What are the Symptoms of ADHD in Adults?

Below is a self-evaluating tool that is unique to the symptoms of ADHD in adults. This adult ADD symptom test is not a diagnostic test, but instead a source of information for the adult trying to determine if adult Attention Deficit Disorder might be present in his or her life.

The symptoms of ADHD in adults are often the same as the symptoms in children. The ADHD adult might have trouble with staying on task, staying organized and procrastinating, just as the ADHD child does. The ADHD adult might have trouble maintaining relationships and controlling their mood, just like an ADD or ADHD child. The main difference between the ADD adult and child is that the adult Attention Deficit symptom is often disguised by sophisticated coping mechanisms.

When reviewing the child's symptom checklist, you can substitute the word "work" for the word "school" to equate the ADHD symptom test outlined for children to the equivalent symptoms of adult ADHD. You can also look at the Attention Deficit Disorder test for children and ask yourself if, as a child, you had such symptoms or currently have such Attention Deficit Disorder symptoms.

So you hit a number of Attention Deficit Disorder Adults symptoms. Now what?

First, it is important that a physician rule out conditions like anxiety, depression, hypothyroidism, manic-depression or obsessive compulsive disorder, which mimic symptoms of adult ADHD. For women ADHD symptoms can be mimiced by hormonal issues. Hormonal imbalances in perimenopause and menopause can produce foggy thinking, anxiety and exaggerated outbursts. Women should rule out perimenopause if the Attention Deficit symptoms appear in their late 30s or 40s.

Physicians typically first prescribe antidepressants like Prozac for an adult with ADD, since depression issues often go hand-in-hand with adult ADHD ADD. Physicians usually move to stimulant ADD adult medications like Adderall, Concerta or Ritalin medication treatment if antidepressants do not work.

The Adderall, Concerta and Ritalin medication treatment route is not recommended for people with a history of drug or alcohol use or abuse since these are controlled substances with a fairly high degree of addiction potential in adults. And, adults experience prescription medication side effects at the same rate as their younger counterparts and some of the side effects of Adderall, Concerta or Ritalin medication treatment can be potentially serious.

ADHD symptoms in adults can be naturally relieved without the side effects of Adderall, Concerta, Ritalin or Strattera by incorporate diet, exercise and lifestyle modifications as effective ADHD remedies.

Exercise: Regular and vigorous exercise can be very helpful in reducing Attention Deficit Disorder adult symptoms. Attention Deficit Disorder adults tend to have addictive personalities. Exercise is a good addiction. Aside from the obvious health benefits, regular exercise is also a great way to release steam and quiet the mind. Some studies also link regular exercise to decreased depression - a common adult Attention Deficit Disorder symptom.

Diet: The brain is a hungry organ that cannot function at optimal levels without the proper fuels. To keep the brain functioning at top performance, an ADHD diet packed with brain boosting essential fatty acids and amino acids is a must. A diet high in protein provides amino acids necessary for brain functioning.

The ADD adult can also meet these crucial dietary requirements for Attention Deficit Disorder by taking a high-quality nutritional supplement to ensure that they are giving the brain the fuel it needs to function properly. The Attend line of nutritional support for Attention Deficit Disorder is an excellent choice for addressing the causes of Attention Deficit Disorder.

Restructuring the ADD Adult Environment: The Attention Deficit Disorder adult should get into the habit of making lists. The list should include any and all tasks required for the day, from "Mop the kitchen floor" to "Finish the sales proposal."

Write your list with the tasks of highest priority first. Once the first task is completed, mark it off and go to the next. Warding off the urge to skip around on the list  will take some discipline but the sense of accomplishment at completed tasks is well worth the effort.

The Attention Deficit Disorder adult should also keep a notepad in their car, purse, coat and on their bed stand. Thoughts come and go quickly. Jotting the good ideas down will ensure that they donít go away quickly - assuming the notepad does not get lost in the process...

The alarm clock or a wristwatch with an alarm can be a great tool for the Attention Deficit Disorder adult. If you need to pick your child up from soccer practice at a certain time, set the alarm. If you have food cooking on the stove and you leave the kitchen, set the alarm. If you have an important appointment, set the alarm.

Large tasks tend to overwhelm the Attention Deficit Disorder adult and they often put off large task as long as possible. It is not uncommon for the Attention Deficit Disorder adult to procrastinate until the "11th Hour" and then pull an all-night jam session trying to meet a deadline.

For large tasks, the Attention Deficit Disorder adult will do well to break the task into smaller, more manageable tasks and attach deadlines to the smaller tasks. If you need to finish a large project in one week, for instance, schedule specific time each day to work on a specific aspect of the project.

An adult with symptoms ADHD might find it beneficial to enlist the help of a coach. A coach is a close and trusted friend, co-worker or therapist whose specific function is to help the Attention Deficit Disorder adult stay organized, on track and focused while providing encouragement.
