Although ADD/ ADHD NYC is more commonly seen/treated in children, it has been recognized that ADHD can continue into adulthood.
Many adults suffer from ADD/ ADHD and may be unaware. Symptoms of ADD/ADHD are stressful and can make certain tasks undoubtedly more challenging. Common signs and symptoms include; poor concentration, short attention span, lack of organization, forgetfulness, difficulty starting/finishing projects, time-management issues, impulsivity (spending, planning, etc.), difficulty developing and interacting with others (strained interpersonal relationships), and so on.

Medication for ADD/ ADHD
Most ADD/ADHD symptoms improve quickly and safely with effective medicinal treatment, post-diagnosis.

These messengers play a key role in behaviors such as; attention and movement. Some of these medications are known as; Ritalin, Concerta, Adderall, Adderall XR, Vyvanse, Focalin, and so on. Certain types of medications are prescribed based on individual needs, health and family history, etc. An individual treatment plan is beneficial and can alleviate your symptoms of ADD/ ADHD NYC rapidly; allowing people to feel relief immediately and feel more in control of their lives, work or interpersonal relationships.
