Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder or AHDH is a condition that affects both children and adults. The symptoms of ADHD include difficulty focusing and organizing, forgetfulness, impulsivity, and the inability to finish tasks. Adults may develop additional symptoms such as addiction, difficulties at work, and anxiety or depression. The cause of ADHD is not fully understood. There are many medications available that vary in effectiveness, but as they have various side effects, close monitoring by a physician is vital. Also, many natural remedies for ADHD can greatly improve quality of life.


1. Counseling

ADHD is a life-long condition that must usually be maintained through multiple approaches rather than quick fixes. Experts suggest consistent counseling can be very useful in learning new skills, managing anxiety, and identifying and treating underlying emotional factors. A therapist can help an individual learn techniques for better organization and handling routines.
