What Is ADHD?

ADHD is a mental disorder that most commonly affects children but can persist into adulthood. It is characterized by problems sustaining attention, impulsive behaviors, and hyperactivity. According to the National Institute of Mental Health, symptoms of ADHD usually appear before the age of 7. In order to be diagnosed with ADHD, symptoms must appear in multiple settings (e.g., at home and at school) and must be impairing.

There are three types of ADHD:

  • Predominantly inattentive
  • Predominantly hyperactive-impulsive
  • Combined

The most common type is combined.

What Are the Symptoms of ADHD?

The symptoms of ADHD vary from person to person. In general, people with ADHD have trouble sustaining attention, may be impulsive, and may be excessively active. Symptoms of ADHD can vary in severity. Some people with ADHD only have mild symptoms, while others have more severe symptoms that interfere with their ability to function in daily life.

The symptoms of ADHD can be divided into two categories: inattention and hyperactivity-impulsivity.

  • Trouble sustaining attention on tasks or conversations
  • Easily distracted
  • Difficulty completing tasks
  • Poor organizational skills
  • Tendency to lose things

Hyperactivity-Impulsivity

  • Excessive activity levels
  • Difficulty sitting still
  • Excessive talking

  • Tendency to act without thinking

What Are the Best ADHD Treatments in Texas?

There is no cure for ADHD, but there are treatments that can help people manage their symptoms. Connections Wellness Group offers multiple locations in Texas to meet the needs of patients struggling with ADHD. The most common treatments for ADHD are medication and therapy.

  • Medication: Stimulant medications are the most common type of medication used to treat ADHD. Stimulant medications work by increasing levels of dopamine and norepinephrine in the brain, which can help to improve focus and concentration. Common ADHD medications include Adderall, Concerta, Ritalin, and Vyvanse.
  • Therapy: Therapy can help people with ADHD learn coping skills to manage their symptoms. Therapy can be conducted individually or in a group setting. Common types of therapy used to treat ADHD include cognitive-behavioral therapy, behavioral therapy, and psychoeducation.

These treatments may be used individually or in concert with one another. Each patient’s treatment plan will be individually tailored to their specific needs and ADHD symptoms.
