Child younger than 6 years old, before trying any medication behavior therapy should be applied. Recommend that adhd be treated with behavior therapy first, before trying medication. Behavior therapy is the recommended treatment for adhd in children under 6 years of age.

20, female, overweight. diagnosed with adhd, prescribed inspiral sr 20. Helps with symptoms and with oversleeping (10 hrs). I think it might be causing me back pain as well (have to sit and study for long, I do take breaks to stretch in between). I used to have back pain earlier as well due to studying. It could be that as coming back as well. Should I change the medication? Or take the 10 mg version?

Backache has nothing to do with medications. At this age most common cause is inappropriate posture while sitting, sitting for long hours in front of computer or with a mobile in hand in inappropriate posture. Self evaluate for these causes and rectify the posture in which you sit throughout the day. Do some stretching exercises for back as your problem could be because of lack of strength in bower back muscles as well. Preferably do dhanurasana ,ardha chakrasana if you know yoga so that your lower back gains good strength.

Dear lybrate-user have hope. Every patient with adhd/autism does not always ned medication. Please visit an autism expert to see if psychotherapy can help your child or if medication will be required. Take care.

If you have any behaviour traits that is bothering you or your loved ones, it is better to consult a psychiatrist for a detailed evaluation without any prejudice.

Dear lybrate-user have confidence in yourself. Break down your tasks into smaller tasks so you can be more careful. Maybe the workload is too much for you. Make sure you get enough rest. A little bit of rest. Routine, exercise and healthy food can tackle may concentration problems. No harm in trying, before you jump to conclusions. Take care.

It should be avoided if symptoms are not too severe till the age of 6 years as it can cause growth spurt. Meanwhile you can try some psychological techniques like parent skill training for adhd (read it on google).
