Restless Child Questions

Im an 18 y/o f. I have adhd, depression and anxiety. The depression and anxiety have not been bad until recent but I kept it to myself. I did not want to go back to the doctor because I know they would give me medication that do not work for me. So recently I went in to talk about medication for my adhd since i’m starting college soon. She prescribed me aderall xr 15 mg. Right away I noticed it did help me concentrate, but then it also helped me have more engery and made me feel very happy. Of course this feelings does not last long. When it stops making me feel this way, im so depressed, have no motivation and im very sluggish. Recently my friend recommended me some vitamins that she says work miracles. One of them being nature made super b complex, as well as spring valley ashwagandha. I have not been taking the aderall for too long, prob a week ish. I want to start on the vitamins because im tired of feelings this way and do not want to go back on prescription medicine. Should I stop aderall to take one of the vitamins? Will the vitamins affect aderall?

When antidepressant work properly, they help to relieve symptoms and .One way antidepressants work is by altering the balance of certain chemicals in your brain. And, as with all medicines, this change can cause side effects, a detailed discussion is required in this case. you may discuss your issue in more detail along with your complete medical history so that right medical consultation can be prescribed. Thanks.

Hi, I had ADHD and anxiety disorders. Presently am taking duolextine 60 mg and lexapro 10 mg at night for anxiety and inspiral 20 mg in mornings for adhd. Recently I started inspiral 20 mg, am feeling very good and doing my day to day activities very good. But I purchased inspiral 20 mg to test, because above medication r ok for anxiety, but I am unable to focus and unable to perform daily simple activities. So I searched on google, and find the right medication for me. But am I afraid, that what my doctor will say? Kindly help me in this, I am living in hyderabad.

The adhd children will be agitated and cannot be controlled and you can try good counselling while other non-drug treatments — play therapy, cognitive therapy, psychotherapy, and special adhd eating plans — have been regarded as promising, only behavioral treatment has been shown to work.

I need to know where I could go and get a diagnosis done for ADD /ADHD. I have been facing similar or the same symptoms ever since I was in 3rd or 4th grade. I've lost everything at this point, I've been kicked out of the house and I would just like to know if there's something wrong with me, or it's a common problem that many people have and can be resolved with whatever means necessary. I'm a 20 year old man and I don't have a slightest idea where to get help. I've tried calling medical tycoons like Apollo hospitals, Sahyadri hospitals and Deenanath Mangeshkar Hospital, but got minimal to no help.
