sure to get some Counseling to help with the ADHD. And do things that help burn off the energy. If you read anything I have posted you will see why I say this.
Avatar f tn My daughter also has ADHD, and my fiance had the same problem getting mad at her. I got her on meds and went through therapy with her. I learned some really great discipline techniques in therapy that really work for kids with ADHD. I came home, sat everyone down and explained the technique. We then practiced and did some role playing so that everyone was on the same page about what was to be expected.
Avatar n tn My son was diagnosed with ADHD when he was 3 years old but I refused to put him on medication at that time because my older son was also diagnosed with ADHD and has time went on was able to manage with meds. Then I found out that he has ADHD the behavior part and with my older son was ADHD the learning disability part. Well, has my younger son got older and taller the symptoms and everything else got worse.
Avatar n tn My 7 years old son just started the second grade. Every year he has begun either pre-school, kindegarten or 1st grade we've heard back from the teachers within a few weeks that he may have an ADHD problem. As a result we've gone through several evaluations ranging from, observational to clinical evaluations by a child psychologist, including occupational therapy, and a neurologist. None have made a diagonosis of ADHD.
Avatar f tn Some research claims that OCD (and ADHD) are due to dietary issues, slight allergies, etc. Some say a lack of a B vitamin (research done by a doctor), and some say other things. The herbals we used were on nativeremedies ******* and they have some for ADHD (brightspark) and for OCD (MindSoothe Jr, and also --- most helpful for us was the Nerve Tonic). Good luck!
Avatar f tn Can a child therapist who deals in ADHD and Sex really determine after one visit if a child has been abused or not? My son (8) has accused my sisters son (9) of teaching him how to suck on a penis. son got caught teaching this to another child and when I confronted him he finally broke down and told me it was his cousin (my sisters son) who had taught this to him. When It was discussed with my sister of course she was upset.
973741 tn?1342342773 Medication is amazing for treating add and adhd. But what about therapy? Do you think it helps? Lots of kids with add and adhd have social skills issues, organizational skills issues, self esteem issues. What could therapy do to help them? It's often an additional expense for parents or to the patient if they are an adult. Is it worth it?

Avatar f tn with a learning disability (not severe) and was diagnosed with adhd (although I am not really sure if this is his condition). He recently went of his Stratera because of side effects and he was doing better in school after he went off. He used to chew on his shirt in 4th grade but it didnt last long and I never thought of it as a huge problem. Recently however, he has taken up this habit again. Every day he chews his shirt to the point that the fabric is destroyed and unwearable.
Avatar f tn Play therapy is used with younger children to alleviate behavioral and emotional problems through the language of play. Since younger kiddos cannot generally verbalize what they are experiencing, how they express difficulties comes out in different play themes. There are different theories as to how to approach the play therapy.
