What is ADHD?

ADHD causes various problems with emotional regulation and behavior. It develops in younger children, usually becoming apparent by the time a child starts school and before they reach 12. While it’s known as a childhood condition, ADHD continues to impact people throughout adult life.

Untreated ADHD affects school and work performance, preventing you from achieving your potential. It makes friendships and intimate relationships challenging and can lead to depression, anxiety, and substance use disorder.

Greenwich Avenue Psychiatry specializes in adult and adolescent psychiatry, including ADHD and other behavioral disorders.

What symptoms are typical of ADHD?

ADHD symptoms fall into three categories — hyperactive, impulsive, and inattentive. You or your child may have one, two, or all three of these issues.

Hyperactive people often struggle to keep still, are impatient, fidget, talk too much, and can’t wait their turn. Children typically run and play even when asked to sit quietly and may get up during lessons because they can’t bear the inactivity. Impulsivity causes recklessness and risk-taking behaviors.

Inattentiveness symptoms include:

  • Not paying attention
  • Difficulty following instructions
  • Disliking focused tasks like homework
  • Frequently losing things
  • Forgetfulness
  • Frequent daydreaming
  • Poor timekeeping
  • Lack of organizational skills

People with ADHD often experience frustration, irritability, anger, excessive stress, and mood swings.

Many of these symptoms are behaviors everyone displays occasionally. However, those with ADHD experience them continually from their childhood.

What treatments are available for ADHD?

The primary ADHD treatments are medication and behavioral therapy. Drugs like stimulants boost activity in the area of your brain controlling problem behaviors. Behavioral therapy helps you understand ADHD and why you experience these problems.

You learn to recognize and change disruptive and unhelpful thoughts, improving emotional regulation and reducing challenging behaviors.
