Common Questions and Answers about Adhd wikipedia


Avatar n tn My 12 year old son has been diagnosed with ADHD, and my 15 year old son is possibly too. He has classic traits of ADHD but has never been told he has it.If you need any more information let me know. Thnaks in advance.
Avatar n tn Kind of puzzles me since these are pretty common tendencies among adults with ADHD who have not had any help. Anyway to answer your question. ADHD/ADD is hereditary. So there is a possible connection. However the key is Knowledge. Knowing what you got and how to deal with it - changes everything. Your dad easily could have gone through school at a time when there was little help - or had parents that didn't believe in things like ADHD.
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 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.
574118 tn?1305138884 I posted a question in the ADHD forum asking whether an ADHD can become manic, so perhaps my previous OCD was transformed into ADHD and not BP. Seemingly ADHD and BP are interwinned. Because if ADHD CAN turn manic so why not many diagnosed BP are not so and are rather ADHD. I remember once my pdoc said psychic illness come in a group of diseases. Apparently nobody knows. I'm really fed up. Here in the middle of nowhere where i live i even doubt pdocs heard of the term ADHD.
1198972 tn?1265236342 And looking at everything that is going on with children these days,with School ,home life,parents getting divorces and times be hard on everyone these days. There are other things that look like adhd ,but Doctors don't look at these things and Parents don't know about them. I know I didn't .Until now.
Avatar n tn I have also read a book on ADHD and they both have 15-16 out of 20 of the symptoms along with the sensory problems too.They have no respect for theyre own things as well as others. Heres a few things that I marked in the book.
Avatar f tn My four year old grandchild/fosterchild has been to the doctor and now take meds for ADHD. Frist was riddelen that did not work at all. New medication is Risperidone. No change has been noticed. This child before meds was pooping and peeing on her bedroom floor and even after meds. Im at my end and dont understand this kind of behavior.
696153 tn?1231609458 Someone was recommending it for my grandson with ADHD but I've never heard of it. I'm not about to give him something I know nothing about and I'm skeptical about some of the claims. On the other hand, if it isn't harmful it might be worth a try.
Avatar f tn First I'd like to find out the side effects and potential health risks. Is it one that can lead to TD? I did a wikipedia entry and didn't see that listed, but I saw fatigue and potential effects on blood pressure be a potential bother. If it doesn't have adverse reactions, it may be useful. I'm a bit concerned on the blood pressure part. For me, I have normal to low blood pressure, so dropping it lower probably isn't a good thing.
Avatar m tn Hello, I've been prescribed Dextroamphetamine 5mg, 3 times a day for my ADHD. I've been using it for a couple days now and noticed something weird. When I desolve the tablet in a glass of water, and then drink the water the Dextroamphetamine will start to work much faster, and 2-3 times stronger also my pupils will dilate for a while..But when I just take the tablet orally without desolving it into water, it will work but not so strong and also my pupils dont dilate....
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 m tn Well, Strattera is "Classified as a norepinephrine (noradrenaline) reuptake inhibitor, atomoxetine is approved for use in children, adolescents, and adults. However, its efficacy has not been studied in children under six years old.
Avatar n tn It is also used off-label for a variety of indications, including attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), schizophrenia, phantom limb syndrome, paroxysmal extreme pain disorder, and post-traumatic stress disorder".
704262 tn?1247678238 I recall a canadian medical booklet sent to me by a lady here stating that OCD, PD and ADHD are gateways to BP. My pdoc told me OCD is a step which can morph into BP like a bus stop with the latter its terminus. Some here object to this view. Upon much reflexions, I came to identify my OCD as psychosis and not OCD, i.e.

11099322 tn?1415290528 I want to get rid of the ADHD for good along with the chronic fatigue. The depression is manageable with wellbtib and my mood and obsessive compulsive disorder is manageable with the Zoloft. Bouts of schizophrenia are rare and usually occur when I am over stimulated on medications. My father suggested Androgel for low testosterone levels and said it helps with thee production of endorphins.
Avatar m tn * Be easily distracted, miss details, forget things, and frequently switch from one activity to another * Have difficulty focusing on one thing I can't just do something at once. Like I can't work without listening to music or having the TV on, and likewise I can't just sit down watch TV or a film without something else to keep me occupied too.
12880268 tn?1427640375 A couple months ago, I was prescribed Vyvanse for ADHD/Low motivational drive & concentration issues. My doctor started me on 30mg of Vyvanse to be taken once in the morning. The first day I took it my energy and focus level shot up to what must be considered "normal" because I could actually get out of bed and focus in my classes! It was amazing. But, after that first day, nothing. After about 2 weeks of trying it out, it almost felt like I was taking a sugar pill.
Avatar f tn I have a 15 yr old stepson, that has been living with us since he was 7. He has ADD/ADHD, Noonans syndrom, and now diagnosed with Asperger. It's like walking on eggs with him, one week doing well, the next all hell breaks loose He lies all the time doesn't hand in assighments in school, my husband and I don't know how to deal with this anymore.he'll pick at his flesh til he bleeds He'll be defiant when he gets caught in his lies and then I'll have **** in his underwares thrown in his draw.etc.
Avatar n tn (There is no family medical information, however we did adopt his older brother who shares the same biological mother, he has no problems but ADHD). About 3 years ago my son was diagnosed with migraine headaches, he takes medication daily for this and he also takes meds for ADHD. My son’s school also wishes to test him for Aspurgurs (sp) a form of Autism. Last week I took my son to the ER due to a migraine and severe vomiting.
Avatar m tn I feel that I am lost. For my whole life, especially now, I always felt that something was really missing. I got really depressed in high school, and I have always doubted that I had any kind of genetic disorder, or one that I developed over time. Just recently, I was wondering "what the hell is wrong with me and how can I end this? (not as in suicide)".
322138 tn?1306246734 I am 24 right now and after I came across the possiblity that I might have it, I read about it as much as I can on Wikipedia and everywhere on the Internet and I seem to have most of the symptoms associated with it.
Avatar n tn When my daughter was 3 she was diagnosed adhd, from there odd, and most likely bipolar also with depression. My whole thing is my daughter has never had a chance to see who she is without these meds, and she cant be any worse off than she is on them. When i telll them somethings going on they up the dosage saying it hasnt reached theraputic levals. Ive done some research and people talk really bad about these meds. Thanks for the input.

Avatar n tn 60 minutes prior my blood pressure was 119/68 and heart rate of 54 bpm. I take dexamphetamine IR for my ADHD so I take vital signs such as BP and heart rate prior to and after taking my dose. At this point I realized I also had a fever and I developed moderate chest pain with tightness. I immediately took my BP and pulse which showed my pulse at 196 and BP of 189/112. I almost collapsed when I saw these readings and somehow managed to call an ambulance.
