ADD / ADHD SYMPTOMS

 If you have any of these symptoms, don’t suffer any longer.

 

Though it’s called adult ADHD, symptoms generally start in early childhood and continue into adulthood. As people age, ADD / ADHD symptoms can lessen, or increase to the point of interfering with daily activities. Some adults are not even aware that they have it and just feel getting through the day is a hard thing to do. Adults with attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder may find it difficult to make deadlines, they may forget meetings or have outbursts of anger due to being impatient and frustrated in a line or traffic. Does that sound familiar to you at all? I’m sure you asking yourself “what are the common signs and treatment” for adult ADHD?

  • Poor time management
