What is ADHD?

Attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) is a disorder that causes problems with concentration, impulse control, and behavior. Although most common in children, up to 5% of American adults have ADHD today too.

Untreated ADHD can lead to problems at home, at work, and in every other area of your life. Unfortunately, many adults with ADHD aren’t diagnosed or fail to get the appropriate care. However, recognizing symptoms of ADHD and taking action when you see these problems can significantly improve your productivity and quality of life.

What are the symptoms of adult ADHD?

ADHD presents with symptoms like:

  • Disorganization
  • Poor concentration
  • Poor planning skills
  • Forgetfulness
  • Difficulty multitasking
  • Difficulty following through on projects
  • Poor time management
  • Growing easily frustrated
  • Poor stress management skills
  • Difficulty controlling impulses
  • Mood swings
  • Restlessness

Everyone has at least a few of these issues from time to time, but occasional problems don’t mean you have ADHD. If you experience several of these problems regularly and the symptoms affect your quality of life, it could be adult ADHD.

It’s also important to know that about one in three adults with ADHD also experience depression, which can cause additional disruptive symptoms.

How is adult ADHD treated?

Treating ADHD usually includes oral medication and psychotherapy. But up to 80% of adults with ADHD don’t take their medication as prescribed because of side effects and other reasons, so it’s often unsuccessful.

If you’ve experienced difficulty in finding a reliable side-effect-free treatment for ADHD, Rise TMS can recommend transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). This treatment is a drug-free, painless approach that uses powerful magnetic pulses to stimulate positive changes in the brain.

A series of TMS sessions can balance electrical activity in your brain and repair damaged brain connections, thereby creating clear pathways for your neurons to interact. This, in turn, organizes your brain, streamlines thought processes and eases ADHD symptoms.

If you have depression alongside ADHD, the team could recommend ketamine infusions, stimulating the regrowth of damaged brain connections for an almost immediate lifting of depression symptoms.

The Rise TMS team also recommends psychotherapy, like cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT), to support your treatment results.

TMS can awaken dormant parts of your brain and calm negative thought patterns in people with ADHD. To learn if it can help you, arrange your consultation at Rise TMS by calling the office or clicking the online scheduler now.
