DEFICIT DISORDER SYMPTOMS

Children or adults who display attention deficit disorder symptoms have serious problems with concentration or paying attention, or are overactive in one or more areas of life. This is also called attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. When the symptoms finally outpace coping skills and cause enough problems in daily life it may be time to seek help. It is recommended that you schedule a visit with a health care professional for assessment.

Some of ADD symptoms are loosing or quitting jobs frequently, inability to do daily tasks, forgetting things, inability to finish tasks, inability to concentrate and stress over not meeting responsibilities.

Diagnosing attention deficient disorder is not terribly complicated. Usually it is a good idea to get a medical exam to rule out physical causes for your symptoms. A health care professional will ask you to fill out a questionnaire before an evaluation. After that you will be asked about your symptoms and how long you've had them and what problems they have caused you. Then there are certain tests which evaluate attention span and other things.

Upon completion of the evaluation you will be offered treatment. There are several prescription drugs used to control this condition. However these drugs may have side effects.
Some people opt for a natural method of treatment first. Eliminating sugar, food additives and switching to organic food is a first step. Some herbs have been shown to be effective in the treatment of ADD. Ginkgo, Gotu Kola, Satint John's Wort, Skullcap and Stevia are all used with some success.
