ADHD Q & A
What are the symptoms of ADHD?
Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a chronic mental health condition that often starts in childhood, then continues into adulthood. The symptoms and behaviors described below characterize ADHD.
ADHD in children
Children who have ADHD are known for being inattentive, overly active, and even impulsive. These children may:
- Be easily distracted
- Blurt out answers
- Talk a lot or talk fast
- Have difficulty paying attention in class
- Make careless mistakes on schoolwork
- Always seem on-the-go and in motion
ADHD in adults
When adults have ADHD, the same symptoms that affect children start trickling into adult activities and responsibilities. If you have ADHD, you may:
- Have difficulty coping with stress
- Experience frequent mood swings
- Find it difficult to follow through or complete tasks
- Be a poor planner or have poor time management skills
If any of these symptoms sound familiar to you, it’s important to have an evaluation and start treatment before ADHD seriously starts disrupting your life.
When should I see a doctor for ADHD?
