What Are the Different Herbal adhd treatments?

A: Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) is characterized by having a shortened attention span and impulsive, highly active behavior. The condition, typically diagnosed in childhood, continues into adulthood and often impacts both personal relationships as well as scholastic or work performance. adhd is most often treated with psychostimulant medications, but these drugs are increasingly being abandoned due to their side effects and addictive nature. Herbal adhd treatments such as ginkgo biloba, ginseng, American skullcap, German chamomile and gato kola are increasingly used in place of psychstimulant medications. The herbal supplement ginko biloba is an extract from the leaves of the...


Is Attend a good alternative for adhd treatment?

A: These types of supplements, like Attend, contain many different herbal medications that have not been studied or tested by the FDA for their safety in any patient populations, especially children.

adhd treatment without meds

A: Without the information I requested it would be impossible to advise you, even on alternatives. My opinion is alternatives never really work. In 30 years and over 20,000 cases I have never had a case that does not respond to medication. It have had thousands of cases referred to me on incorrect medical treatment and that is why they were not responding. Once correct treatment was given, all responded.    If your neurologist is a highly qualified doctor surely you should be asking him advice and not me?...

Is there an adhd treatment that helps control anger?

A:  Concerta (methylphenidate) is a central nervous system stimulant that affects chemicals in the brain and nerves that contribute to hyperactivity and impulse control. It is used to treat attention deficit disorder (ADD), attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), and narcolepsy. There is a variety of medications available to treat adhd. They are either stimulant medications, like Concerta, or non-stimulant medications. The stimulant medications are by far the most effective at treating the symptoms of adhd. However, it may take some time to find the right one. It is important to work closely with your doctor and tell him about any symptoms that continue despite treatment. It may be...


Bipolar with adhd treatment

A: Hi Bill: Very often bipolar disorder and adhd are present at the same time.  While both need to be addressed, the bipolar disorder must be done first.  I"m concerned about the amount of medication they have your son on.  With the Lamictal, maybe you could talk to the doctor about replacing the rest with Seroquel?  That would help with the psychosis as well as anxiety.   Then, I would think about treating the adhd.  At this point, with the Zoloft and Abilify, adhd medication could send him into mania--that you don"t want. My suggestion  would be to discuss the change in meds first, then after 4-6 month, consider the adhd medication if it was still...


Age at which to Start Child adhd treatment with Medicines

A: The pharmacological part of the multimodal treatment of adhd is not dangerous, and you should not expect long-lasting or serious side-effects. But you have to be well informed!Having made an accurate diagnosis of AD/HD as the primary problem, the health care professional should have a therapeutic talk about:Patient expectations and goals of the therapy. Sometimes more realistic goals have to be defined.It is important to explain the basic effects of psychostimulant medication, but focus on the self-control of the patient. The psychostimulant will not change the behaviour or conduct problem. Every child will be able to misbehave or make jokes. But if the medication is working correctly the child should be able to control and inhibit negative...


effective adhd treatments

A: If I assume your diagnosis is correct, it is still possible the 72mg Concerta is too little. Concerta 72mg is equal to Ritalin 20mg three times a day. Some patients need more. With adhd the main problem in 95% of cases is the poor concentration, which is part of the left brain"s immaturity. In rare situations it is a memory problem as well as a concentration problem. It is not well known that Vasopressin, used for another medical condition called Diabetes Insipidus (not to be confused with sugar diabetes) will enhance memory dramatidcally.Memory is also mainly part of left brain Thus both a stimulant like Concerta together with Vasopressin could be the answer. Study methods also play a part especially the colour of the book in front of you. Revision before you...

Why is adhd treatment and its medications not covered by insurance on kids

A: Insurances won''t cover mental illness sometimes because it isn''t seen as a physical illness, like something you would go to the doctor for. In some cases, children will rarely recieve help because insurances really don''t see them as having a problem unlike when they are in their teens it could be a problem because of high suicide. But overall insurances won''t cover mental illness, because it isn''t something you can die from. Also, if a person is admitted to the hospital from a mental illness like schizophrenia, eating disorder, etc. majority of insurances will only allow patients to be in the hospital for 21days. My grandson has been on medications for adhd for years. He''s 16. Sounds like a problem with your insurance company. Unless there is a clause in your...
