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 f tn The short answer: There is no difference. Officially, only ADHD exists. It comes in three varieties: ADHD predominantly hyperactive, ADHD predominantly inattentive, and ADHD mixed type. In other words, you don't need to be hyperactive in order to be diagnosed as ADHD. The term ADD is merely a popular abbreviation frequently (mis)used to indicate that someone is inattentive and does not display symptoms of hyperactivity.
Avatar f tn The symptoms you describe are consistent with an Inattentive-type Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. The evaluation can be conducted by either a pediatric neurologist or a child psychiatrist.
1472248 tn?1292611095 From the symptoms described this looks to be attention deficit hyperactivity disorder rather than anything related to the previous episode of rolandic seizure. ADHD usually presents in early school years. The child can be either primarily inattentive, impulsive, hyperactive or emotionally unstable. The child often doesn’t seem to listen, is easily distracted, cant sit still and is fidgety, has angry outbursts, social loner, becomes very sensitive to criticism.
Avatar f tn I'm not privy to any scientific studies on the subject you have raised although I am sure they exist somewhere. So all I can offer here at this point is my own experience: I've had ADHD (predominantly inattentive type) since childhood, and BP2 since adolescence. Looking back from age 68 now, I would say that the ADHD has pretty well maintained the same level.
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 My son (who is 5) has just been diagnosed as having both attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and having PDD-NOS (pervasive development disorder--not otherwise specified).

However, there are or can be side effects - so Google whatever med you get and read about it. Usually the doctors start out with a small dosage and wait to hear back from the patient as to how it is working - so make sure you communicate with your doctor.
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 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.
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 n tn I wasn't diagnosed until recently, at the age of 45, but outwardly my symptoms look different as an adult than they did as a child (and yet nobody recognized it back then!). When I was young, I couldn't sit in a chair without jiggling my foot, for instance. My nerves were always on edge, and I wish I'd realized sooner how much good exercise could have helped. I exercise more and have a job now that has both brain work and physical labor.
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.
Avatar n tn It affects chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control. Adderall is used to treat narcolepsy and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder or ADD. It is not a narcotic although there are those who mistreat it for its affects. I'm pretty sure you'll be just fine for urine test and should not be affected by it at all.
