    Why is it when I was in my 20s we didn’t hear about ADHD and now it is everywhere? Has it always just been around and we didn’t know what to call it and do now? Are doctors and schools just now labeling it and paying attention to it? Are pharmaceutical companies just responding to the new attention?

    Maybe it is the case it has always been around, but some data suggest that the new hyper and inability to focus is something environmental that is new in modern times. Either way it is good to see county school, doctors, and therapist paying attention to it.

    She may need a medication change. She may need additional aid, like an antidepressant. Do talk to your doctor. In the meantime, caffeine often has a calming effect on ADHD diagnosed kids. Try a cup of mocha for breakfast, and a caffeinated fruit/vegetable drink (v-8 makes good ones) before homework. Cut back on electronic stimulation 2 hours before time to sleep. Just a few things that we have found that work for us. Good Luck!!

    I have a child who struggles with severe ADHD and while we have her hyperactivity under control with Quillivant XR, we are finding that her attending and ability to comprehend is grossly altered resulting in her losing things continuously, being highly impulsive and reactionary to the point she is constantly getting in trouble. Her grades are significantly off as well because the Quillivant wears off around 4pm just about the time we do homework. I am about ready to ask her Doctor for a referral to a psychologist in Greenville unless someone has some suggestions for resources in Carteret County?
