Is Attentrol 18 mg prescribed for 8 years old child, With ADHD problem. Please tell me.
Attentrol 18 mg is not prescribed for 8 years old child, Atomoxetine may increase the risk of suicidal thoughts or actions in children and teenagers with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd). Talk with the patient's doctor to be sure that the benefits of using atomoxetine outweigh the risks. Families and caregivers must closely watch patients who take atomoxetine. It is important to keep in close contact with the patient's doctor. Tell the doctor right away if the patient has symptoms such as worsened depression, suicidal thoughts, or changes in behavior. Discuss any questions with the patient's doctor. There is no cure for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (adhd), but treatment can help relieve the symptoms and make the condition much less of a problem in day-to-day life. Adhd can be treated using medication or therapy, but a combination of both is often the best way to treat it. There are four types of medication licensed for the treatment of adhd: methylphenidate dexamfetamine lisdexamfetamine atomoxetine these medications are not a permanent cure for adhd, but they can help someone with the condition concentrate better, be less impulsive, feel calmer, and learn and practise new skills. Some medications need to be taken every day, but some can be taken just on school days. Treatment breaks are occasionally recommended, to assess whether the medication is still needed. You can ask me privately and keep me as your family doctor.

Dear lybrate-user, Do not diagnose ADHD on your own. Please go to a psychiatrist with all your troubles and it is her/his work to diagnose you and treat accordingly. Your troubles could be due to borderline personality disorder also where the treatment is different.

According to the NIH, these are the three main signs of the condition in kids over age 3: inattention. hyperactivity.There is no cure for ADHD, though both medical and psychological treatments can help control symptoms. Around one third of children seem to grow out of their disorder during adolescence, but the others find their ADHD persists into adult life.

ADHD child can be treated the disease causes abnormal electrical impulses in brain and the child needs counseling as well Certain parts of the brain may be less active or smaller in children with ADHD than those without the disorder. The brain chemical dopamine, which carries signals between nerves in the brain and is linked to movement, sleep, mood, attention, and learning, may also play a role.
