Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that makes it difficult for a person to pay attention and/or control impulse behaviors. Those with ADHD may also be restless and constantly active.
Although ADHD is commonly associated with children, it can continue through adolescence and adulthood. Hyperactivity typically fades into the teen years, but problems with inattention, disorganization, and impulse control tend to stick around through adulthood.
There is no cure for ADHD, but symptoms can be effectively managed with proper treatment. Treatments include medication, education/training, therapy, or a personalized combination.
Medications for treatment often include
- Antidepressants (adults only)
Therapy for ADHD can be a great supplement to any treatment plan. For children and teens, therapy includes the guidance of parents and teachers to keep them on track and organized. For adults, a licensed mental health professional will keep patients on track with organization, routines, and tasks.
