What is ADHD?

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder most often diagnosed during childhood, though some people are diagnosed in their adult years. People with ADHD have ongoing difficulties with inattention, hyperactivity, impulsivity, or a combination of all three.

These ADHD characteristics are so severe they affect more than one aspect of a person’s life. Children with ADHD may struggle academically and socially, while adults with ADHD may struggle to manage the demands of work, life, friends, and family.

What are the types of ADHD?

Inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity are the primary symptoms of ADHD. However, the Prime Psychiatry team classifies ADHD based on the most dominant indicators.

These types include:

Predominantly inattentive

Predominantly inattentive ADHD means inattention is your primary symptom. With this type, you have a hard time focusing, following conversations, and completing tasks. 

Predominantly hyperactive/impulsive

Predominantly hyperactive and impulsive means hyperactivity and impulsivity are your most dominant symptoms. With this type of ADHD, you may have a hard time sitting still, feeling restless, or speaking out of turn.

Combined

With the combined ADHD type, you struggle equally with inattention, hyperactivity, and impulsivity.

Your ADHD type can change over time. 

What happens during an ADHD consultation?

Our team at Prime Psychiatry takes a patient-centered approach to care and conducts comprehensive evaluations during an ADHD consultation. We provide care for children, teens, and adults with ADHD, as well as those who think they may have ADHD.

There’s no single test for diagnosing ADHD, and our team may use a variety of tools to determine the correct diagnosis. In addition to reviewing symptoms and medical history, our team may also request the completion of an ADHD symptom rating checklist.

The team may ask a parent and teacher to complete the ADHD symptom rating checklist form for children. 

How is ADHD treated?

At Prime Psychiatry, our team individualizes ADHD treatment based on age and symptoms. Treatment may include a combination of:

  • Medication — stimulant or non-stimulant
  • Counseling
  • Family or parent therapy
  • Parenting education
  • Lifestyle medicine — nutrition, exercise, stress management, sleep habits
  • Nutraceuticals

Currently, there’s no cure for ADHD; however, our team at Prime Psychiatry designs a plan for you or your child that focuses on improving symptoms and overall mental well-being. 

To schedule an ADHD consultation, call Prime Psychiatry or book an appointment online today.
