Avatar n tn You sound like a very caring teacher and the short answer is yes. Because you are a teacher and not a doctor I'm sure you know you can only report symptoms. Tell the mom it doesn't look like the ADD you have seen in other kids but it looks like he just zones out. DO NOT bring up the surgery. Moms, in general, feel guilty enough already "blaming" her will not change anything.
Avatar f tn This may well indicate Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (the correct name for the condition). Arrange an evaluation with a pediatric menatl health clinician (such as a child psychiatrist or clinical psychologist).
Avatar f tn are there any side effects of taking Zoloft for that long that would cause attention deficit disorder in adults? It seems that I have a difficult time on occasion concentrating on one thing at a time therefore, creating a lack of confidence in those I communicate with. Your help would be appreciated.
Avatar f tn Ritalin is used to treat attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and narcolepsy (an uncontrollable desire to sleep). When given for attention deficit disorder, Ritalin should be an integral part of a total treatment program that includes psychological, educational, and social measures. Ritalin may also be used for other purposes not listed in this medication guide.

Avatar m tn I was hoping to have a tracker to monitor attention deficit disorder so I can keep record of specific days that are easier to focus vs. days that are nearly impossible and hopefully find a pattern. This way if there are particular days/weeks/months that I find myself in distraction land I can take special precautions to get more sleep, take meds, watch my diet closer, exercise more, ect... I think it would be a very valuable tool for anyone suffering from ADD. Thank you!

Avatar m tn t been paying attention, a new government study claims that kids taking pharmaceuticals to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) score higher on math and reading tests at the elementary school level. The study is thought to validate all of the claims that drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are reigning in and focusing the minds of the younger generation. I'm sorry, but I'm still not buying it. I've long been critical of the very concept of ADHD.
Avatar n tn These symptoms could be signs of mile autism, but they can also indicate Attention Deficit Disorder(ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD). If you continue to see these symptoms regularly I would consult your pediatrician. :) God Bless You.
Avatar n tn I am a patient who has Temporal Lobe Epilepsy(TLE)I would like to ask that does Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) have any relationship with TLE?Is there any correlation between this two sickness? If it does can I know how can I deal with this problem?
Avatar n tn Aguilar, Aggressive behavior is not a feature of Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. This is not to say that your daughter does not display ADHD, but only to point out that ADHD does not account for her aggressive posture. Even if your daughter displays ADHD (and she is really too young to be concluding such a diagnosis), her aggression needs to be managed.
Avatar n tn Diagnosing Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in adults can be quite difficult, especially if that diagnosis was not made earlier before the age of 7 years. Signs of ADHD in adults include inability to concentrate, difficulty in organizing and completing tasks, easy distractibility, and sudden decision making without a thought of the consequences.
Avatar n tn This can occur with mood disorders ( depression, bipolar disorder), ADD (attention deficit disorder) , drug abuse and several others. Personality disorders play a significant role in interpersonal relationships. It would be helpful to consider evaluation by a trained Mental Health Professional to rule out any psychiatric conditions. I wish you Good Luck. Sincerely HFHS-M.D.

Avatar n tn Hi, I wanted to know how appropiate it is to medicate a child with attention deficit disorder (non hyper) with Ritalin. I believe that Ritalin is recommended to ADHD children because it helps to control de hyperactivity but I don't know what benefits does it have with ADD children. Dear Yanira Figueroa: Yes, ritalin is used for both disorders. Ritalin helps a child focus. The lack of being able to focus on a topic or situation is common to both ADD and ADHD.
