Avatar n tn Amino acids, from which protein is made, are an integral element since amino acids and essential fatty acids are both needed to work in the body. Therefore, adding quality protein is a key in Attention Deficit Disorder nutrition. Attention Deficit and hyperactive people can greatly reduce the level of unfocused or misdirected energy simply by starting the day with a protein based breakfast.

Having said that, omega 3's certainly wouldn't hurt to try!

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – sometimes referred to as Attention Deficit Disorder – is as widespread as the refined foods and the food additives that play such a major role in causing ADD / ADHD. Once you have read the information below you will realise that Ritalin and other ADD / ADHD medications achieve nothing more than the suppression of symptoms.
Avatar m tn A new study suggests that pesticides in foods may be putting kids at higher risk for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD. But before you ban all produce that could be laced with pesticides from your home for fear of an ADHD diagnosis in your children, hear what experts are saying about it. Then consider ways you can limit your kids’ pesticide exposure.
Avatar n tn Dexedrine is one of several medications for the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.
Avatar n tn As you know, the stimulant medications (like Dexedrine) that are used as 'front-line' treatments for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder may potentiate the appearance of motor tics. Usually, once the medication has been discontinued, the tic will gradully diminish and even disappear. But this can take a little time, so be patient. If the behavior does not go away, a consult with a pediatric neurologist would be a sensible intervention.

Avatar n tn Dear Vicki, While Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder has been ruled out, it remains to be determined what is to account for your son's behavior. At the very least, you and the school need systematic methods of responding to the behavior. The wise course is to obtain a pediatric mental health or behavioral health evaluation. This will pinpoint the diagnosis and delineate a plan for treatment.
Avatar m tn As many as 50%–80% of children with Tourette's disorder have some symptoms of attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder(ADHD), including a short attention span, restlessness, poor concentration, and diminished impulse control. On average, ADHD will manifest two and a half years before the tics appear. A dual diagnosis of ADHD and tic disorder is associated with more severe tics and greater social impairment than for tic disorder by itself.
Avatar m tn ” The children who took the essential fatty acid supplements also had an unexpected—but significant improvement in their relationships with their parents. Giving young children with attention deficit disorder, hyperactivity, and learning disabilities at least 2 teaspoons of cod liver oil along with 300 milligrams of GLA (and 200 IU of vitamin E as mixed tocopherols) daily is very safe and will likely achieve the same or even better results observed by Dr. Portwood and her team.
Avatar n tn Metadate, Ritalin, and Concerta are stimulant medications employed in the treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. They all are forms of methylphenidate and have essentially the same side effect profile.
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 n tn He is currently in his second year of immunotherapy maintenance (monthly shots) for his allergies and has responded well to this treatment. My son also was diagnosed with ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) in the fall of last year 2008. While my son has received therapy for controlling his emotions and anger, I further have discussed moving him off Advair and back to Flovent over the next month out of concern for side effects of the drug.
Avatar f tn What to do after you just say NO to Ritalin when a child has been diagnosed with attention deficit disorder (ADD) or some other learning disability. And even if you don’t, ADD is a growing problem that you should be aware of some estimate that as many as one in five U.S. children are on Ritalin that’s 6 million kids.
Avatar n tn If Ritalin is being recommended, you can infer that a diagnosis of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is present. Your son's behavior is more extreme than can be explained by ADHD alone, though that may well be part of the problem. Perhaps it is reasonable to proceed with a trial on stimulant medication at a low dose and see if it benefits your son. In terms of managing the behavior, a very sound plan is detailed in the book SOS: Help for Children.
