hi my child has adhd and she fights alot what do i do 

Name: victoria | Date: Jun 6th, 2008 8:55 PM
my son was diagnosed with adhd at the age of 5, he is now 10. i tried everything from fishoils to antihistamine medicine (that was suppose to make him drowsy but didnt) before we got offered the medication. i accepted as i was at the end of my tether with him and have to admit 5 yrs on his medication is balanced and my son leads a pretty much normal life now, that and the hep of special needs schooling. his reports say that academically he is level with main stream but obviously still needs that extra help so will stay within the special needs enviroment. i can totally understand how u feel towards the medication, i felt exactly the same, i didnt want to put chemicals in little boys body, now i worry about him coming off them. i hope i have given u another angle to look at the situation, it seriously worth thiking about.

Just want to say that my nephew was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, and presc. meds helped, but when he reached teen years, he started having additional problems, so his parents took him to Dr. Lawless (He appears on Dr. Phil's program, occsionally). The testing showed he had heavy metals (which can throw kids into a rage), visual problem, brain wave abnormalities, & other deficiencies for which he is in therapy. He is responding very well, and has shown improvement. He was also taken off sugar. I'd urge parents to check out Dr. Lawless' Institute by going to Dr. Phil's website.

my daughter is 4 truning 5 in feb. when we were at the dr yesterday he told me that she has adhd and wants her to come back in jan to be put on meds. i'm not sure if meds are the right thing for her. her dad is add and i'm bi-polar. i was put on meds at a young age and it wasn't bc i was add adhd it was the bi-polar coming out. i'm just worried that maybe it could be that and not adhd. i'm not sure what to do give it to her or not.

my 4 yearold is on ritalin

Yes, We went to a behaviorist and got our son who is 4 years old check and they told us right away in one day, that they could see he was ADHD. The doctor wanted to put our son on Ritalin also, but we felt it was to soon and our little boy had open heart surgery at 2 months so we are affaird to put him on it even though it would be a small amount. He is in preschool and the teacher could also see the ADHD in him. We talked it over with our family doctor and she said it is still way to early to diagnosis a 4 year old with ADHD and that we should wait to see how he does in Kindergarten. Chrissy, I would wait too because if it isn't that bad and all he needs is attention then I belive we can work on that with out any medicine. If he needs it and can't focous in Kindergarten then I might think about putting our son on the Medicine. For now we aren't .

hi how aer you today

Wow I am reliving my past by reading your post. I have a son who is 10 now and I ignored all the signs just blew it off as alot of energy. Honestly I was raised to beleive that ADHD didnt exist it was only and excuse for parents to not discipline there kids. Oh but it is real and unfortunatly synthetic drugs only make the situation worse. They cause the kids to react differently they are just numb. My son on straterra tried to committ suicide. He was only 9 when this happened. I have a doctor here locally that I swear by. So finally at my wits end I took my son in because of school behavior and failing tests and sure enough the one doctor i love and swear by said it is real and the only way to treat it is by central nervous system drugs, ritillin. I can tell you that you are the parent and what you do is your choice but take it from someone who has been in your shoes. You have to take action now not later it is very important because it will reflect on your childs future. My son is 10 now and I can honestly say he doesnt have any friends because of the way he treats people. Good luck and follow your instincts dont listen to what your friends and family say. Your the parent make the choice yourself.

There are other meds out there that are not addictive and don't cause the side effects that Ritalin causes. My son is 4 1/2 yrs old and was diagnosed with ADHD a few days ago. His doctor has gave us a plan of action(rules and things to try) and if that does not work, he wants to put him on a tiny dose of Prozac. Prozac is actually for depression but it helps calm there nerves. A child will not get addicted to it like they do Ritalin and there are very few, rare side effects. My child is very active and aggressive. Prozac is suppose to keep them from being hyper by calming the nerves and with the nerves calmed, he will not feel as though he has to be mean. Also, a lot of kids with ADHD have some form of depression or anxiety(which could be from starting at a new school, having a new sibling, moving, not being liked at school, or thinking they are different from other children, etc) which is what triggers the outburst of aggression. The Prozac will help with the anxiety as well. I was totally againist putting my son on meds also, but the doctor explained things to me and I feel that if nothing else works, I will try the Prozac and if if works fine and if it doesn't i'll take him back off. It is best to find something that works now before his education is in jeopardy. I Hope I was some help.

Hi there, I am a teacher of special education and a parent of a 4 year old boy. I took my son to see a child psychologist. He determined that my son is ADHD and ODD. I agreed with the testing and am now struggling with the idea of meds. I have seen meds work well for many ADHD students. I am not against meds if it will help him with his impulse control and attention issues.

Most doctors will NOT diagnose ADHD until after a child starts school. I am an adult with ADHD, have a 12 years old with it and am sure my 4 year old has it as well, as sadly there is a 50% hereditary link. I have read that many are finding benefits to treating kids under age 5, but I have NOT found any where I live. Please do NOT be fearful of medications, most have been used for over 50 years and are SAFE long term medications, that for many of us with ADHD are a must to functioning. IT is NO fun to be in trouble 24 x 7.

I have a 4 year old son who i believe has ADHD ive done a lot of research and everything relates back to my son. My family also feel that he has ADHD. Ive been to meeting after meeting with professionals and still nothing is getting done how do they expect me to live like this because he is not getting any better he is just getting worse i have never seen a child that acts like him.

It is so refreshing to read these posts. Not because you all deal with tribulations everyday but because I'm not the only one going through it. I have a daughter who will be four in a month. She is bright, happy, resiliant, social, etc. But did I mention hyper? Or argumentative, and stubborn? She cant sit still for more than a minute, literally. Shes four and Ive never taken her to a movie theater, because we'll have to leave. She doesnt pay attention, even if shes staring right at me. Its like shes there, but no light on. She'll even wait til i'm done talking sometimes, and then continues with whatever was on her mind. Everything is BUT MOMMY...she'll argue until all hell breaks loose, then she cries because I get tired of repeating myself 100000 times. She has not been diagnosed. Her doctor wont think of it until shes at least 5. But upon my own research she is probably ADHD. Its not just the behavioral problems. She doesnt sleep. Its a nightmare to get her to sleep, and then she wakes up 6 times a night. Shes 4 and i can count on 2 hands the times she's slept through. I will follow this board in hopes of direction. But im at my wits end, she is noticeably active and significantly difficult.

My family is positive that my niece has adhd but she hasnt been diagnosed because her doctor says they need to wait until she is in school.

I have a question though, do adhd children abuse their parents if they dont get their way?
my niece frequently screams when the littlest thing goes wrong, and she often hits and screams at her mother.

ive researched and i cant find anything that connects adhd and abuse in little children.
if anyone can help me i would greatly appreciate it :)

I do and he is 4. He is very hyper runs around in circles, screams, will not look at you in the eyes and he has a hard time making friends. I told the doctor everything and he said ADHD. He is on Ritalin and I dont like it.

Did any of the little boys that was diagnosed with ADHD have any other problems other than behavioral. I take my child to the doctor or psycologist at the end of this month, not only is he exhibiting signs and symptoms of ADHD with behavioral but lately (maybe the last 2 months) I have caught him playing with his private parts constantly. Recently I caught him in his bedroom with the door shut and his pant down. Has anyone ever experienced something like this during any of their time raising a 4 year old boy?

my son has just been diagnosed and he is 5. i had my suspicions since he was a lot littler and i am actually glad now to know that he is not just a naughty difficult child. he has been recommended medication also and i am willing to try this because his adhd is really effecting his performance and school and i think he deserves any chance to help him to learn and do well. it is a huge thing to take in though. have been reading a lot of books and once in particular that was helpful was "Understanding ADD by Dr Christopher Green"
