Dear lybrate-user. Thanks for the question. ADHD often begins in childhood and can persist into adulthood. It may contribute to low self-esteem, troubled relationships and difficulty at school or work. Symptoms include limited attention and hyperactivity. Treatments include medication and talk therapy. Consult a psychologist for diagnosis and treatment. Take care.
