416668 tn?1241746394 Well i can understand how anxious and frustrating you might be as you cannot concentrate on your daily routine and at work place. Dexedrine does cause side effects like other drugs and you can go through in detail through this link Although there is no specific study to prove the fact eyelid twitches as caused due to drug, it might be possible as irritation to nerve or muscle.
Avatar f tn Are you asking what does or what should the med do for you? Or perhaps asking about side effects? Or how the meds work on someone with ADD as compared to a person without ADD? If so more info is needed. First everybody reacts a little bit differently to the meds. But there are a variety of meds out there in both the stimulant and non stimulant form and they all do things a bit differently. I can give you a site that covers all of them, but its kind of technical.
Avatar f tn etc, provigil, other meds....and of course xyrem. I take dextroamphetamine daily, even though it does litte...if anything......I have tried capsules and tablets...crushed them in applesauce, etc....everything my neurologist (who is the 'main doctor' for sleep problems in my area) has suggested.....I literally can't keep going like this......I am the single mom of a six year old and I cannot get anything done because of my tiredness/fatigue......
Avatar n tn Now she is taking 40mg of Vyvanse. It seems to work as well as Adderall and has no GI side effects however, she now does this hand movement thing....its not a tick, and seems to be both voluntary and involuntary. Like sometimes she is aware of it but is drivin to do it subconsiously. She places her hands(both of them), palm facing outwards, to her mouth and wiggles all ten of her fingers rapidly into the air.
Avatar f tn Now I need to decide what I am comfortable to start taking to deal with the ADD, as it is causing problems at work (no focus, scattered, etc.) Does anyone have any suggestions as to what meds that they were successful with (I know all meds effect people differently, but so I have an idea of whats out there). At my next appt I need to go back to my doctor and discuss what I would like to try. Thanks for all suggestions!
Avatar f tn Yet since we're all so different what doesn't work for one can do wonders for the next person. At least Amantadine is very cheap, so it wouldn't be a big investment to give it a try.
Avatar f tn I Have adderall but I am also afraid that when I have to go back to work in three days I will need the adderall just like I needed the vicodin which will lead me to relapse. I have a very busy life and the reason I have not quit before is that I never have time to be sick. I know it is a dumb excuse but it is the truth. If anyone has any advise I would really appreciate it.
Avatar f tn He can concentrate and is able to finish is work where as before no matter how much time he had it wasn't enough. He is making friend and keeping them. I would tell you to talk to your doctor and talk to other parents of children with ADD. A great place to meet the would be at any CHADD meeting. I really found that they both offered me great support and really helped me to stop doing what I thought was best and do what was best for my child with regard to the medication.

Avatar f tn non-expert doctors think one of the lower doses or lower number of doses should work fine for anybody. (For some people a low dose *does* work fine.) They also think anybody who thinks the low dose isn't doing the job and a higher dose would do better ... is a drug abuser and/or addict.
Avatar f tn Kids have stress and anxiety and don't no how to deal with it like Adults do. Where and what does his Dad have to say about all of this?
Avatar n tn A thorough evaluation should occur. He may not display any condition that warrants use of medication. If he does display, for example, ADHD, use of the medicine might be determined by how much the condition is influencing his life in school. If the activity level or inattention is manageable and is not a significant impediment, there is no need to use medication.
10907499 tn?1413742644 So we tried Ritalin and Dextroamphetamine but find that I still have problems. It's not a daily problem that affects things I've known to do on a daily basis and some other daily functions that don't follow a specific plan. More detailed, I can remember to get dressed in the morning all the way up to changing a plan and doing something I don't ordinarily do daily such as finding my way to a new restaurant I'd heard about- a new learned and different function.
Avatar f tn Does Concerta really work? My son has been on it for ADD and ODD since the summer. Since school started he has been unable to focus and has had problems following directions/instructins in class. He doesn't listen to the teachers and argues alot. I'm at my wits end and dont' know what to do at this point. I'm just trying to keep him from getting put out of school.
Avatar f tn Hi Barbie, To solve your puzzle about being outgoing etc at work and otherwise outside work let me say I was like that. I could walk in the door to work and be who I'd always been there. Cool, calm, happy, on top of it all. Walk out after work and I was a mess. I eventually solved the puzzle. It's this simple. At home I was in a world of relationships I had never mastered. I'd been let down over the years and lacked trust and confidence in myself.
Avatar n tn He doesn't have to tap prior to ever word, but he does it 4-5 times a paragraph. He does not have any other facial or other body tics or stimming. Any ideas?
572651 tn?1333939396 I hope she does what I asked because I gave her all the info she needed. I am waiting to see how it turns out. In the meantime, I have found a nice discount with GoodRx. They have Nuvigil coupons for both 150 mg and 250 mg. Both coupons show about $536. I even checked with my pharmacy and they said that is correct. Tell your doctor what your plan is. Even if you are taking 150 mg ask him/her to prescribe 250 mg. This way you can cut your pills in half and they will last two months.
Avatar f tn So I went to see both my therapist & psych docs today and Updated them everything that's been going on in the month since I've seen them. One being me 4 day relapse back to vicodin. They were of course disappointed, but concerned for me. They asked how these wd's were going & I said not as bad as the first time, but still not great either. However one thing I mentioned was my lack of energy (which I know is common with this being my 2nd ct off vicodin).
707438 tn?1240963240 Then in the week that follows, you try the skill and keep track of how you do. Then you share how you did at the beginning of the next group and listen to everyone else. It gave me perspective, helping me to see that I am not alone. And it helped me to learn skills that have allowed me to do a better job of calming myself, managing my impulsivity, etc. I cannot say enough about how much DBT helped me. There were a lot of other diagnoses in my group but also 3 or 4 people with ADD alone.
990354 tn?1307136486 Hey I am worried about my sister! She is on Vyvanse right now at thiry mgs but does NOT take it daily. Her husband takes twenty mgs of Adderall daily, and sometimes she will take an adderall instead of a vyvanse. Is this safe?? I don't think she is taking them at the same time but, is it safe for her to take an adderall on occasion? She claims the adderall gives her more energy than the vyvanse so she takes it when she has a night that she is working late and so on.
Avatar n tn Volunteer at school and find out what is really going on in the classroom. How many kids are in the class? Is the teacher overwhelmed? Does she like kids? Does she like boys? Is the teacher consistent in keeping the kids in line? Is she skillful with kids of that age? Does she have age-appropriate expectations? Is she boring? What percent of the class is labled for Title One? What percent of the Title One students are boys?
Avatar m tn Hello everyone, my name is Andrew and I'm from western MD. On January, 8, 2016 my methadone clinic prematurely discharged me due to me getting a little angry with "their" idea of how i should taper down my dose. The doctor, nurses, and I had somewhat heated discussions on the topic twice before and i thought it was understood that i know my body better then anyone else and i should be able to control my taper the way i feel necessary.
193137 tn?1367883663 Without these, medications alone cannot work, Hinshaw said. More than 4 million children in the United States have been diagnosed with ADHD. Compared to their non-ADHD peers, children with ADHD suffer lower grades and achievement scores, and higher dropout rates, the study points out. To help with attention and focus, just over half of them use medications such as methylphenidate and dextroamphetamine, which go by such trade names as Ritalin, Concerta and Adderall.
Avatar n tn And as mentioned, detox does not prevent relapse... a committment to a recovery plan is how that is done. Hope I have helped a bit.
Avatar n tn I got a call saying he was sorry and that my son EEG Didn't come back normal and that he was sending us to see a Neurologist and that Doctor was not nice and wanted to know how I didn't know my son was having Seizures. They put my son in the Hospital and did a Video EEG and stared him on medicine to try and stop the Seizures. It was while my son was in the Hospital that another Doctor told me that the drugs could have cause my son to start having Seizures.
649926 tn?1297661380 I am torn as to whether or not to call the doctor because I'm afraid that they will just take me off of it and while I hate how physically sick I am feeling, I do like being able to focus and not feel like a scatter brained dumb dumb. Do the side effects get better? What experiences have you "guys" had with this pill? Thanks for sharing!
Avatar n tn Hope you can get COBRA or disability. If he has to be off work, this might actually work in favor of health recovery right at this time. Getting laid off is very seldom convenient. I can remember when "laid off" meant something temporary, and after a slow time people were called back... the good old days. Best wishes to you and your family.
Avatar n tn feeling doesn't occur. I would encourage you to take christie2004's advice and work the dosage up. It seems to be a better solution than dextroamphetamine.
