Children with ADHD Attention Psychiatric Association says that up to 11% of children in the U.S have been diagnosed with ADHD. This is a concerning percentage considering the possibility for misdiagnosis. Many children have been misdiagnosed with ADHD due to parents being overwhelmed by their high energy children, Schools not questioning a misdiagnosis because they get more funding for a child with a mental handicap, and because doctors choose the easy way out when treating a child with high energy. The first reason why children are being misdiagnosed for ADHD because parents are being overwhelmed by their high energy children.
According to the Center for Disease Control, “opioid-related overdose deaths now outnumber overdose deaths involving all illicit drugs such as heroin and cocaine combined.” Another study found that people who have access to medical marijuana are less at risk of developing painkiller abuse or dying from prescription drug overdoses. Prescription painkiller abuse and overdose is a rapidly-growing problem in America, and the signs are pointing to medical marijuana as a solution. Statistics show that about 53% of people who become addicted to opioid painkillers obtained them free from a friend or relative. The only way to stop this is to stop prescribing opioid-based narcotics.
This issue is associated with different negative results if left untreated, which includes the reduced self-esteem, social withdrawal, inappropriate academic performance, and suicide. The literature has suggested that the children of more than 3 three percent in the United States have been experiencing the depression, making one of the most prevalent mental health issues for the children. The higher prevalence of such issues has made the significant importance of the effective interventions in schools. Since a large number of students in their childhood and adolescence are affected by depression as well as the symptoms of depression, the majority of them do not seek intervention or have any access to it (Wei, et al., 2013; Allen-Meares, et al., 2013). Yamaguchi, et al (2013) reflected that there are many barriers at the systemic, individual, and provider influencing the aspects of individual seeks or receives the services.
The study focusses on various risk factors that could result in inducing behaviors related to substance abuse. If the prevention techniques are implemented properly then chance of young adolescent involved in substance abuse reduces. Thus, parents and teachers play a very important role in reinforcing appropriate behavior in
Furthermore, our educational system compels its high school students to develop “life-skills, personal responsibility, and uniqueness.” This method of teaching and learning ultimately causes stress and eventually the exact opposite effects of what the system wants to come about. As much as the educational board wants students to enjoy school and pursue a lifelong career, Forty-five percent of high school teenagers admit they suffer from school pressures which can lead to missing school as well as academic deterioration. Today’s, social impacts among high school teenagers badly affect social development between student-teacher interactions and peer interactions. Student-teacher
In addition, it can also be used to treat anxiety, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) PTSD (Post Dramatic Stress Disorder) and PMDD (Premenstrual dysphoric disorder) (Grohol). However, like Celexa, because it lasts for short periods at a time, you need to take it more often to get maximum results (Koplewicz, 272). In addition, it can be used to treat anxiety too (Grohol).
Barbiturates are a drug prescribed to help with anxiety, insomnia, and seizure disorders. They are not very prescribed nowadays due to the fact that benzodiazepines are safer but still addictive. Barbiturates are in multiple categories depending on how long their effects last. The categories are Ultra short term which is quick to take effect but wear off fast. The second category and third category are short-acting and intermediate-acting which are both faster to take effect and longer lasting, the fourth category is Long-Acting which are slow to take effect but long-lived they can take up to an hour to take effect but can last up to 12 hours.
In the United States, academic underachievement among children who are not fluent speakers of the predominant school language, English, is an unequivocal reality (Fry, 2008). Language-correlated achievement gaps have been characterized in other countries too. Dustmann et al. (2012) found that a language spoken at home that is not the predominant language in education is the single most important factor associated with the achievement gap between immigrants and natives of several OECD countries. Minority language students tend to perform more poorly in school than majority language peers, probably because of limited proficiency in the primary language of instruction (August & Shanahan, 2006; Kieffer, 2008).
Perform a literature search and assess current information on the efficacy of various agents in the prevention of NSAIDS-induced ulcers. (3, 4) i. Misoprostol - Early studies in normal volunteers shows marked reduction in incidence of gastrointestinal ulcer in patients receiving NSAIDs with misoprostol compared to those who received NSAIDs + placebo. - RCT in patient suffering from osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis revealed misoprostol is better than sucralfate and ranitidine. - A meta analysis of RCT showed misoprostol better that H2 receptor antagonist.
Aripiprazole is to be consider the third line agent, although data indicate that it is likely to worsen some patients. Cholinesterase inhibitors have also been used but not reported nearly as extensively as the AA. The data suggest mild benefit only, and the benefit may take weeks to develop. Rare case reports of electroconvulsive therapy (ECT) as an effective treatment for psychosis have been published. ECT has been known for several decades to improve motor function as a bonus when Parkinson’s diseases patients with severe depression have been treated.
It was conducted by the U.S Department of Education. The data implies it is the parent’s fault for not giving the child a good education that they deserve. If they have a lack of resources, they are unlikely to succeed in school (168-169). Whatever the parent has for the child will likely determine the success rate. There will likely be a few outliers that motivate themselves to prove this data wrong, but the data is logical.
Children are the future, therefore, medicating the kids are one of the most concern factors in each and every parent’s mind. One of the medication that came to the attention is methylphenidate or commonly known as Ritalin. According to Methylphenidate: Pros and Cons (2011), Ritalin is use to stimulate the central nervous system and induce hyperactivity and impulse control from the brain and nerves. It can be uses to treat children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), which help them to focus, improve attention, and stay on track. Just like any other drugs, Ritalin has many pros and cons.
