How do you cope with a short attention span?

Yes, actually… there’s quite a bit you can do. And doing that is really important to many aspects of your life.

The ability to focus your mind is like a muscle in many ways — if it isn’t exercised, it tends to become weak. There’s a near explosion of Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) among both children and adults today… a predictable consequence of the sheer rate of change in modern times and the widespread presence of multiple sources of mental stimulation: 500 channels of television, magazines, books, video games, stress from work, life challenges, and of course the Big Kahuna of ADD: the Internet.

None of these stimulation sources are good or bad in and of themselves, but their omnipresence in our lives produces new challenges for the mind: a human mind simply cannot drink deeply from a “firehose” of stimulation, information, entertainment, and distractions. It saturates quickly and loses its sensitivity, it’s ability to create and imagine, it’s capacity for subtlety and multi-perspectival thinking.

Our emotional, mental, social, and spiritual development all depend heavily on being able to slow down and “absorb and integrate” our experience. Our experience is sort of like firewood: in order to make use of it, we have to burn it up. “Burning it up” means paying attention to it, experiencing it, BEING with it — feeling the feelings and being aware of the thoughts, noticing connections, sensing subtle relationships.

This “fire of awareness” is the natural capacity of the mind to be present in the moment and flow forward with the movement of time. When we do this, a natural kind of absorption and integration occurs, in which we learn from our experiences and synthesize ever-greater “wholes” out of the random pieces and bits remembered, thought, and felt. This process takes time, and most importantly, it takes attention.

So how does one develop this muscle of attention? With lots of time and effort, spent in the right kind of exercise. (Sorry, there are no shortcuts.) All approaches that work depend on repetitively interrupting the tendency to get “lost in thought”. “Awareness practice” is the proper name for these approaches — meditation being the most well-known variation. Typically the student is instructed to sit still and upright (on a cushion, or a chair) and attend to their breath: just the simple in and out of air in the lungs or through the nose, etc. Just sit there, and be aware — don’t get lost in thought: if thoughts arise, just acknowledge them and then return your attention to your breath. If you find yourself lost in thought, just acknowledge that, notice what the thoughts are, and then return to the breath.

This sounds really simple. And in a way, it is. But it’s devilishly difficult to do — because that muscle of attention is very weak for most of us. Almost any thought that arises is more tempting and attractive than following our own breath in and out… and like a junkie sighting his favorite dealer, the attention will be automatically drawn toward the stimulation. So just like building a physical muscle, mastery only comes with ongoing and regular practice.

I usually recommend that people start with 5 minutes a day and work up to 30 minutes a day — 30 minutes of “time out” to allow the mind to integrate a whole day’s worth of inattention and distraction. Even that isn’t really adequate to burn it all up, but it does make a big difference over a sustained period. After a few months of daily practice, it’s common for people to start noticing changes which are obviously attributable to their meditation practice — sudden insights that seem to come out of nowhere, a deeper ability to relax and enjoy life, heightened sensory awareness, etc.

If practice persists for a number of years, profound transformations begin to occur in your personality, worldview, and values. These transformations are not the result of being “taught” something by some teacher (although a teacher is helpful), nor are they the result of learning some new ideas. They’re the result of your own mind discovering and integrating the fragments of knowledge which it didn’t even realize were already on hand. It’s the deepening of one’s own self-understanding, which pulls in everything one has learned about life in the process.

Here’s how I like to think of it: consider that your assignment is to sit quietly for 30 minutes and just be satisfied with the moment, without getting lost in thought. It’s really quite pleasant when you can do that. Of course, most of us CAN’T do that, and that’s the whole point — whatever beliefs, attitudes, or mental habits are preventing you from just sitting there quietly and being satisfied are the same things that are preventing you from experiencing life as whole, complete, and satisfying. So if you can’t sit and be satisfied — sit and observe. Be aware, study, and experience the source of your dissatisf

adhd epilepsy

adhd epilepsy

My son has been diagnosed with epilepsy to the general, he would be eligible. SSI?

My son has been in phenobarbatrol. About a year, he was already in the Depakote. For Lamotragin, keppra, and now he is. 6 We are currently having problems with his own behavior in school and at home. I know that most of the behavioral problems of his drug addiction. The school sent home a journal about his behavior. One day he will be under the table and jump to another day. To sleep, he was bouncing off the walls of his letarally have trouble focusing on work that has been. addgitated a recent blood work shows his white blood cell count is way down and his liver functions are really high. What does this mean for my son to do. I have been told we are entitled to. SSI, how do I know? Children with epilepsy may remain in what is often treated by the school as a child with a disability or not? The school my son had to pull him out of regular classes for his safety. pined a note on his shirt, and since that date. One of them out for my son's epilepsy, they have been treated at a different him. I should have a test for me for ADHD, Dyslexia, or?

I do not know how he is. The seizure, but he should see a neurologist and psychiatrist. It does not hurt to get a second opinion if you have any questions. If your doctor recommends medication too. But the two are not so bad. It is a common problem with the drug. Side effects can be very scary, especially with children. He sleepy because of the drug, which is very normal and natural. It is very difficult to focus on those drugs. Mood swings after the seizures are not uncommon either. Often, patients with epilepsy experience depression. It is a very painful experience in the human body. The brain may be going through the "Shift" or any kind of significant change. One that is jam-packed neurologist, described a "cycle" of electrical signals. When there is a "shortage" path that can not be used. However, the human body that the brain is designed to find alternative routes. I will soon be able to find a new path. Thus, tissue damage, it seems that quite a few children and they seem perfectly normal. Depending on how it affects the brain differently to chemicals in the body that The result is a mood or the other. Of the brain such as memory. I've seen it happen to some of the memory, and while some of the decline in the ability of memory. At least (long term). It's a strange thing. There are lots of traditional and stigma might be teachers who may not want to put in the effort. I do not think that the "label", he is good for the mind of a child and I will discuss with the doctor. It may seem that some of the drugs that have the potential too. Perhaps the doctors who have over medicating. He wanted to hold him to be free or not. I will fight for the quality of his life since he can not do for myself right now. They want to live without a firm yes. But at what cost? So, talk to your neurologist and lead you to a child psychiatrist. It is a chemical in the brain. Psychologists to deal with "problems" and can not prescribe medications. But a psychiatrist and They will not ask you in detail about the "problem". It's not a shame to have epilepsy. But it's also your business. It is up to you to tell if you have it. The label as well. Safety pins are not cool. I'm sure your doctor will write a letter to the school to tell them that it's not politically correct. I was surprised not to sue the district.

Adhd Diet For Kids

adhd diet for kids

kids who have adhd question?

is there a special diets for kids who have adhd

It depends on if they are diagnosed and taking medication. Chocolate soy milk, carrots, DIET soda, and foods like pasta, potatoes, things high in carbs and starch to help them maintain their weight. You can also get the flavored shakes like Boost, or dietary supplement shakes to drink with their meals so they get their vitamins and put the normal amount of weight on because with their hyper metabolisms and especially if they take meds, they can lose it or just not gain much. Be sure the soda is sugar free, but not caffeine free. The sugar will just speed them up, while caffeine works like a stimulant for their brains, like ritalin, dexadrine, or adderall does. I wouldn’t give them any kind of coffee though. Speeds up the heart rate too much. It takes 2 cans of soda to equal one cup of coffee.
Hope that helps.

MY SUGGESTIONS AND ADVICE COME FROM DEALING WITH THIS IN MYSELF AND MY CHILDREN FOR THE PAST 30 YEARS, AND THE MAJORITY OF IT IS PERSONAL EXPERIENCE FROM DOCTORS AND OTHER PARENTS/ADULTS WITH THE SAME ILLNESS. I UNDERSTAND THAT THE OTHER COMMENT UNDER MINE IS TRYING TO HELP, BUT THIS IS FIRST HAND EXPERIENCE AND KNOWLEDGE. For example on the soda. My son’s prescription along with other children’s was stolen during a late night school break in. While we were waiting on the police report, two different doctors suggested Diet Mountain Dew for the stimulant effect until his medicine can be replaced. I hope you do what is best for your child based on experiences and not hearsay.

Adhd Diagnosis Test Children

Adhd Symptoms

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder ( previously known as ADD or ADHD) as a disease is rapidly gaining ground. The number of people suffering from this disease, especially children and youngsters is rising rapidly. Some medical praticitioners insist that the rise in cases is a direct result of better education and thus early diagnosis. Other medical practicitioners will have you believe that the rise in the number of ADHD diagnosed suffers is due to increasing levels of toxins and pollutants in our air and food.

With the medical profession arguing amongst itself as to the causes and cures of this illness what is the average parent to do. The first step is probably one of education i.e. parents must educate themselves as to the nature of this illness and the first place to start is the symptoms.

ADHD Checklist of possible symptoms:

The ADHD Checklist is mainly an instrument in determining the exact nature, degree and the impact of the disease on an individual. However please don’t be surprised if your initial reaction to this list is to think but this describes most children – that was my reaction too. And this is a huge problem with ADHD and similar illnesses. There are no “medical” tests – well certainly not free available ones so the diagnosis of ADHD is subjective – it is based on opinions – that of the parents, the medical practitioner, the child’s teacher etc. It goes some way to explaining why a child badly affected by ADHD who has a saint for a mother and an angel for a teacher is less likely to be diagnosed than a child who may be less affected by their “adhd” but has a stressed out mother and overworked teacher. (I think my child may have suffered as a result of having a stressed out working mother who was on antidepressants and struggling to cope!)

What does the ADHD Checklist Include?

The ADHD checklist for children includes the following points – as most ADHD sufferers tend to be male – I have used him for ease:

a) A child who is always restless and always raring to go.

b) He does not listen and pays no heed to his parents or to his teachers.

c) He lacks the ability to concentrate even for a short span of time.

d) He is extremely fidgety, restless and unable to sit still.

e) A child/ youngster suffering from ADHD takes risks easily and does not consider the consequences of his actions.

f) He can be very talkative and blurts out everything.

g) A person suffering from ADHD can be easily distracted and thus finds it difficult to complete any tasks assigned to him.

It is hopefully apparent now why so many children are misdiagnosed – either as having the illness when they don’t or not having it when they do. What parent can honestly say that their own child wouldn’t fall into many if not all of the above categories at some stage in the parenting cycle?

The official ADHD checklist for adults includes the following points:

a) An adult can suffer from ADHD if he has suffered from hyperactivity and restlessness in his childhood.

b) Any Adult suffering from the symptoms described above in the children’s section.

c) An adult suffering from ADHD shows inconsistent performance, decreasing work productivity and incomplete projects.

d) Also such individuals get frustrated very easily and show signs of nervousness and hypertension.

e) Adult ADHD sufferers can find it extremely difficult to maintain close and intimate relationships.

f) They are constantly in search of activities that stimulate them.

g) They also suffer from bouts of depression and low energy levels.

h) They lack organizational skills and planning.

Whilst the above checklists may provide you with a list of the ADHD symptoms – has this list solved any of your worries or concerns? I would suspect the answer to that question is no – if you were worried previously then you are possibly even more concerned now. And if you weren’t too concerned prior to reading this list of ADHD symptoms, I would bet money on you being worried now.

Adhd Prevalence

adhd prevalence

Is ADHD a real disease, or is it just nature’s way of saying our modern life is unnatural and unhealthy?

Lately I have been wondering how suddenly half the population of the industrialized world suddenly developed ADD/ADHD. My guess is that humans go a little batty when forced to sit in a chair all day staring at a glowing screen (says the guy typing at a computer, but whatever). I really don’t know anything about this though so it’s just wild speculation. Are there any respectable journal articles that have explored the suddenness of this disorder’s increased prevalence?
I should specify Adult ADHD, thanks.

ADD/ADHD are quite real but overdiagnosed . Some people believe that Asperger Syndrome also is not real . Of course these people have never raised a child with the condition as I have .

adhd effects on children

Moms who were working but became stay at home moms: were there any effects on your children’s behavior?

I quit my job after working for the past year and a half. My son has mental diagnoses including bipolar, adhd, and cognitive disorder. He has been having severe behavioral issues at home and school. I am hoping that being home with him, having more time in the afternoons to spend with him, will have a positive effect on his behavior. I am just wondering if any other moms went from working to stay at home and what the effects were on the children?

after working many years as a single parent i did the same thing and even after having to take a Life style change it was all for the better. My son has had a tremendous change.He also has bipolar and aspergers . He has gained a mommy that can support him academically emotionally physically .he went from being two grade levels behind in special ed to now being in mainstream in high school on a B average in the 10th grade. so i say good for you.

Adhd Medications and Children With Anxiety

Copyright (c) 2008 Sandy Adamson

For those who are wondering, ADHD stands for Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, a behavioral disorder that is now affecting almost 10% of the school-age chidren. In our day to day life, you may hear a lot of people associate ADHD medications with children with anxiety. From a more professional prospective, however, there is no direct connection between two. They are only associated for the simple fact that both relate to ADHD. If a child is suffering ADHD, he will have great difficulty in paying attention and focusing, which will ultimately lead to difficulty in achieving goals.

Despite its seemingly obvious symptoms, diagnosis of ADHD is not as easy as many would believe. This is because about two thirds of the children with ADHD also suffer other medical conditions the same time, and the common coexisting conditions include anxiety disorder, ODD (Oppositional Defiant Disorder) and CD (Conduct Disorder), mood disorder, and learning disabilities. Now, it is not hard to understand the association between ADHD and anxiety – they often go side by side!

In fact, about 25% of the ADHD sufferers also have anxiety disorders. There are both mental and physical symptoms, such as restlessness, fatigue, difficulty in concentration, irritability, insomnia, excessive worry, fear, heart racing, sweating, stomach pains, and diarrhea. Others may even develop OCD (obsessive-compulsive disorder) and Tourette syndrome, as well as motor or vocal tics (movements or sounds that are repeated over and over).

In diagnosing ADHD with anxiety conditions, doctors usually will inquire into the complete medical history of the child, use their own observation, and conduct an interview with parents. With the medical technology today, ADHD cannot be completely healed. But, with appropriate medications and professional counselling, it can be successfully managed. The anxiety condition is also highly treatable with professional counseling coupled with medications. In both situations, early treatment may help prevent further development of mental problems, including suicide attempts.

There are several types of ADHD medications, such as stimulants, non-stimulants and anti-depressants. All of them have established effectiveness, but none is totally free in side-effects although there is currently no evidence of any long-term ones. The same can be said for medications for children’s anxiety, but of course the two medications cannot be used interchangeably.

Behavior therapy is another effective means to treat both ADHD and children’s anxiety. With that method, the doctors endeavor to adjust the behavior of affected children by making right changes to their home and school environment, improving their organisational skill, and setting up an appropriate reward and punish system.

Without a doubt, the parents’ involvement is an essential in implementing the behavior therapy. As the most trusted ones to their ill children, parents can provide enormous support to their kids in a number of ways, such as setting up a routine, improving organisational skills, minimising distractions, setting goals, and establishing confidence. As such, parent training is often an indispensable part of the treatment program.

Despite the importance of the role by parents of the affected children, some people are still attributing the cause of children’s mental problem to poor parenting. This, of course, is a complete myth. Today, the stresses faced by our teenagers are no less than adults, which include the worries for schooling and concerns about socialisation. Plus, teenagers’ minds are experiencing constant learning and changes. With that being said, there is no need for you to get over concerned if your child is affected. As discussed, ADHD can be effectively managed with behavioral therapy and ADHD medications, and children with anxiety can also be successfully treated with the same combination of methods.

Tips for Helping your Adhd Child With Homework

Children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) often have difficulty sitting still and concentrating. They feel the urge to move around continually. Everyday items such as a ticking clock, the movement of the rustling leaves, the wind outside, and the dripping of a leaky faucet are enough to distract attention from homework.

Parents can help an ADHD child complete homework without resorting to yelling and threatening punishment. Understanding the thought and behavior pattern differences in their child equips parents to help a young one complete homework in a reasonable timeframe and retain a greater level of knowledge.

Not all ADHD children are alike. Some have minimal hyperactivity symptoms; others may focus well, but have difficulty controlling their moods and physical actions. A different approach treats each type of behavior.

Homework Tips for Kids with Attention Deficit Problems

• Remove Obvious Distractions: Turn off the television and radio, remove siblings from the room and close the blinds before beginning homework.

• Use an Egg Timer: An egg timer provides continuous visual cues to help the child pace progress and stay on task.

• Verbal Cues: If you catch your child daydreaming or fidgeting with school supplies, gently remind them to return to the task of completing their homework.

• Break Down Large Assignments: Large assignments can be overwhelming to a child with attention deficit disorder. Parents should break these large assignments into smaller, manageable chunks. This also helps create an ongoing sense of accomplishment as the child completes each portion.

• Use White Noise: White noise, such as the humming of a fan, helps an ADHD child concentrate.

• Write It Down: ADHD children often forget homework assignments seconds after being told the tasks. Purchase an agenda book or school planner to track homework assignments. Teach your child to use it daily.

• Keep a Schedule: Routine schedules make a big difference in children with ADHD. Setting a time for homework every day allows the child to prepare for the activity. Be sure to select a period when your child’s concentration levels are the greatest.

Homework Tips for Kids with Hyperactivity Disorder

• Frequent Breaks: Allow the child to take a break at set intervals during homework time. This relieves the desire to move around, fostering greater concentration.

• Burn off Excess Energy: Allow the child a few minutes of free time, preferable outdoors and prior to the homework session. Transition to homework time by slowly decreasing physical activity until the child is able to sit still to work on assignments.

• Use Index Cards: Write out spelling words, memorization items, or key facts on index cards that the child can flip through while standing or walking around the room.

• Try Standing Up: Use a podium for completing homework instead of a desk and chair. This may allow the child to expend small amounts of physical energy while allowing him to complete homework in a timely manner.

When helping an ADHD child complete homework, be sure to give frequent words of praise for each small accomplishment. Patience, encouragement, and understanding are necessary in dealing with these extraordinary children.

i dont think there’s any different between ADD(ADHD) and NORMAL kids?

i think i have ADD(ADHD), the one that keeps daydreaming, loses attention very quickly and stuff..not the hyperactive one..but i personally think that there’s no different between ADD(ADHD) and normal kids..because it’s normal that one will loses attention if they find the subject is boring and unattractive.isnt that true?
didnt u all doodle on ur book if the teacher talks about absolutely rubbish and you couldnt even understand a single thing being mention?
tell me if i’m wrong and what is the difference between them?

If you don’t think there is any difference bewteen normal kids and those with ADHD then you have probably never met anyone with real ADHD. In real ADHD there are huge and obvious differences.

Yes it is normal for all kids to lose attention when they find subjects boring. But that is not what ADHD is like. While a normal kid may get bored after 10 minutes or so and lose focus. An ADHD child will lose focus in 10 seconds or so. They wont just lose interest when it is boring but will lose interest in things they find really interesting too because they havent got the attention span. They will lose attention when they want to be focused. They will not be able to concentrate even on their favourite TV show, or when talking to their best friend, or when eating their dinner, or when playing their favourite sport.

what is adhd adhd symptoms

Untreated Adult ADHD?

I have Adult ADHD. I was diagnosed in 1985 at the age of 7. My parents refused to put me on any medication, refusing to believe I really had a serious issue. I have suffered all the classic ADHD symptoms and still do.

I am now 31 years old and it has taken its toll on my life and my family. I am so impulsive, I constantly go from idea to idea. Also from job to job. Never finished college, poor grades etc. I cause myself and my family financial problems as a result of my impulsiveness. I constantly feel restless and the need to go and can never organize myself or my chatter box head. Each night I have to have a drink to calm down.

I dont want to make this to long winded so, my question is, has anyone else had similar experiences and what meds and solutions did you use to rectify the problem? How is your life different today?

Meditate – There are many meditation techniques but one that works best for the ADHD brain is Mindfulness Meditation. This is merely the act of sitting still and only being there in the present. Talk to your doctor. good luck

Adhd Emotional Regulation

Sunday, June 6th, 2010

adhd emotional regulation

should ADHD be called something else?

it effects more than just hyperactivity and attention. it also effects motivation, memory, and emotional regulation
to all of you who are saying its overdiagnosed or that diet can change it: you know nothing about ADHD and you need to stop answering on these boards because some poor unfortunate person might listen to your nonsense. if diet changed your case then fine, thats good, it means you didnt have ADHD. it also means that you don’t understand pharmacology enough.

Motivation and memory revolve around the ability to retain information, which is caused by hyperactivity causing poor focus skills. This in turn can create stress, and that effects emotion. It’s all connected, the name doesn’t have to be changed.

Have You Tried Herbal Supplements for Adhd?

When a child is diagnosed with ADHD, it can be a confusing and devastating blow. Prescription drugs are often the first line of defense for the disorder. Common side effects such as insomnia, restlessness, anxiety, decreased appetite, allergic reactions, and unforeseen long-term complications lead many people to seek alternative therapies.

Luckily, there are many herbal supplements for ADHD that can balance the brain chemistry without the unwanted side effects of prescription medication. Studies performed on the psychological effects of herbs have revealed benefits for many brain and performance parameters. These benefits also extend to ADHD patients as they have natural stimulating properties and positive effects on the nervous system.

Some of the most effective herbal supplements for treating ADHD include Ginkgo Biloba, American Ginseng, St. John’s Wort, Grape Seed Extract, and Pine Bark (Pycnogenol). These herbal supplements for ADHD have been reported effective time and again by children and adults diagnosed with the disorder, and most have been validated by scientific studies.

Ginkgo Biloba is one of the most effective herbal supplements for treating ADHD. It improves blood flow, brain function, memory, and concentration. Studies have shown that combining Ginkgo with American Ginseng can treat symptoms of ADHD in many children.

St. John’s Wort is one of the classic herbal supplements for ADHD. It has been used for years to increase serotonin availability in the brain. Not only is it the most popular alternative anti-depressant prescribed, it is also very effective in the treatment of ADHD. St. John’s Wort is particularly useful in the treatment of the limbic system sub-type of Attention Deficit Disorder.

Grape Seed Extract is another of the most frequently used herbal supplements for treating ADHD. It is becoming increasingly common for physicians to prescribe this extract instead of prescription medication as a first line of defense. Although the exact mechanism that makes grape seed extract so effective is unknown, it is believed to inhibit the breakdown of dopamine in the brain, which happens faster than normal in ADHD patients.

Pine Bark is also an up and comer in the world of herbal supplements for ADHD. Also known as Pycnogenol, this supplement is a complex of flavanoids from the French maritime pine tree. It is a powerful antioxidant that increases circulation, improves capillary health, and reduces free radicals. These properties combine to increase duration and effectiveness of the brain’s neurotransmitters. Pycnogenol can cross the brain’s blood barrier, which almost no other substance can do. It has been found especially helpful in treating children with ADHD.

Diet, exercise, and herbal supplements for treating ADHD may be the answer to your prayers if you are searching for an alternative to drug therapy. These are just some of the many herbal supplements for ADHD that have been proven effective. Find what works best for your child and speak to your doctor about any changes in medication or the addition of herbal supplements for treating ADHD.

Child with ADHD, has anyone used natural remedies for their children? and have they worked??

My daughter is 6 years old now but since she started school the teachers have been telling me she has adhd. The first year I didn’t do anythign about it. The second year The teacher still pushed it so I brought her to a pediatrician who sjust basically medicated her right away without any testing. I took her off the drug because things were not improving after a few months. I recently went to see a different pediatrician and received the same diagnosis that she has adhd. I have been researching it as much as I can but I still have mixed feelings. I went today to see a naturopath to get her blood analyzed. I was amazed at what she told me, without me even telling her why I brought her there in the first place. She was able to tell me what was going on in her body and what would be affected by it. she recomended some supplements and a body cleanse. has anyone else tried this for their child and has it helped???

This will be a bit long, but I’ll try to give you my best understanding on the problem since it seems like information would be appreciated 😛
Hope you find this helpful!

ADD is a relatively recent phenomena that has been getting progressively worse. Those critical of the conventional approach towards the condition believe the following may be true;
The condition is overdiagnosed by zealous psycologist (the reasons for this are debated, they include payments from drug companies)
A lot of previously normal behavior (ie. boys naturally don’t like to sit down at a desk all day long), is now considered a mental problem. Some people claim this is linked to the fact the new model of schooling wants to process students into mindless workers for an industrial system, hence previous indepenedent habits that prevent toiling in a factory all day long are not acceptable.
Environmental pollution causes it (ie. food additives were shown irrefutably by a UK government study to cause learning problems including ADD).
The nature of our current society creates it. For instance the rapidly changing stimuli on TV (one thing is only focused on for a few seconds before the next one is jumped to) causes a child’s attention span to be conditioned to be very short.

Regardless of the cause though, the biggest opposition towards the ritalin treatment is the fact that the stuff is an amphetamine (ie. think of methamphetamine aka crystal meth). A lot of the effects of ritalin mirror those of fairly bad drugs, and I know quite a few people raised on ritalin, who are for lack of a better term fucked up and disfunctional.
An old tactic (I never did it but I had friends that did) for doing well on important exams which were not primarily memory based and timed was to take cocaine or speed before the test. Ritalin has now become a much popular drug for this approach. The state of mind you go into can be useful occasionaly for situations like that, but forcing continually on the nervous system just messes it up, strains it, makes you completely dependent on the drugs, and puts you into a completely unnatural/abnormal state of mind.

I have heard of a few people who have seen naturopaths successfully (as another poster mentioned, naturopaths only count in states that accredit them, in other places the title is almost worthless) to treat it. I would advise looking into that before you tried anything else.

Quick aside on Kalos.
He goes on here, and gives a brief flame (slander) to anything to do with an alternative medicine practice. Once that flame has been made, some responds and points out why it’s false, and then Kalos edits his post to write a long tirade and flaming whoever claimed that.
I would estimate this has happened over 100 times, just ignore him.

Treating ADHD With Natural Options That Can Have Your Child Feeling & Behaving Better in No Time

Due to all the complications with prescription drugs, many parents are treating ADHD with natural options instead. In this article, you’ll find out more about those options as well as how you can use a simple 3-step program to get your child back on track in all important areas of life.

Since Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is believed to have many contributing causes, the best way to treat this kind of disorder is with a health conscious approach. Rather than numbing your child out with drugs, suppressing symptoms and depressing his energy with stimulants, focus on giving the brain the nutrients that it needs to heal itself and restore proper function. The best way to do this is with a good diet, specially formulated supplement and regular exercise program.

Since there are many ingredients in processed food that can worsen the symptoms of ADHD, one of the first ways of treating ADHD with natural options is to make sure your child eats healthy, organic food. By “organic,” I mean lean meat from grass-fed animals and fresh vegetables, fruit and whole grains grown without pesticides.

Although changing to a healthy diet may seem a bit overwhelming, you don’t have to do it all at once. Instead, make small substitutions over time, so that eventually, you have eliminated the sugary sodas and other processed, chemical-laden foods. Start with your child’s favorite snack food and try to find a healthy alternative. For instance if your child loves to snack on salty potato chips, try salted celery sticks instead. Make sure to call your child’s attention to the steady energy he feels after eating food that provides his body with nutrients.

Next, since it will take time to make this transition, get your child on a natural remedy that is designed specifically to treat the symptoms of ADHD. Look for one that has been FDA-approved and that contains the following ingredients: Verta Alb, Hyocyamus and Tuberculinum.

These all natural herbs have been proven effective in clinical studies to calm the nervous system, increase focus and the ability to stay on task and decrease impulsivity and inappropriate behaviors. Using a formulations with these herbs for treating ADHD with natural options is one of the most effective ways to start seeing changes in your child’s behavior. Best of all, these remedies have no side effects or complications.

Finally, add daily exercise to your child’s routine. Regular exercise reduces hyperactivity, relieves stress and calms an overactive mind. The endorphins released during vigorous exercise refresh the body and give the mind a much needed respite from the constant agitation that is the hallmark of a child who is always on the go. Of course, this means that you will also get a rest from it as well.

So there you have it: a simple, sound approach for treating ADHD with natural options that is easy to start and make part of your child’s daily routine. Good food, a supplement that is clinically proven to treat ADHD without side effects and regular exercise. Follow this program faithfully for at least six months and you will see positive changes in your child. Don’t wait. Your child deserves the benefits of following a healthy program.

Does Naked Juice Use Fruit with Pesticides?

We just picked up some from Costco and I realize now that this delicious product is NOT organic. And then I thought about the whole ADHD and Pesticides link and now I’m wondering if Naked Juice uses any old fruit (lowest, cheapest, etc., grown in other countries with absolutely no pesticide regulations; and yes, the US uses way too much pesticide but at least the companies are semi-accountable)? I went to the Naked Juice website, but no mention of Organic or Pesticides.

Oh, and in case you’re still interested, check out the list of the “Dirty Dozen” fruits/vegetables from Garden of Life:

From what i can tell, they may be part of pepsico, and as part of their PR or R&D are trying to “limit” pesticide laden fruit. I will let you do more research. If it is not organic, that would mean that the strawberries would contain high amounts of pesticides. So, if the label is not certified, organic, then expect the opposite to be true. If that bothers you, go to whole foods and ask the information team what would be best. Maybe in your case, a juicer would do the job just as well.

adhd natural remedies children

Doe anyone use the natural remedy PYCNOGENOL for ADHD?

Whats your experience? can children use it?

Well, Pycnogenol is just a good antioxidant.

At this point in history, nobody knows what causes or cures ADHD, so it’s hard to say if it would help or not.
As far as children using it, most herbs are recommended for people 18 years and older (unless the label has a dosage listed for children). It’s possible it’d be safe, but it may be too strong for a child. If it’s too strong for a child, but works for adults with ADHD, I’d suggest just trying some other antioxidants that are safe for children. Good luck!

Natural Supplements For Adhd Children

What is Natural Treatment of ADHD in Children?

It may be new for you to hear, but you can find a natural treatment of ADHD in children. ADHD is an attention crippling disorder that interferes with a child’s ability to focus, concentrate, and it can also interfere with their relations with other children. Many children that have it do not understand the disorder, but some do. It is sad, and something needs to be done about it.

Many children can not handle the stimulants that are given in prescription ADHD medications. Their only option is to take ADHD natural supplements. Some parents might also want to consider just trying it to see if it might work better than their child’s current medication. There are literally thousands of websites that discuss natural treatment of ADHD in children, and several of them ought to be approached carefully.

Not everything that you read will be correct, so make sure that you do a good bit of research before giving your child any ADHD natural supplements that might be potentially harmful to their health. It is always a good idea to consult with their physician before starting a new treatment or combining treatment. There could always be draw backs such as allergic reactions and various other negative side effects.

If you are on an intense search for a natural treatment of ADHD in children, and are not wanting any side effects, then your best bet would be to go with the below listed herbal remedies that help to quiet the symptoms of ADHD:

Ginko Biloba: This herb has been proven highly effective for children who have a capacity to become inattentive. The way that Ginko Biloba works is by optimizing their brain functions and healing the nervous system.

Gota Kola: This herbal remedy for ADHD so far has no side effects, but it needs to be taken in care along with the advice of a doctor. It works by helping to increase the attention span in children with ADHD, and also by helping them to develop focus.

Skullcap: As another very well-known ADHD natural supplement, Skullcap helps to calm the nervous system by getting rid of the anxiety and feelings of pain that come with the disorder.

The natural treatment of ADHD in children is the best way to go, especially if you are worried that there may be side effects that are interfering with your child while he or she is on her prescription medication. We must do everything that we can to curb the symptoms of ADHD in our children.

It is something that they cannot help, and most are oblivious to the fact that they even have it. The worst part is that some prescription medications out on the market today are actually making our child’s symptoms worse than what they already were to begin with.

I am sure that you have heard the truth about prescription medications and the toxins that they produce inside of your body. The toxins come from chemicals that are not natural. Over time, toxins build up and lead to other illnesses that have to be treated with more medication.

Stop feeding the pharmaceutical companies all of your hard earned dollars and start investing in natural remedies for your child! All of these natural healers and remedies were not put here out of vain. The reasons are clear and easy enough to see, a natural treatment of ADHD in children is the best way to approach the illness.

What natural or alternative remedies have you had success in treating ADHD for your child?

I’m looking for specific brands of herbal, homeopathic, supplements, etc. My son is 7 and has been diagnosed with ADHD and I would like some suggestions as we are not going to medicate him. Thanks!

It depends on the severity of the ADHD. I have two boys ages 7 and 8 who are extremely ADHD and a majority of the herbal remedies did not work for them. There is a form of massage therapy called Cranial Sacral that did provide a form of relief for my oldest son. It is hard to find a therapist that is licensed in that field and expensive but it was, by far, the best thing we tried. Another thing that helps somewhat is diet modification. Try eliminating processed sugars, processed foods in general and adding more protein, raw vegetables (if you can get him to eat it), and whole grains. Sometimes even the herbacides that are used on vegetables can cause problems so make sure everything is all natural. There is a product called BrightSpark that I’ve heard works wonders and also one called Focus. It’s basically a combination of different amino acids, minerals and vitamins that help the nervous system function on a more “normal” basis. As weird as this may sound ear candleing is a wonderful help for ADHD too. We do it regularly and it helps a great deal for the concentration. We’ve also found that counseling helps…it helps them cope with having ADHD and gives them someone to talk to outside of the family. Good luck!! Some of the smartest, most successful people have ADHD and used it to their advantage (Albert Einstein for one).

Adhd Or Misunderstood

Misdiagnosis of ADD/ADHD was looked at last week and we discussed how large of a problem it has become. The true extent of this problem becomes apparent when you stop to analyse the diagnosis rates over the past decade and also the rate at which ADD/ADHD medication is prescribed. The end results of the research are unbelievable!Looking at the data on a graph gives an indication that much of the industry devoted to ADD/ADHD will become less and less one of hte industries growing! So what is happening? It seems that we are either facing an epidemic of catastrophic proportions or a diagnostic system that is driven by something else besides clinical accuracy. It is my firm believe that the truth is the latter scenerio and that a multitude of people are misdiagnosed each year as ADD/ADHD which is not a little thing in their lives. I want to repeat that I believe that the reasons behind these wrong diagnoses are:

Failure to investigate alternative explanations – An ADD/ADHD diagnosis has become almost ‘fashionable’ in some circles and is therefore the first thing some medical professionals reach for when confronted with behavioral problems.

Outside pressure – Some teachers and caregivers see an ADD/ADHD diagnosis, and the resultant prescription of mind altering chemicals, as the quickest way out of their difficulties in dealing with a particular student. What happens when overly eager educators or doctors push to have a child tested and labeled. Money – The manufacturers of ADD/ADHD medication have access to multimillion dollar marketing budgets that serve to keep the possibility of an ADD/ADHD diagnosis ‘warm’ in the mind of medical professionals, teachers and parents.

This week’s article will focus on a cause of misdiagnosis that could very easily be filed under the first alternative: Failure to investigate alternative explanations. It is a well established fact that many children who have been diagnosed with ADD/ADHD were actually gifted students who ‘acted out’ in response to being bored with the educational environments in which they have been placed. It is easy to understand why the educators and professionals sometimes confuse the effects of ADD/ADHD with the classic responses of gifted students to unchallenging environments. Children exhibiting the effects of ADD/ADHD and ‘unrecognised’ gifted children often display remarkably similar behaviors including:

– Increased activity levels – Difficulty paying attention – Impulsivity – Lack of focus and persistence, and – Difficulty following rules

If you use only these behaviors as the method for diagnosing ADD/ADHD it will be very easy for a gifted student to be misdiagnosed. In truth, just because behaviors resemble each other does not mean the root cause is the same.Issues within the function of the brain have been linked to the commonly discussed symptoms of ADD/ADHD.g. malfunctioning neurotransmitters). ADD/ADHD type symptoms exhibited by gifted children have radically different explanations. This is the reason why it is extremely important that a child not be quickly labeled ADD/ADHD just on their behavior.

Research has shown that gifted children generally possess advanced abilities in at least some of the following areas:

– Psychomotor – Sensual – Intellectual – Imaginational, and – Emotional

Of particular interest to this discussion are the areas of advanced psychomotor and imaginational abilities. The first is characterised by behaviors such as rapid speech and impulsive bodily movement, the latter by intense visualisation and daydreaming. It would take an uninformed professional just a short step to move from these behaviors to ‘diagnosing’ hyperactivity and inattentiveness respectively.

The way many gifted children respond to their learning environments causes confusion in distinguishing between ADD/ADHD and gifted. Some educationalists estimate that gifted students often spend half of the school day waiting for their peers to ‘catch up’! It is easily seen that this can cause extreme boredom and attention problems in subjects that are already mastered. It is quite common for gifted and talented students to react in “boring” environments in a manner resembling ADD/ADHD.

Last but not least, the fact that many gifted students have similar social issues that ADD/ADHD children possess leads to a misdiagnosis. The main reason behind this is the fact that they are often more intellectually and emotionally developed than their peers, making it difficult for them to fully relate and fit in.

It should be clear from the above that you could very easily end up with a similar set of behaviors but with radically different causes and also radically different ways of dealing with it (‘The 3 Steps’ outlined on this website and a clear gifted child program respectively – Although following the ‘3 Steps’ in the case of a gifted child certainly wouldn’t hurt either!). If your gut tells you that the diagnosis of ADD/ADHD is rash and too quickly accepted, do not hesitate to get this corrected for your gifted child! The ‘normal’ state of affairs is that it is found out that a child is actually gifted long after an ADD/ADHD diagnosis was made. Take the first step of having your child’s abilities evaluated before seeking help for ADD/ADHD which is what most psychologists in the educational area would support. By doing this you could be saving yourself a lot of stress and emotional anxiety!

I think I might have ADHD, but my parents won’t let me get tested. What do I do?

I went onto a website called and put in some symptoms, and it came up with 1 possible condition – ADHD. I asked my parents if I could get tested, they said “That’s a load of rubbish. You’re just ‘gifted’.” I looked at the other conditions with similar symptoms, and on the list it said that ‘gifted’ children and adults can have ADHD as well. How can I get tested if my parents won’t let me?
I’m 14 years old.

Try reading the book “Healing ADD” by Daniel G. Amen, M.D.. I don’t know how you get tested, you can go to a psychiatrist and have him diagnose your condition and treat you with medication temporarily until you learn to deal with it. As far as I know it eventually goes away as you get old or you may have to learn to live with it forever. Just try to learn as much as you can and get that book and have your parents read it so that they can help you. Good luck

adhd linked to pesticides

What type of speech would this be?

I have an extemp speech that I have to write, and the topic I drew was “Is there a link between pesticides and ADHD?” The problem is that I have to determine the type of speech for this question, and I am stuck between informative and persuasive. Which would be correct for this topic?

I would pick “informative”. Reason being, I don’t think you can persuade a link between pesticides and this type of behaviour. ADHD can be controlled with diet. It has to those children in my family who have this. It would be much easier to pick info..

Attention Deficit Disorder Explained – Learn About The Causes Of ADD

As parents, I am sure that many of you will have spent sleepless nights concerned that the strange behavior our child exhibited today may be the first signs of Attention Deficit Disorder. Our concerns are justified in many ways as most of us believe we know the fundamental signs of the disease are, and we obviously panic at the thought we might have to deal with it.

The fear of the disease, its effects and the way it will impact on the family is only one part of it. There is often an underlying guilt that in some way our actions may be responsible for this having happened. Most of us will in some way or another blame ourselves, believing that we have not been strict enough or applied enough discipline, or conversely that we have been too strict. While these apprehensions may be quite normal the ideas aren’t always rational or well-founded.

There are usually assed to be three broad stages in any normal childhood development;

The first is observable in babies / infants. During this stage infants become focused on and preoccupied with certain objects to the exclusion of what else is around them. If a kid’s development stalls around this point it may later show as signs of autism.

In the second recognisable stage, which is observed in older children, the child becomes interested in a range of things at the same time and they then become incapable of concentrating or focussing on any one thing or action for any length of time. This is the key to ADD, as If the child stalls in their development at this stage they may later in their childhood go on to suffer Attention Deficit Disorder (ADD).

The third stage assists a child to mature to a point from which they can comfortably focus and voluntarily apply their attention in one certain direction for longer periods of time. They can then alter their focus or actions as and when they have a need to. This stage is therefore a crucial transitional stage which moulds a child for success in the classroom and in the real world.

But ADD does not only make a child or young adult incapable of focusing. It also reduces their ability to take decisions. They can then become indecisive even in normal everyday life. An example may be that they become disoriented when crossing a road and turn back into on-coming traffic, or lose the reason why they were crossing in the first place.

At the opposite end of the scale, ADD sufferers can also become totally focussed on a specific object or task. They can become consumed by it and are as a result are absolutely cut-off and oblivious to everything else. an example of this manifesting is that they may watch the same movie again and again without realising, or read a certain part of a book repeatedly with no reaction or loss of concentration. Later in life this behavior might turn into over-eating or substance-abuse or other compulsive behavior.

Another increasingly reported variation of ADD is Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder known as ADHD. This leads to sufferers always needing to stay busy, moving from place to place or being unable to slow down. It is increasingly being diagnosed in young teenagers. This can drive parents mad and keep them up nights in an attempt to calm their child and entice them to sleep. These children and young adults will find it difficult to switch off but they can experience many of the events above. While experience of this type of patient has led Psychologists to conclude that ADD is not a problem that a child will grow out of naturally they have also quite strongly rejected any link with the parent causing this disorder. There is no direct causal relationship between what a parent does an how likely a child is to develop ADD or ADHD. So if your child is suffering from ADD stop blaming yourself, instead recognize the problem for what it is and contact a specialist as soon as possible.

Medical Conditions Causing Sleep Deprivation

Sleep Disorder is something that almost everybody suffers from at some point of time in their life. For most people, the sleep disorder or sleep deprivation is a temporary phenomenon while for others it becomes worse. It is therefore true that medical condition of a person contributes a lot to sleep deprivation.

Sleep deprivation is one of the symptoms of Sleep disorder affecting millions of people around the world. Those who are affected by the sleep disorder and several medical conditions are laced with several symptoms of lack of sleep. These include metabolic imbalance, hormone imbalance, chronic pain, fever and urinary frequency.

Sleep deprivation caused by medical conditions can actually come in various forms. For instance, chronic pain conditions do not allow you to have sound sleep during the night. Chronic pain is the pain that either lingers on or last. This type of pain can occur due to problem with your legs or from a sore back.

Also, physical and mental condition can be the real cause of the sleep deprivation. Here, we explain some of them that you might be undergoing.

Attention Deficit Hyperactivity (ADHD) is a medical condition that contributes to the inability to sleep well at night. In this very condition, a person is left with countless snoring and sleeping disorders while sleeping.

Depression is also a major cause of sleep deprivation. Depression is characterized as the root cause of all ailments affecting the way you feel, you think, you perceive things, you make decision, you eat, and the way you feel about yourself. Depression interferes with your sleep, causes fatigue and affects your mood and can lead to your ability of dealing with ups and downs of life and makes it difficult to concentrate on tasks.

Asthma is another condition in which medication provided to cure asthma conditions may facilitate a person to cure the sleeping problems at night. It is a chronic disease that affects the tubes carrying air to the lungs.

At last, sleep disorder such as sleep deprivation and other related problems are associated with medical conditions. So, to deal with it you may have to take professional advice from a health provider. In such case, a health professional specialised in sleeping disorders might advise you to buy a memory foam mattress which is one of the best option to get rid of various sleeping disorders.

wondering if these are symptoms of bipolar or ADHD?

is being really loud, not sleeping enough and having unrestrained laughter and then crying plus inattention and lack of concentration symptoms of bipolar or ADHD… i am confused because my first doctor said it was bipolar and the second one is claiming its ADHD or depression…please help….

ADHD and bipolar disorder can occur at the same time. Doctors misdiagnose Bipolar disorder as depression because bipolars seek medical help when they’re depressed, not when they’re in a manic state and feeling unnaturally high. DO NOT take antidepressants. They will throw you into a manic state. Stick with the first doctor.

What is calms forté and should I be concerned that my mom is giving it to my daughter for ADHD-like symptoms?

I am worried that there are side effects and potential long-term health problems.

I am worried that it is addictive.

Calms Forte is a sleeping pill and it should not be given just to calm your child down.
Honey you should be worred about your mom giving YOUR dauther anything. She is not a doctor and they don’t make medicene for ADHD-like symptoms. They have medicene for ADHD but not just because the child is acting hyper or something. She is your daughter and you should be in charge of her well being and what she gets. If your concerned about her having ADHD then take her to a doctor. Do not give her something because you think she is being to hyper or something. Remember she is a child. It’s what they do. Your mom should not be giving her pills unless they are pills you told her to give. Have a backbone when it comes to your child.

The Hyperactive Child – Four Tips for Parents

Blame the media ! All this TV, playstations, cell phones, Internet and DVDs is the cause of ADHD, obesity and will negatively impact on your child’s health. A sweeping generalisation, as my father was so fond of saying ! Before we examine the hyperactive child and the other problem areas associated with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), let us look at some common symptoms and some solutions for children with rather special needs.

It will probably be the child’s teacher who will first notice that there may be a problem as the child (if indeed s/he has ADHD). Non-stop motion, fidgeting and failure to focus are going to impact negatively on the child’s grades. Disruptive children may also impact negatively on their brothers and sisters’ academic achievements merely by the disturbance and noise they make. Not to mention putting a strain on the parents’ marriage. Once properly diagnosed, you will have to make an informed choice about ADHD medications but here are four tips to help you cope with the hyperactivity.

1st – Reduce Media Use. All media is not bad. It may be educational or just for fun. The main thing you can do as a parent is to find out what your kids are watching and doing with this stuff. Even soft porn TV programs can lead to kids imitating what they see on the screen , leading to a rather too early experimentation with sex. Much better to control the use of the media and explain that sex and violence are a no-no and why ! Then, make sure that there is lots of active outdoor stuff you can do with them – hiking, biking and skating, just to mention a few.

2nd – Plan Your Kids’ Day. Just a bit of planning and telling your child what is going to happen during the day makes a great difference to you and him or her. First your child knows what is coming and so do you ! This helps to reduce stress and chaos all round.

3rd- The Teacher Is Your Ally. You need to have a really good relationship with their teacher.
You can check with her about how your child is behaving in the classroom. It is a good way of keeping an eye on their progress because a lot of the hyperactivity may occur in the classroom setting – answering out of turn, relationships with classmates, interrupting and inability to focus.

4th – Avoid Shopping Malls. If you have shopping to do, try to make sure that you don’t drag your kid along. Research has shown that this type of outing is upsetting for children with ADHD. Much better to make sure that the child stays with a friend at home, while you get a break and can do your shopping in peace !

Are you worried about conventional ADHD medication for your child ? You may know that the child’s development (weight and height) is negatively impacted compared with other children.

Symptoms Of ADHD

ADHD or the Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder is a kind of condition wherein a person is having trouble in paying attention and focusing on task. This kind of condition may begin in the early childhood and continues on adulthood. If left untreated, this can cause problems especially at home, in school, work and even with relationships. ADHD is diagnosed when a child is between 6 and 12 years of age. The child will have to take a physical exam to make sure that he or she does not have problems in learning. The doctor may look at the written reports about the behavior of the child.


There are three types of symptoms that ADHD has. These are:

  1. Trouble paying attention. Individuals that have ADHD are easily distracted and have a hard time to focus on any task. When the demands in school or home increase, the warning signs include the inability to listen to instructions, failing to finish projects, homework or chores, getting poor grades, being unable to organize things and being isolated from peers because or secondary depression. Adults with ADHD have a hard time to finish tasks and they often forget things. Sometimes, they are also curious and creative. They love to ask questions and learn.
  2. Trouble sitting still for a short time (Hyperactivity). Hyperactivity may vary depending on the age and developmental stage. Toddlers and preschoolers tend to be in constant motion.  School-age children are unable to remain seated. Children with ADHD may fidget or run around at the wrong times while teens and adults are restless and do not enjoy reading or do quiet activities. The impulsivity symptoms are impatience, blurting out answers before the questions are completed, difficulty in waiting turns, problems in social works, initiating conversations at the times that are inappropriate. Hyperactivity may lead to certain accidents like banging into people or knocking out objects. In normal youngsters, these symptoms occur.
  3. Acts before thinking and Talks too loud. People with ADHD acts before thinking. They may talk too loud or becomes angry when situation calls. Children who have this condition cannot wait for their turn or even to share. They have a hard time to play with other children. For teens and adults, they seem to leap before they look.  They may make decisions that may have an impact to their lives. Sometimes they spend too much money or change their jobs often. They have trouble at work and at home. Adults with ADHD have higher divorce rates. They are also most likely to smoke and have abuse problems. There are only a few ADHD adults who go to college and graduate. It is really important to treat ADHD through medicine, behavior therapy and counseling.

What ADHD meds can be taken with Wellbutrin?

I am currently on Wellbutrin for depression. All anti depressants seem to work for about a month or 2, and then the effects wan. My mom told me a few days ago that I had ADHD pretty bad when I was a child. I had the really bad kind, where I was cruel to animals and destructive to property and such. My parents never treated me, so I truly believe that I have Adult ADHD and since it went untreated, I now have Major Depressive Disorder as a co-morbid condition. I think that the antidepressant meds are indeed working, and its not the depression thats coming back, its the ADHD symptoms that I am confusing with depression. I dont want to go off the Wellbutrin, I was just wondering what meds that they would most likely prescribe in addition to Wellbutrin to treat the ADHD? Straterra is scary to me because I have a very sensitive stomach as is, and It works kind of like an antidepressant from what I have heard. Are stimulant meds the way to go?

I think you can take stimulants with it, although you may get a more calming effect from Clonidine. That comes in pills and patches…

Talk to your doctor about it. There are so many meds to choose from, nowadays, that I wouldn’t want to mislead you.

Help With Adhd Children – Stories From the Adhd Drugs World

Is this the sort of help with ADHD children you, as a parent, are looking for? At the James Madison University, students were interviewed about their misuse of the ADHD drugs like Adderall to help them study for exams. Overall anything between 5 % and 35% of students are snorting this drug or similar ones to get through their exams. They seem to be ignorant of other possible side effects such as: anxiety, hypertension, hallucinations, insomnia, weight loss, sudden death and seizures. They seem to be unaware that Adderall is a Schedule II drug and they could get up to 40 years of imprisonment under Virginia drug law. Fines of up to $500,000 could be imposed as well. Is this the treatment of ADHD in children you wanted?

Is this the future you see for your child when s/he gets to university? Here is another story of a boy in the UK who had severe ADHD and was on a very high dose (70 mg) of Concerta. Normally a 50mg dose is the maximum dose. Because of the side effects of this ADHD drug supposed to calm hyperactivity and control impulsivity, this boy injured himself while trying to iron a shirt which he was wearing at the time. One of the side effects of the drug was a terrible feeling of depression and listlessness. The 18 year old stopped taking the medication and one of his reactions was to go and burn down a school. He was convicted of arson and ordered to pay damages. Is this the sort of treatment of ADHD in children you were looking for?

When parents ask about treatment of ADHD in children, they do not want to hear these stories and many will shrug their shoulders saying that these are calculated risks. Other parents will run a mile from these ADHD medications which are a cocktail of amphetamines and they know that they are addictive and can lead to drug abuse. They also know that these psychostimulants are in great demand on the school parking lot. Up to 20% of teenagers who have been on these ADHD drugs are at risk of drug dependency and ending up on the drugs scene and even as pushers. Is this the only help with ADHD children we are offered by the drugs industry?

Many parents have read extensively on ADHD and know that , in spite of the drugs industry’s best efforts, there ARE alternative ADHD therapies available and they consist of herbal/homeopathic remedies which are just as effective and without any of the side effects or problems I have mentioned above. Each parent has to make an informed choice and the one thing that will influence them is the fact that ADHD drugs only suppress the symptoms and never cure the cause. Actually there is no cure but the natural remedies for ADHD will alleviate the symptoms and will not turn your child into a zombie , arsonist or drug pusher. This is the treatment of ADHD in children which will never get much publicity. The link here will give you all the information you need.

what is adhd child

Is It a Bad Idea to Medicate ADHD children?

Wondering what the cons to medicating an 8 yr old boy are? Is it the case that by doing so it increases their risk of becoming drug dependant or addicted? And is it so that once medicated they are like little zombies? 🙁
any other alternative treatments besides lots of exercise? The main symptoms this child displays are: CONSTANT need to be moving & talking & I do mean constant. POOR listening skills, he says “what?” after everything! We are always having to rpeat what we say to him
2-3+ times. Any tips?

I think it’s okay if it’s done under close supervision watch behavior. Limit foods with dye in them.

Adhd Pesticide Study

adhd pesticide study

Whats wrong with me??? Please help!?

I am a 17 year old girl and Over a month ago I had my first panic attack, Caused by smoking too much marijuana. I completely stopped smoking november 4th and I was fine up until a week ago. But lately Ive had a couple panic attacks out of no where. And the last 4days Iv constantly have been expirencing the following symptoms: Dizziness, Fatigue, Chills, Chest tightness/pain, Rapid heartbeat, (over 120bmp) and trouble breathing. I have no clue what could be wrong and would appreciate help/any opinions you could give.

Sounds to me like you are lying to prove your point because you are against marijuana because you got your proven reliable definite facts completely screwed up.

1. Marijuana does not cause panic attacks.
2. Marijuana is an anti-psychotic, antidepressant, mood stabilizer, ADHD treatment and has 3 of the most powerful antioxidants known to man.
3. Too much marijuana cannot kill you, this was proven in the Heath/Tuland study when, in an attempt to prove marijuana kills brain cells and causes health problems and death, they force fed monkeys 63 joints worth of columbia grade marijuana within 5 minutes through a gas mask with no oxygen added. It took them doing this repeatedly for 3 months before they began to die.
4. If you did have a panic attack from smoking marijuana you need to get a new source for your stuff because it was either laced or it was sprayed with pesticides and insecticides.
5. Marijuana does not cause physical withdrawal symptoms. This is proven in over 5,000 years of documented studies of marijuana as medicine, including recent credible studies.
6. You do have mental withdrawals from the sudden stop of the use of marijuana though. This is because it is an anti-psychotic, anti-depressant, mood stabilizer and ADHD medication. When you suddenly completely stop the use of these medications it causes short term symptoms of psychosis.

The symptoms you are describing are caused from the withdrawals of heroin, pain pills and alcohol because they affect the opiat system. Something that weed does not effect.
