What is ADHD in teens and young adults explained by Lauren Miller

Causes of ADHD

Currently, the cause for ADHD is unknown, however, research suggests that the cause of ADHD can be from various genetic, biological, environmental, and psychological factors.

Risk factors for ADHD can include:

  • Brain Injury
  • Low birth weight
  • Exposure to environmental risks at a young age or during pregnancy (ex. lead)
  • Premature delivery
  • Tobacco or alcohol use during pregnancy

ADHD can often be confused for other mental health disorders like depression, anxiety, and bipolar disorder.

ADHD Symptoms

ADHD can look very different from person to person, depending on the way they are presented.

For many with ADHD, it can be hard to focus and get things done. It can also be very frustrating because as much as a person may try to finish things or pay attention.

On the other hand, a person with ADHD may feel very energetic, and it can be hard to control impulses.

Common symptoms of inattention in ADHD include:

ADHD Treatment

ADHD is not curable.

However, with treatment, a person with ADHD can manage their symptoms and live balanced, sustainable lives.

Often, ADHD is treated with behavioral therapies and medication.

Stimulants are the most common medication used to treat ADHD. Two different stimulant medications include methylphenidate and amphetamine.

It is important to find the treatment center and treatment team that works best for you and your needs.
