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 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 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.
Avatar f tn Hello, Your child’s symptoms are suggestive of ADHD(attention deficit hyperactivity disorder). Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurobehavioral developmental disorder and is characterized by a persistent pattern of impulsiveness and inattention, with or without a component of hyperactivity.Symptoms of ADHD are impulsiveness,inattention, aggression, frequent temper tantrums, and hyperactivity.

I have (in the 3 plus years on this site) never seen a post by a parent saying any additional diet change made a difference (if they had a normal diet). Having said that, omega 3's certainly wouldn't hurt to try!

Avatar n tn I don’t think that her stubborn nature is linked with any neurological disorder here since it could be a normal phenomenon of an ADHD (attention deficit hyperactive disorder) child who reacts quite differently in such situation due to poor attention span. 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.
Avatar n tn But if the teacher is noting that your son is beyond the normal spectrum in this regard he may well have a neurologically-based attention disorder (such as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) that requires treatment.
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 n tn _ Carrie, Adderall is a combination of 4 amphetamine compounds, often reserved for second line treatment of Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), when Ritalin is not effective. It generally stays active in the body for about 12 hours, compared to 4-6 hours for Ritalin. Late evening doses should be avoided because of possible insomnia as a side effect. It is important that you discuss any change in your treatment plan with your doctor. This response is for general information only.
Avatar f tn If he truly displays Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, and the condition is interfering with his successful management of his school responsibilities, medication such as Ritalin (or another psychostimulant medication) might well assist him. The key is for him to undergo a thorough evaluation and not rush into a plan for pharmacological treatment.
Avatar n tn If a child has certain conditions, such as Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder, working memory is often impaired. When you give him directions, be sure he is next to you and that you establish eye contact. Then, have him repeat the directions before he proceeds to execute them.
Avatar m tn However, it is often present with varying degree of mental retardation and or autism spectrum disorder or attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Hence, a complete evaluation of this is necessary. While noise making could be an attention seeking activity, it may also be a part of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Please discuss with your son’s doctor. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you.
Avatar f tn First, arrange an evaluation for Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder - his symptoms, in your brief description, point in that direction. Second, your behavior management skills need improvement. Read Lynn Clark's book SOS Help for Parents and follow the methods he delineates (see www.sosprograms.com).
Avatar n tn A possibility of behavioral problems such as anti-social personality disorder, or ADHD (attention deficit hyperactivity disorder) may also come into play. I suggest you have him checked by a neurologist to narrow down the possibilities. Regards.
