Re: Article: ADHD Psychosis

yah, adhd AND psycosis I can understand, but "ADHD psycosis" is bogus.

The troible with wikipedia is that everything can be bogus, and it frequently is.

I think you have a good point there!I have read that psychosis is very scary and there is allways strong emotions detached to the confution.ADD-attacs are just annoing/irritating.

Re: Article: ADHD Psychosis

Well I don't honestly know because I don't have it but I found more than just a wiki article in regards to this first disaster I posted, two exactly. So just to make it more valid, maybe the moderator if it is speedo, for example can rename the thread ADHD and Psychosis so that way I don't have to keep looking for posts to validate it when I get defensive because people keep reposting the same comments in regards to the original thing which I beleive I said:

It's not you, you just posted what you found. It's wikipedia that is all awry. I can change the name of the thread per your request.

Re: Article: ADHD and Psychosis

Interesting . . .

The second article is important because it highlights the fact that one can give psychostimulants to people suffering from psychosis and it can make them better. Common belief (and indeed one "animal model" of schizophrenia) is that since very high doses of amphetamine cause psychosis, giving psychostimulants to people who were psychotic to begin with would worsen their symptoms. . . soo this article is really saying that the common belief is not always correct, and that some people may be needlessly suffering from ADHD symptoms because Dr's refuse to prescribe psychostimulants to those with psychotic symptoms.

I disagree. Wikipedia is for the most part always at least in the ballpark when it comes to the validity and accuracy of its articles (unless they're extremely new for instance, or have been defaced - but many articles are locked in these days and defaced articles are quickly detected and reverted). It has improved a lot since its conception, which is a point hammered home by its founder in his recent attempts to allow wikipedia as a reference in undergrad essays and papers (previously he was against wikipedia as a reference). ADHD shouldn't be your sole source of information (nothing should be a sole source of information), but it's certainly not a bad way to quickly brush up on the basics of a topic - as a springboard to more technical information on that topic. Also, for articles with a bias or which lack sources, you will almost always see a message at the top of the page stating as much.

The host of the ADHD psychosis article is not wikipedia. It is a website using the wiki style of content dissemination. There is no other relationship.

My 2 pence.

Re: Article: ADHD and Psychosis

It seems to me if you are dealing with an actual psychosis you've moved beyond ADHD territory by definition into schiphrenia or bipolar, etc. I wouldn't call what he is describing psychosis -- there is no delusion present -- just poor follow through. Barkley talks about how with folks with ADHD it's not that they don't know, but that they have trouble acting on what they do know.

Re: Article: ADHD and Psychosis

Defining this 'ADD-psychosis' as a specific disorder sounds pretty silly to me. It would be pretty confusing to call these symptoms 'psychosis' when they are actually just results of severe ADD. A defined label something along the lines of: 'ADD with psychotic-like (but not actually psychotic) symptoms' would probably be helpful though.
My first doctor mis diagnosed me as psychotic due to these exact same misperceptions.

I don't have ADHD. But the voices in my head do!

Kidding.

Re: Article: ADHD and Psychosis

i can see why it might look like psychosis
the dissorgenized thought process . abstract mode of thinking . also when im tired and in deep need for stimuli i can easily look like in manic state but its never true psychosis . its intresting to see that schizophrenia and adhd both seem to have pathologys regarding dopamin .and the affect and emotional control seen in adhd seems at first glance like the flat affect of schizophrenia
