According to Dr. Eckstein, ADHD is frequently neglected in adults, which means that many are undiagnosed. Undetected ADHD symptoms can have a widespread influence on a person’s life because untreated ADHD symptoms can contribute to depression, anxiety, and substance abuse issues.

  • Paying attention.
  • Being able to shift your attention when you need to.
  • Focusing on what you’re doing and finishing tasks.
  • Controlling impulses.
  • Controlling motor activity.

Some symptoms commonly seen in adults include:

  • An inability to focus
  • Being unable to start or follow through on projects that require planning.
  • difficulties with time management.
  • Trouble staying organized.
  • Excessive daydreaming.
  • An inability to pay attention during conversation.

These signs of ADHD in adults are typical, but they appear differently in every individual. While some people may show restlessness, others might have more difficulty performing social interactions or have a harder time performing tasks at work.
