ADHD in Adults

Concentration problems and trouble in focusing on one task at a time can be termed as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder or ADHD, in rare and severe cases. While most of the cases are identified in one's childhood, it has been seen that many cases persist into adulthood while still others go completely undiagnosed. This mental health disorder comes with a number of symptoms and management methods. Read on to know more.

  • Symptoms: While many patients suffering from this disorder may not display any obvious symptoms at a young age as children are supposed to be brimming with energy, the symptoms for adult ADHD, start to show up in a more obvious fashion. Wavering concentration and low levels of focus along with disorganised living with impulsiveness are the first signs of adult ADHD. Such adults also have trouble when it comes to finishing one task at a time, or even focusing on a task for a prolonged period of time. Bouts of impatience and excessive activity can also show up as symptoms, while restlessness is a quality that most of these patients seem to possess.
  • Diagnosis: The diagnosis of this condition is slightly difficult because most adults may complain of some or the other symptoms related to this condition at some point in their lives. Anxiety and mood swing related symptoms can help in diagnosing the condition in a better manner. If the condition ends up disrupting your normal life, work, socialising and behaviour in general, then you may want to see a doctor regarding the same, so that proper diagnosis may take place.
  • Causes: While genetic predisposition is said to be the foremost cause of this condition, especially when it continues well into adulthood, there are various environmental factors that may also have a significant bearing on the onset of the condition. Exposure as a child increases the risk of falling prey to this condition. Also, when there are problems with the central nervous system during the developing years, the patient may start to develop symptoms connected with this disorder later on.
  • Treatment: Stimulants and other medication like anti-depressants, nonstimulant amphetamine are also used for treating this condition along with therapy and psychological counselling for better organisation in life.

My son 1 years 4 months had pus cells in throat and had been prescribed augmentin duo (4 ml twice daily) but got rashes and was given Azee (5 ml once daily) antibiotic. Bimistake I continued both antibiotics 3 doses. Instead of only Azee. Baby had loose stools. Now I have stopped augmentin and rashes have gone. Just wanted to know if any other side effect of two antibiotics would have happened. I am very worried. Please clarify.

Every vaccine is compulsory if it is providing protection to your child. This vaccine prevents child from 3 dreadful diseases like pneumonia; meningitis; otitis media and sepsis. If affortability is not the criteria you go for this vaccination either of the 2 vaccinations as my colleague has mentioned.

7.2 kgs is alright for a 1.5 year old child. There is nothing to worry about her weight. Still you can give her a healthy and nutritious diet to ensure that she is having healthy mental and physical development. For this, give her egg yolks, curd, fruit shakes, besan cheela, chicken soup, fish, vegetables, prantha.

My six years old son has been passing stool in clothes in day as well as in night. We have consulted more than doctors but no result. Please tell us the possible cause of this?

It is called encopresis and usually due to psychological problem. Find out any stress inducing events in the family or school. It will resolve slowly. Get an mri spine to rule out a neurological problem which sometimes may cause that.

Hi Pallavi Head injury may cause any kind of symptoms depending on the area of inury if any in brain. He needs to be treated properly. Homoeopathic treatment offers good solution for this problem as it cures the effects of injury to brain in any form. I suggest this medicine. Give for one week and report after that. 1. Nat-sulph 200/1dose/stat. 2. Saclac 30/ thrice daily for 7 days.

If you are feeding your baby then this type of menstruation problem is seen in mothers. Menses comes after 2 to 3months but you may also conceive during this period so use contraception.

He was treated by doctor as per clinical exam. The widely recommended period is six months by world health organisation. If cough and fever recur meet your doctor. Repeat mantoux test does not reflect progress or worsening except special circum stances such as hiv or diabetes or cancer. Many in our country are positive for mantoux because of bcg vaccination in childhood.

Give genticin eye drops, two drops in each eye for 2 to 3 days. If the baby is drinking milk properly and sleeping passing urine and motion regularly, you need not worry regarding weight gain. They will grow. May be slow but they won't loose weight.

U give him one stigma of Saffron in milk daily. Paste of Jaayfal, prepared by rubbing jaayfal nut on hard stony surface, may also be given to get rid of frequent attacks of cold n cough in this early age. It will also increase immunity. It may be given for 15 days. N, may be repeated next month. Massage with Lal tel or Olive oil on whole body, will be of additional use.

Do not stop breast feeding. Your child is absolutely normal and does not require any medication. This condition is called breast milk diarrhea. This is very normal that child who is on exclusive breast feeding may pass 10 times motion per day. You need to consult your pediatrician only when there is blood in stool. If your child is alert active playful accepting mothers milk and gaining weight 20 to 30 gms a day you need not worry about. Please continue exclusive mothers milk for first 6 months. No medical intervention is required. Best wishes.

10 month baby shall have hardly mono syllabus words. So you have still time to think about purpose ful words. Wait a bit. Feed child s brain with rhymes and simple words. Let other children play with baby. More and more they listen more and more they speak. Refer Dr. Glenn doman article on web. It would be very helpful to you. Regards.
