Understanding ADHD symptoms

There are 3 main types of ADHD — predominantly inattentive, predominantly hyperactive-impulsive, and combined ADHD. Common symptoms across types in adults include: 

  • Difficulty focusing or staying focused or being restless
  • Being hyper-focused on a single task or situation
  • Procrastinating or being unable to start something
  • Fidgeting or squirming, impulsivity, and/or trouble prioritizing
  • Inattentiveness
  • Disorganization and poor time management
  • Overlooking or missing details
  • Forgetfulness
  • Low tolerance for frustration and a quick temper

Symptoms in children can be different. And there are less common ADHD symptoms in adults.

*Your provider’s recommended treatment may or may not include medication.

How ADHD is diagnosed

ADHD is diagnosed by a medical or mental healthcare professional. There’s no simple or single test. Instead, a trained, licensed provider will:

  • Take your history and interview you about your current symptoms and when they started.
  • Ask about your medical and mental health history and current status.
  • Use any of several standardized behavior rating scales, known as ADHD screeners or quality of life assessments, as criteria for evaluating you.
  • Possibly have you take psychological tests to assess your memory, executive functioning, visual and spatial skills, and/or reasoning skills. 
  • Sometimes, and with your permission, talk to or interview people you know (like a caregiver or partner) who’ve seen how your symptoms impact you.

Frequently asked questions

What are the most common treatment options for ADHD?

The most common treatment option for ADHD is a combination of medication (stimulants or non-stimulants) and behavioral therapy or psychoeducation. Lifestyle changes, such as diet and exercise, may also be recommended.

How do I know if I need medication and therapy for newly diagnosed ADHD?

A combination of the 2 is considered ideal for treating ADHD. Your provider will recommend the best treatment plan for you based on their assessment of your symptoms.
