My 7-year-old is a very active boy – extremely so, I would say. He cannot sit still for moment and is often in trouble at school. According to his teacher, his restlessness is disturbing the rest of the class. My neighbor says he may be suffering from something called ADHD, and medication will help him quiet down. I personally feel my son just happens to be more energetic than most boys of his age, and his boredom threshold may be lower. However the complaints from school make me anxious. How do I get my son to behave the way he’s expected to in the classroom? What distinguishes ADHD from regular naughtiness?
Children with ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) often display inattention and impulsiveness besides hyperactivity. An expert must make the diagnosis before any medication is given to the child. Once the diagnosis of ADHD is made, these children can be helped with proper management and may do reasonably well in school and later in life. There are Pediatric Neurologists in the Child Trust Hospital in Chennai to whom you can show your son. They’ll help you decide whether your child has ADHD or “regular naughtiness”.
I was operated for prostatis seven years back, but since the last two years I’ m having difficulty in passing urine completely. The doctor found that there was a stricture, which was removed with an operation. I was prescribed “Contiflow” and “Uritone” for two months without much improvement. Then for three weeks I was put on catheter and after that I was advised to do self catherization, which I am still continuing. Now doctors say that I have a neurogenic bladder for which there is no treatment. Is there any treatment for this? Will Botox help?
Your neuropathic bladder can be corrected. You need to get a URODYNAMIC evaluation done and then consult your urologist. Botox is used for overactive bladder and not for your condition. Your bladder is probably hypotonic and you may need Tab Urotone 1 tablet three times a day.
