ADHD has much of the same treatment options whether it is present in an adult or a child. However, the way treatment is approached is quite different.
Adults may be taking medication for other problems, such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart diseases, therefore your psychiatrist will take extra care when deciding upon the course of treatment.
Psychotherapy, such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), is also used in treatment. Your therapist may help develop organizational strategies to manage daily tasks, and also create strategies to improve self-image and interpersonal relationships that are affected.
