The Symptoms of ADHD

When asked to explain ADHD symptoms an astonishing account was given showing the lack of certainty, consistency or even knowledge of any symptoms at all. Struggling to answer the question yet unable to avoid the embarrassment, colleagues looked on in amusement unwilling or unable to support or indeed rescue the good Dr Vonnegut from his apparent mental trauma.

Should we continue to rely on these individuals to tell us how we should raise our kids? Just because kids fidget or fight in the classroom doesn’t mean they are mentally ill needing drugs such as Prozac or Ritalin. Symptoms of ADHD can be found in all of us at some time or other but it doesn’t mean that we are mentally ill.

Taking a more prudent approach by finding all the facts (not opinions) about what is making your child behave boisterously at inappropriate moments is better that relying upon the uncertain utterances of unscientific criteria. Arm yourself with the facts.

      Hello Eloise,

      Thank you for getting in touch. The first thing that we always ask is to have a full and searching medical examination in order to establish if there is any underlying physical problem that’s manifesting in the way your son feels.

      It maybe that you will need to find an independent GP or clinic that will undertake this.

      What subject is he taking in Uni?

    Dopamine is the brain chemical largely thought to be responsible for reward-motivated behavior, and ADHD is often associated with low dopamine activity. In your brain, synapses are the places where neurotransmitters like dopamine stimulate action. Dopamine transporters are responsible for clearing dopamine from the synapse into surrounding cells once the dopamine has “fired” its signal. The more quickly dopamine gets cleared from the synapse, the less dopamine is available to do its work. Methylphenidate gets results by blocking dopamine transporters, giving your brain more opportunity to get the benefit of the dopamine.

    You don’t want excessive amounts of dopamine transporters hanging out in your brain, or whatever dopamine you do have gets cleared quickly. – http://www.amenclinics.com/?p=6789&option=com_wordpress&Itemid=593
