Adult ADHD

(BlackDoctor.org) — Most of the talk and research about attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) has been directed towards the childhood version. Most people mistakenly believe that the disorder affects only young people, and that symptoms dissipate by the time a person becomes an adult. However, this is simply not the case. Several studies show that attention deficit disorder (ADD), with or without hyperactivity, is a lifelong problem for up to 5% of adults.
