Common Questions and Answers about Adhd without hyperactivity


Avatar f tn She can perform many tasks without problem and does like doing crafts but also I can walk out of the room and she is painting the table or ruining something. An example would be a brand new full shampoo bottle that she knows should not be dumped in the tub of bath water because she was punished several times for doing so but I leave the bathroom for one minute and the whole bottle is gone and then she says mommy I think the shampoo is empty.
Avatar f tn Is it possible for a 51 yr old to be diagnosed as ADHD ( slight hyperactivity, more ADD )? Supposedly, before my 7th Birthday I had a photogenic memory. Shortly before that birthday I was bitten by a Copperhead, was given the anti-venom in small doses, almost lost my leg and life, and stayed hospitalized for 3 weeks. One week after being discharged, I had a Grand-Mal Seizure that lasted 24 hours before it could be stopped.
5856747 tn?1403352282 Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder. ADHD. Prevalence. Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder or ADHD is today largely accepted as a bona fide psychiatric or neurobehavioral disorder affecting some 5-7% of children and adolescents. The prevalence will depend on the diagnostic criteria used. It was once thought to be three times commoner in boys than in girls though not all studies support that figure. About 50% of ADHD children will carry the condition into adulthood.
Avatar n tn Impacted bowels, as well as many other conditions that may or may not be behavioral related, are teachable and trainable, without the use of ADHD labels and the associated legalized drug dealers behind the movement. Just a matter of parenting, similar to dog training.
707438 tn?1240963240 I still, at age 27, have difficulty with impulsiveness and hyperactivity. I have times of trouble interrupting, arguing, talking super fast without a breath, fidgiting, urge to dance around wherever I am (just when with a friend though, but it sure annoys her, heh.) Yep. It's still a problem for me. Yet on the other side, I tend to be sluggish, tired, sleepy, and I'm still looking for the cause of that.
Avatar f tn have a hyperactive 5 and a half yr. old boy. Hyper since birth.Changing diapers was difficult. I am used to this and it has gotten a bit easier to manage since then. Alot of his behavior seems like ADHD,the type that is hyper but "takes everything in". He never liked loud music,covers his ears. And also complained once of lights being too bright at Gymnastics class (which he DID NOT LIKE). He will interact with other children and isn't shy once he gets comfortable.

Avatar n tn Your daughter with ADHD may have attention difficulty, hyperactivity and impulsivity. Therefore, by attention deficit she does not listen to what is said to her. In handling and managing your daughter just tries to be specific & clear in your instructions. In addition, if this persists please consult a child psychologist in order to understand appropriate treatment line. Hope this helps.
Avatar f tn Hi, Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder, affecting about 3-5% of the world's population under the age of 19.It typically presents itself during childhood, and is characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity, as well as forgetfulness, poor impulse control or impulsivity, and distractibility.
565675 tn?1216500246 A month ago we had her see a doctor about having ADHD. She was diagnosed and put on 5mg. of adderall xr once a day. Lately she has been running away, like down the street, to another street in the neighborhood, or a neighbors. She won't come or respond when I call for her so I usually have no idea where she went. She just runs out of the house without telling me, and I have a 3 month old so my attention cannot be on her every minute.
Avatar n tn He likes things that spin-- I think thats ok, too-- it when thats ALL HE likes and when he does not want to play with ANYTHING else that you have a problem. Singulair-- most definitely allergy/ asthma medications can cause hyperactivity. Not sure about its dangers as previous post mentioned -- but it absolutely can cause behavior changes in children. Without question.
Avatar f tn Compare the drugs Vynase to Intuniv- VS Adderal XR( I know that Adderal XR is a stimulant drug) Please advise as my son has been on Adderal XR since age 5 now 12, how long can a stimulant drug be used? Without Adderal XR his life is miserable for him ( I do not care about myself but what is best for the child) although he it better able to control impulse activity ,hyperactivity and aggressiveness but when medication wears off life get hard to manage.
1883398 tn?1320768071 She doesn’t do these things intentionally or to be bad, she is very loving, loves to cuddle, and is always apologizing for her actions later without my even mentioning it. I do not doubt she has the signs and symptoms of ADHD due to her EXTREME hyperactivity. She also has a very nasal voice that family members have pointed out to me (of course I know, I am just used to it.) There is a family history or Tourrets.
Avatar n tn If he can manage without the medication, it makes sense to proceed without it. If, at any point in the future, the severity of the symptoms and the degree of impairment argue for reinstatement of medication, it's always available.
Avatar n tn My son is almost 12. He was diagnosed with ADHD when he was seven. His un-ability to concentrate and his uncontrollable urge to move all the time, made it difficult for him at school. He would get teased allot and his grades were suffering. Until he told me he wanted to die because he was tired of being teased and being different from the others. That's when I got him to a child psychologist. He HAD the eye blinking tick, and he would off climbed on the walls if he could off.
Avatar n tn The child with ADHD may engage in behavior that can lead to harmful consequences without being aware of the danger, whereas the child with bipolar disorder is risk seeking. 9. Bipolar children tend to have a strong early sexual interest and behavior. 10.
Avatar n tn // Meds might well help you - or not. There really is only one way to find out. If you do have ADHD you won't get dependent on them. If you don't have ADHD, they can be seriously addicting. For that reason alone (plus a bunch or others), you need to see a doctor that can help you. I would try to find a psychologist or psychiatrist that specials in ADHD. Stay away from your general MD.
Avatar f tn Some children have a modest degree of hyperactivity and it does not require treatment. But, if the hyperactivity is moderate-to-severe, you will not achieve success without medication. That is the frank reality. So, in part you are expecting to find some alternative, but there really is none. This is an instance when you should alter your expectations.
1116472 tn?1260078652 Almost always a person without ADHD will get high on adderall, while a person with ADHD will actually slow down and be able to concentrate. Your remarks seem like this may be how you reacted. Particularly since a person first going on speed tends to get a pretty good rush. However if they are on something else to calm them down or are physically huge, etc., they may not feel the effects as much - so this isn't 100% accurate. What you probably need to do is some more research into ADHD.
Avatar n tn So, while your son might indeed display the hyperactivity and impulsivity that are typical of Hyperactive/Impulsive ADHD, that is not the sole explanation of what is occurring. The severity of your son's behavior, and the fact that it is posing a major obstacle to his mastery of pre-school, invite an evaluation by a pediatric mental health professional (child psychiatrist, child psychologist, e.g.).
Avatar m tn SSRI medicines are hard to manage when I have severe hyperactivity and inattentiveness with ADHD, yet the SSRI seems to help in other areas that I mentioned. I have spoken to my psychiatrist about this a couple times, and he told me to try and time the doses between Dexedrine and Lexapro so I don't have too much Lexapro before trying to study, and try not to have too much Dexedrine close to bed.
Avatar n tn This week, I took our six year son for a neuro-psych evaluation and today we went for feed back. He has been diagnosed with ADHD which wasn't a big suprise to us. What has been shocking and hard to handle is his IQ score of 71. This is a low score, bordering on mental retardation from what we can tell. So, if a child has ADHD, I assume they won't test well in a neuro-psych evaluation? That being the case, what does that say about the IQ score?
Avatar m tn Stimulants Likely Behind ADHD-Obesity Link Megan Brooks March 17, 2014 Treating attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) with stimulants changes growth trajectories in childhood and is likely to be behind the reported association between ADHD and obesity, a new study suggests. The study showed that children with untreated ADHD or ADHD treated without stimulants had a faster increase in body mass index (BMI) than those without ADHD.

Another source which I think that you will find very interesting is this Utube video by a young lady with ADD in which she describes her situation and symptoms. Personally, I have found that frustration was a key factor in helping to identify a person with ADD.
Avatar n tn It is also thought to be a brain disorder due to a chemical imbalance in the brain and between 3 and 5 percent of children are thought to have ADHD. Furthermore, ADHD is characterized by hyperactivity (e.g. being too active, being fidgety, talking too much, being restless, or having your mind be always racing with thoughts); inattentiveness (e.g. difficulty paying attention, mind wandering, forgetting or losing things); and impulsivity (e.g.
Avatar f tn I went to the psyc to sort out my headaches and binge eating and guess what? Here I am ADHD inattentive (the lethargic daydreaming type without hyperactivity). I tried Ritalin but got a rash and chest pain so I am on Dex now and feeling grat so far. Good luck. I hope this gets sorted out for you.
1712422 tn?1443341101 Ok,so I know most kids are diagnosed with ADD/ADHD when they go to school. My child is 3 years old and is always "on the move"…she can't calm down or relax during the day and is constantly getting into trouble for things she knows she isn't supposed to get into or doesn't listen to instruction. n At night she is still energetic and could stay up till 3 a.m. if I let her. I don't know if the doctor will diagnose her or give her something to help her calm down and relax .
