Everyone has heard of ADHD, but how many of you actually know what it is? And how many of you understand the sights and symptoms?

ADHD and ADD are two of the most misunderstood conditions in the planet. Think about it, in the past, a good few years ago, a child who was seeming to be unorganized and perhaps classed as naughty, was just passed off as a difficult child. The reality is that that child may have been suffering from ADHD, and because of the misinformation at the time, was probably never diagnosed, and never received treatment.

Thankfully, we have a greater understanding of this condition nowadays, and we understand that it can also affect adults too.

ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder) and ADD (Attention Deficit Disorder) are both neurodevelopmental disorders, and while they are subtly different from one another, they do come under the same umbrella. Here at Trifecta Health Medical Center in New York, with top NYC Psychiatrist Dr Edward Fruitman, M.D., we see and treat countless adults who are displaying the sights and symptoms of ADHD/ADD, and we offer valuable advice on how to manage the condition, not only for the sufferer themselves, but also for their partner and family. This is basically a condition which has a wide-reaching effect, and it is important to understand it fully.

Trifecta Health NYC offices offers many different treatment options for anyone who comes in and is diagnosed with the condition, so there is certainly help at hand. Of course, first things first, you need to know what to look for.

By no means is it the case that everyone who has a few of the following symptoms may be suffering from ADHD/ADD, because sometimes these are just character traits, but if you are suffering from several, and you do have a suspicion that you may be suffering from the condition, it’s important to reach out and get help, to make life easier.

Common signs and symptoms of ADHD/ADD include:

  • Finding it difficult to concentrate for long periods or time, or at all
  • Not being at all organized
  • Forgetting things much of the time
  • Moving from one thing to another, e.g. having several tasks on the go at any one time
  • Finding it difficult to stick to something, e.g. finishing projects or even starting them
  • Impulsiveness, both in decisions, planning, and perhaps in financial matters
  • Social issues, e.g. finding it hard to interact with new people

When a few of these are combined, life can be rather difficult and chaotic for a New York ADHD/ADD sufferer, but the good news is that management and treatment can make life easier, more ordered, and even more harmonious. Setting good habits, and having the support of those around you is imperative when it comes to managing ADHD/ADD, and here at our New York offices we are committed to helping anyone who is struggling.

So, if you’re worried at all about the symptoms we mentioned above, or you simply feel that you might be suffering from this difficult condition, don’t hesitate to give us a call. Reaching out really is the first step to a much happier and much easier life.
