What is ADHD?

ADHD is a brain condition that affects our ability to focus, pay attention, and plan/organize which interferes with many aspects of everyday life.  Some individuals struggle to pay close attention to detail or sustain attention for long periods of time. Others may have problems finishing tasks or staying organized. And some may feel fidgety and have a hard time sitting still. These symptoms can often cause problems in school, at work, or in relationships. There are people who were never formally diagnosed with ADHD as kids and managed to go around their deficits with sheer grit and determination. However, as they are again, the ADHD symptoms overcome their grit and can sometimes have a tremendous impact on their lives. 

Patients often times do not get an accurate diagnosis are often started on medication that could have serious side effects. While they are on medications any medication dose adjustments are common doses without much objective testing. For example, the patient typically tells that doctor that the medication effect has been fading and the doctor decides to increase the dose. This is a problem.
