Although A.D.H.D is the diagnosis Dr. Anderson makes, he calls the disorder “made up” and “an excuse” to prescribe the pills to treat what he considers the children’s true ill — poor academic performance in inadequate schools. “I don’t have a whole lot of choice,” said Dr.
220090 tn?1379170787 Each time I took interferon, it left me with Attention Deficit Disorder that was long lasting. Each treatment seemed to be additive. After my last treatment that ended in 2008, I ended up with full blown ADD that made me impulsive and seriously detracted me to the point that I could not read and process anything that was very detailed. I spent much of my career managing large software projects, so I was very lucky this didn't happen until after I retired.
Avatar n tn Other times, an adult can either simply never been diagnosed as a child, or develop the disorder later on in life. Adult attention deficit disorder looks a lot like childhood attention deficit disorder. That shouldn’t come as a surprise, since the symptoms are largely the same.

Avatar m tn I have a brother that has been diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. He was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Disorder as a young child. Due to his impulsive behavior he made many bad choices, and he was disruptive. He seemed rebellious or vindictive when he could not have things done his way.

Avatar f tn She comes from a stable home with parents that love her, we give our children equal attention and do all the family things such as eat meals together at the table and take trips to the museum/exhibitions etc. Neither of our kids lack attention or discipline, Myself being the main disciplanary figure as I'm at home.

Avatar m tn You have certainly got a lot to be proud of given how hard it has been for you to deal with your depression, anxiety and frustration.

Avatar f tn Has anyone had issue with this. The symptoms I suffered after treatment were almost worst because caused such severe brain fog. It has been since August 2012 and I still cant handle my job, big crowds, loud voices, and am so disorganized and nervous I spend my day walking around looking for stuff. I feel like I am living in someone else's head. Totally not myself. My job is tedious and requires organization and I am scared if I go back to early they will fire me for incompetence.
Avatar n tn I did some research both online and from texts, including taking the WHO adult self-report scale for attention deficit disorder. I told my psychiatrist my situation and asked to be put on Strattera. It has had a marginal effect overall; we've slowly moved up the doses to the current 80mg. I understand that this is still only a moderate dose for this medication, but my hope for it having any lasting effect has faded.

163305 tn?1333672171 Even the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence guidelines, to which your report refers, do not question that attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is a “real” brain disorder, rather than a convenient way of labelling a child who is boisterous and disruptive in class. Ask paediatricians how often they saw children with “minimal brain dysfunction”, as ADHD was then known, in the 80s, and their answers range from one in 100 to one in 500.

Avatar f tn findings on the MRI of which I remained suspicious considering my debilitating symptoms. Shortly after, and with symptoms persisting, I located another neurologist to review the findings and evaluate me further. He ordered additional tests such as, evoked potentials, nerve conduction studies, and a skin grating test along with an MRI of my thoracic and concurred that no findings suggestive of MS were present but indicated he was suspicious of my symptoms. Again, this was all conducted in 2007.

Avatar f tn Click on the link - Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder - at the top of the page and you can get a quick general overview. And if you do go to see a doctor, it certainly wouldn't hurt to run general tests (well, the blood workup will hurt), to rule out other factors.

Avatar f tn Hi again. I had my daughter tested last Sept. for symptoms similar to what you've been feeling. ( by a nutritionist.

Avatar n tn He was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder and Generalized Anxiety. He is now 8 years old and with every year he has gained confidence, become less anxious, and the tics have now subsided almost completely. We still see a tic here and there (mostly neck jerking or blinking) especially when under stress, but almost never endless bouts every few seconds like when they first presented. And if you wondering yes, screen time was one of his triggers.
