Hi there . I was diagnosed with ADHD about 20 years ago but thought I had convinced the doctor so stopped medication .
7 months ago after stopping gluten some of my brain fog lifted.
I tried again through a Psychiatric FNP who tested and diagnosed me ADHD Combined type .
She prescribed Straterra since my heart is sensitive to stimulants.
It has helped slow my thinking down and I am now actually able to think things through like never before . It is a gift believe me.
I am also a recovering Alcoholic clean 27 plus years by God’s grace
Hope this is helpful to someone reading.
My family came through the blessing of adoption so my biological connections are to sisters and generations of neices and nephews.
At least one nephew 2 great nephews and one great Neice have ADHD none with obvious tics except my Dad and 2 older sister with body tics.
Because I was born with crossed eyes all focus on my tics was related to wearing glasses 🤓 beginning at age 4.
If you can get your little guy to experience facial relaxationk , he might feel the difference and eventually realize the difference between tense and relaxed.
I rarely remember the huge difference.
Enjoy your amazing child and his special gifts.🤗
Hi. I have had tics all of my life and am combined type ADHD.
Although I have taken Ritalin in the past and don’t recall any increase in Tics, I now take Stratera along with antidepressant effexor xr . Stratera is working well for me helping me to think things through, giving me some space between thoughts and reactions.
It might be worth a try. A careful caring medical provider also makes a huge difference . After an extensive diagnostic interview I think it is likely I have Tourettes, I don’t think much about it anymore. I accept my tics and people who know me and love me don’t seem to mind. Stratera is a gift in my life giving me hope that I needed.
Yes there is always hope though sometimes I am looking in the opposite direction. If I am tired or have a fever, if too many details of my life have recently moved or changed, or I am just overwhelmed I might miss the hope in my life.
Recently not knowing I was getting sick I had a meltdown all by myself at home.
My faith in a loving God keeps me going a little further when I get down.
One minute at a time is all I can handle really.
At age 70 just began Stratera and find it very helpful. Am I satisfied with my progress? Sometimes.
Go to bed early and if you can eat ice cream first.
One day at a time, dear one, I know your pain I live it too.
Try a different Therapist and stop eating gluten.
We never know until we try what will help. Gluten free is a miracle for me. Less brain fog. Less I said. Gratitude is my saving grace.
