Patient discussion about thought

Q. Could anyone share your thought about this medicine? hi all…my son is suffering from ADHD for the past 3 years. He is currently on Adderall and is not able to tolerate it effectively. When I shared this with the doctor, he has prescribed him Strattera. To my knowledge it works more for kids with ADD than those with ADHD…..Could anyone share your thought about this medicine...Please……

A. I have no idea about Strattera, I am ADHD and I take Adderall. It worked well for me but I got severe side effects with Ritalin. I have found that Adderall has fewer side effects and is safe. Adderall is a stimulant drug and Strattera is a non-stimulant drug used in the treatment of ADHD in adults and children over 6. I have also read a critic in a medical journal that Strattera could develop suicidal thoughts in patients. Hey! Don’t from your own conclusions. Doctor is an individual who possess the required qualifications and knowledge to give the kind of treatment. Do consult with your doctor for any of your doubts.

Q. Is it normal for someone with untreated Adult ADHD to have constant, worried thoughts? As a child I was diagnosed with "off the charts" ADHD and took medication which fixed the problem for about 7 years. I ended the medication in junior high and now I am in college. I am no having constant worried thoughts and my mind is always racing. I think this may be the ADHD back now as an adult, would this make sense?

A. Attention Def is often goes hand in hand with Depression. Depression is often missed in diagnosis because the person suggests that they are not sad and don't cry often. Depression might better be described as a feeling of emotional heavyness or pressure without a real reason. This feeling of emotional heavyness is awful and people will try to find reasons to explain why they feel this way so that they can do something about it. Generally, if a person makes a decision about something, such as paying a bill, this heavyness will lift for a while and the person can move on to another thought. When a person is depressed this heavyness is lifted but only for a very short period of time, sometimes only for a few seconds, and the person cannot move on to a new thought. Instead, the tendency is to rethink the same thought over and over to get, although short lived, a bit of emotional releif.

Q. Any advice and thoughts you have about dieting & exercise I'd love to know. Thanks………….. After having tried with so many diets I loved the nutri- system diet. But it’s too expensive. I want to have an easy and fun diet that would work for me and actually I love to eat healthy. If you guys had any success with such a diet, please share with me. Any advice and thoughts you have about dieting & exercise I'd love to know. Thanks…………..

A. Make sure to have lots of fruits, vegetables, less of meat, exercise and lots of water especially every morning. Make sure you’re always hydrated. It's the best. Eliminate all soda or soft drinks and those sweet candies and please balance out your meals.
