What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder, also known as ADHD, is a chronic condition including attention difficulty, hyperactivity, and impulsiveness.

Warning Signs

A common sign of ADHD is an inability to recognize other people’s needs and desires. A person with this condition may interrupt other people when they’re talking. They may have trouble waiting their turn for work activities or when playing games with other people.

Symptoms in adults

It’s important to remember these individuals aren’t lazy or less intelligent than other people. They just have difficulty following instructions that require planning or executing a plan. This can then lead to careless mistakes.

After you have identified this condition in you or someone else, the next step is to get help. There is no permanent treatment to ADHD. However, there are stimulant medications that can help such as Adderall, Concerta, Focalin, Vyvanse, Quillivant, and Ritalin in long-acting form are often prescribed for symptoms.

Symptoms in Children

ADHD is a common behavioral disorder that affects about 10% of school-age children. Boys are about three times more likely than girls to be diagnosed with it, though it’s not yet understood why. Kids may act without thinking, are hyperactive, and have trouble focusing. They may understand what’s expected of them but have trouble following through because they can’t sit still, pay attention, or focus on details.
