Guanfacine is the generic form of Intuniv. So if the same dose and form, yes.
Potentially, look for the same symptoms as found in humans.
No, the two conditions are not the same thing. Atention deficit hyperactivity disorder is not the same as autism, they can however coexist together. There is also no such thing as 'adult autism', you are an autistic adult.
No. Each child diagnosed with ADHD should be perscribed an ADHD treatment that will work for them. The same thing isn't going to work with every child. "Well, yes and no. ADHD treatment is different for each child affected, but there are standard medications and things like that which are used in each treatment."
Yes, there is a difference. Boys tend to follow the classic stereotype of ADHD, hyperactivity or impulsiveness. Girls tend to be more inattentive.
Of course! Misdiagnoses are common, especially in mental disorders. This is partly because the symptoms do not necessarily lead to the disease, but also because many different disorders can have similar symptoms. In particular, symptoms of OCD and ADHD can look very much alike but they are actually opposite malfunctions of the same part of the brain. In OCD this part of the brain is overactive and in ADHD it is underactive. Unfortunately, this has often led to diagnoses of "comorbid" ADHD and OCD, but researchers are discovering that the brain processes are actually opposite, which means it would be impossible to have both at the same time.
the same as an adult
ADHD does not end. it is a disorder that is there from birth to death. However, ADHD symptoms are not the same in people under the age of 16 as they are in over the age of 16, hence the idea that ADHD ends after childhood. there is no cure however it can be made easier to deal with by use of medication, therapy and a good psychiatrist.
Being autistic means that you are slower at learning and do not think at all like "normal" people. ADHD just means that you learn differently and your brain doesn't function the same.
A child has the same emotional capacity as an adult. It is towards which objects their emotions are directed that vary. A child can feel pain and cry, just like an adult. A child can love, be happy, and be sad. All these characteristics can be found in adults. When it applies to intellectual capacity then no children are not in the same playing field with adults. A child has not developed their mind to the point of adult thinking and rationality. So therefore, no a child is not intellectually equal to an adult.
There are actually three categories: inattentiveness, hyperactivity and impulsivity but for diagnosis purposes, hyperactivity and impulsivity are generally classified under the same group.
Same as you would for an adult or store.
