ADHD Q & A

What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a condition that makes it difficult for you to concentrate and stay focused on tasks. With ADHD, you may also struggle to sit still for any period of time or control impulsive behaviors.

In many cases, ADHD is diagnosed in childhood, but the diagnosis can also be made in adulthood. While the symptoms of ADHD can be similar to the usual rambunctious behavior of children, ADHD can begin to interfere with schoolwork, your job, or even your relationships.

When ADHD symptoms begin to affect different areas of your life, the Pansuriya Clinical Corporation medical team can evaluate your condition to determine if you have ADHD or if your symptoms relate to another underlying health issue.

There isn’t a clear understanding of what causes ADHD, but a number of factors may increase your risk for the condition, such as genetics and environmental toxins.

How is ADHD diagnosed?

The medical team at Pansuriya Clinical Corporation is skilled in evaluating your symptoms and medical history to identify ADHD in you or your child.

Using age-appropriate questions, your provider learns more about the noticeable symptoms of ADHD, such as:

  • Impulsive behaviors
  • Frequent restlessness
  • Difficulties paying attention

Your doctor may also request to speak with your child’s teachers and other caregivers to determine how these issues affect your child’s daily life. You may need to discuss how ADHD symptoms interfere with your work, home life, and relationships.

How is ADHD treated?

Treating ADHD requires a custom plan to address the specific issues that reduce your quality of life. Your Pansuriya Clinical Corporation provider focuses on managing disruptive behaviors and equipping you with the coping skills you need to thrive in spite of ADHD.

For both adults and children with ADHD, there are medications that can control your impulsivity and increase your focus and concentration abilities. When medications are combined with behavioral and talk therapy, the results of treatment can be beneficial for both your short-term and long-term physical and mental health.

Children may also benefit from the Pansuriya Clinical Corporation medical team working with family members, teachers, and other caregivers to ensure your child has what they need to be successful at school, at home, and in social environments.
