The tendency some physicians have, to over-prescribe the medication has a very simple solution --- THE PRESCRIBING PHYSICIAN *MUST* SEE THAT PATIENT, PERSONALLY, FOR AT LEAST TWENTY MINUTES EVERY WEEK, for the first YEAR that patient is on that medication. This twenty minutes would be spent in careful therapy designed to help the patient function WITHOUT medication.

I should add: I am, myself ADHD (fortunately, not severe enough for medication), and I have THREE hyper kids.

If the ADHD were more severe than it is, we would be in a very bad way.

Our family is very sensitive to the family of medications used to treat ADHD. For us, it is literally,*POISON*. So, medication has never been an option, no matter the preferences of the schools. Instead, each member of this household has had to discover those techniques which work best for each of us.

so i am looking in to meds for myself(adult womin) and am thinking about my oldest doughter 9 .
we have started fish oils and epo and magnesium and safe dose of b vits for her age.
Theas healp, mostly.
i am wondering spesificly what other suplements people think can healp. I would like the name of ingredients, we dont live in the us, and spesific brand if apropriet.
I am curiouse about how much ( i am dyslexic to excuse spelling) meds would healp school work.
Love and good diet and disiplin, hay my girls have it all.
Its not going to pay there bills.
My family has a history with this disorder.
other than 2 jobs i had working by myself(cleaner and i ran a cours teaching children art! yah!)
i only ever lasted 3 months in a job, too slow dident rebemer instructions, took them a whole day to figure the till out, i am very creative i can even do it to tills!!
So again who is going to give my doughter a great salary so she can have a good quality of life like the average expected my most peole?
No takers?
My mother ended up being a sex worker for 15 years, she is a very refined womin but ended up a single parent and whanted good things for her children, like food and electrisity, and surprise surprise she wasent great at maniging her domestic purposes benifit, not that eny one could have done much with $300,and $200 on subsidised rent.Go figure. Must have been all that love and good food she grew up with that poot her in such a great spot in life. Of course she thought the problems were that she dident have enough unconditional love so she made shure i got lots of that.
And she was in to health food, fresh juises ect.
In the end it is esy to get the disfunctions adhd couses mixed up as the couse of the problem.
And as mush as some of us may be luck to get a bit of improovment from this or that whether drugs natural of behavioral, we are all having the fight of our lifes trying to do the best for ourselfes and our children.
Trying to find how to make life fit us best and us fit life best.
So eny one that dosent have this personaly, pleas leav your jugments behind.
Blame is the last thing we need in our marathon that is every day.
We are all doing a great job.
Parents are not supper human the efort required to care for ones children just to meat basic needs is

I have to go with Terence on this one. It is usually the adults that can't handle the hyperactity of the children, whom for whatever reason - their minds are going a hundred miles an hour.
Y certainly it is very hard for an adult to handle a child who is hyperactive...but worst of all it is very hard on a chld who knows that his brain is going very fast, he doesnt know how to slow it down on his own, he feels out of control in his own life, realizes he is different than his peers..because not only does a child with adhd have an extordinary amount of energy they have poor social skills, finding it hard to related to children of the same age...tend to be more immature than there peers, therefore picked on, ridiculed, and usually has a harder time making friends, which in turn is a catalyst for poor self esteem and more acting out behaviors....Certainly not all chldren who are medicated really need to be..im sure there are parents who medicate to simplify there lives, which in turn shows the kind of doctor they have...There are children who are taken off medcation in the summer time because they really only need it to funcion in school...there are children whos behavior is greatly affected by their diets and sensitive to wheat gluten and dyes. Then there are children who need medication, because without it, functioning at a "normal" level is not possible..this is where my child falls... I thank God for medication, and i certainly am open to vitamins or any herbal treaments..however as a supplement to what hes taking now. this is my experience.

At the same time, medication is not the only answer, my child recieves 1/1 counseling for his aggression related to adhd, sees his pysch once a month and we practice behavior modification at home.

ADHD = Absent Discipline at Home Disorder. The cure is a belt vigorously applied to a bare bottom. That will stop the obnoxious behavior in a hurry. I speak from experience, as it worked perfectly with my son. Like Bratism, ADHD is just another fake disease made up to give an excuse to parents who don't have the guts to discipline their little brats.

There is no cure, JERK. If your belt took care of the symptoms, your son never had ADHD. ADHD is a crippling, embarrassing, hideous, neourological malady that destroys a person's ability to succeed and to thrive in many cases. It destroys self-esteem and creates a life-time of self-doubt, self-hatred and an agonizing, indefinable pain in the soul of a person.

Let's hope you didn't beat your child into a conditioned phase of passivity, while the inability to tend to the tasks at hand remain undiagnosed and untreated.

Did you ever have diarrhea? Try a belt on yourself the next time you do and see how well it works.

Tracking was relatively good. When I say that I mean it gave you dates for purchase, processed, and shipped. Only downside was that it took 12 days when they said it would only take 3-5. The tablets did come all the way from India and ultimately took the normal amount of time from the shipping date.

I was diagnosed with ADHD in 6th grade and have taken Indian Stattera ever since. I am a college student now and its worked so well for me that I continuously make good grades. I would recommend this medicine to anyone who is having problems finding one to work.

I have a child with ADHD. I tried the Ritalin with little to no success. I found the drug made my child lethargic and once it wore off she would either crash or become even more hyper-active. Believe me, I tried it for a period of time to see if it would build up in her system and alleviate not only the behavior but the side effects. It did not. After doing much research I found two programs that are working for my daughter and my family. I use Play Attention and ADHD Nanny. Play Attention is a program that builds behavioral shaping and she loves to play it which makes it that much more easy on me. ADHD Nanny (she is young), gives me and my family tools for everyday structure to assist her. Recently divorced I found it difficult to keep her structured because of going back and forth from two homes. Now, each household uses it and it is working for her and the family.

It feels like ages since I've been here and it is true. I just wanted to share with everyone that play attention worked!!! Yes, it did take time and patience but the staff was there for us all the way. We completed the program and are on to new journeys in life and my daughter and I are best friends, something I did not ever expect to experience.She is an A student and has friends. Now, if I could just keep her out of the mall. Highly recommend this program for those of you looking for alternatives to medication
