Signs of Adult ADHD

How is Adult ADHD Treated?

Therapy involves a multidisciplinary approach (psychiatry, neurology, psychology) and the involvement of friends and family members who can provide social support to those with ADHD. With the addition of these treatment methods, people can live a healthy and productive lifestyle while managing their symptoms.

Most experts agree that the best approach to treat adult ADHD is a combination of pharmacological treatment and psychotherapy focused on addressing signs and symptoms discussed in the quiz above.

Medication for ADHD Symptoms

Since the disorder is often accompanied by depression or anxiety, psychiatrists can prescribe medication to help patients cope with symptoms and achieve mental balance.

However, a therapeutic approach based solely on medication is not sufficient for adults with the disorder, as medication only diminishes the symptoms, but does not fundamentally change how the brain works. Due to this, most professionals will recommend a combination treatment method to treat the disorder.

Psychotherapy for ADHD Symptoms

Psychotherapy is an extremely useful tool in the treatment of most disorders. Many clinicians believe cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) can have a significantly positive effect on adults who have the disorder in terms of gaining valuable organizational and time management skills.

With the help of a counselor or therapist, adults with ADHD can find ways to avoid distractions, control their impulsive decisions associated with it, and cultivate peace of mind through meditation and relaxation techniques.

Furthermore, if the person is dealing with co-occurring conditions (e.g. bipolar disorder, OCD, anxiety, depression, along with ADHD) then psychotherapy becomes an absolute necessity.

I'll be honest, I was diagnosed with ADHD at a young age, I just wanted to see how accurate these tests were and it actually worked really well. I took some of the other tests too and they all seem accurate as well, so I was decently surprised. This was fun and helpful.
