Adult ADHD can lead to unstable relationships, poor work or school performance, low self-esteem, and other problems. Though it's called adult ADHD , symptoms start in early childhood and continue into adulthood. In some cases, ADHD is not recognized or diagnosed until the person is an adult. In adults, hyperactivity may decrease, but struggles with impulsiveness, restlessness and difficulty paying attention may continue.

If you find yourself constantly disorganized, late, forgetful, and overwhelmed by daily activities, you may be suffering from ADHD Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder. ADHD affects the prefrontal cortex of the brain, where all of our planning and decision-making functions occur. Left untreated, ADHD can hinder everything we do in our daily lives, from school to career to relationships. The difference between adult and childhood ADHD lies in developmental and environmental changes. For example, one of the most telling symptoms of hyperactivity in children is the inability to remain seated in a classroom setting; whereas symptoms of hyperactivity in adults are more subtle and may include feelings of internal restlessness, getting bored easily, or fidgeting. However, there is an array of treatment options available for individuals with the condition ranging from individual or group therapy to medication.
