Re: What to do when nothing works for ADHD

Don't feel bad about trying medications - that's what you're supposed to do when the first one doesn't work.

Were there any on that list of medications that you rejected after less than one month because of bad effects? Maybe one of those deserves a second try.

What do you believe are his main sources of stress at home? How about at school? How sure are you that you've identified them correctly?

Re: What to do when nothing works for ADHD

My 14 year old son had a similar reaction to Vyvanse. It wore off and he became such an angry kid! Ritalin (4 hour version) kept my son pretty calm, almost too calm, I think it made him more loopey and I didn't think that was possible! Concerta has worked fairly well. it doesn't make him all of a sudden totally average, but it does clear up some of his confusion. We have tried I think 5 different meds...it can be a circus act for sure trying to find one that works okay without bad side effects.

I have a 7 year old daughter in second grade....I have to say, she isn't very focused and I could for sure see her gluing her chin to the desk. One of the issues with diagnosing so young is that it is very common to have a non adhd 7 year old glue their chin to the desk, so how do you tell what is ADHD and what is being 7?

I'm not judging you or telling you you should not have had your kid diagnosed so young. Sarasweets on here had her son diagnosed at age 3, and that really worked for her and was necessary. For my daughter, who we suspect is ADHD and Dyslexic, I am going to wait until 4th grade to see if she grows out of some of these childish behaviors before we get the diagnoses and attempt meds. Perhaps you can give your son more time to see if he does the same?

Re: What to do when nothing works for ADHD

Questions:

1.) If he didn't have the crashes, would you judge the medication as effective and helpful for your son?

2.) What does the prescribing doctor say when you report the crashes?

3.) Is the prescribing provider a pediatrician or psychiatrist and do you think this person is really sharp?

Are you sure nothing more is going on? Have other things like anxiety, depression and learning disorders been ruled out?

Some kinds absolutely require early intervention- my son did. But others like Caco-girl take a wait and see approach? Is his behavior totally out of control with no meds? Is he a danger to himself or others? Stuff like running into traffic without looking, risk taking behavior?

When you say all stimulants, can you share which ones? Did you try booster doses with the long acting ones?

Just curious- why did your doctor decide to treat the adhd with prozac or abilify? Those are usually reserved for stuff like clinical depression, bipolar and anxiety. Does he have those things too?

Personally with all three of my adhd kids, I have never had success with anything off label for the adhd. For myself, I kind of had some luck but meds are tricky and take patience, time and willingness to exhaust all options before throwing in the towel.

Re: What to do when nothing works for ADHD

Thank you so much for all your responses.

The first medications we tried all stimulants worked, but the side effect of the anger was to much. (Vyvanse, Quillivant, Focalin..I maybe missing one more)...all had the anger when coming off....next we tried non stimulant intuniv, straterra , ambily and then prozac....we just switched to prozac bc of the weight gain with Abilify...but have since went back to Abilfy bc the prozac did not work....the abilify does work fine at school...just did not like the weight gain....he definately does need medicine at school, bc he cannot focus, follow directions or stay in his seat( grades go way down when off medicine)...on abilify he does fine.

He does have dyslexia and has been put on the 504 plan and goes to the dyslexia teacher...they have been wonderful with him...When we first started the journey our family doctor put him on vyvanse, but after the major anger issues, I asked if he felt we needed to be referred to a specialist and now we go to a pediatric psychiatrist ...we had him evaluated as well... The school work does not worry me at all, it's his anger at times (nothing like he had when he came off those stimulants) but is is enough that I worry...he does not harm himself or others, he is normal rough 7 year old boy...and i did have to chuckle about him trying to glue his chin to his desk..lol...that was all him...

the doctor is thinking he may have a mood disorder...I am not so sure...I have thought about getting a second opinion...she did say we can do a physiological evaluation, but i need to email her back bc we did do one in kindergarten so not sure what she means...I do have OCD and depression runs in both sides of my family...my husbands Mom's side has some bi polar..but i really do not think he has that...we are fixing to go to family counseling since the anger is affecting all of us, maybe there is something there we do not see....

our main problem is trying to figure out if he is just being acting out and being disobedient or if there is really something wrong. come to think of it, he has made comments in the past that he is going to kill himself or make comments about knives...he does not do this often, but i really think he says these things bc he knows that i get upset....we are really being extra strict with disipline right now , trying to figure out if it is him or something else...sorry I am rambling.

Has he tried dexedrine or adderall? Those are amphetamines like vyvanse but their mechanism of action is different, Dexedrine tends to be the most mild when it comes to side effects. Focalin is methylphenidate-like ritalin. I am Bipolar and I can tell you that anything from that class of drugs gave me horrible mood swings. I take adderall and dex now, and its much better.

Are you sure thats so far fetched? I am thinking that because the abilify works so well, a mood disorder is possible. When you say physiological, do you mean that or do you mean something like neuro-psychology or psychological? I ask because I cant figure out why a physiological eval would be necessary or if it would help.

i think therapy would be very useful for everyone. What do you mean by discipline though? ADHD kids do much better with rewards vs consequences or discipline and unless those consequences are immediate and relevant, they wont help like you want them to.

Re: What to do when nothing works for ADHD

I am dsylexic and I can say without a shadow of a doubt that sometimes peoples reactions to me cause anger in me. Society has told us that there are only a handful of ways to do things...dyslexic people don't typically follow conventional thinking.

I remember getting so mad at my math teacher. While doing an Algebra problem it occurred to me that the whole problem would be a LOT easier if I multiplied the whole equation by a negative 1. This made all the negatives into positives and made the problem much less cumbersome. Well, needless to say the "POINT" (according to the teacher) of the problem was to get us to work with negative numbers, he told me I couldn't solve the problem the way I did. I got the right answer, I just did it in a way that was unconventional and unconventional isn't allowed in school.

My daughter, who is 7 and likely dyslexic, baffles her teachers. She is always polite but she questions the teachers nearly non-stop on why they didn't do something this way, or that way. Thankfully she has very open minded teachers that allow her to be different and don't tell her she is wrong for the way she thinks. Her one teacher actually used the phrase "It's like there is a hidden genius in there, she thinks in steps way beyond HOW a second grader should be thinking, but then we get to something that is basic and she is stumped, it is very peculiar."

You should look up the site dyslexic advantage. I can say now that I am out of school, and very good at my job, my thinking WAY outside the box is an advantage. However, in school conformity was expected and it wasn't something I could do and it really frustrated me.

Re: What to do when nothing works for ADHD

Thank you everyone. Sarah we have not tried Dexedrine that I know of, will check........... we have appt tomorrow. His Teacher today said she feels there is something going on with his memory. She can ask him for example to spell a word and he does, but when she comes back to it he cannot..he is on the 504 but feels he needs to be tested for special ed. Question.....I remember you saying Sarah that nothing off label helped their adhd..is this particular symtom adhd and maybe the abilify is just not helping with it...she said his focus is fine.

Sorry, didn't see this. I'm not sure what's going on with the website at the moment, it doesn't appear to be up and running. Brock and Fernette Eide put the book and the site together and their take on dyslexia is that it is a major advantage, not a disadvantage. It is the dyslexic people that think sooooo far out of the box that they truly come up with the new and innovative things.

These notable people were/are Dyslexic:

-Richard Branson
-Alexander Graham Bell
-Leonardo da Vinci
-Thomas Edison
-Albert Einstein
-Galileo
-Steve Jobs
-Pablo Picasso
-Steven Spielberg
-Nikola Tesla
-Jules Verne

MOST people who revolutionized an industry or changed the standard protocol of how we as a society view things, in a MAJOR and global way, were dyslexic. That is why they call it the Dyslexic Advantage.

Steve Jobs wrote a wonderful poem that explains Dyslexia, although that may not have been his intention at the time, it has been taken by many of us as a Mantra of sorts:

Here's to the crazy ones, the misfits, the rebels, the troublemakers, the round pegs in the square holes... the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them because they change things... they push the human race forward, and while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius, because the ones who are crazy enough to think that they can change the world, are the ones who do. -Steve Jobs

The mission of Dyslexic Advantage is to promote the positive identity, community, and achievement of dyslexic people by focusing on their strengths.

Our vision is a world where dyslexic people are known for their strengths.
Its a noble idea but I am always bothered by semi-revealed articles and stuff that you need to pay for to read. Not saying profit is bad, I just dont like how the site seems to be promoting such a positive thing yet not allowing people who cant afford or dont want a subscription.

I think the idea of focusing on strengths is wonderful but I do not believe saying dyslexia is an advantage is fair or accurate. Impairments are vast and sometimes debilitating and I think trying to promote the idea that its a positive, doesnt validate the people who struggle, wishing they didnt have it, or feeling guilty if they dont live up to these standards.

I am prettt sure the irritation and anger is a side effect of the meds wearing off as the mother stated. I won't say there is never an advantage in seeing the qorld differently but generally these advantage sites undermine the difficilty and suffeeing of people with LD's and developmental disorders. If every dyslexic person was a genius or produced massive achievements it would be credible but really it's the odd few

Actually, the site is a non-profit .ORG I don't pay to be a member and I haven't had issues around the website of things being locked.

While certain things at school were more difficult I think of my dyslexia as an advantage, and so does my boss. Yes, my brain is wired differently, but I think that is a wonderful thing....as I listed above. It's those of us who think differently that actually make the world different.
