attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) - does adderall make your brain chatter go away?

A: 5 Jul 2011 Hi, this is quite normal, drugs used to treat adhd will ''calm'' and ''relax'' the user. So improved sleep is expected. Can you explain more about the "brain chatter"? Votes:+1CommentVote upReport Kazamyst 5 Jul 2011Great, thanks Delila! Sure, I can try to go deeper into the "Brain Chatter". Hmmmm... I tried verbally to explain this to my Dad yesterday. For one thing I am also Schizoaffective Depressive Type, and have had my share of hearing voices. This is nothing like that. I guess maybe very chaotic in my mind, a thought will hit me, and then I''ll bounce to another thought. Also really annoying music repeating in my head. When I take the adderral, it shuts everything up so my mind is Silent. I hope this makes more sense to you,...


attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd)?

A: 16 Jul 2011 I also have adult adhd, but am older. My son, 26, has it, too. When he first started his meds, he had no appetite, sweating, dry mouth, and many same symptoms. It will decrease, but I''d probably start with half the dose, as he did, and worked up to 10 mgs. dextroamphetamine. Also, take early in the day. One of the most important things I''ve noticed is to be consistent with the medication daily, and your body will adjust. Or, you could ask your doctor to try one of several of the non-stimulant medications, such as Strattera. Anti-depressants, and some blood pressure meds. are also used for adhd, so be sure you''re on the right medication(s). As always, it takes trial and error because everybody''s body chemistry is different....


attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) - Why did the price of Adderall skyrocket?

A: 4 Sep 2011 The DEA (I believe, or FDA) has a "quota" of how much a drug company can produce Schedule 2 medications. This year, the quota was reached very early in the year (I believe either March or April). Your prescription price likely skyrocketed due to the increased demand, and lowered supply, of the drug. Perhaps you could switch to regular short-acting Adderall until the quota issue is sorted out? I''d ask your doctor if the price is a big issue for you.

A: 16 Jun 2011 You need to talk with your divorce lawyer for advice. You might be able to get a restraining order or you might be able to gain complete custody.

attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) - Is there a possibility of me having adhd?

A: As for what I have read it is about a 3 hour testing. From what I have researched it should include you, your spouse/partner, and parent and or siblings (if available). Also helpful to bring in records of childhood history and behavior. You may be asked to complete behavior checklists or questionnaires to give the professional more detailed information about the problematic behaviors. As for the medication if you still are worried about interactions of medications giving to you by your doctor I would suggest talking to your pharmacist. They have available knowledge to medication interactions. Wellbutrin is used as an off-label for adhd. I hope this has helped. I would like to include that doing your own research of adhd may be very helpful...


attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) - what kind of dr do I see for my adhd?

A: I would you say a psychiatrist Hope this helps Yes, I do agree Add your Comment fragile1Ditto!-(to the above 2 replies) I take Adderal for adhd and my Psychiatrist had given me a prescription for this med. I take 20mg, 2x day and it does help tremendously as far as focusing goes. I thought that I would have some energy being it is a stimulant but as I''m told, being I have adhd, the medication works to control the behavior and to allow me to be able to focus, pay more attention, and basically think before my impulsive thoughts and behavior! I was told if I did not have the adhd, and I was taking it just because of the stimulant effects, that I would indeed have not only energy, but...


attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) - Children have died from taking amphetamine?

A: I have a son who is 7yrs. old. When he was 4, my mother talked me into taking him to the doctor to discuss adhd. He was extrememly hyper, and impulsive. I thought he was just being an over active, 2yr old and disregarded my mothers observations for a couple of yrs. Then I started to wonder if maybe she was right. He was going to be starting school and I wanted him to be able to focus, and sit down long enough to learn something. The doctor prescribed Concerta-18mg. I noticed a difference behavior wise, but the weight loss had become extreme! People were making remarks that maybe I was starving him! Every one of his little ribs were protruding. He also started having problems with his heart racing, and feeling faint all the time. I took him to the doctor and told...


attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd) - What is the problem with Psycristists in dianosing

A: I''m gonna remain on-topic and attempt to answer what seems to be a question about adult an adhd diagnosis. I don''t percieve there to be any sort of patient/doctor conflict in terms of a mis-diagnosis of bi-polarism as opposed to adhd. The main concern is that there is no specific criteria to lead doctors to believe it is one or the other. Based on my own experience, and a battery of memory and comprehension ''surveys'', along with several counseling and interview sessions, a doctor made a judgement for me as to what I was suffering from. This turned out to be adhd. This was in no way a big stamp on a piece of paper certifying me of an ailment with an immediate trip to the pharmacy for a med that was being pushed....
