Some children may have this as common thing. But if there is a ADHD history for your son, better to get it rectified.

Psychiatrist Dr. Dushad Ram's  Response
vomiting is not a symptom recognized as part of ADHD However if subject with ADHD is on treatment then nausea/vomiting or loss of appetite is common side effect.

I had a stomach virus three weeks ago and vomited twice. Since then I ve had terrible GERD symptoms. I ve tried tums and rolaids with temporary relief. The symptoms are related to eating. It happens about 30 min after eating. I feel slight nausea and have excess saliva after eating. I ve never had this before and am not overweight or an unhealthy eater.

What would cause someone to have a sour stomach (cramping, soft stools , frequent bowels) for over a week? It happens about every other week. I have difficulty sleeping and loss of appetite b/c of it. One result is weight loss . During this time, I can only eat foods like club crackers, baked potatoes, yellow gatorade, & sprite. I also get a little light headed. It is for a 33 year old female (not pregnant).

I thought it was over with by that point. I have now started having stomach problems like bloating gross feeling loss of appetite Gross feeling belching a lot and loose stools and weight loss because of the food issues. Some days are better than others but not well for 2 months now. I have gone to do blood work and came back regular and liver count was a little high because i was dehydrated from diahrrea earlier that day. Went to get ultrasound of my insides and everything came back normal. I dont know be but i am still not well. Also my anxiety levels are sky high and have had 2 panic attacks along with these issues.

Hi there, I was prescribed Trepiline 20 years ago, when I was diagnosed as anorexic. My dose is 75mg at night. I have had several relapses over the years, but am ok now. I m still on Trepiline (75mg) and I find I do well on it. My sister is concerned that such prolonged usage may have negative side effects and permanent damage (liver/kidneys, etc). Is it ok for me to still be taking Trepiline?
