Avatar n tn He has been a heavy bed wetter his entire life though in the past 6 months or so it has become more and more infrequent to the point where he only has an accident once every few weeks now. My wife has mentioned ADHD before but my son has never been hyperactive in any way. In fact its just the opposite, he is beyond mellow. Recently I read about ADHD PI and this seems to describe my son perfectly.
Avatar n tn My 7 year old daughter with ADHD (medicated with Daytrana 10mg) has been displaying somewhat strange behaviors for the past few months. First, she has been shoving stuffed animals down her pants in her sleep. Second, she has been having regular potty accidents and is unaware that she had an "accident" until someone points it out to her.
Avatar f tn My son has ADHD. We have been successfully treating it with medication for 6 yrs now. A therapist recently said that ADHD has been proven to actually be an allergy to chlorine. I have tried researching this online but have not found anything that supports this. I have read where drinking filtered water that has removed the chlorine is helpful but this is the closest I have found online that ADHD might actually be an allergy to chlorine.
Avatar f tn I have been with my husband for 10 yrs, married 7. Our 5 yr old son was diagnosed with ADHD a few years ago. We also found out that my husband also has ADHD. My mother in law never told my husband that he was diagnosed with it as a child till we found out about our son. He's been trying different meds, but nothing seems to be working. Lately we've been fighting a lot. He's been very selfish the last few years to the point where it's been pushing us apart.
Avatar m tn I have never really thought about ADD/ADHD however as I didn't realize some of the issues were associated with the disorder. I would like to get peoples thoughts as to whether or not this list of symptoms seems to fit the bill for ADHD, or if perhaps it is something else. I clearly plan to see a doctor soon but would still like to gather as much information and ideas as possible. My earliest memories of these symptoms come from my elementary-middle school years.
Avatar f tn I'm 32 years old and have struggled with both Adhd and weight problems. I went to see my doctor and he put me on phentermine 37.5mg once a day and topamax 23 mg in half doeses twice dailey. I also take adderall 20mg twice Dailey. I asked him if theses two meds who interact with one another and his response was no . I guess my question is how do I safely spread them out during the day. It seems I can't get it right because when I take either or I get very anxious .

Avatar f tn What does the neurotransmitter GABA have to do with EDS or narcolepsy or ADHD (inattentive type) or bipolar II?
Avatar f tn however large ones can cause hydrocephalus, behavior anomalies, seizures, headaches, ADHD, and even paralysis of one half of the body. http://en.wikipedia.
Avatar n tn Well, its most common use is for anxiety - which is fairly common for people with ADHD. You can read more about it here - What I don't understand is why your doctor didn't explain this to you. Especially if you are prone to anxiety, the not knowing only makes it worse.
Avatar m tn A very good question as it all depends on the user of the medication. If a person has ADHD, researchers believe that the problem lies in the catecholamine-rich fronto-subcortical system of the brain. (http://www.help4adhd.
1511164 tn?1301584382 So I decided to post this same question on Yahoo Answers and found out that it is most like OCD, and I do have OCD http://*****************/question/index?qid=20110213042818AAeq89e Here what I got from wiki under Tourette Syndrome: Under Characteristic I found: "Among patients whose symptoms are severe enough to warrant referral to clinics, obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) and attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) are often associated with Tourette's.

Avatar f tn my son is autistic and adhd. He is also very anxious. He has had brain seizures when he was very young that seem to have subsided. He is 11 now and since the age of five has complained when caught killing an animal or hurting other children that, "venom made me do it". He has dropped the "venom" but still sees something and it has a man's voice that tells him to do bad things. Is he possibly pre-schizophrenic also?
1059647 tn?1255039454 Hey Mightymouse, The only person with a "deficient" is the psyc who did the testing, took his money and ran. You should have gotten a much better explanation than that. First check out this post. Look for the Sept 22 post at 9:39 and compare her sons test results to yours. Look familiar?
Avatar n tn However, there are cases where some develop conditions such as attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), obsessive-compulsive disorders, depression and anxiety disorders. Aside from these, and to the best of my knowledge, no other significant brain damage occurs with this condition. You can consult your neurologist and ask him/her regarding this.
1194973 tn?1385507504 // I think it would be good for your husband to see a doctor but the above thinks might be able to give you an idea what might be wrong and how you can help him. But be careful not to self diagnose as only a psychiatrist can do that.
Avatar f tn // Remember to check out the comments as Dr. Parker answers them with good info. This should help answer a lot of your questions.
Avatar f tn I used to feel the way you do until I had a child with ADHD. My brother (now 39) was ADHD growing up, but never formally diagnosed. He is an alcoholic and has destroyed his life because he chose to self medicate. He has been labeled as an alcoholic and a loser. I think many people who did not get on the medication that might have helped them ended up being addicted to drugs and other destructive behaviors. My child got on medication at 5.

Avatar f tn // You probably should read the link. I kind of get the feeling that the two meds should not be combined. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn A few other thoughts in that some of this may be related to the ADHD. In the book, "The ADD/ ADHD Answer book," by Susan Ashley, she says (p 72) that the rates of daytime wetting are 3X higher for boys and the rate of nighttime wetting is 5X higher. " It is not unusual to wet the bed until 10 to 12 years old." And bowel movements are also more prevalent in kids with ADHD. Part of the problem is that when off the medication, the self control is less.

1390055 tn?1365618655 that medical marijuana actually helped people, especially those diagnosed with ADHD like me, AND autistic children. I even remember reading this last month: Upon asking her if it will ever be legalized for medicinal use in the state, she said no. I mean, what options do I have left anymore at this point?
