ADD/ADHD Management

What you need to know about ADHD

  • The first signs of ADHD typically occur between the ages of 3 and 6. 
  • Approximately 5% of adults in the U.S. are diagnosed with and treated for ADHD. 
  • Individuals with ADHD are more likely to experience difficulties with all types of relationships.
  • ADHD is more common in men than in women. 
  • Approximately half of all individuals with ADHD are also diagnosed with anxiety disorders. 


ADHD, or Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, is a common neurological condition that affects the parts of the brain that allow us to plan, focus on, and execute tasks. People with ADHD tend to struggle with impulse control, time management, and organization. There are three subtypes of ADHD, each with different symptoms: hyperactive, inattentive, and combined. 



The optimal treatment strategy for ADHD includes a combination of medication, nutrition, exercise, and behavioral therapy. However, each patient is different! Finding the treatments that work for you and managing them takes research, planning, organization, and persistence. Seeing your doctor frequently is the best way to ensure successful symptom management.
