Many Suffer from:

–  Unstable moods and behaviors
–  Short attention span and inability to remember
–  lacking in calmness that, in turn, creates an inability to focus on details and stay on task
–  Hyperactivity and the impulse to move, fidget or speak excessively
–  Decrease in social awareness

ADHD is: Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a relatively common condition that tends to emerge in children during their early school years. The most common signs of ADHD are: Inattention, Hyperactivity, and Impulsive Behavior Difficulty Concentrating. It is not entirely certain what causes ADHD, but the current thought is that it is a combination of an overactive nervous system, coupled with a decrease in the brain’s ability to filter out extraneous sights, sounds, thoughts and emotions.

The most common medical treatment is the use of the drug methylphenidate, also known as Ritalin. Ritalin is actually a stimulant drug that normally speeds up the activity of the nervous system. But for reasons that are not entirely clear, it tends to have a calming effect on those who suffer from ADHD; possibly by increasing the activity in the area of the brain responsible for filtering out extraneous sensation. The problem with taking Ritalin is that it does not do anything to resolve the cause of the ADHD, it only masks the symptoms. Continued use of Ritalin over long periods of time has also been shown to have detrimental effects on the brain itself.

The Times reported the data shows that 15 percent of school-age boys and 7 percent of girls have received an ADHD diagnosis in the US. Among teens aged 14 to 17, about 19 percent of boys and 10 percent of girls have been diagnosed with ADHD. About 10 percent of high school boys currently take ADHD medications.

Historically, ADHD has been estimated to affect 3 percent to 7 percent of children. There is no definitive test for the disorder. Diagnosis is based on extensive interviews with children, parents and teachers, and ruling out other causes, The Times reported. “The data highlights the importance of obtaining an accurate diagnosis of ADHD in children, adolescents and adults with ADHD. The diagnosis of ADHD needs to be established through careful clinical interview — there are no shortcuts,” said Dr. Lenard Adler, a professor of child and adolescent psychiatry at NYU School of Medicine.
