People with ADHD are often very active, especially those of us with the “H” switch turned on and the hyper drives set to warp ten.
Along comes Methylphenidate and I’m picking up the book off my nightstand and returning it to my cheerful and happy librarian, the one who used to chide and fine me for late returns.
The stimulant medication “stimulates” communication with, and function of, my prefrontal cortex. The truth is, they had half an hour of stimulated focus and then, sugar being a short lived stimulant, they lost their focus and were hit by an energy surge.
So instead of thinking of stimulation as being inducing action, think of it as just inducing … period. I’m telling you this today, because on Friday I have something more to say about stimulant medication. Last updated: 21 Feb 2013Views expressed are those solely of the writer and have not been reviewed. ADHD is a chronic disorder.  However, as kids get older, they learn various strategies to deal with the symptoms and may no longer need medication.
Every drug has potential side effects, and these should be discussed with your child’s physician. The American Academy of Pediatrics clinical guidelines recommend that symptoms of ADHD generally be treated for children 6 years of age and older. We have created this blog as a way to communicate key childrens' health and safety issues to parents and other child advocates. Given the growing cost of college and the serious economic problems facing many families, these aborted college experiences create a significant financial burden, not to mention an emotional toll, on both students and parents.
Transition planning, however, can make a big difference in helping teenagers with ADHD be ready for what lies ahead in college. Gaining a fuller understanding of ADHD and its ramifications are important factors in its successful management. Adolescents with ADHD need to be encouraged to spend the time they have left before going off to college to work on these areas. Only one-third of college students who received special education services in high school seek such formal accommodations in college.
Over the last decade, several medications have been approved that make the treatment of ADHD easier and more effective.
Young adults on stimulant medications, particularly those living in dormitory or other communal settings, need to be reminded about several issues regarding these medications. In addition, it is important that patients understand that their medication is a controlled substance. As students with ADHD pursue their college careers, they must do so in environments that are less structured and supportive than the ones they experienced in high school.
The overall message of this article is one that urges pediatricians to hold deliberative discussions with college-bound patients with ADHD as early as possible in the college transition process.

First and foremost, my daughter (seen over there on the left) was well worth any difficulty I had being off medication, being pregnant, and going through an incredibly difficult labor.
And let me just say that it’s absolutely possible to live successfully without medication. In addition to taking medication at the time, I was in therapy to better understand myself and to increase my personal awareness.
I worked hard to build my ADHD management skills, and I’ve been supporting other adults in doing the same for about 10 years now. I started taking Zoloft after I was diagnosed with severe Depression about 10 years ago after my second child and I felt like it took away any emotion that I had left, in fact I had more side effects caused by the Zoloft than I did without it, particularly anxiety attacks.
I am also in Australia and not diagnosed until 31 when I was really struggling with my attention differential difficulties as my Dr called them. I have done this over time and also found that my medication helps me cope well enough to practice these skills and establish them in my life. I still use my medication because I find it helps me to keep in place the non medication practices and strategies that help with ADD management. Thanks Jodi, I’m going to push for some more information and options with my Dr because I really think at this stage of my life (3 kids and a full time business) I really need some help. Please tell me what to say to get through to doctor (he is internal medicine) but I also see a neurologist (every 3 months) and I have next appointment in August.
Sorry for being late in the conversation but I wanted to just say that this is the first thing I have ever read about ADD and pregnancy or trying to get pregnant.
I was very torn up thinking that either I can lead a normal life and pay my bills and be childless or I lose my job and be a mother the thing I dream of most.
I do want one more child, so I will likely go back off of the meds at some point, but for the time being I’m enjoying feeling like a normal human being.
Well let me tell you, experimentation with medication and teaching KINDERGARTEN AND FIRST GRADE do not mix well (think 24 kids all talking AT you at the same time and understanding 10% of it)!! I took Adderall XR for 10 years, but then knew that I had to go off of the medication when my husband and I decided to get pregnant with our first child. Thank you for the kind words, Kell, and congratulations on working hard to get to a good place in your life! A new article in the journal Pediatrics highlighted new concerns with prescription stimulants for ADHD in a particular subset of children, but this is far from the first time ADHD medications have come under increased scrutiny.
Far too often kids are diagnosed with #ADHD without looking at other reasons, which are often situational. CCHR International, a mental health watchdog group, reports that there are confirming sources in medical literature to suggest that stimulants can be linked to paranoid delusions, paranoid psychosis, hypomanic and manic symptoms, hallucinations, withdrawal, aggressiveness, insomnia, and decreased REM sleep. So, what alternatives are parents and doctors considering trying first, instead of rushing to medicate children for ADHD symptoms?
Some parents are trying diet elimination strategies to see if they can eliminate some of the ADHD symptoms without medication. Other alternatives that parents of children with ADHD are trying include specialized therapy and extra physical activity. The Atlantic featured an article about a study published in Pediatrics that found that children who got regular physical activity displayed enhanced cognitive performance and brain function. According to The Atlantic author, kids who participated in the exercise program were better able to resist distraction and maintain focus.
Another alternative to medicine that has shown promise is mindfulness exercises, according to Dr. School teachers are observing that students with ADHD appear to benefit the most from mindfulness training. Other research that made waves this past year regarding ADHD is that, as an author with The Atlantic wrote, some children with ADHD might actually be suffering from a Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder (FASD), which is caused by maternal drinking during pregnancy. In both ESI and Medicaid populations, the percentage of children ages 2a€“5 years receiving clinical care for ADHD increased over time. In both populations, about 3 in 4 children ages 2-5 years with ADHD received ADHD medicine, and only about half or fewer received any form of psychological services. During 2008a€“2011, 2a€“5 year-old children covered by Medicaid were twice as likely to receive clinical care for ADHD compared with similar-aged children covered by ESI.
Among 2-5 year-old children with ESI, the percentage in clinical care for ADHD that received psychological services did not increase after the release of the 2011 AAP guidelines; a similar analysis was not done for children with Medicaid since data past 2011 were not available. The data from a national sample of children with special health care needs, ages 4-17 years, collected in 2009-10, showed that most children with ADHD received either medication treatment or behavior therapy; however, many were not receiving treatment as described in the best practice guidelines from 2011. Less than 1 in 3 children with ADHD received both medication treatment and behavior therapy, the preferred treatment approach for children ages 6 and older. About half of preschoolers with ADHD were taking medication for ADHD, and about 1 in 4 were treated only with medication.
Data are from the National Survey of Children with Special Health Care Needs, collected in 2009-2010.
The American Psychiatric Association states in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-5) that 5% of children have ADHD1. Recent surveys asked parents whether their child received an ADHD diagnosis from a health care provider. Approximately 11% of children 4-17 years of age (6.4 million) have been diagnosed with ADHD as of 2011. Rates of ADHD diagnosis increased an average of 3% per year from 1997 to 2006 [Read article] and an average of approximately 5% per year from 2003 to 2011.
The average age of ADHD diagnosis was 7 years of age, but children reported by their parents as having more severe ADHD were diagnosed earlier. In 2011, geographic variability in the percent of children taking medication for ADHD ranged from a low of 2% in Nevada to a high of 10.4% in Louisiana. Parents of children with a history of ADHD report almost 3 times as many peer problems as those without a history of ADHD (21.1% vs. Parents report that children with a history of ADHD are almost 10 times as likely to have difficulties that interfere with friendships (20.6% vs.
Children with ADHD, compared to children without ADHD, were more likely to have major injuries (59% vs. Data from international samples suggest that young people with high levels of attentional difficulties are at greater risk of involvement in a motor vehicle crash, drinking and driving, and traffic violations. Using a prevalence rate of 5%, the annual societal a€?a€?cost of illnessa€™a€™ for ADHD is estimated to be between $36 and $52 billion, in 2005 dollars.
ADHD creates a significant financial burden regarding the cost of medical care and work loss for patients and family members.
Across 10 countries, it was projected that ADHD was associated with 143.8 million lost days of productivity each year. Workers with ADHD were more likely to have at least one sick day in the past month compared to workers without ADHD. Data from a community study show that children with ADHD and other conditions are more likely to have problems with friendships and to get into trouble in school or with the police. The first national study presenting greater detail on how ADHD diagnoses take place among a representative sample of children who have ADHD, as described by their parents. Data from a community sample show that certain ADHD symptoms can often last into adolescence. Discover how CDCa€™s latest research helps us all understand how ADHD impacts children and families.
I moved a book from my night stand to my dresser, some receipts from my dresser to my desk, a dirty coffee cup from my desk to the kitchen counter, my phone charger from the counter to the hall table, the newspaper from the hall table to the end table, my shoes from beside the end table to the side door, my keys from the door to the key rack … you know I could go on.

What would you do if you were suddenly feeling like a boiler ready to bust, but you’d lost the focus you’d just had? We’re going to have a little discussion about some of the known side effects of stimulants in general and Concerta in particular.
This raises many questions that parents should consider before placing their children on medication to treat a disorder that affects 8 percent to 11 percent of our youth. In fact, effective treatment for ADHD decreases the likelihood of substance abuse problems. In addition, the researchers in the Pediatrics article reported that “misuse and diversion of stimulant medications are more widespread problems than abuse or addiction.”  In one study, between 16% and 23% of youngsters were asked to give or sell their stimulant medication to others.
It’s critical that you work with a professional who has specialized training and experience. Students with ADHD often find the transition to college difficult because they were not prepared to advocate for themselves and to meet the increased academic expectations at college.
Parents are now insisting that students maximize the educational opportunities made possible by their financial sacrifice. Ironically, adolescents’ specific high school experiences may contribute to the difficulty.
The treating pediatrician can play a significant role in assisting patients with ADHD to ensure that this transition goes smoothly.
Although the parents of patients with ADHD may have pursued this information for their children in the past, as young adults their children will need to take responsibility for their disorder and find out as much as they can.
The transition from attending high school and living at home to starting college or university studies while living away from home is among the most challenging of transitions for many students; however, it is especially challenging for young adults with ADHD. Sometimes that means helping their parents see the benefits of letting go and thus allowing their teenagers to learn to function on their own.

Students with ADHD have little to no experience in handling the more difficult coursework and the freedom and responsibilities they will encounter at college. If the college they have chosen has a well-established disabilities program, and the staff is aware of and has sensitized the faculty to the needs of students with ADHD, students should have little trouble receiving appropriate accommodations. Difficulties with time management and planning often interfere with the best intentions of college students with ADHD. Now is the time for pediatricians and their college-bound patients with ADHD to work together to develop a medication regimen that will lead to a practical daily schedule. These newer medications are all longer-acting preparations in a variety of formulations and delivery systems (Table). First, they should be cautioned not to give or sell any of their ADHD medications to their friends or to others who ask for it. Under federal law, ADHD medications are schedule II substances, and even giving these medications away can result in a drug distribution charge.

Doctors agree that the psychostimulants used to treat ADHD should not be used by pregnant and nursing mothers. In my case, and in many other cases, medication acted like a set of training wheels on a bicycle. After being in therapy for many years, I sought out support groups to learn all that I could about my ADHD. But there did come a time when I was longing for structure that was set largely by me, and not by an infant’s hunger schedule.

I noticed that it seemed to reduce the number of arguments I got into with my now ex-husband.
I was prescribed a short acting stimulant medication that my Dr also explained that I could take when I needed to and not when I didn’t. Knowing more about myself helps too, just knowing that it wasn’t a lack of discipline or willpower, and how to take care of myself a bit better has made a big difference. Of course that could change if I entered a different stage of my life like wanting to start a family like Jennifer. I think medication is a tool like any other that can help people cope, help them succeed etc. Statistics say 97% of ppl with ADD find a medication that is helpful to them and makes life be just a bit more manageable.

I didn’t work during my pregnancy because I knew that it would be too much for me to handle.

You have four kids, and that means that your house (and many other things in your life) will be in “poor shape” for the next 10+ years, at least! The internet is buzzing with the idea that parents and doctors should try other interventions before trying prescription stimulants to treat ADHD behaviors. Last year, Health Canada announced that several ADHD medications would need to be labelled with stronger warnings including increased risks of suicide after reports of suicide attempts and suicidal thoughts in association with the medications Concerta and Ritalin and even Adderall. That article suggests a more detailed look at the symptoms at hand, but what if the child really does have ADHD? Bernard Weiss, professor emeritus of the Department of Environmental Medicine at the University of Rochester Medical Center, said as early as a couple of years ago that artificial food dyes can trigger worsening symptoms of ADHD. That article stated that University of Illinois professor Charles Hillman and his colleagues were able to demonstrate a causal link between physical activity and executive control.

Most teenagers today lead structured lives and get very little practice making decisions about how to manage their time and life in general.
By having a detailed discussion with their teenaged patients on how ADHD can affect them at college and what they can do about it, pediatricians can help these patients take the first steps on the road to success. College is dramatically different from high school with no adults to prod a teenager and help structure his or her life.
These students will inevitably discover that their last-minute approach to preparing for tests or writing papers will not work at college.
By having a discussion that includes questions about each patient’s strengths and weaknesses, preferred learning style, passions, and hopes for the future, pediatricians can help these students assess their capabilities and ascertain where they will need support. As a result of the problems they have with setting and achieving their goals, overall daily living tasks and academic achievement may suffer. Pediatricians of these patients may need to point out that ADHD affects not only the students’ academic performance but also their relationships, emotions, and day-to-day activities such as eating, sleeping, and getting enough exercise.
Encouraging patients to take their medication consistently so that it will be effective for studying and reading assignments is often critical to a successful transition.
Such once-a-day preparations provide the individual with ADHD a means of reducing symptoms throughout the day and into the early evening, while eliminating the need for a multiple-dose regimen that is difficult for those with ADHD to remember. Not only does this reduce the amount of medication that they have for their own personal use, but it could also endanger the health of the other person.
Further, if patients use up their medication more quickly than prescribed or lose it, they will not be able to receive a new prescription until the end date of the current prescription.
Discussing ways to maintain good emotional and mental health, including how to deal with stress and how to get the emotional support through individual or group therapy or attending peer support groups on campus, is critical.

It was a surprise to my husband and I but a very happy one however with that being said I was not off of medication up until now week 5 and hope that will not cause any complications I am kind of feeling guilty for the hot tub, dental x-rays, few drinks the weekend before during our one year anniversary and medication.

Some experts also speculate that children with ADHD may be “biologically more vulnerable” to addiction problems due to the possible similar brain chemistry of these disorders.
Some colleges are now setting firmer time limits on how long a student may take to complete a degree.
With this goal in mind, it is useful to discuss the following areas with teenaged patients with ADHD. Although many students with ADHD may relish this initial taste of freedom, many quickly find themselves floundering and experience great difficulty managing their daily routines.

This is a lot to consider for such patients, but to foster success at the college level, these teenagers with ADHD will need to address their disorder and begin to take charge of their own care. It may take some time to get a new prescription and have it filled, so students should be reminded to plan accordingly, especially around exam time.

This helped me through a very difficult time in my life but a bit over two years later I would agree that despite the initial miraculous feelings, to successfully manage my ADD, I needed to build other important skills. But in my experience it could be worth persevering particularly if you haven’t even had the option of trying the different medications available before.
A year and a half ago I stopped taking meds after a year back on them and my life was sent into a tail spin, my biggest issue is that my ADD is very mood and emotional and the meds help me feel normal.
Besides stopping taking the medication when you were pregnant, did you take any natural remedies? I take vitamins and truthfully just pray and take advice like yours to conquer through the pain of ADD.
When kids come along, we all have to learn that things change and not everything can be a priority.

Most teenagers have well-meaning parents who have established rules for what needs to happen when.
These differences are at odds with the core symptoms seen in students with ADHD, particularly poor executive functioning, which affects both time management and organizational skills. In addition to lacking the important time management and study skills needed at college, these students have no experience needing or asking for help. The latter includes the use of medication, meaning that they need to become more knowledgeable about their medication and its effects. Finally, pediatricians should remind patients that, by law, these medications need to be kept in the original bottles and suggest that students carry their medications with them at all times to prevent theft. Pediatricians can take this opportunity to reinforce the need for maintaining healthy habits. I was able to focus and block out distractions for longer periods of time, I had an easier time transitioning from task to task, and I was able to slow down long enough to plan my day, among other things. And when I felt like I really had my stuff together, I began training to become a coach myself. During every trimester of pregnancy, you really need to take it easy on yourself and greatly lower the expectation of what you can comfortably accomplish in a day. And until I adjust to all that, I have no problem using Concerta as a set of training wheels, once again. What I wish for everyone with ADD is that they can be supported to learn and try lots of different things that can help them and be supported to make the decisions that are right for them and help them live their own individual version of their best life, whatever that looks like. Ever since I started taking the adderall again, it doesn’t seem to work the same as before the pregnancy.
Those of us with ADHD often have a harder time learning this lesson, but we need to learn it nonetheless.
They say even a little mindfulness training can help people with ADHD self-regulate better.
Taking into your consideration that people who will need used illegal drugs nearly always started out using marijuana, this inescapable fact is frightening. The protectiveness and anxiety of these parents may have led them at times to take over their child’s responsibilities and make things happen in an effort to have their teenager avoid stress and failure.
College students face unlimited possibilities for how to spend their time, and may experience increased academic demands that most have not had in high school, even if they have taken advanced placement classes. They often view these first academic problems as a sign of personal failure and end up in a cycle of hiding their mistakes from family members and friends.
It is also important to discuss how taking medication might improve other aspects of daily life such as organization, time management, and relationships, in addition to academics. None of the psychostimulants had any effect on me, and we even tried skin patches in case the medicine was not being absorbed correctly. I had to change jobs and when I did I started my meds again, found a great ADD only doctor who helped me so much and now everything is so great except for us wanting children. Now I think I am pregnat and I know my doctor will not keep me on this medication while pregnant. I wonder if it possible to just stop or is it necessary to substitute it with something else. The drs have had me experiment with all sorts of meds, but adderall is still the best action for me but not nearly as effective as before the pregnancy.
Add to this mix an irregular class schedule, professors who do not take attendance or assign and grade daily homework, only a few tests during the semester that cover hundreds of pages of reading, and complex long-term assignments that the student must have the self-discipline to complete. We tried drugs used off label, and as a last ditch effort, an MAOI, which i didn’t like because of the dietary restrictions.

Daily assignments, weekly tests, manageable reading assignments, few independent long-range assignments, and teachers who may encourage, direct, control, remind, prod, and sometimes even nag their students to perform all foster dependence. By highlighting the need for good executive functioning skills at college, the pediatrician can call attention to an area that has been found to be critical to academic success.
I do not have insurance and with the requirement that I see a physician every 3 months in order to be on Adderall, I cannot afford nor do I feel I need to take it everyday. However, desperate to find something that would work, I would have stayed on the MAOI had it helped at all.
I worry that if I do get a job, it will be very difficult or that I might not be able to keep it. It is, therefore, not surprising that succeeding on their own at college is so challenging for adolescents.
In advising these young patients with ADHD, the idea of working with a coach or academic or peer tutor can also be suggested, emphasizing how such personal support can help them achieve their goals.
