How Can Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity disorder Be Treated?

How to Treat Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder With Diet

A: Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD, is a childhood disorder characterized by problems with concentration, impulsiveness and hyperactivity. It can be treated with medication and counseling; however, since a 1922 study by W.R. Shannon in the ''American Journal of Disabled Children,'' studies have looked at the effect of diet on child behavior. In 1975, Dr. Ben. F. Feingold linked hyperactivity and learning disabilities to artificial food colors and flavors, according to the book ''Why Is Your Child Hyperactive?''

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.

When I take the adderral, it shuts everything up so my mind is Silent. I hope this makes more sense to you, and I''m still not certain...


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.

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. Sounds like you had many of the anxiety symptoms...
