User :   Hello, also previously diagnosed with ADHD
Doctor :   ok
User :   This is for my son
Doctor :   How long ago?
Doctor :   OK
User :   a month this is really bad
Doctor :   Was the ADHD treated before ?
Doctor :   Is he under the treatment now?
User :   just diagnosed in past year- takes meds I don't know the name of
Doctor :   Some ADHS medicines are stimulating
Doctor :   So if they are used excess doses they will change the behavior \
Doctor :   That is one aspect I have to tell you.
Doctor :   Second thing: If the diagnosis is wrong , medications makes behavioral change.
User :   he picks random people in our family and attacks them and tries to buddy with someone else until they do something that angers him and then around and around
Doctor :   The symptoms you are describing could be : ADHD or BiPolar disorder
Doctor :   ok
User :   His father is diagnosed with phsizaphrenia-sorry I dont know how to spell it, his aunt had a brain tumor that changed her personality
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   When was the last visit with Psychiatrist.
Doctor :   He needs though evaluation.
User :   I think this is worse now but has been going on at least 3 years- he is very charismatic and friendly and loving and I havent seen him like that for awhile- everyone is on egg shells becasue you don;t know what he will respond with- calls people names- threatens them out of his life
User :   He goes monthly and I do see prescription bottles
Doctor :   So what medicines is he using?
Doctor :   With the family History of Schizophrenia, there is high likelihood similar problems
User :   Unfortunately I dont know -
Doctor :   But when his whole personality is changing, when he is becoming aggressive and hostile to other persons, there is probability of Schiziphrenia also
User :   but wouldn't 27 be late for a diagnosis
Doctor :   The medicines he is using for ADHD makes him hypher
Doctor :   it is possible at thi age.
Doctor :   *this
Doctor :   The medicines he is using for ADHD makes him hypher
Doctor :   The medicines given for Schizophrenia makes calm
Doctor :   So in my view the diagnosis needs to revised and medicines needs to be changed completely
User :   I think so- he is more focused but becomes winey if that makes sence- we have a family business- he becomes aggressive in how fast other do their work and states he couls get his job done if... he is like up and down and organizing his desk
User :   meaning I think the nmeds make him weird
Doctor :   Many of the ADHD medicines are habit forming , becareful!
Doctor :   My best advise, take the guy to Psychaitist, have session with you and with him seperately and then combinely
User :   adoral is the med I just found out
Doctor :   Yes
Doctor :   It is ADHD
User :   also VERY important has migrains that he has to be in dark room and sleep
User :   migrains have been since teen years
User :   also for pain he takes pain meds like percaset- spelling? and vicadin and I saw he took 3 or 4 at one time which I don;t think is good
Doctor :   sorry to hear that.
Doctor :   Percoset
Doctor :   Vicodin
User :   He won't go anyplace with me
Doctor :   They are pain medicines
Doctor :   Sorry I need more time to counsel
Doctor :   Time is Out'.
Doctor :   Thank you for consulting
User :   hello
Doctor :   Hi
User :   any other help advise
Doctor :   so even vocodine and percocet are habit forming
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Vicodine has narcotic
Doctor :   Percocet has narcotic called oxycodone
Doctor :   So including Vicodine , Percocet , in addition to Adderal I highly I suspect he is abusing drug
Doctor :   I am informing in the best interest of your child
User :   can I try to get girl friend to take him
Doctor :   Please meet the psychiatrist along with your child
Doctor :   That works as long as she understand him
Doctor :   Somebody has to help him
Doctor :   somebody has to talk to Psychiatrist and explain the current medicines and explain the on going process
Doctor :   I view of addictive nature of medicines, doctor can change the medicine
User :   any advise how I can get psychiatrist to talk to me if I have her name
Doctor :   Instead of treating ADHD and making the problem of abusing others , he will give calming medicines
Doctor :   Because he is more than 18, he has to give the consent to you and to Psychiatrist to talk to you
User :   he got pain meds because he was in an aciident and almost lost his foot and he has every year been in some accident- sprian ankle stictches- since he was a kids thats also important I think
Doctor :   ok'
Doctor :   But right now is there any need to stay on two narcotic medicines
User :   26 sets of stitches, 2 broken ankles, motorcycle accident almost lost his foot- he never rode a motorcycle so I think that is reckless behavior,
Doctor :   yes it is
Doctor :   He has behavioral problem
Doctor :   That is obvious
User :   NO- his foot is ok but he gets migrains so he uses them and I dont know how he keeps getting them- one doctor did say they were addictive and he wouldnt prescribe anymore so I dont know how he got more or these are just left over and he only takes reasonably for his head ache
Doctor :   Do you think he is faking Migraine to get Vicodin and Percocet
