Pera and Parker: ADHD Success Clinic 1

ADHD Success Clinic – A One Day Event: Look For Us Soon In Northern VA
My gifted blogging, writing and editing buddy, Gina Pera, winner of four National Book Awards for her book Is It You, Me Or Adult ADHD? joins me out here in VA for an important first: Deep training at our first ADHD Success Clinic. Our mission: to take your understanding of ADHD treatment alternatives to a completely new level.

Gina Pera Presents In Norther VA

Gina Pera: ADHD Maven

Who Is Gina?
Do take a good look at her book reviews at this link, from Amen to Quinn and beyond – outstanding work Gina! And drive on over to her website at ADHD Roller Coaster.org for some of the very best writing and reportage available on the evolving ADHD scene.

Gina Associated With PBS
And don’t miss Gina at your local PBS station as she supports ADHD And Loving It, a documentary that addresses the complexity of ADHD for the public. Gina’s remarks and Gina’s book have significantly helped PBS earn some donations with that ADHD documentary. Just take a look at the number of communities associated with that ADHD series!

What Is This ADHD Success Thing?
Our ADHD Success Clinic will provide a day of deep details, from the journalists view of why we simply miss the diagnosis so often, to my take on diagnosis, the new biology, meds, med interactions, Intuniv, comorbid conditions [now at 170!] – and with plenty of time for questions. Details matter. Even food allergies significantly matter, and are so often at the basis of poorly responsive medical interventions.

When: April 2, Saturday
Just a few words here as a heads up for April 2, a Saturday, details on exactly where to follow… and you can keep posted on the Event Calendar here at CorePsych Blog >>>>> Just slip it into your Google calendar or smart phone, as we will make it a memorable day. Both of us have been talking about ADHD issues around the country for several years now – and this is our first time together, and our first time together sharing these ADHD Success Clinic matters with a consumer audience. Yes, if you are a provider you will be welcome, but our mission is to help those on the street better understand why so many are so imprecise about ADHD interventions.

Where: We’ll Keep You Posted
Watch the Events Calendar here, watch Gina’s blog, stay with us on Twitter and Facebook, and we’ll look forward to you sending us your questions in an easy format as soon as we have the next logistical details settled.

Our Mission: Fun And Outstandingly Utilitarian ADHD Details

See ya there!

  1. [..YouTube..] I always separate the various maladies and approach each with a different curiosity. If he’s having a problem with ingesting the meds, that’s more a straight up metabolic problem, something to do with his GI Tract. Sounds like an IgG measurement is in order, qualitative not quantitative, and after that testing to look at Trace Elements and heavy metals. Hang in there, these are typical findings of a *Narrow Therapeutic Window* explained often at CorePsych Blog… just SEARCH over there. Best!

  3. Dr. Parker…My 7 year old son was diagnosed with a rare chromosome disorder 2 years ago, and apparently it’s the underlying cause of his hyperactivity, and inattentiveness. So far, after 4 stimulants, and one non stimulant, NOTHING has worked for him. The medicine was either too much for him and made him vomit, or it did nothing at all for his ADHD. Should I look into brain imaging? He’s already seen a neurologist, a neuropsychologist, a geneticist, and a host of others. Please help!

  5. [..YouTube..] Type Narrow Therapeutic Window into CorePsych Blog SEARCH for considerably more info… you likely have either an underlying genetic metabolic pathway problem, or a simple chronic metabolic issue.

  7. [..YouTube..] This is s clear example, absolutely excellent, of what I call the narrow therapeutic window. Just SEARCH Narrow Therapeutic Window at CorePsych Blog for many more details. Bottom line, you either have a metabolic problem or a problem with a narrow pathway, too narrow to permit even a low dose. As your doc to try a methylphenidate to rule out the genetic 2D6 pathway problem, but more importantly SEARCH Transit Time for a 69 cent test that will tell the metabolic tale.

  9. ADHD pi – the Adderall kicks in after about 20 minutes. Ritalin and dexadrine (past trial) gave me jitters on low dosage too.

  11. [..YouTube..] I’ve had all the symptoms all my life but no meds help – tried many over 25 years. I’m now 49 can hardly keep a job. Recently tried Adderall. Results? 5 mg (1st dosage) way too much – caused hyperactivity, sloppy mistakes, jitteryness and sweating. And 2.5 mg may help a tad but is woefully inadequate. After a week of no dosage I tried 5mg again – same results – jittery, “speedy”, mind less coherent etc. I’ve repeated this test numerous times. As I type I’m on 2.5 mg. Inadequate.

  13. Hope it works! And see the Duration of Effectiveness vid as well, will help with dialing it in correctly.

  18. [..YouTube..] @kgtomcat Over stimulation is often not the presentation with MPH excess, but certainly can be – a stim is a stim. The aggravation of more thinking when you should have less at the proper dose indicates it’s either dosed to high, or might at the same time be simply too slow in your metabolic process for a variety of reasons.

  21. [..YouTube..] Dr. Parker…I’ve recently been trying Methylphenidate. Sometimes I get too over-stimulated so that I become #2 (thinking without acting). Do you suggest my dose is too high or I do not need the meds?

    Also just fyi, my diet is balanced and healthy, I sleep 6-8 hours a night, and I don’t have any other preexisting illnesses/ issues.

  26. Im doing a paper on ADHD for an ASL II project and I found this very helpful despite the obvious lack of sources and other references to prove his information correct. But still I think that I would trust the information.
