Does Ativan make you a bit hyperactive?

Possibly,not likely

Hyperactivity
Ativan, being a benzodiazepine, could cause disinhibition in a manner akin to what occurs in alcohol intoxication and this could lead to hyperactivity and impulsivity. If you taking Ativan that is prescribed, I would consider describing your side effects to the prescribing physician. If you using Ativan recreationally, I would stop doing so as this could be dangerous.

How can I address a hyperactive thyroid?

A few options

Graves_disease
You first need to find out the cause for the hyperactive thyroid. If it was thyroiditis due to an infection, it should recover on its own. The most common cause of hyperactive thyroid, however, is Graves' disease. This condition needs to be treated. Either with 1)anti-thyroid pill, 2)radioactive iodine to "kill" the thyroid or 3) surgery. Your doctor should be able to help you choose the option.

A DTR is a brisk contraction of a muscle in response to a sudden stretch induced by a sharp tap by a finger or rubber hammer on the tendon of insertion of the muscle. Absence of the reflex may be caused by damage to the muscle, peripheral nerve, nerve roots, or spinal cord at that level.

Is ADHD characterized by extreme hyperactivity?

It Certainly can be

Hyperactivity
ADHD stands for attention deficit hyperactivity disorder so yes, ADHD can be characterized by extreme hyperactivity. Of course, not all children with ADHD will exhibit this. Some children with ADHD can seem like they are the "energizer bunny". They are always on the go, have difficulty sitting still, fidget, and talk excessively. There are other disorders in children that can mimic ADHD.

Is hyperactivity found in all people with adhd?

Nope

Add_&_adhd
ADD is a neurobiologic condition that impacts executive control. Management of brain activities is under executive control. So hyperactivity is physical movement that isn't properly controlled. Underactivity is the same as over activity from neurologic perspective. Some ADD people are overactive, some are underactjve. Hyperactivity is not necessary for an ADD diagnosis.

WHAT TREATMENT IS RIGHT FOR A HYPERACTIVE CHILD?

See pediatrician

Rollerblading
If you have concerns about your child's behavior, then talk to your pediatrician. Children are different and their recommended treatment will vary as well. It depends on whether your child is having difficulty in school or is also inattentive with trouble focusing (which may indicate possible ADHD) or this is just normal behavior. Your pediatrician will be able to work through that with you.
