ADHD or Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder is a highly genetic, brain-based syndrome that has to do with the regulation of a particular set of brain functions and related behaviors.
What is ADHD?
Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is one of the most common mental disorders affecting children. ADHD also affects many adults. Symptoms of ADHD include inattention (not being able to keep focus), hyperactivity (excess movement that is not fitting to the setting) and impulsivity (hasty acts that occur in the moment without thought). ADHD puts you at increased risk for depression, anxiety disorder, and conduct disorder.
An estimated 5 percent of children and 2.5 percent of adults have ADHD.

Types of ADHD
People with this get distracted, have poor concentration and organizational skills.
Some common symptoms are:
- Not paying attention to detail
- Making careless mistakes
- Failing to pay attention and keep on task
- Not listening
- Being unable to follow or understand instructions
- Avoiding tasks that involve effort
- Being distracted
- Being forgetful
- Losing things and being messy.
People with this have high problems interrupting and taking risks.
Some common symptoms are:
- Getting up often when seated
- Running or climbing at inappropriate times
- Having trouble playing quietly
- Talking too much
- Talking out of turn or blurting out
- Often “on the go” as if “driven by a motor”
People with the combination type, means that symptoms don’t exclusively fall within the inattention or hyperactive-impulsive behavior. Instead, a combination of symptoms from both of the categories are exhibited.
Most people, with or without ADHD, experience some degree of inattentive or impulsive behavior. But it’s more severe in people with ADHD. The behavior occurs more often and interferes with how you function at home, school, work, and in social situations.
How we treat ADHD?
Quick Tip: No two people are affected the same way by ADHD and there is no “one-size-fits-all” for treatment. It may take some trial and error to find the treatment that works best for you.
