Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in adults

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, largely affects the small children. In a global survey, it was found that the ADHD affects approximately 3 percent to 5 percent of all children. ADHD can be kept under control by proper treatment but only a few are aware that children suffering with ADHD are likely to carry the disorder even in their adolescence. It was studied that nearly 30 percent to 70 percent children continued to exhibit symptoms of ADHD in their adult years. Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in adults is not easily identified.

Mostly the adults suffering from ADHD are unaware of their problem and often get stuck or frustrated in their daily life, for example, they fail to organize things and find it difficult stick to schedule or concentrate and meet dead lines. The adults who suffer from ADHD may also experience distractibility, impulsivity and restlessness.
