ADHD Affects Adults, Too

ADHD is not just a childhood disorder

ADHD is a neurodevelopmental disorder characterized by a persistent pattern of inattention and/or hyperactivity/impulsivity that interferes with functioning or development.1 In approximately 50%-66% of cases, the symptoms of ADHD may continue from childhood into adulthood.2-4 Treatment options for your adult ADHD patients may include medication. Vyvanse is indicated for the treatment of ADHD in appropriate patients ages 6 years and above, but Vyvanse may not be appropriate for all adult ADHD patients for whom medication is recommended.5

Subtlety of ADHD Symptoms
Symptoms of ADHD in adults may be less noticeable compared to symptoms in children. For example, the physical signs of hyperactivity in childhood may become less obvious in adulthood and present as general restlessness.1,6-8

Coping Mechanisms
Adults with ADHD may develop ways to cope with their symptoms over time, such as choosing occupations which may allow for more diverse activity and mobility or utilizing tools and strategies such as “to do” lists to compensate for difficulty with organization. These coping mechanisms may mask the true impact of the disorder.7,9
